In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


The Moorings simply has it all; beautifully presented rooms, fantastic location overlooking the River Teign and plenty to do nearby.

Situated just ½-mile from the sandy beach, this detached holiday property enjoys a wonderful panoramic outlook over the River Teign and the countryside beyond. Decorated and furnished to a very good standard, it offers an ideal base with views over the river Teign from the balcony. There are French doors leading to the garden. Situated within walking distance of Shaldon centre, it is well placed for a range of shopping facilities in addition to inns and restaurants. Leisure activities here are very much water based with sailing, angling, swimming and diving available either in the River Teign or from the coves and beaches nearby. The Ness headland watches proudly over the mouth of the estuary, guarding the waters between Shaldon and the busy Victorian town of Teignmouth. The river beach and estuary will delight visitors, not to mention the famous Shaldon ferry which plies the river to Teignmouth throughout the day. The children will love the sandy beaches reached through Smugglers Tunnel. Both Dartmoor National Park and Exeter are only 20 minutes’ drive away while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, Paignton zoo, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach. Numerous NT properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with a bustling boat harbour and a castle, or Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and watersports is also easily accessible. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    It was the perfect place to celebrate my 70th birthday with my children and grandchildren. The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed and plenty of space for 15 of us. The view from the upstairs balcony was spectacular and ever changing. The furniture and the beds are all comfortable and the kitchen was amazingly well equipped. Shaldon was a truly delightful place. The village fish and chip shop is worth a visit as was the London Inn and The Clipper cafe. Thank you 'The Moorings' for making my 70th so memorable. We're all still talking about our stay !

    Lounge seating looked comfortable, but really wasnt. Also mattresses were not brilliant, especially en suite one, which was obviously used most. If full house, table in kitchen/diner definitely not big enough, had to bring in table from games room. Had to call in owner as oven not working and no instructions available. No quiet area asevery room open-plan, even lounge.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Sorry that our beautiful property did not meet your expectations, the vast majority of our guests are more than happy with the property. The Lounge seating is a matter of personal preference and may not suit everyone. Our Mattresses once again are of personal preference and some of those are memory foam which may not suit everyone. The table in the kitchen comfortably seats 10 people there is a second table in the 2nd lounge/games room which comfortably seats a further 4 people which will accommodate 14 guests in total. If you require both tables in the kitchen there is ample space to do this. The oven was in perfect working order when the property was checked prior to your arrival. When you called to say it was not working we responded within 5 minutes and arrived at the property. The timer/ alarm on the cooker had been activated and simply needed resetting which was done in a matter of minutes. Regarding the instructions I didn’t need to look for these as they are at the property. Regarding your comment, (no quiet areas), There are 8 bedrooms which all have doors on them. There is an open plan kitchen/ dining room & down stairs lounge/games room as shown in the pictures . The stairs rise from the hallway from the kitchen to the upstairs second lounge with beautiful views over the rear gardens, woodland, the river teign and the fields beyond. We find this room a lovely tranquil setting to sit and enjoy the views or to relax . Once again we are truly sorry it didn’t meet your needs and at your request we put Christmas decorations up early, we allowed you to check in early so this would give you more time at no charge, and we allowed you to check out 2 hours late at no charge. At no point did you raise any concerns with us other than the cooker.

    We were a group of 12 adults, 2 children and 1 dog spanning 4 generations to celebrate 2 very special people in their 80th year. The house was fantastic with lovely views. Everything we could have needed was provided. We had a fabulous weekend and hope to be able to return.

    We had a great weekend here as a group of friends and our assorted off-spring. The property is lovely and we would love to return in future.

    We had a great time, and thought it was good value for money! Not far to the local pubs and beaches, and only a 5 minute drive from Morrisons if you run out of supplies! It made a thoroughly enjoyable weekend that much better! :)

    Excellent holiday with an extended family. Very well equipped, fantastic location. We were asked to check out by 10am on the Sunday, which seemed incredibly early, but the owner was very helpful in granting us an extension which was much appreciated.

    This is a stunning property with amazing views over the estuary. Bright, clean and spacious - easily held 14 of us with many rooms / spaces to escape for a bit of peace _ lovely out door spaces too. There is so much to do in this area - great walks, beautiful beaches and fabulous places to eat. The owner owns a lovely sandwich / pasty / ice cream shop in Sheldon and was always on hand to chat to or answer any queries. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here - stuff for kids of all ages to do (outdoor lido, safe beaches, rock pools and amusement arcades and crazy golf) and every where is both kid and dog friendly v- have never stayed anywhere so friendly and welcoming !!

    Large house that was comfortable and well equipped for the size of our party, but a few things where annoying number one being absolutely no internet access. The owners were contacted on day one and we were told it was an intermittent service however this was not the case, the router was rebooted on a regular basis and not once did we get broadband which is an absolute requirement in present times. The High Chair supplied was inadequate and gave us a problem feeding a one year old. On a minor point instructions for working the Range and an additional house key (only one supplied for 14 people!) would have been beneficial. Excluding the above annoyances we all did have a wonderful holiday and the house was good re space, layout and equipment supplied.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately the problem with the internet was a problem due to BT and therefore outside of our control. The highchair was purchased from Mothercare and we would have been more than happy to replace it had we known. The comfort of our guests is very important to us and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay.
