In the heart of Shaldon village, and just an easy stroll to the local shops, pubs and restaurants, this quaint, character, semi-detached fisherman’s cottage, with beams and bay windows, is furnished and decorated to a very good standard. The cottage also has a private courtyard garden with views of the estuary and sea, ideal for al-fresco dining. The on road parking in the village is sometimes limited and has restrictions. The village car park is 600 yards away, along the beach side, at cost. Shaldon is a picturesque seaside village nestling at the mouth of the River Teign, a river renowned for its cockles, mussels and salmon. If you enjoy the water, the river, beach and estuary will delight you, not to mention the famous Shaldon ferry which crosses the river to Teignmouth throughout the day. Children will love the sandy beaches and Smugglers Tunnel. Adults and children alike will enjoy the botanical gardens and small zoo, and no visit would be complete without a traditional Devon cream tea. Visitors to Shaldon will always remember the quaint cottages, narrow streets, village shops and a great choice of restaurants, cafés and inns. Teignmouth can be found across the river, Newton Abbot and Torquay are 5 miles away, Dartmoor, with its superb rugged scenery, is only 12 miles, and a little further, Exeter is 14 miles. From Torquay, take a trip to the theatre, or see the penguins wandering freely at Living Coasts. Exeter and Newton Abbot racecourses, several golf courses, family theme parks, Paignton Zoo, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach. Enjoy the wild beauty of Dartmoor National Park, with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes, or take advantage of the many walking opportunities along the coastal paths. Numerous National Trust properties are close by including Agatha Christie’s Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with its naval history, castle and bustling boat harbour. The South Devon Coast will be on your doorstep. Enjoy a variety of events throughout the year, including fêtes, classical and folk music festivals, the Water Carnival and Shaldon Regatta in August. Beach café 25 yards. Shops, pubs and restaurants 200 yards.

A lovely cottage with everything you could need, and a welcome basket that was a nice touch. Looks a little tired inside, the shower was tiny and the double bed was too small for my husbands comfort. The location (parking aside) was fantastic, with beautiful views from the bedrooms. The owners were very welcoming and on hand if needed. I would stay there again, the village and its people are delightful.

Lovely location. Comfortable accommodation. Nice touch thoughtful goodies on arrival. Only thing against is that the bedroom curtains aren’t lined, so it was complete daylight at 4:30 am! Had to buy eye mask. Could also do with new pillows as they were quite flat.
