The property

Resting in the South Hams region of Devon in the village of Malborough lies Merlin, a charming single-storey terraced cottage ideal for a small family or group of friends looking to explore the Devonshire Coast.

Boasting a lovely terrace and off-road parking, this property is the ideal base for a tranquil holiday in this pretty region.

Stepping into the property, the compact but well-equipped kitchen offers all the amenities you need to whip up delicious meals throughout your stay and is complete with a handy dishwasher to help with the clean up and a washing machine to refresh your sandy clothes throughout your stay.

From here, the living and dining room invites you to catch up on the day's events over dinner and a glass of wine at the dining table before sinking into one of the plush sofas to unwind with a good book or watch the Smart TV before another day of exploring your surroundings.

As the sun goes down, retire to the bedrooms to rest your eyes; the property offers a king-size with TV and DVD, and a twin room, both decorated with a light and airy blue and white theme fitting with the rest of the dwelling and plush beds you can look forward to sinking into after a long day at the beach.

Completing the interior of the cottage is a shower/wet room, fitted with a hand rail as well as a basin and WC where the group can freshen up and prepare for the day ahead.

Spend those balmy summer evenings out on the terrace, ideal for enjoying your breakfast and a morning coffee while looking out over the village and into the vast distance from this delightful position.

Give the chef of the group a break by venturing out to one of the nearby pubs and restaurants such as the Old Inn Pub and Restaurant which offers a new menu daily, crafted from local and fresh ingredients, also serving a traditional Sunday lunch.

There is a Co Op within walking distance for the essential and larger supermarkets can be found in nearby Kingsbridge.

History buffs of the group will enjoy museums being within easy reach of the cottage; Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum, is home to exhibitions and activities perfect for the younger members of the group and Overbeck's provides you with an insight to a 1900s manor home with pretty garden for you to wander while taking in the beautiful surroundings making for a fascinating day out.

To suit all ages and tastes, the nearby beaches provide a fun-filled day out, taking part in watersports or even just building sand castles.

Salcombe North Sands is a scenic walk away, and by car you can also reach Millbay and discover its stunning sandy shores.

The dramatic coastlines in the area are ideal for exploring by bike and on foot; take advantage of the Bolt Head Walk, starting in Salcombe and through part of the South West Coast Path before heading back to the dwelling for sundown.

Merlin is a fantastic break for making memories with the family.
