Looking for a rural bijou bolthole?
The newly refurbished property still retains many of its original features, for a twee ambience to reflect the charm of its farmyard setting, which is steeped in history, being home to a farm on the site since the Middle Ages and forming one of the 7 original village buildings of Galmpton.
Inside guests can find a sunny and inviting holiday haven to call their own, with a cosy open plan living room encased by a pretty beamed ceiling, to offer guests a restful and intimate setting in which to relax and enjoy.
The snug sitting area and flat screen TV offers home-from-home comfort for when the weather turns and the fitted kitchenette to the side provides the freedom to enjoy simple home-cooked meals during your stay.
Directly outside the sunny private terrace paints a picturesque setting for enjoying relaxed alfresco lunches and romantic evening meals, surrounded by the peaceful and serene surroundings of the historical farm.
The charming holiday home further offers a delightfully furnished master bedroom with double bed and a modern fitted bathroom.
For guests looking to stay close to family and friends during their stay, it is possible to rent 'Galmpton Stable' alongside the equally charming 'Agatha's Galmpton Cottage', which sleeps up to 4 and forms an annexe to the principal privately owner farmhouse, which is also situated here in the period setting of the internal courtyard.
**Please Note: the NEW Holiday Lettings nightly pricing & tariff calculator displayed to the right, calculates nightly rates by taking the weekly tariff rate and dividing it by 7. This nightly rate is misrepresented, as it does not take into account Short Break Percentages explained in the Tariff Notes section below. Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

Brixham is classic working fishing harbour town with pastel coloured fishermen's cottages and a long breakwater and inner harbour protect Brixham from rough seas. There is also a marina with restaurants and bars, a choice of local beaches and a saltwater outdoor swimming at Shoalstone. We have our own website that gives a lot more information about Brixham.
Dartmouth can easily be reached by train from Paignton to Kingswear, which takes about 30 minutes and then a 5 minute ferry ride across the River Dart. The railway is the famous Dart Valley Steam Railway and this is associated with the ferries so all works seamlessly. You can drive to Dartmouth by either taking the higher or lower car ferry at Kingswear or driving to Totnes and around the upper navigable reaches of the Dart then to Dartmouth. Allow 35-40 minutes.
Three beaches and Broadsands, Elberry cove and Churston:
Between Paignton and Brixham on the coast side of the road are a range of beaches and places to enjoy. They are not as well known or a popular daily but are great to visit along the coast path and to enjoy quieter beaches and lovely scenery. Three beaches is the name give to a series of coves (the main one being Saltern Cove) between Goodrington South Sands (South Sands nearly always has beach space even at high tide whereas North Sands is completely tidal)and Broadsands. The coves are not suitable for bathing and are very rocky, but good for shells and if you are a geologist, ideal for examining the Devonian period. The Paignton Steam railway runs along the top of these cliffs and onto the viaduct standing high above the valley at Broadsands a mile further on. Three beaches can be reached by car through Waterside a small town with a range of shops on the main road.
Broadsands (very sandy) can also be reached by car by turning left at the Library at Churston and dropping down under the viaduct where there is a very large car park adjacent to the beach. The beach is very wide ("Broad Sands") and shallow sloping with a couple of cafes. It is a popular location with locals many of whom have their own beach huts. Separating Broadsands from Elberry Cove (all pebbles) is a lovely large grass promontory with a great pitch and putt green. Elberry is much smaller and is used by ski boats and is quite steeply sloping. From here you can walk a few miles to Brixham passing the Churston Golf course on the right and a number of old quarries to the left, down through the woods. A path leads off his coast path to Churston, a local village between the coast and the main road to Brixham. There is a great pub here with
The English Riviera - The perfect choice:
The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!
Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.
It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.
Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture afficionados to marine enthusiasts.
Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.
Stunning panoramic views along 22 miles of coastline
There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure
Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.
A choice of 19 beaches and coves:
Along the 22 miles of English Riviera coastline are 19 beaches and coves. Some, close to Torquay town centre are wide, open stretches of sand with beach facilities such as cafes, beach huts and watersports. Many are smaller and more secluded.
Several of our beaches hold coveted awards for cleanliness and water quality. Torbay is a naturally sheltered bay, creating a safe haven for ships of all shapes and sizes in stormy weather. Occasional easterly winds create our own winter storms however and this is when beachcombers make their best finds. Keep an eye on the Torquay weather page.
Stretching from the South side of Brixham to Maidencombe, the coast path around the Bay offers excellent and varied walking, with circular walks or point-to-point, with spectacular sea views and an exotic range of flora and fauna.
