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 Galmpton

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.

Quirky, Cosy & Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

From Australia, we organised a 'three generation' holiday in Galmpton where our friends live. Clover Cottage was well equipped and worked perfectly for us and the Christmas tree and decorations were a welcome surprise, our Granddaughter was so excited when she saw them. We would happily recommend or return to Clover Cottage.

Lovely, cosy cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five had a great time. The cottage was very comfortable and it’s village location meant we were a few minutes walk to a local shop and pub which serves food. It’s well located for Brixham, Paignton, Torquay and Dartmouth so there was plenty nearby to keep our three boys entertained. The cottage is nicely decorated and had all the essentials for our week long stay.

Wonderful cottage full of character and very cosy

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Clover Cottage in July 2017. We loved the cottage which was full of character and very well equipped. We particularly liked the fact that there were three double bedrooms and that we could take our dog. Galmpton is a lovely village and a great base to explore Torbay. We all enjoyed our stay and were sorry to leave.

Great summer holiday location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely! It was very comfortable with easy access to all main South Devon locations and very comfortable beds to relax in once the touring was over. The local pub proved very handy on a couple of nights and is about 3 minutes walk, in fact there are 2 pub`s the second is within a 10 minutes walk, both serve very good food again very handy after a busy day. - great! The area is full of things to do (could have easily stayed longer). Great time had by all. Will definitely consider this location again. Spent a lot of time sightseeing, touring and generally ambling around as there is so much to do The weather for the week was unexpectedly very good with only half a day of rain but even this did not stop us getting about. The river cruise at Dartmouth is a must.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and ideally situated for a choice of beaches, two national trust properties (one within a lovely 20 minute walk), beautiful coastal walks, the interesting towns of Totnes, Dartmouth and Torquay, steam trains and several sea or river boat trips. The village has an excellent shop/post office, a superb butcher and a lovely pub which also provides good food. The cottage has 3 double bedrooms which are of a good size but with only one bathroom and loo and the kitchen really not big enough for 6 I would say that 2 - 4 people are ideal, 6 might be a bit of a squeeze at times! The garden is small but ideal to sit out in and delightful. It was a perfect place for just my wife and I for a restful two week stay.
