For those of you more into your tech then you'll be happy to know that the South Hams is out of the dark ages and that superfast broadband is now up and running in the cottage, making downloading and streaming an instant reality. The picturesque village of Malborough is a delightful place to stay with its pretty cottages that line the street. It has two pubs, a bistro, a church and a couple of shops all within walking distance of the cottage .Located between Salcombe and the pretty village of Hope Cove, this is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful South Devon Coastline and South Hams area. Perfect for families, it caters for babies (cot,highchair, stairgate, steraliser etc), younger children (private enclosed garden) and teenages (wifi internet, Sky 3D Smart TV, Blueray DVD with cinema surround-sound,Xbox Kinect & XBox Netflix Subscription, iPod dock). Great for adults (fine dining restaurants, romantic log fire). Enjoy a relaxing vacation of walks (South West Coast Path and Dartmoor) and sandy beaches, or have an activity holiday (sailing, powerboats, kayaking, golf, SCUBA diving, fishing, hiking etc). Year round attractions and events make winter getaways as popular as summer sun.More
