The bungalow itself is located in Malborough village but 5 mins from Salcombe, making it a perfect setting for outdoor activities including sailing, diving and walking. Come rain or shine there are attractions for all, the children would enjoy Woodlands theme park, historians would love the many National Trust houses, such as Overbecks and Saltram House, and walkers will love the 232 miles of footpaths and coastal paths. There are also several excellent golf courses nearby. The cities of Plymouth and Exeter are within easy reach and are great for shopping and packed with museums, art galleries and other attractions such as the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth.More

Dog friendly holiday cottage with jacuzzi
Tubbs is a great little spot for relaxing with the added benefit of a great Jacuzzi and a nice wood burner to keep you warm in the lounge, pubs are within easy walking distance from the house. There are great little walks to the sea with nice breakfast spots along the way. Will hopefully be visiting again with our springer Maggie. 😊

Lovely accommodation in a great location
Malborough is a pretty little village perfectly located for the best places to visit in the area (Salcombe, Hope Cove, Thurlestone etc) and Tubbs Delight is the ideal accommodation. The bungalow is spacious and comfortable and with everything you could possibly need. The view from the sitting room, kitchen/diner and garden is to die for and the hot tub is a wonderful added extra.

Lovely accommodation well equipped with amazing views
Tubbs Delight is lovely accommodation that is well equipped and comfortable. The views are stunning, I have never seen so many stars at night. Lovely village with pubs and shops so you don’t have to drive if you don’t want to. Plenty of walks from the door. Will definitely be back.

Delightful stay at Christmas
Tubbs delight was fantastic in every way, the bungalow was beautiful well equipped, spotlessly clean and had all the mod cons to make your stay easy and stress free, the beds were extremely comfortable. My dogs were comfortable and the doggy bag of goodies were again well equipped and full of blanket and toys, really everything you need for a comfortable doggo stay ... The hot tub was brilliant what a luxury. The shops were very close too Big thankyou Debbie. See you in April 2022

Perfect doggy holiday
We spent a lovely week at Tubbs Delight with our 2 dogs. The property is comfortable and well-equipped, it was very handy to have a garage to dry the dogs and wet walking clothes and a lovely surprise that the hosepipe produced warm water! The Old Inn is a very welcoming pub only a couple of minutes walk away (as is the petrol station Co-op). Perfect base for exploring the area by car but on 3 days we walked from the property, following local footpaths and bridleways down to the coast. Also managed to squeeze in Bolberry Down parkrun on the Saturday morning after we'd packed up and left. Would definitely recommend this place and would like to return.

Gosh it certainly sounds like you packed loads into your week at Tubbs Delight. Your review is most appreciated. Hope you found the dogs towels I left to dry the dogs. The 2 pubs in the village are so handy especially when you don't feel like cooking on holiday. Looking forward to you staying again at Tubbs Delight.

Breathtaking views!
We’ve just returned from a 5-night stay at Tubbs Delight with our dogs and can honestly say we loved every minute of it. The view from the back of the property is breathtaking and a bonus when enjoying it from the hot tub! It’s very central for visiting lots of wonderful places (Dartmoor, Dartmouth, Salcombe, beautiful Hope Cove and the South Devon coastal path). The property is fully equipped, not that we did much cooking as there were so many amazing places to eat locally. We highly recommend it!

Fabulous Winter get away
We stayed at tubbs delight for 3 nights. Malborough itself is a very sweet little place, with a couple of pubs and a shop so you don’t always have to hop in the car. It is a great base for exploring Hope cove, Salcombe, kingsbridge etc. The house itself is lovely, well kitted out and nice and warm! The hot tub is a bonus ! Worth a stay !
