The West Country region
South Devon has a coastline of spectacular rugged cliffs and headlands, interspersed with lower-lying areas, sandy beaches and the five distinctive river estuaries of the Dart, Avon, Yealm, Erme and Salcombe.
The coastal scenery also includes reed beds, sand dunes, shingle ridges, mud flats, salt marshes, and the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve. This variety provides habitat for a diverse range of wildlife. The South West Coast Path National Trail running along the whole stretch of heritage coast, provides access to spectacular scenery, long views across bays and the English Channel, interesting beaches, and a scattering of coastal villages & historic towns such as Salcombe & Dartmouth.
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.
Teignmouth also 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).
Dartmoor is known for its plethora of Bronze Age remains; stone circles, stone rows and burial chambers and its clapper bridges, it is also well known for mists and boggy areas, though stories of the latter are often much exaggerated.
Two Bridges - is a central location of Dartmoor National Park and is mostly the meeting point of walkers and bikers. This is a bridge that was of much historical importance for it was the only routine road running across Dartmoor. The bridge had a small settlement around it and was famous for its potato market.
You can also find a small quarry that is proof enough of little industrial activity around it. There is also a famous hotel close to the bridge that dates back to year 1794. This hotel has now grown up to become The Two Bridges hotel. The two bridge area is the focal point of many events and is very rich in terms of antiquities available, there are lots of antiques relating to the Bronze Age period.
The Garden House - is a very romantic place. If you are with your partner then I suggest you must visit the Garden House for sure. The remains of the building around it is from the medieval period. To put it in words of Alan Titchmarsh, "You got to be mad to miss it" and I am sure you will vouch by this statement once you have seen the place yourself.
It is a huge area, approximately ten acres and all of it landscaped into a beautiful garden. Amidst this charming garden you have a tea room where you can sit back and relax. They also sell plants, so it would be a romantic idea to buy a gift for your partner? Your partner will be totally charmed and will fall in love with you all over again.
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.
