“Lovely Holiday home.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed here for a week end of Sept owner was very helpful, and clear instructions were left, The bungalow itself a delight, clean and comfortable with everything you needed, loved the fact that there were side gates so the dog couldn't get out, well what can I say about the views at the back of property but truly amazing to sit out there and look at it not only this but you can hear the horses too and the morning cockerel. Lovely sun shine around the property too and the locals really friendly especially the pub down through the alley , The owner there made us very welcome, There is plenty of sight seeing around this little village, includes Salcombe, kingsbridge, Bigbury all wonderful . Also the bath is wonderful the bungalow is run on solar panels and the water is so hot you can also keep your towels nice and toasty on the radiator the bath is really comfortable with low lighting too . Thank you for a lovely holiday Debbie .

“Fantastic views, excellent location.”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We found Tubbs Delight had everything we needed. It was spacious and very comfortable. The bedrooms and sitting room were very comfortable indeed . The kitchen was stocked with all the equipment one would need, and very spacious. There was loads of hot water and the bathroom was nicely decorated. The whole property was very clean and very well maintained. The nearby garage shop had all the things we needed in the way of shopping. Some nice walks here for dog owners, and the coast is quite easily reachedThe owner was very helpful. Above all it was a great place to stay if one wants a very quiet location but which is also very convenient for all the amenities of this popular holiday area.

Tubbs Delight has always been a great family holiday home, having been a family holiday home for 40 years. Great improvements have been carried out in all those years and I have plans to improve the childrens bunk bed room to make it even better. Looking forward to you returning again.

Thanks for a brilliant review. I love the fact that you pointed out its "comfortable, clean and quite spacious" but not luxurious because I believe my prices are extremely reasonable. I do try to maintain Tubbs Delight to a high standard and enhance it every year.
