The boathouse is located on the shore of the Teign estuary with private launching for a boat and stunning views of the river and surrounding landscape. Contemporary 5 star interior with every modern convenience. Perfect for watersports and any kind of boating, with space for boat and trailer outside and heated outdoor shower. Beautiful, scenic setting in summer or winter.
The peace and quiet make it a perfect spot to read, write, paint, play music or just look at the spectacular views and natural wildlife on the river. An idyllic holiday location for two people.
The contemporary open plan sitting/kitchen/dining area has two comfortable sofas, wall mounted flat screen TV, DVD/CD player, Bose ipod docking station, free wi-fi and internet, and french doors out to the patio. The master bedroom on the first floor has a juliet balcony with french doors opening directly facing the river and fantastic views from velux windows on both sides. The memory foam king size bed has a built-in central bed console with bookshelves, overhead light control, chandelier and flexible LED reading lights. There is a flat screen TV in the bedroom as well. The property is fitted throughout with low voltage down lighting.
Outdoors there is a paved patio with table and chairs, Weber bbq, , sunloungers and relaxer chairs, offering al fresco living and dining right next to the waterfront.
If you don't want to cook, Coombe Cellars bar and restaurant is just a minute's walk away, right on the river's edge, offering delicious food and drink all day long. It has a delightful, driftwood-inspired interior and al fresco dining outside on the lush terraces.
For watersports enthusiasts you can launch a boat from your own private driveway, offering doorstep access to the estuary for water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, motorboating, sailing,
rowing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming . An outdoor hot shower is provided to wash off wetsuits.
If you prefer walking and cycling there are miles of walks in the surrounding fields and countryside, and along the shores of the estuary. The famous Templer Way passes the boathouse on its way from Haytor on Dartmoor to Teignmouth, a walk of some 18 miles. Best advice is to get a lift to Haytor and then walk back.
Tidelands Boathouse is located in the village of Combeinteignhead, which has a local pub in the centre, the Wild Goose, and Combe Cellars bar and restaurant on the river, just along the beach from the boat house. There are a variety of coastal beaches within 5-10 minutes drive, the nearest being the lovely, sandy beach at Shaldon, a 2 minute drive away.
From Shaldon a regular ferry runs all year round across the Teign Estuary to Teignmouth, where you will find a lively seaside town bursting with cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions. Make sure to visit the excellent Crab Shack restaurant on the back beach for fresh crab and lobster.
