  • "Comfortable and well-appointed accommodation with friendly and helpful hosts."

    Lovely location. Please make it clear to guests that they must follow the host's directions to drive to the property. Google maps, following link from Sykes, directs down a steep, narrow unmetalled road which is unpassable in a car.

  • "This was our 3rd cottage break, and without doubt the best."

    Penny and Sam are excellent hosts, and we have never before been greeted with so much - milk, bread, tea, coffee, fruit (amazing) eggs, and toiletries in the bathroom. The property is beautiful, and very comfortable, and the scenery from the front just staggeringly relaxing. There are NO downsides to Shipwrights. We hope to return.

  • "The property is lovely Penny and Sam's attention to detail is very good."

    As a jump off place to visit the area is excellent and is great to come back to. The access lane is narrow and needs a confident driver We really enjoyed ourselves!

  • "The property was out of the way, with very steep roads to there from Glampton."

    The initial description did not indicate this. I left the following: A black drawstring bag: small bag, and two hats. If found happy to pay the charge to get them back. Lastly, Sam who watered the flowers was very helpful: even gave my wife a bottle of wine on her birthday.

  • "Penny could not have been more helpful."

    I would say that the situation of the property is more suited for the younger set. But still its a magic spot.

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.
