The pretty village of Galmpton lies amidst beautiful rolling South Devon countryside. Nearby is the old fishing village of Hope Cove where you will find beaches and walks across the stunning cliffs. in the other direction is the village of Malborough which has a church, 2 public houses, a petrol station/convenience store and a primary school. Less than 4 miles away is Salcombe, with its beautiful estuary and harbour, famous as a sailing centre. The whole area is of outstanding natural beauty with spectacular walks over National Trust headlands with numerous beaches and coves. Also close by is the excellent Links golf course at Thurlestone.

Townsend is one of the oldest properties in the village and dates back to the 17th Century. Originally a farmhouse, this charming property has recently been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard throughout. The interior retains many traditional features such as exposed beams and timbers, windows seats and fireplaces, together with the original circular staircase. These blend with the many recent improvements making an especially comfortable home with well lit and generously proportioned rooms with very adequate ceiling heights.

At the foot of the lovely quintessential country garden a detached barn has been converted to a 2 bedroom cottage, perfect for housing visiting guests and family, or alternatively a potential for additional income.
