The property

This delightful, ground-floor apartment, Spanish Boathouse, is located on the edge of the quiet, semi-rural village of Galmpton, Devon.

This charming home is the perfect choice for a couple seeking a romantic getaway close to the Devonshire coast, due to it being just a short drive south of the Dartmoor National Park, whilst boasting a well-presented, open-plan living area, as well as a great location to local amenities and the riverside.

Make yourself at home in your new lodgings by setting up shop in the kitchen, which is furnished with all the tools you and your significant other will need to prepare tasty, home-cooked meals to be enjoyed at the dining room table or on the sofa while you watch your favourite television programme on the wall-mounted Smart TV.

As day rolls into night, be sure to take a glass of your favourite wine out onto the outdoor terrace with your sweetheart to toast your holiday.

When it's time to wind down, take a long, hot bath before retiring to a plush double bedroom.

Take your loved one away for a wonderful stay at Spanish Boathouse - perfect for any season.

Note: This property can be booked along with Ref. 1129769, together sleeping 4 people.

Galmpton Riverfront Apartments

The Galmpton Riverfront Apartments consists of two, charming properties set on the outskirts of the quaint Devonshire village of Galmpton, which rests between the old fishing port of Brixham to the east, and the fabulous independent shops of Totnes to the west and the foody destination of Dartmouth to the south. A short distance south of the Dartmoor National Park, this pair of ground-floor apartments, which are located directly on the edge of the River Dart, offer open-plan living spaces, parking, tasteful, on-site facilities, as well as superb positioning to nearby attractions and amenities. A brief car journey away from Galmpton will bring you to a variety of attractions, including the shops, well renowned restaurants and buildings of Dartmouth, the fishing town of Brixham, the Paignton Zoo Environmental Park and the National Trust landmark of Greenway, Agatha Christie’s house or Coleton Fishacre, the original home of the Doyly Carte family. In Galmpton visitors can stock up on supplies at the Galleon Stores and Galmpton Post Office, practice their golf swing at Churston Golf Club, and enjoy some traditional pub fare at The Railway Inn or the Manor House or the new restaurant at Sharpham Vineyard. Or maybe even walk (or drive) to Greenway Quay and take a ferry to Dittisham to eat lunch at the Ferry Boat Inn or The Anchorstone. Further afield, the Dartmoor National Park is easily accessible by car, and home to a wealth of exciting things to do and see, such as the scenic locales of Norsworthy Bridge, Wheal Betsy and Roos Tor, whilst dining options include the Warren House Inn at Yelverton, the Rugglestone Inn or Fingle Bridge Inn to name but a few. If none of this takes your fancy there is sailing, canoeing, boating, shopping, walking the coast path and so much more. Wherever you choose to spend your time in Devon, be sure to do it from one of the excellent Galmpton Riverfront Apartments.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
