Former school rooms make for a charming cottage

As the name suggests the Old School House was once part of a village school in Galmpton.

Old School House has an abundance of charm and character with well-proportioned rooms. It benefits from a delightful kitchen/breakfast room, an adaptable garden room/study area and two good sized bedrooms - one with an adjoining balcony overlooking farmland.

The property enjoys open views of rolling countryside while being a short drive to the beaches of the historic fishing village of Hope Cove.

It has a well-established, low-maintenance courtyard garden with useful stone workshop plus dedicated parking.

Marchant Petit in Salcombe has been instructed to market the property and Director Harriet Cundy said: “The Old School House is lovely and is decent sized accommodation for someone who wants full-time accommodation or wants an easy-to-maintain Devon retreat that is ideally located close to Hope Cove.”

The Old School House is on the market at a guide price of £375,000 through Marchand Petit’s Salcombe office. Further details may be obtained by telephoning 01548 844473.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
