Driftwood is an enchanting thatched cottage situated in Malborough, just outside of Salcombe.
This village provides a peaceful, picturesque setting, with various local amenities, including a village shop, petrol station, church, children’s play area and two popular pubs.
It is situated just a short drive from Salcombe and Kingsbridge and a similar distance away from the coast, offering a nearby selection of stunning beaches, with the closest being Hope Cove.
This thatched cottage is full of charm and character, providing a warm, welcoming feel on arrival. It has been refurbished to a high standard in the last couple of years, with both a new kitchen and bathroom fitted to the abode and new carpets to the stairs and bedrooms in 2021.
It provides an ideal holiday base for up to four adults, with two small children and welcomes one well behaved dog for a small additional charge.
Details of accommodation:
The holiday home is accessed directly from the road, with its own allocated parking park positioned close to the property.
Driftwood has three bedrooms.
The first bedroom is light and airy, with a double bed, a dressing table and set of drawers.
The second bedroom has two single beds, along with a built-in wardrobe for storage.
The third bedroom has bespoke built-in bunk beds and is suitable for 2 young children. We recommend that it is only suitable for children under the age of 10 due to the size of the bunks.
