Bolberry Farm Holiday Cottages are ideally located on the South Devon coastline and offer a choice of three beautifully presented child and dog friendly holiday homes. Sleeping two to seven guests, the cottages are perfectly placed in the sleepy hamlet of Bolberry between Hope Cove and Malborough, and within easy driving distance of both Kingsbridge and the highly desirable seaside town of Salcombe in the beautiful South Hams.
Each cottage affords a good degree of privacy sitting within its own grounds, with each having their very own private garden which is fully enclosed (ideal for dogs) with lovely views across the valley - the perfect setting to accompany a glass of wine at the end of the day!
The surrounding area has wide appeal. For walkers, there are countryside walks directly from the front door and Bolberry Down (NT) with its dramatic cliff top walks is just half a mile from the cottages. Spend your days exploring the South West Coastal Path, taking in quiet beaches and secluded coves along the way. Or for those who prefer to be on top of the water instead of just looking at it, bring your kayak or canoe and paddle from Kingsbridge to Salcombe - there are plenty of great eating establishments to reward you at the other end after you have worked up an appetite!
The pretty fishing village of Hope Cove with its adorable thatched cottages, pub for a local pint and tea rooms is just a mile away and a little further is Malborough which also has its fair share of pretty thatched cottages, a good shop for stocking up on provisions, post office and a choice of two pubs.
Totnes and Dartmouth are also within easy driving distance (connected together by a boat ride!) and offer some wonderful shops, places to enjoy a meal out and vast array of attractions. Alternatively, head to Dartmoor for an active day of outdoor pursuits or explore the National Parks country lanes and pretty villages.
With such a beautiful coastline on the doorstep, you may just prefer to spend lazy days on the beach and with the two at Hope Cove, along with South Milton Sands, Thurlestone Beach (kayak and windsurf hire available) and Bantham beach just a little further along (great for surfing), you'll have a hard job choosing where to lay your towel!
