5* stars ~ View, parking, space, cleanliness, heating, comfortable beds and chairs, large dining table in a large dining room, ample hot water, fully and well equipped kitchen, excellent welcome pack/stock items, nice layout, Welcoming and helpful owners. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about the place or our stay. We were husband, wife husbands mother; while my brother stayed one night and our children for the duration, though not expected. The place was convenient, allowing us to stroll a short distance to the flat and then through Shaldon with it's pubs and usual whathaveyou, to the foot ferry and across to Teignmouth.

Teignmouth has a railway station while a drive across the river and left a short distance on the Newton Abbot road takes you to a decent supermarket ...... a long walk with a stolen supermarket trolley though. Loved it and hope to do it again as would my mother if she could ever drag us to England again. We rented in winter and we were comfortable and warm. Other than the above I did not feel that we were renting a 'Holiday Home' and for me/us this is very important.

Best family gathering that we have had in years including a pick-up in Venice and drive home to the west coast of Italy for Christmas.

Golf ~ Teignmouth:

Teignmouth Golf Club is justifiably proud of its heritage. The course was designed by the legendary Dr Alister MacKenzie and opened in 1924, some 9 years before he completed his most famous work at the Augusta National, home of the US Masters.

Teignmouth's course is situated near to the South Devon coast and, at 800 feet above sea level, it commands spectacular views of the sea and nearby moors.

The 18 hole moorland links presents a great test of golf for players of all abilities. Features include six varied and challenging par 3s and no fewer than 11 two-tier greens, a true MacKenzie trademark.

Teignmouth has that relaxed holiday ambience generated by its people and buildings, such as the Georgian crescents found in the town. Teignmouth is a true historic seafishing and industrial port and also a classical seaside resort. Both industry and fishing are now much reduced, but watching the ships and pleasure boats passing the Ness between Shaldon and Teignmouth is always enjoyable.

Teignmouth boasts a promenade, a Victorian pier, a swimming lido, plenty of shopping, a theatre, very safe main beach, great walks, a railway station and parks.

Add to this the great selection of restaurants, such as the Crab Shack, and local pubs touching the water front, beach huts sitting proud on the 'spit' and the ambience is complete. Teignmouth is easy to reach by car, just 15-20 minutes from Exeter by car or by train. You can even arrive by boat provided you can find a mooring.

For fishermen Teignmouth is a true haven, with a large beach front, and an estuary that sees a good number of bass and flatfish caught by locals every year. Float fish off the spit on a full tide with sandeel, spin in the estuary or beach cast into the surf (watch the surfers however when an easterly is blowing).
