"'Pretty' Perfect"

We had a blissful holiday at Rooster Hall. The owners certainly know how to make life easy and comfortable for their guests. Everything worked and the house and garden are exceptionally attractive. I would not hesitate to recommend the house to others, as long as I don't find it fully booked next time I'd like to visit!

"Just wonderful."

Shaldon is a lovely Devon fishing village. If you want to stay in a lovely old thatched cottage with garden, BBQ and minutes walk from the estuary and ten mins walk to centre of village and sandy beach then Rooster Hall is for you. We loved it so much we have Re-booked for May of this year and will continue to come down. Highly recommended.

"Absolute gem of a holiday house!!"

We had the pleasure of staying at Rooster Hall during late June & formed an immediate attachment to this beautiful house - so much so, we stayed for an extra unplanned night! The house is both comfortable & welcoming with good facilities coupled with a gorgeous garden where we spent most evenings enjoying a g&t & a BBQ surrounded by fragrant roses. The village of Shaldon is within easy walking distance & offers some excellent pubs & shops (the bakery & butchers are amazing!) & it is also easy to walk across the bridge into Teignmouth. We spent our time walking the coastal paths & surrounding countryside which were simply beautiful & spent time on Ness beach which is a vast expanse of sand & shallow waters. We loved this location & will certainly be retuning visitors to Rooster Hall.

"Toasty warm cottage!"

Despite the bitterly cold weather we enjoyed a weeks stay at Rooster Hall over Easter. The cottage was lovely and warm and extremely inviting to come home to after a brisk walk down the local village. We loved the fact that good facilities such as children's park, shop, cafe's and pubs were all within walking distance from the cottage. The cottage is well kept and nicely decorated throughout with all modern appliances. Shame we didn't get the weather to enjoy the garden.

"Lovely cozy family cottage"

We hired Roster hall in January and had a lovely stay. It's a beautiful old thatched Devon long house with walls a few feet thick so once the heating as been on it stays warm and cozy despite the cold January weather and snow. There was heavy rain and gales one night during our stay, and we slept right through as you couldn't hear a thing through the walls!
The house is well positioned and in walking distance of the beaches and pubs/shops of Shaldon. The garden is well kept with a nice BBQ area that we would have made use of had it been warmer. The house is well kitted out, especially for a toddler / young children, with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Throughly recommended for a relaxing family holiday!
