“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 5 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

“Dog Friendly Heaven - with views AND a hot tub! Just bliss...”
Reviewed 27 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My husband, myself and our 3 Beagles have just had the most enjoyable break at Tubbs Delight. Having visited before a few years ago we remembered great views but had forgotten just how breathtaking they are! The accommodation itself was, again, immaculate and really well thought out for dog owners. The main reason we booked this accommodation was because a) taking 3 dogs is no problem and b) the garden is totally enclosed (those with Beagles will understand the importance of this!) The view was an absolute bonus and the hot tub was just the icing on the cake! We enjoyed some fantastic walks and also took the 2 minute ferry across to Salcombe - a big hit being North Sands, the year round dog friendly beach and The Winking Prawn dog friendly restaurant with the most amazing menu. All in all we could not fault this property or the area and, as if that's not enough, the price was incredible value for money. We're already planning our return.

“Perfect Christmas Break”
Reviewed 13 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had a great break away at Tubbs Delight. The bungalow is very well equipped with everything that you could need, we cooked our Christmas day lunch here very easily. The dogs had beds, bowl and even tennis balls supplied for them. The bedroom that had the cot in, along with two twin beds also had various baby items supplied by the owner.
The bungalow is very spacious with a secure garden for dogs, this houses the hot tub on the decking area which was great to use on a winters day. The lounge has an open fire with a supply of logs to get you started and then we easily found a supplier of more nearby. We even had a Christmas tree set up by the owner for us in the lounge.
The three bedrooms are all of a good size and were all fitted out comfortably.
There are pubs within walking distance, we didn't eat at any of these but both were fine and both dog friendly. The garage again within walking distance has a Co Op attached which you can get anything you need from.
We visited various places during our stay, definitely recommend the food at the Hope & Anchor at Hope Cove again dogs made welcome.
We also visited Salcombe north and south sands, both lovely beaches. Kingsbridge has all the usual coastal shops to have a wander around and Bantham beach was wonderful, massive beach which was filled with families and dogs but as its so huge all had plenty of space.
We hope to return one day and can fully understand why this bungalow gets booked up so quickly.
