Driftwood is a basic but comfortable thatched cottage in the centre of the village of Malborough, within easy reach of a wealth of sandy beaches, wonderful walks along the magnificent South Devon coastline and the popular family town of Salcombe with all its boating, watersport and shopping amenities. Located on the road that runs through the village, Driftwood epitomises quaint country cottage charm. A pretty garden laid to patio complete with barbecue provides additional space for sun-lounging, al fresco dining or enjoying a glass of wine.
