    “We had a fantastic time.”

    Tried to buy a place on the same estate while we were there we loved it so much, sadly not enough money.

The property

Sitting at the centre of the traditional village of Malborough, in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lysander in Cumber Close is the ultimate idyll for a family holiday to this desirable area of Devon.

An all-ground-floor bungalow hosting a welcoming charm, there's no better abode for a getaway at any time of year.

Step into the white-painted property and head straight to the kitchen to flick on the kettle, sitting along a good range of other handy appliances, and soak in your surroundings; sit in the conservatory attached to the kitchen, while the sun pours through the windows, making this a wonderful spot in the mornings to enjoy your breakfast with the patio doors open letting in the fresh, countryside breeze.

Move through into the living/dining room and let the warmth of the electric fire fill the room as you sit around the dining table and discuss a plan of action for your fun-filled days ahead, or simply soak into one of the plush sofas and escape into the entertainment of the Smart TV.

At the end of the day, seek comfort in one of the two bedrooms, with a double and a twin (only suitable for children), both providing a snug spot to rest your head with a delightful white and blue theme, reminding you of the wonderful coastal position the cottage is placed in.

There is a pretty grassy play area directly outside the property.

Be sure to explore the local village of Malborough, where you will find all the essentials of a shop, two pubs, alongside fantastic walking routes and a plethora of nature waiting to be discovered.

Nearby Salcombe makes a wonderful day trip for time soaking in the sun on the golden sands of its beach.

Enjoy fresh seafood in one of the beach restaurants.

Visit nearby Hope Cove for a truly tranquil spot, or explore the bustling atmosphere of Dartmouth with its enticing history and picturesque marina.

Perfectly positioned for exploring both the coast and countryside of Devon, Lysander is a wonderful property for a family holiday at any time of year.
