Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 6
A lovely Grade II listed thatched cottage, totally refurbished to a luxurious standard, with an idyllic sunny walled garden.
Ideally situated 2 minutes walk from the beach, in the village centre. This is our family holiday cottage and we use it ourselves for 6-7 weeks a year - mostly in the summer but also during spring and autumn half terms and even on Bonfire night.
When we refurbished recently we tried to combine the original features of a 17th century thatched cottage with the modern conveniences of a new house: good plumbing, fully kitted kitchen, satellite TV/DVD etc...
My wife has been coming to Shaldon since she was a toddler and I have no doubt we will still be using it when we are grandparents.

The West Country region
From golden sands to rolling countryside, peaceful villages to bustling centres, Teignbridge offers everything you need for a great holiday. Covering the coastline from the River Exe to the River Teign, the towns of Dawlish and Teignmouth, and the villages of Bishopsteignton and Shaldon offer much to explore and enjoy.
Dawlish Warren is rated as one of the top 5 beaches in the country with two miles of golden sands backed by dunes and a nature reserve. Supported by free children’s entertainment in the summer, comprehensive beach facilities and the prestigious Blue Flag award, this is a great location for nature lovers, building sandcastles and simply relaxing.
The area is well served by the A38, providing easy access to Newton Abbot, Exeter, Dartmoor and the numerous attractions of South Devon. We also head out further afield for day trips to Dartmouth, Torquay, Paignton (great zoo!).
Shaldon is a picturesque village positioned on the banks of the River Teign on the opposite bank to Teignmouth. This peaceful location offers relaxing strolls along the river bank to the village centre where you will find traditional pubs, specialised coffee shops, local stores and organic and mainstream restaurants. We find the area safe enough to allow our 9 year old to walk around unaccompanied. There is also a small Wildlife Centre and Botanical Gardens.
Teignmouth also boasts spacious sandy beaches, along with the qualities of a traditional holiday; the Victorian pier, lido and promenade lined with attractive flower beds. Take the foot passenger ferry across the mouth of the River Teign from Shaldon.
Bishopsteignton is two miles inland with panoramic views across the river to rolling hills. Again pastel fronted houses line the narrow streets winding up to the small museum, open during the summer, while village pubs and shops retain all the charm and character you could hope for.
