Around Galmpton


We are truly blessed with our surroundings in South Devon with moorland, river and coastal walks along with numerous National Trust properties and gardens.

On the left we have included links to some of our personally favourite walks which we hope you will like.

We also have a good circular round Galmpton walk which is a bit too long to describe here but directions are in the cottage along with lots of leaflets to help you plan your days.


Wine & Fine Food
in South Devon

Devon is the home of fine unpretentious eating. Just try our local butcher, his meat is so local (it almost walks on to the plate) & organic... the smell of his beef will leave you salivating. In the cottage is a booklet listing some of our favourite haunts but don't blame us for any increase in your weight!
