Description from owner

Description

This is a beautifully renovated boat house on a private quay on the Dart , once used for Spanish prisoners after the Armada. The cottage is on the water's edge near the charming village of Galmpton, 3 miles upstream from Dartmouth. Decorated to the highest standards, this holiday cottage offers peace, tranquillity and endless changing views of the river. With only the main house and yachts on the pontoon within 100 yards, the only other neighbours are the fish in the river and the birds flying overhead. You may get the occasional hat tilt from a passing boatman. A short walk into the village will find you at the village shop, or a few yards on, the village pub, all filled with welcoming locals. The cottage is also ideally located for Agatha Christie's mansion, a National Trust run property, and the new Steam Railway station which will take you to Kingswear from where you can take the ferry to Dartmouth. A truly magnificent part of the country.The cottage has it's own secluded

A truly magnificent part of the country.The cottage has it's own secluded private terrace, perfectly situated directly over the river, with views to Dittisham on the other side, and front row seats for the magnificent sunsets. The terrace comes with a built in BBQ, table and chairs and is fully enclosed with beautifu glass ballustrading. There is a larger garden attached to the main house which you are welcome to use upon agreement, and also a large roof terrace with glass ballustrading - a wonderful place to sunbathe.

Location description from owner

The England region

In the glorious South Hams with easy access to Dartmouth (car, boat steam train or ferry), Dittisham (boat or ferry), Totnes (car, boat or ferry) and Torbay (car, boat, steam train or bus). Ideal for walking (the South West Coastal path) or boating holidays, or just lying around in the sun. Lots of good restaurants (ask us). Dartmoor National park, Plymouth and Exeter are all less than an hour's drive.

Galmpton

Coast/BeachThe nearest beach is Broadsands Beach, approximately 2 miles away or 5 mins by car. This is a large beach complete with cafe and Devon ice cream kiosk. There is also a smaller more secluded pebble beach, Elbury cove, a short walk from Broadsands car park. Many other beaches are a short drive from the property, I highly recommend Bantham towards Kingsbridge. If available, you could also hop into the boat moored at the cottage and head to Dartmouth or explore Torbay and the South Hams beaches.GolfChurston Golf Club has an 18 hole golf course and is situated in the next village, approximately 1 mile from the property, there are also two 18 hole pitch and putts in the same location. We are also a 30 minute drive to the famous Dartmouth Golf and Country Club.Special Interest HolidaysThe area is perfect for all kinds of water sports and the property has a dinghy ladder up to the river terrace. Mooring can be arranged on adjacent tidal pontoon (with bilge keels) or on dart harbour deep channel moorings with dinghy access. Owners have double kayak and rubber dinghy which may be available by arrangement.
