The boathouse is located on the shore of the Teign estuary with private launching for a boat and stunning views of the river and surrounding landscape. Contemporary 5 star interior with every modern convenience. Fantastic countryside for walking or cycling and perfect for watersports and any kind of boating, with space for boat and trailer and heated outdoor shower. Beautiful, scenic setting in summer or winter with no neighbours either side.

The peace and quiet make it a perfect spot to read, write, paint, play music or just look at the spectacular views and natural wildlife on the river. An idyllic holiday location for two people.

The contemporary open plan sitting/kitchen/dining area has two comfortable sofas, wall mounted flat screen smart internet TV, Bose ipod docking station, free wi-fi and internet, and french doors out to the patio. The master bedroom on the first floor has a juliet balcony with french doors opening directly facing the river and fantastic views from velux windows on both sides. The memory foam king size bed has a built-in central bed console with bookshelves, overhead light control, chandelier and flexible LED reading lights. There is a flat screen TV in the bedroom as well. The property is fitted throughout with low voltage down lighting.

Outdoors there is a paved patio with comfortable rattan table and chairs, Weber bbq, and relaxer chairs, offering al fresco living and dining right next to the waterfront.

If you don't want to cook, Coombe Cellars bar and restaurant is just a minute's walk away, right on the river's edge, offering delicious food and drink all day long. It has a delightful, driftwood-inspired interior and al fresco dining outside on the lush terraces.

For watersports enthusiasts you can launch a boat from your own private driveway, offering doorstep access to the estuary for water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, motorboating, sailing,

rowing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming . An outdoor hot shower is provided to wash off wetsuits.

If you prefer walking and cycling there are miles of walks in the surrounding fields and countryside, and along the shores of the estuary. 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.

Tidelands Boathouse is located in the village of Combeinteignhead, which has a local pub in the centre, the Wild Goose, and Combe Cellars bar and restaurant on the river, just along the beach from the boat house. There are a variety of coastal beaches within 5-10 minutes drive, the nearest being the lovely, sandy beach at Shaldon, a 2 minute drive away.

From Shaldon a regular ferry runs all year round across the Teign Estuary to Teignmouth, where you will find a lively seaside town bursting with cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions. Make sure to visit the excellent Crab Shack restaurant on the back beach for fresh crab and lobster.

The South coast of Devon is famous for it's mix of both highly fashionable and traditional seaside towns and villages, clean beaches and warm welcome, while Dartmoor National Park is heaven for those who search for wild rugged beauty, natural wildlife and unspoilt beauty spots set amongst ancient woodlands and-crystal clear rivers.

Every type of holiday is catered for in this area - from sailing, golfing, surfing, fishing, diving, walking, cycling or just simply relaxing.


Tidelands Boathouse is located in the village of Combeinteignhead and there are a variety of coastal beaches within 5-10 minutes drive, including the sandy beach of Shaldon, perched on the mouth of the estuary just two miles away.

From Shaldon a regular ferry runs all year round across the Teign Estuary to Teignmouth, where you will find a lively seaside town bursting with cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions.

At Christmas there are many local markets and fairs including the Totnes Christmas market which attracts over 30,000 visitors. For serious Christmas shopping you need go no further than Exeter with the fabulous Princesshay centre and the brand new John Lewis department store right in the centre.

"The perfect location for sailing"

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."

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.

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

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.

"Absolutely fabulous."

The boathouse exceeded expectations all round. Wonderful views, perfect location, luxurious, sparkling clean and comfortable accommodation and great service and attention from the owners. Only problem was leaving to go home. Ron and Doris McNeil Bishopbriggs
