Marigold is such a pretty detached cottage.
The stunning communal indoor heated pool is a very welcome sight on a dull day or in fact any day!
There's plenty of seating for everyone in the cosy living-room.
The large and well-equipped kitchen makes rustling up any meal a pleasure.
Light and airy, Bedroom 1 is very cute and welcoming.
The modern shower-room can be found on the ground floor.
The delightful twin room is a great bedroom for both young and old, especially as it has a spacious en suite with bath and fitted shower.
En suite for Bedroom 3.
Marigold is accessed via your own private gated entrance.
What a lovely spot to enjoy a touch of al fresco dining.
On entering the property, you are welcomed into this fabulous open plan layout.
Bedroom 4 is home to this super-king bed. What a fabulous bed to jump into after a long day of entertainment and adventure.
The dining-area is a great place to discuss the days plans and lay some new ones for tomorrow.
Bedroom 1 is tucked away at the end of this hallway. Please mind the steps.
Snuggling up in front of the wood-burner is a must after a day of adventure.
Bedroom 4 comes fully equipped with a spacious en suite too.
The en suite for bedroom 4.
Bedroom 2  is this rather sweet bunk-bed room which is only on offer to the kiddies. Please do note that to access this room you need to go via the utility-room.
The steps leading down from the living-area into the utility-room which then leads into the bunk room.
The utility-room houses the washing machine and tumble-drier. The small fridge/freezer pictured is being replaced by a large freestanding fridge/freezer for 2023.
You have arrived, welcome!
Anyone fancy a game?
The communal games-room has a pool table, perfect for 'staying in' days.
Stancombe Manor is where all the facilities can be found, and it is literally metres from your front gate.
The grounds at Stancombe Manor are exceptionally well maintained.
Sit back and watch the kiddies wear themselves out.
For the walkers of the party, there are numerous walks and paths which lead out from the Stancombe Manor grounds.
The communal games-room for the younger members of the group is a godsend on a rainy day.
Even the adults are catered for with this full-size snooker table.
The shared pool is a real favourite with the little ones. Good luck getting them out!
Slapton Sands beach is even closer and offers so much history to marvel at.
Only a short drive away you will find the beach at Blackpool Sands. A fabulous day out for all the family.

Beautiful cottage and location, superb swimming pool, kids loved the games room and the outdoor play area. The tennis and pitch and put were a great bonus too.

This cottage has the benefit of a indoor pool, snooker room and games room which is great for kids. It is a remote location so you will need to drive everywhere. Wi-Fi and signal is poor so don’t expect to be able to work there.

Thanks for letting us know about the Wi-Fi. If this is an important part of your stay do get in touch so we can check with the owners regarding speed and bandwidth. We hope you enjoyed all the facilities offered on site and took time to explore this beautiful part of Devon. Kelsey, Customer Support

I would recommend this property to other fellow holidaymakers as a comfortable holiday home set in pleasant surroundings with the added advantage of a pool and other facilities.

Ideal cottage for family gathering at Christmas. Owners had made cottage look festive and welcoming. Everything you could possibly need had been thought of. Would definitely stay again.

Property is tired and needs updating throughout to warrant the current charge. Great location with access to communal swimming pool and outside areas.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on Marigold. We're sorry that you felt the property was in need of an update; we'll defintely pass on your comments and suggestions to the owners. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed the fabulous location and managed to make use of the swimming pool. Julie, Customer Support

A wonderful well equipped cottage, perfect for a family holiday, with excellent on site facilities in a beautiful, tranquil and well maintained setting.

Lovely cottage, very well equipped and would recommend as long as you don't mind the trip to get there as this is on miles of country lanes. Very pretty setting and the enclosed garden is great to keep the kids or dog under control. The swimming pool was a big bonus.

A very good set up with access to the swimming pool

A good base for travelling around South Devon. Cottage was very well equipped, and would book with Classic again.

BEWARE of the roads - if given the choice drive behind a tractor and trailer, never towards one. I would like to say that we will be back next year, but, although they don't know it yet, the grand-kids are off to Florida next summer.

With regards to any scoring asked for in the questionnaire - I rarely give 100%, there is always some room for improvement except perhaps in my case.

We found Marigold Cottage to be very cosy, comfortable and well equipped. It is in a very peaceful, rural location, but still within easy reach of lovely beaches, Dartmouth and Salcombe. The pool was an added bonus. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come again.

Lovely cottage, brilliant location for beaches, Hope Cove, Salcombe, Bigbury on Sea are a must visit! The Winking Prawn cafe/restaurant on North Beach at Salcome and The Lobster Pod cafe/restaurant overlooking Hope Cove with stunning views are recommended places to visit.

my rating of the cottage would have been excellent had it been cleaner

We're so sorry that you felt some areas needed a little more preparation - we'd have welcomed the chance to investigate if we'd known that you weren't totally satisfied, and would happily have asked the housekeepers to return if further attention was required. We're sorry we didn't have the chance to address any concerns for you, but it's great to see that you enjoyed the cottage in all other respects. Tanya, Customer Support
