Getting around

Newton Abbot and Teignmouth train stations are just 2 miles away and it is an easy walk to the beach at Shaldon. You can hop on the ferry from Shaldon beach to Teignmouth to take in the sights.

Interaction with guest

The famous Templer Way passes the boathouse on its way from Haytor on Dartmoor to Teignmouth, a walk of some 18 miles. Best advice is to get a lift to Haytor and then walk back. From Shaldon beach a regular ferry runs all year round across the Teign Estuary to Teignmouth, a lively seaside town bursting with cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. Make sure to visit the excellent Crab Shack restaurant on the back beach for fresh crab and lobster.

Wow. Fantastic location, great views of the river and a really well fitted out cottage. Wonderful hosts. Thank you. We'll be back ....... soon.

“Superb location, great accommodation.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2017

Exactly what we were looking for, nice relaxing place by the river in a location full of pubs, restaurants and other activities. Accommodation was great, would definitely stay again.

Owner's reply: Glad you both enjoyed it and many thanks for taking the time to write a review.

“Amazing Place a true getaway!”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2017

Tidelands boathouse is a fantastic location right on the water and the house is beautiful and has everything you could need catered for. Waking up to the sound of the birds and the water was idyllic and having morning coffee on the terrace watching the sail boats is a view I will miss! The Combe Cellars pub is just a short walk away (you can see it from the house) and it's a perfect location for Shaldon and Teignmouth and a 50 min drive to Salcombe makes it a great base to visit other parts of Devon. A perfect getaway to relax and switch off! Cant wait to return!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your fantastic review! Hope you will come and visit us again. Best regards, Liz

“Beautiful Riverside Location”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2017

This is a great area of the country, plenty to do and loads of beautiful walks all around. The cottage itself was very peaceful, it was amazing to wake up and look out over the river each morning.

Owner's reply: I think it's an amazing view too and I really appreciate you took time out to write about it. Thank you.

“Tidelands Boathouse meets all expectations and more!!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

The Boathouse is situated in the most beautiful location. I was looking to escape the "Rat Race" and this was the ideal location. The tranquility allowed me to unwind and relax completely. I would highly recommend this property if you are happy with peace, quiet, wildlife and an ever changing view as the tidal river dictates. Thank you Liz......a wonderful stay and I'm sure I will be back.

“Excellent accomodation in a peaceful setting”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2016

We stayed at Tidelands for a short break, Liz was there to meet us when we arrived and showed us around the accommodation. The boathouse was excellent, very clean and with all the little extras that sometimes get missed. The setting was so peaceful and relaxing which is what we hoped for and were not disappointed, We would definitely come back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

“The perfect location for sailing”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

Within minutes of arriving at the boathouse we realised that we had made the right choice. The location was beautiful and ideally situated for ease of access and yet providing a quiet rural location. The owner could not have been more helpful and the property itself was stunning with all the amenities you could wish for. We chose this rental initially because of it's proximity to the estuary allowing us to sail our boat directly from the private gated access. We were not disappointed and we were able to sail every day. This really is an ideal location for dinghy sailing. With two good local pubs within walking distance we cannot see how this could be improved upon. In fact we were so impressed we booked another week whilst still there. Highly recommended.

“Great accommodation in fantastic location.”

Reviewed 19 Feb 2013

Just got back from 2 relaxing days in the boathouse. The position on the waters edge is stunning and the property is warm, comfortable and fitted out beautifully. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

“truly relaxing quality and comfort break”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2012

we had the most wonderful relaxing two day break , didn,t want to leave ! The views are gorgeous the property is well equipped and and the furnishings are of a high standard as is the the property itself We cannot wait for our next break during the xmas hols where we are staying for three w wonderful nights Liz was so welcoming and friendly and just left us to enjoy our time there

“It was glorious, had everything that it promised, and more.”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2012

This really is a wonderful place to stay. It has everything, - an excellent Devon location (as long as you have a car), the most fantastic estuary view that is 180 degree and changes constantly with light and colour, and every amenity for a relaxing and ultra comfortable holiday break. It is beautifully decorated throughout and has a luxury bed. It is completely kitted out for self catering but if you do not want to cook there is an extremely good pub with restaurant that is only a few minutes walk away. In addition you feel very safe because it is part of a gated property, and the owner is a real gem. I cannot fault Tidelands and would recommend it to any couple looking for some time away.
