With views of the River Teign and a short walk to Shaldon Beach, these holiday properties are situated on the owner’s family run, 80-acre farm and campsite. Forge Cottage (ref 28221), Meadow View (ref 30227), which is attached to the owner’s home are first floor apartments, whilst The Cob Barn (ref UKC1852) is a detached, two-storey cottage, set at the top of the farm, close to The Old Piggery (ref UKC2619) which is a detached cottage sleeping two guests. The Cob Barn and The Old Piggery (UKC2619) share the courtyard garden and offer privacy from the other cottages.

Children will love the farm animals which include sheep, kunekune pigs, miniature Shetland ponies, free range chickens and goats. Wander the narrow streets of Shaldon, Smuggler’s Cove beach, play a round of pitch and putt or have a bite to eat in one of the many pubs. Shaldon is located on the South West Coastal Path, a 630-mile journey with beautiful views, allowing walkers to enjoy any part of the route. Both Dartmoor National Park and Exeter are only 20 minutes’ drive away, whilst the famous south Devon coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles.

Exeter and Newton Abbot racecourses, several golf courses, lots of family theme parks, Paignton Zoo, sailing and fishing can all be found within easy reach. 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 bustling boat harbour and a castle, or Salcombe with its beaches and sailing. Kent’s Cavern, Model Village and Shaldon Zoo, and of course many tea shops, all serving Devon cream teas, can be found within easy reach. You can enjoy water sports, horse riding, golf and nature reserves, all close by. Take a trip from Torquay harbour to Brixham by boat, or visit the theatre in Torquay. Beach ¾ mile. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

    To be honest, I just picked the cheapest cottage in the area of South Devon that we wanted to explore, with the aim of walking the coast path. We really didn’t expect much for the price we paid, but were very pleasantly surprised. It scored highly with us in the 3 Cs (clean, comfortable and cosy). We were well looked after on arrival and enjoyed the milk and eggs supplied by our friendly host. Only a couple of drawbacks, but tiny issues in the grand scheme of things - maybe a bigger saucepan could be provided, especially for those of us who cook risottos(!), the mattress could probably do with replacing soon, as a couple of springs could be felt, and the bedroom ceiling slopes enough for my 6’ husband to have to be wary of hitting his head when getting out of bed! That said, it was ideal for the two of us, lovely to go into a holiday cottage and not feel that you need to wash all the crockery and cutlery before using it, (as has happened to us in other cottages), beautifully quiet and detached from the other buildings on the farm. The sofa was really great to sink into after a hard day’s hike, the bathroom was spacious and warm with instant and plentiful hot water, the kitchen spotless and well equipped, and the heating system easy to control. It was a bonus to be greeted by a friendly pig, goats and ponies each morning, and the farm was ideally positioned for us to explore the lovely walks, beaches and pubs that Shaldon and it’s neighbouring village, Combeinteignhead, have to offer. Teignmouth is a walkable distance (about 45 minutes) across the road bridge and has frequent trains, so we were able to explore further without having to drive far. Shaldon has a general store for your grocery shopping, or there is a huge Morrisons a short distance across the bridge and turn left. I had saved up a great load of £2 coins for the electric meter as mentioned in the booking confirmation, put £4 in on arrival and it was still going strong at the end of the week! We even managed to sit outside for half an hour one afternoon. In the summer, the little patio must be a real sun trap - even in mid-November, it was pleasant. All in all, a lovely cottage and I am sure we will be back some day.
