Galmpton is a short distance from Greenway, the National Trust home of Agatha Christie and is a great location from which to explore South Devon and the in particular the South Hams.
With Paignton only a couple of miles away, with its safe beaches and many attractions it is a true family holiday location. Preston, Paignton, Goodrington, Three Beaches, Broadsands and Elberry are just some of the great beach locations with something for everyone. Then there is Paignton Zoo, Kents Cavern and all the other local attractions.
In the other direction lies Brixham with its still active fishing fleet and its very own identity. Between the Galmpton and Brixham is the turnoff to Kingswear and the ferry to Dartmouth. From here you can explore the South Hams, starting at Strete, then the Beesands, Slapton, Torcross and around to Kinsbridge, Prawle and Salcombe. Galmpton also sits just off the ring road to Torquay from which you can branch off to Totnes, without hitting town centre traffic.
Finding somewhere to stay is never easy and with Agatha Christie being so famous the area brings many visitors to this particular village as it is a few miles from Greenway and over the river to Dittisham by ferry.
Take the ferry from Greenway and visit Dittisham
