Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as large family spanning a few of generations. From the moment we arrived at the cottage we were impressed. Firstly the location is fabulous ! The Cove is only 1 mile away, the fittest member of our group thoroughly enjoyed getting croissants and papers before we all up! Secondly the cottage was immaculate. The garden and house are superb, plenty big enough for everyone not to feel on top of each othe and so well equipped . The kitchen is huge, we were fortunate to eat outside every day but dining inside would have been great too.

And lastly, a word about the owner, Andrew. Rarely do you meet people as accommodating as him... thank you so much for another wonderful memorable holiday !

Andrew, the owner, could not have been more helpful. The house had a lovely feel to it and the setting was gorgeous - and very peaceful. We spent a lot of time in the garden too. Nice walk down to Hope Cove. All amenities needed were provided. Very clean. Suited us as a family down to the ground.otd of fab memories.

Beautiful large property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Old Parsonage!

Very clean and well equipped. Superb location for easy access to Hope Cove and near Salcombe, but very quiet with lovely country views. Large, well kept garden.

Thoroughly recommend!

The Old Parsonage. A little Gem in the Heart of Devon.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door everyone in the party immediatley felt comfortable and relaxed. The house is spacious, clean, charming and interesting as well as being well stocked with everything we needed to make our stay effortless. There was a much appreciated bottle of ' bubbly' and a welcome card on arrival, very nice. The kids loved the toys and games room and the guys loved the pool table.... The huge kitchen was ideal for everyone to get together and the large garden with the views, just lovely. Its a straight walk a mile down the lane to Hope Cove with its pub and cafes and a short driving distance to beautiful beaches and shops. Be mindful of the narrow lanes - but no problem if you take it slow.

We loved this place and its beautiful charm. Cant wait to go back.

Our family half-term holiday in Devon.

  • 4 of 5

The property was a very appealing,spacious house with plenty of character. It was ideal for a large family/friends gathering. It was beautifully clean and pretty well equipped. The pool table proved extremely popular! The rear garden, with a beautiful view, was a delight. It was situated in a very quiet hamlet but within easy reach of beaches(surfing at Bantham was super), the charm of Hope Cove, the beauty of Salcombe and , of course, Dartmouth. Our favourite place to eat was The Church House Inn at Churchstow (about 6 miles away) where a carvery is served several days a week. Andrew Turner provided excellent 'customer service' and was most helpful and friendly. We would thoroughly recommend a visit to The Old Parsonage.

Why Andrew Turner chose Kingsbridge

Directions to : The Old Parsonage, Galmpton,Kingsbridge,Devon TQ7 3EY

The OP is just under 2 hours from Bristol. The easiest way , if you have not been here before is : When on A38, take TOTNES turn off, when approaching Totnes you need to take Kingsbridge sign, approaching Kingsbridge take the Salcombe Road, after about 4/5 miles you need to take the road to Hope Cove. When on this road,after ac ouple of miles (down then up !) you reach a T junction, go straight over (direction Hope Cove) and after a mile you are in Galmpton ; there is a left hand ‘fork’ road , take this and after an s bend the road straightens and the OP is about 200m on the left.. If you have got as far as the church you have gone too far.

There is a key box in the porch and the code is 1004.
