We really enjoyed our stay at Hay cottage

September 2018

Yes lovely cottage. Lovely village. Ideal size for families

August 2018

Stay was very enjoyable, super garden for evening barbecues, beaches close by and designated parking a major plus

July 2018

We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage is lovely but some equipment needs a bit of TLC. Don't know what is going wrong with rubbish collection, but needs to be sorted as there was 2 weeks rubbish in the shed in very hot weather - a bit smelly.

July 2018

We enjoyed our stay at Hay Cottage and would return if visiting south Devon again. Its location was ideal as a base to travel around the area. the garden was ideal for our dog as we could safely let her out. All in all an excellent holiday made special by the wonderful weather

July 2018

A really lovely cottage to stay in. Very clean and well presented. Malborough is a lovely relaxing village and great for walking the dogs. With the lovely weather just experienced we couldn't fault it. Will definitely visit again as a week was not long enough to see all the sights. Overbecks was a wonderful place to visit if you like tropical plants as well as a visit to the house and very reasonable entry price.

Perfect location and very well presented. Would definitely stay again.

April 2018

Loved our stay at Hay Cottage in Malborough, such a nice little village which provides what you need for a country stay. Loved the walks into Salcombe...as did the dogs! A great location to be based at to explore South Devon, although we only scraped the tip of the iceberg in terms of places to go and see in the week we were there....we will be back soon! The cottage offered all the comforts of home you need and the amount of information provided in the various folders and guides was very useful to help us decide where to go each day.

Enjoyed the wood burner shove very cosy in evenings.
