The property

Nestled in the small village of Galmpton is this stunning thatched cottage, The Old Cider Barn, boasting a picturesque exterior with its thatched roof and exposed stone, it makes a charming holiday home in South Devon.

Offering six guests a spacious and attractive setting, the interior incorporates contemporary style with classic cottage features, and the location of the property is perfect for exploring the coast and the idyllic harbour town of Salcombe.

Begin exploring by entering the rustic but stylish kitchen, where integrated units hold a great range of appliances for your self-catered stay including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and both a tumble dryer and washing machine.

Move into the large open-plan living and dining room to find an abundance of light coming in from the French doors behind the dining table, opening out to a Juliet balcony, creating a wonderful summer evening setting for your meal.

Fall onto the huge corner sofa and relax before the Smart TV, with two more armchairs, you are surrounded by wood paneling and exposed stone adding character to this vintage property.

Follow the industrial-style metal staircase and banister, past a wonderful feature mirror wall, and onto the spacious landing to find the two bedrooms.

Within the master bedroom is an amazing floating-effect super-king-size bed and a stunning copper bath to soak in, as well as a sofa, Smart TV and plenty of hanging space for your things.

The second bedroom is home to a double bed and up a set of stairs to a mezzanine level, you can find twin beds.

The rooms are served by the ground-floor and first-floor shower rooms, enjoying a modern wet room style.

A holiday to Devon wouldn't be complete without some days spent on the beach, with the nearest one being Mouthwell Sands at Hope Cove, just under a mile away, here you can hop onto the South West Coast Path and enjoy plenty of beautiful walks along the coast, enjoying the expansive sea views.

The nearby village of Thurlestone is home to a lovely golf course overlooking Bigbury Bay, with views out to the legendary Thurlestone Rock, this 18-hole course is sure to please any keen golfer.

About the location


Salcombe 4.6 miles; Kingsbridge 5.1 miles

The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The coastal footpath can be joined from here and leads towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.

Maximum of 4 adults and 2 children allowed at the property including the use of the twin beds
