We had a winter stay at this chalet style bungalow and made use of the lovely log burner which made the place very cosy. 'Tranquillity' is very compact but is perfect for 2 to 3 people and is well situated on a quiet park homes site near to the quaint village of Galmpton in South Devon. The area is lovely with plenty of coastal paths and two lovelyRead more National Trust properties near by. Hide

'Tranquillity' is a simple but comfortable place to relax in. It's location is ideal for visiting Dartmouth, Brixham and the National Trust's Coleton Fishacre and Greenway without having to drive very far. A station for the steam railway is nearby. Good sized patio area for when the sun shines! There is a good shop and pub in the village.

There are several narrow streets to explore lined with colourful fishermen’s houses, with plenty of other great places nearby to discover including Paignton, Plymouth and Torquay.

For the active in your group, there are all sorts of activities to try your hand at, whether you’re a fan of swimming in the sea or prefer to enjoy long walks on dry land, with some great places to enjoy treks including the Berry Head Nature Reserve.
