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.

Fabulous stay in a character cottage
We had a wonderful time in Steve and Jane’s home. They could not have been more welcoming, assisting with great ideas for days out and making us feel ‘at home’.
The weather was kind to us after the first few days and we really enjoyed sitting out on their patio which gets the sun for most of the day. The home is well equipped and provided everything we needed for our holiday. We enjoyed the village and its pubs as well as walking to Churston Court. Greenway is also in easy walking distance.
We would definitely rent again.
Thank you we are glad you had a great stay. We are here at the moment and the weather is fantastic. Thanks again.

Quirky, Cosy & Comfortable.
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.
Thanks for the review. Pleased you enjoyed your stay & have a safe journey home.

Lovely, cosy cottage in a great location
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
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.
Thanks for the review Jackie, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage.
