Walkers Rest is a delghtful quiet haven in a secluded setting yet still within reach of Salcome and Kingsbridge. Decorations ans furnishings are excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definately return.
Malborough is a great location for exploring the coast from Salcombe to Hope Cove on foot. There are two decent pubs in the village (the Royal Oak did some particularly good food) and a Co-op convenience store which is open long hours so we didn't need to use the car very much. This is a modern house in a quiet location close to the centre of the village. It is clean and uncluttered with plenty of room and well equipped. We have rented a variety of houses over the years and this is certainly one of the best. However, there is no internet available at the property nor can you get a mobile signal in or near the house. We thought that a blessing - our teenage children weren't so impressed!
