Make a holiday cottage or holiday rental home in Shaldon, Devon your home away from home

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

The best way to explore the area is by taking a self-catering holiday rental cottagein Shaldon, as these offer you home from home comforts and the freedom to pick and chose when and where you will eat. 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.

There is plenty to do all the year around as well as a range of seasonal excitements such as the Shaldon Water Carnival, Music Festival and Regatta. Holiday cottages need to be booked early around festival times. Every Wednesday is 1785 day. A day when there is a local gift market, locals dress in Georgian costume and put on evening entertainment.

The cottage is seconds from the sea, immaculate and perfect for couples or families. Shaldon is a lovely little village that doesn't close down off-season as so many do but has restaurants and family pubs (like the London Inn) open all year round and clearly enjoyed by the locals as well. The description of the cottage is accurate and a lovely Devonshire cream tea has always geeeted us on arrival! We've had great summer holidays here as well as cosy weekends away in the winter. Would highly recommend!

The cottage was very spacious and comfortable, it was nice to have Christmas decorations up. It was also lovely and warm, in fact it sometimes got too warm! Would definitely stay here again
