The West Country / Devon region
Devon has 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure
Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across this part of the Devon coastline, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Shaldon is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth, all of which are only a few miles distant.
The Shaldon area
Shaldon is situated on the mouth of the river Teign, Shaldon is an unspoilt village, with a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. It is a thriving village, opposite the busy working port of Teignmouth. Local people and holiday makers alike are able to stay on foot as Shaldon boasts a full range of local shops, newsagent, Pharmacy, Post Office, Bakers, general stores, and a local butcher who also runs in the shop a delicatessen, and a good range of local green grocery.
Shaldon boasts three pubs, each with its own identity and differing menus, one in fact has a Thai restaurant. In addition there are a couple of Hotels, and numerous charming places to stay, both in the centre and on the edge of Shaldon and Ringmore. Shaldon Bed and Breakfast properties are plentiful, catering for all tastes, and there is a good range of Shaldon self catering accommodation, located the length of Shaldon and Ringmore. Most properties are an easy walk within the village, to the beaches and local amenities, or a five to ten minute stroll along the river, on the flat walk from Ringmore upstream.
As one of the prettiest villages in Devon, remaining as an old English style village, visitors are treated to relaxing pastimes. Bowls are played on the immaculate village green, overlooked by one of the village pubs, and during the holiday season, a local gift market takes place on each Wednesday, known as 1785 day, and the local people dress in Georgian costume. In the evening, entertainment changes to Punch and Judy, sometimes an open air play, a juggler, or maybe musicians and dancers. For those that simply like to sit and watch the life on the river, many benches are to be found near the river mouth, from here you can watch the comings and goings of the beach, the many people enjoying their boats, and of course the amazing sight of the big clay boats being led in and out by the pilot as they negotiate the narrow deep water channel to enter the port of Teignmouth.
Shaldon is a small, vibrant village on the banks of the River Teign estuary. From Shaldon beach, a foot ferry will take you across to explore Teignmouth, the ferry has been in operation since the 13th century. The black and white design of the boats has been unaltered for about three hundred years, and the ferry was modernised when the oars gave way to a motor in 1909. It is the fastest way to reach Teignmouth!
At the top of the village you can find the Shaldon Wildlife centre, this is dedicated to conservation, and is in fact a small zoo, fascinating for both young and old, it is well worth a visit. The Trust is located by the large car park at the top of the village, and this is the nearest place to park to reach the Ness beach.
The energetic can play golf up above the Ness, or walk the South coast path towards Torquay, where the views across the bay are quite spectacular, looking towards Teignmouth one can see Dawlish, Exmouth, and far beyond towards Dorset. For the serious golfer, across the estuary one can find Teignmouth golf club, as you play you can see some of the most stunning scenery, both out to sea and across to Dartmoor. Shaldon also is in easy reach of both Newton Abbot race course, and Exeter race course.
If all the exercise and activities make you hungry, there are several places in Shaldon where you can enjoy a Devon cream tea, in addition there are several riverside cafes/bistro , and a superb coffee shop where Fair trade coffee is served with home made cakes.
