“A comfortable, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This is a wonderful property in a great location for walking and sightseeing. Tubs Delight is so comfortable and the open fireplace enables you to create a wonderul relaxing atmosphere after a relaxing day walking the dog. Close to two watering holes and the local, incredibly well-stocked small supermarket, Tubbs Delight is an ideal place to forget all the worries in your world and just relax. Scrupulously clean and extremely well appointed it is somewhere to return year after year.

“If only it was my home ”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed for a week in February. The weather wasn't always fantastic but going back to Tubbs Delight each evening made it a holiday to remember. The log fire was lovely to sit by after a good walk and a Jacuzzi on the decking, even though it was frosty.
We hope to be back soon. A great place in a great location.

“Lovely Accommodation in Peaceful Location”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a very enjoyable week at Tubbs Delight. The information provided by the owner, Debbie prior to our arrival was very informative and gave us an insight in to the immediate area to plan our walks (lots on doorstep).
Tubbs Delight is located in a very quiet road, which is tucked away in the village of Malborough, The accommodation surpassed our expectations, it had very modern appliances, was very well decorated and very well maintained (great instruction manual provided re usage for us dinosaurs). The bedrooms were very good, plenty of storage space, the only minor issue we had is that I am 6'5ft and the single bed was rather small.
The living room was great, new leather sofa, large wall mounted TV and DVD player. The patio doors from the living room lead to a good size decking area (there is rattan seating/furniture available) and hot tub. The views like others have said are truly fantastic and stretched as far as Bigbury.
We took our small dog with us for the first time and were concerned before going regarding whether he could get out of the garden, but it is very well enclosed and we experienced no problems at all.
There is off road parking for one car, and plenty of space outside of the property for an additional vehicle.
The nearest beaches at South Milton (beautiful), Bantham and Thurlestone can all be reached in a 10-15 minute drive. Salcombe is no more than a 5 minute drive from Tubbs Delight. There is a limited bus service from Malborough to Salcombe and Thurleston (number 606) for those who do not wish to drive.
Overall, we were all very pleased and would definitely consider returning in the future.

“Perfect location for dogs and beautiful beach walks”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Thank you Debbie for a great week in your bungalow. Beautiful views, well equipped kitchen and perfect for dogs with hard floors. We were very impressed with the bag of dog friendly items. Also built in USB plug sockets were very useful.
We visited a different bay each day and being early in the season we were able to take our five dogs with us on the beaches. It was a bit harder work cycling those hills!
The bungalow was very clean and we will recommend it to others as a place to stay.
Debbie was easy to communicate with by e mail to make this booking.

Wow you cycled, I'm very impressed. I know as I have taken some friends from the PAC triathlon club, and we found it tough. The views from the top of the hills are worth it. I'm adding to my dog friendly bag with holiday collars which can be written on with indelible ink incase they go missing while your on holiday. Glad you like the USB sockets. Will be great to hear from you again. Thanks
