House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This upside down house has unique views of the estuary and all the wading birds that live on it. Added to that is the constant activity of boats and water sports, which make it very interesting, whatever the weather. The bedrooms are situated on the ground floor, the master bedroom has french windows which open on to the garden, A window seat in the second bedroom offers lovely views of the river, the 3rd bedroom looks out on to the driveway. It is a peaceful house, warm and cosy in the winter and cool in summer. Most of all is it light, the lounge opening out on to the south facing balcony ensures it always enjoys the sunshine. This is our holiday home as well and we often eat out as late as November, since it is so sheltered. The walled garden has a patio with dining table and chairs as well as lawned area, and is completely private. All this and an easy 10minute stroll on the flat to the village, where you can find shops and water activities as well as many restaurants and pubs. One of our favourite activities is to take the foot ferry to Teignmouth and visit he Crab Shack on the waters edge for lunch.

About this location
The Devon region
Shaldon was originally a fishing village that developed into a boat building base and enjoys its own microclimate. It is unique in its location on the estuary of the river Teign, where wading birds are numerous,and live in harmony with seabirds and garden birds too. It is protected from the weather by the hills behind, and is the perfect location from which to explore other areas like Dartmoor and Dartmouth.
Shaldon is well known for its variety of activities, from the Music festival in June, to the Jazz festival in November, the Water Carnival in August and Regatta in June, and the Wednesday market where they dress in 18th centuary costume, it also boasts a Michelin star restaurant (recently featured on Country File) several pubs with live music, a small Zoo and Botanical garden, as well as he well hidden beach, approached by smugglers tunnel The local coffee shop has home made cakes, and a short ferry ride on the foot ferry takes you to Teignmouth where you can sample the best crab sandwishes ever made. Adde to this are the butchers, bakers, pharmacy and supermarket, as well as other local shops which support a thriving and friendly community.
