We’ve lovingly restored this barn. It’s modern and has no signs of the previous equestrian residents (thankfully) but retains its charm - plus few luxuries!
'The Stables' is newly renovated barn in Galmpton, near Hope Cove and Salcombe - just a 30 minute walk across the fields to the beaches at Hope Cove and the South West Coast Path. Formerly part of the old stables and piggery on the farm, the barn has been lovingly restored and refurbished so there are no signs of the previous equestrian residents (thankfully!) but to retain its charm - plus few luxuries!
The barn has oak flooring, doors and windows throughout which have been both handmade and sourced locally.
On the ground floor, there is an open plan living room and kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and all the kitchen utensils you'll need. It also features a wood burner, for which logs can be ordered ready for your arrival at a small extra cost. There is also a small bathroom downstairs with a WC and hand basin.
Upstairs, there are 2 bedrooms - a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom (featuring a large walk-in shower) and a double bedroom, again with its own en-suite bathroom (featuring a bath and shower). If an extra bed is required, one of the sofas in the living room becomes a double bed, which offers room for a further 2 people. Outside of the barn, there is plenty of parking available as well as an al fresco BBQ area with seating. There is a children's play area at the back of the farmhouse which is situated next to the barn, which all guests are welcome to use as well as having the ability to have a look round the farm as well. Free WiFi is available throughout the property.
The Stables is on a working farm where husband David and son Richard take care of an award-winning pedigree flock.
We’ve over 300 acres in an area of outstanding natural beauty – some of which borders the coast – and provides a great coastal walking and breathtaking views. Walk across the fields to Hope Cove – a small sandy beach with local pubs serving food and drinks to both locals and holiday-makers alike.
1 mile to the village of Malborough with shop, Post Office & pubs
1 mile to the picturesque fishing village of Hope Cove with 2 sandy beaches & pubs
3 miles to the Kingsbridge - Salcombe Estuary
Guests are welcome to explore and use all parts of the farm, but for your own safety, please be aware of farm traffic, animals and water and ensure that children are accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times.
Interaction with guests
We are almost always available and are delighted to help with any queries or advice on the local area, but we also understand that people like their privacy.
