A quintessential Grade II listed thatched cottage having very nicely presented character accommodation occupying a south facing position affording wide views to the front over the countryside and from the raised terrace a glimpse of the sea at Hope Cove. This very convenient location on the outskirts of the village of Galmpton adjoining farmland to the rear is three quarters of a mile from the sandy beaches at Hope Cove and close to many footpaths and country lanes for keen walkers.
The original charming semi-detached cottage of considerable character is of traditional stone construction under a thatched roof with later modern additions under flat roofs. Extensive restoration works of a high standard have been carried out preserving the character of the accommodation which included replastering a number of walls following damp-proofing.
