Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated at the mouth of the River Teign. However, the original river settlement was upstream in Ringmore. It is one of the prettiest villages in England having kept its old English style. Shaldon is fourteen miles from the City of Exeter. Neighbouring towns include Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Dawlish, Paignton and Torquay and surrounding villages include Abbotskerswell, Bishopsteignton, Bovey Tracey, Teigngrace and Chudleigh.

Places to holiday in Shaldon

If you like to cook your own food, Riverford is an organic company who deliver vegetable boxes to cottages in the area.

Devon cottages also have the convenience of the village shops with a general store, post office, pharmacy, local butcher, newsagent, green grocers and delicatessen. Some parts of Shaldon are conservation areas with listed buildings that date back to the seventeenth century and Ringmore has fifteenth century origins. Shaldon is connected to neighbouring Teignmouth by a ferry, as well as the longest Bridge in England, which has thirty-five arches across the Teign.

Before the local church of St Nicolas was built a hundred and eighty years ago, there was a wooden Saxon church. Shaldon is pretty with narrow streets and late Georgian and Regency cottages. Holidaymakers flock to Shaldon for its beaches, bird spotting, a game of bowls on the village green and a generally laid-back way of life famous from Devon cottages.

The cottage was within easy commuting distance from Ashburton and I passed Buckfast Abbey every day on my commute- how cool is that? The cottage was perfect for me. It was warm, cosy, well equipped and a peaceful haven after a hectic day's cooking. The village is picturesque and very well placed on the edge of the moors. I went walking in the evenings and at weekends and visited the welcoming pub on a few occasions. The owners Dave and Maggie were the perfect hosts. They were welcoming and always there if I needed them but respectful of my privacy. They even ate my food! Dylan the dog deserves special mention for doggy friendliness. Ashburton is a wonderful foodie town and I enjoyed visiting Totnes and Buckfastleigh when not cooking. I can highly recommend the cottage and I am tempted to come back- this time for a proper holiday!

Exactly as described in the information provided . I would recommend the property to friends and relatives [although we would rather keep it to ourselves ]. We had three restful days and would like to come again .Thank You.

The convenience of the village shop, which was literally 20 seconds walk from the front door was great, as was the nearby pub. I wish we'd had more time to explore the area, but really liked what we did see of it.
