The property

Rose Thatch is a welcoming three-bedroom semi-detached thatched cottage located in the traditional Devon village of Malborough.

It lies in the heart of the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) near the coast at Salcombe and Kingsbridge and Hope Cove.

While the property has a chocolate box cottage charm, with a thatched roof and exposed wooden beams throughout, it has been lovingly maintained and updated to provide a comfortable holiday home ideal for families.

It makes a fantastic base for exploring this very special part of southernmost Devon, and has wide rural views towards the National Trust rolling hills above the sea. The well-equipped farmhouse style kitchen has home cooking in mind, whether the ingredients are sourced from the village Co-op or farm shop, or from the area’s thriving local food producers.

Your meals can be enjoyed around the kitchen table, on the raised patio (overlooking shared area) or in your own private garden (approx 30m from property).

Up winding cottage stairs are three bedrooms tucked in under the thatch.

The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed, with an en-suite WC and wash basin.

Wake up to inspiring southerly views towards Bolberry Down and the coast!

The second bedroom has twin full sized single beds and the third bedroom is a nautical themed single room.

All perfect for unwinding after a fun-filled day.

In the warmer months, enjoy a barbeque and watch the sun set from the patio, and on colder nights, a log-burning stove in the beamed living room creates a cosy atmosphere.

Bring your loved ones to Rose Thatch at any time of year for an unforgettable getaway in deepest Devon.

Note: This property can be booked with the attached property, End Cottage Ref. 1093666, together sleeping up to 9 guests.

Steep staircases in property leading up to first floor, please take care when using.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
