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.

Things to do in Shaldon

To a certain extent Shaldon's livelihood is based on the beaches and river, so fishing trips, pleasure boats and water sports are plentiful in the area. 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.

This estuary village is not short of restaurants, cafes and pubs. The Tide Restaurant at the Ferry Boat Inn is found next to the beach and has glorious views of the Estuary. Their menu utilises the finest local fish and produce.

Shaldon Zoo at Ness features a unique collection of endangered species, Paignton is much larger and Living Coasts is Torquay’s Coastal Zoo.

Beautiful, welcoming cottage

5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay. Admiral's Suite was beautifully renovated and we felt home from home. Being a stone's throw from the rush cafe and the Ode fine dining were two big bonuses too. We'll be back for sure. Thank you x

A lovely, well equipped cottage

5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay in 12 months at the lodge. It's a lovely place with great attention to detail. It's well equipped with all the things provided that most holiday lets don't provide like towels and toilet rolls to washing up liquid and hand soap. My daughter loves staying here as 'her' room comes with 2 boxes of toys. I could stay in the shower all day. The area is really good - it feels like you're miles away from torquay because it doesnt feel "touristy" but actually the harbour (and some great fish and chip shops) are only 15 mins drive. Would recommend a cream tea at Lulus (near the harbour) and the model village is great fun. We'll defintely be back again I'm sure.
