About Stephen Jones

We bought Clover Cottage in August 2011 and turned it into a 3 double bedroom family house.We use the cottage whenever we can during winter & summer months with our family & friends. The cottage is a fantastic base for us to visit all of the South Devon Coast & inland to Dartmoor. We have been visiting the Devon Coastline for 40 years on holidays. 15 years ago we found Galmpton & Dartmouth & the River Dart. Dartmouth is a very busy town especially in the summer months so when we found Galmpton which is a quiet village we decided to buy Clover Cottage.

Stephen Jones purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Stephen Jones chose Torbay

We fell in love with Clover Cottage because of its location in the quiet village of Galmpton. The cottage is well placed for people who rent for walking to nearby towns and villages or driving and sightseeing. You can park your car and not use it again till you go home. There are plenty of walks depending how far you want to go. We always want to explore the River Dart and the cottage is 10min walk to the trail which can be followed for miles or take your car on the winding country roads.

What makes this cottage unique

Clover Cottage in Galmpton is very easy to find. Just off the A379 Torquay to Brixham main road. It has a parking place at the side and another in front of the house. Shops include a butchers, village stores, post office & hairdressers.

The Manor Inn / pub / restaurant / hotel is within 5 mins walk.

Super holiday home in an ideal spot.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great winter break at the Cottage for half term. The owners have made it very cosy with a log fire, beautiful kitchen area comfy furnishings. Great pub along the way and a few minutes walk to the creek and the Ferry Boat Inn at Dittisham. Easy drive into Torbay or Dartmouth. We shall go again.

Quiet and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

First impressions were excellent, really clean and welcoming place. A brilliant base for a holiday on the 'English riviera'. We had a great time, the local butchers are well worth a visit (take the dog if you've got one!) and the local pub serves great food. It's a nice walk to the Dartmouth ferry and the steam train from Dartmouth drops you close enough to walk back.

All in all a lovely place to stay.

Well equipped,clean & very homely

  • 5 of 5

A great cottage, in a fabulous area. Very impressed with the standards of cleanliness & how well equipped the property was.

Highly recommend eating at The Manor Inn, but be sure to book if you are wishing to go in the evening.

A trip to Cockington is a must especially if you have a dog, the walk from there down to Torquay seafront is amazing.

I will definitely consider booking to stay here again next year.

10/10 to the owners for creating such a comfortable place to stay
