About the property

Set over three beautiful floors built into the hillside of Dartmouth is this spectacular holiday home, Galvayne.

Offering four guests a top-quality holiday home from which to enjoy all the delights of South Devon, Galvayne features beautiful views of the River Dart and Kingswear from stunning balconies and beautiful living areas and bedrooms, perfect for two couples.

Enjoy having two sought-after parking spaces on arrival before heading down the external steps to be welcomed into the entrance on the first floor, finding a handy utility room with all the laundry facilities here and the first bedroom.

Discover a roomy super-king-size bed, TV, Sonos speaker and a glorious standing balcony behind double doors, offering amazing scenery when you wake up, along with an en-suite bathroom too.

Head down the stairs to find a cloakroom before moving through to the open-plan living space, with a larger balcony with seating behind the large sliding doors, a vibrant blue sofa before the Smart TV with more stylish seating, a dining area, and finally a sleek, modern kitchen equipped with quality appliances and fitted with a breakfast bar.

Make your way downstairs again to the lower-ground floor to come upon the second bedroom, an exquisite spot home to a super-king-size bed and an en-suite shower room with a rainfall shower, with bi-fold doors opening out to the spacious decked terrace overlooking the serene waters; watch the boats bobbing with a delicious breakfast at the outdoor furniture before you day begins.

The property is just a short walk to the centre of Dartmouth so you can easily leave the car parked up while you spend time exploring the town, with plenty of well-established restaurants and excellent pubs to dine and drink in, as well as local and independent shops to browse for the perfect souvenir.

Take a walk around town stopping at all of Dartmouth's local landmarks, including Dartmouth Harbour, Dartmouth Museum, Bayard's Cove Fort and Dartmouth Castle, the latter sitting at the mouth of the River Dart standing watch over the town.

Visit Dartmouth Castle's counterpart, Kingswear Castle by taking a passenger ferry to the other side of the river, walking along the South West Coast Path to take in the gorgeous views of Dartmouth and then further east past Brownstone Battery, extending the walk further up to the National Trust's Coleton Fishacre House and Gardens if you're feeling energetic.

Back on Dartmouth's side of the river, hop in the car and drive down to Blackpool Sands for a glorious day on this Blue Flag award-winning beach, with a host of watersports to enjoy here too.

For a memorable and luxury getaway to South Devon, choose Galvayne.

About the location


Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
