The Palms is a well-equipped, south-facing holiday home in Galmpton, ideal for a couple or solo traveller. Newly refurbished and re-configured from a two-bedroom bungalow, it has all the modern comforts you need for a wonderful holiday in Devon.
The bungalow occupies a middle position in the park and it boasts lovely views of the River Dart from its south-facing patio. Kitted out with a table and chairs, the patio is a lovely setting for drinks and dining together while admiring the view.
Inside, a modern kitchen is open to the lounge and dining area, giving it a spacious feel. Both the lounge and bedroom have TVs and wifi, for 24 hour entertainment if desired.
Within easy reach of walking trails, village shops, a pub and the beach, it’s a convenient and beautiful base for holiday.
Galmpton Park is nestled between Torbay and the Dart Valley in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a small and well-kept development of 46 privately owned holiday bungalows. If you love peaceful, rural tranquility with amenities and interesting places to visit nearby, it is heavenly.
When you stay here, you can leave your car behind as there is so much available within easy reach. A convenient 10 minutes walk away is Galmpton village where you will find the local pub, village store and post office, family butcher and hairdresser.
It is well situated for beaches too with three close by – Broadsands beach (1.4 miles) as well as dog-friendly Goodrington Sands (2.5 miles) and Elberry Cove (1 mile).
Agatha Christie’s former home, the captivating Greenway House & Gardens (now National Trust), is just a mile down the road and a must-see during your stay.
The park also offers superb views of the River Dart, across to Dartmoor in the distance. You can take a walk down to the Creek in 10 minutes, passing a gorgeous view of the Dart on the way.
The area has plenty of appeal for dog owners or keen walkers. There are fantastic walks from the doorstep but don’t expect a level walk, this is Devon! Our favourite takes you down Mill Lane to the shore of the river with stunning views along the way. Just a stroll away is a dog-friendly village pub, The Manor Inn.
