The England region

Teignmouth


History
Teignmouth is a town and civil parish in Teignbridge in the English county of Devon, situated on the north bank of the estuary mouth of the River Teign about 14 miles south of Exeter. It has a population of 14,413. In 1690, it was the last place in England to be invaded by a foreign power. The town grew from a fishing port associated with the Newfoundland cod industry to a fashionable resort of some note in Georgian times, with further expansion after the opening of the South Devon Railway in 1846. Today, its port still operates and the town remains a popular seaside holiday location.

Location
The town is located on the north bank of the mouth of the estuary of the River Teign, at the junction of the A379 coast road, and then on to the M5 12 miles away. Teignmouth is linked to Shaldon, the village on the opposite bank, by a passenger ferry at the river mouth and by a road bridge further upstream. The red sandstone headland on the Shaldon side called "The Ness" is the most recognisable symbol of the town from the seaward side. In the harbour area was the Salty, a small flat island created through dredging operations but levelled, supposedly to improve natural scouring of the main channel for shipping, in recent years to leave a large tidal sand bank frequented by seabirds and cockle-collectors. Salmon nets are still employed by locals, especially near Shaldon Bridge.
January is usually the coldest month in Britain; however, sea temperatures usually reach their minimum temperature in late February, which affects Teignmouth's climate, making February its coldest month. The first frost in Teignmouth usually occurs in late November or early December, whereas midland areas of England sometimes have frosts as early as September. On average, July is the driest month. Teignmouth has average daily sunshine totals of over 7 hours in summer and around 2 hours in winter. The climate patterns also implicate a less pronounced cooler mediterranean climate influence which is due to the decrease in precipitation centred over the summer period and surplus rainfall during the winter.

Beaches
Apart from its sea beach and Teignmouth Pier with amusement arcade and rides, the beach wraps around the spit at the head of the river Teign providing a river beach, commonly known as the Back Beach, on the estuary side which overlooks the harbour with its moorings for many pleasure craft, and has views up the estuary to Dartmoor. An 18-mile (29 km) long waymarked route known as the Templer Way has been created between Haytor on Dartmoor and Shaldon. It closely follows the route of George Templer's granite tramway, his father James's Stover Canal and finally the estuary to Teignmouth.Teignmouth Carnival is held during the last week of July with the procession on the last Thursday, and since 1999 the town has hosted a summer folk festival.

In Shaldon, Ness Cove beach has won the Seaside Award 2013. Marine Conservation society recommended beach Ness Cove lies at the foot of the magnificent Ness Headland at the mouth of the Teign Estuary. Access is via an orginal smugglers tunnel, to a secluded and picturesque sand and shingle beach.

“Ideal location for a cosy winter break...”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2014

I stayed at the house in the middle of February. The weather was cold and wild outside but you would never have known. It is very well furnished and kitted out, and most importantly for a winter break it was easy to keep warm. The house is an easy walk into the centre of Teignmouth, the sea front and the railway station. Overall I had a very nice stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

“Beautiful house in a fantastic location!”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2014

Wow, what a fantastic house in a brilliant location - perfect for exploring the beautiful Devonshire Coast. The house itself is gorgeous, full of period features and very tastefully decorated with a keen attention to detail. We stayed here in winter and the roaring log fire made it very homely. Kitted out with everything you could need, this place is very much a home from home. We stayed here with a total of 6 adults and a baby and there was more than enough space. Can't wait to come back in Summer!

“Perfect break at the seaside!”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2014

We stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights over the new year period. It was lovely, we loved the decor, the bedrooms and living area were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped with all modern amenities! There were 6 adults and a baby present during our stay and the house didn't feel at all cramped. The location was great, easy to get to from the motorway, within walking distance from Teignmouth town centre and the sea front, and excellent access to other surrounding beautiful local areas for day trips. We couldn't have wanted anything more from our holiday home. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit again soon!
