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

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.

It was bright, clean, spacious and comfortable, and everything was clearly explained, such as how the heating worked. The garden was perfect for the dogs, and the conservatory at the back made it easy to make sure that, despite dreadful rain, we were able to get them thoroughly dried off before they came into the house proper. The situation was not what you might expect from a holiday cottage, on an estate, but then it was ideal for us, literally round the corner from one family we went to visit, and from the front you could look out over the river. We'd stay there again for a similar visit, definitely.
