                                                        A clean, well equipped , quaint cottage.

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        I know the Teignmouth area very well as my Grandparents and Mother were "Teignmouthians". Shaldon I had only visited on a few occasions for their festivals etc. So having decided to spend a week in Shaldon I saw it from a different perspective. The town is beautifully clean, quaint, quiet and very friendly. There are enough shops to buy the essentials or you can cross the bridge (or use the ferry) to Teignmouth. We visited the local pubs - all 3 were very pleasant and friendly. The fish and chip shop which is straight across the road is very good and very popular. We enjoyed eating at the Clipper ( which has been upgraded massively since the days of the tiny café). There are plenty of walks including up around the Ness, to Labrador Bay, the botanical gardens or just along the river and beach to watch the fishermen. It is the perfect place if you want to visit Dartmoor, Plymouth, Brixham, Exeter, Trago Mills etc The property was very clean and well equipped. It is on the main street so a flat walk to all the amenities including the beach. The car park and any walks are on hills - but that is to be expected when in Devon! The only downside was the lack of parking spaces. If you were lucky enough to get one of the few places around the green then you didn't need to worry, otherwise it was the one hour bays or the Ness car park. We accepted that, because it would change Shaldon dramatically for the worse to accommodate todays cars. We shall definitely be returning to Shaldon as we had a very enjoyable holiday.

                                                        We absolutely love this beach hut. It's location on the beach (with the addition of a nice patio garden) is priceless. The beach hut is wonderfully equipped (a million miles from the average beach hut) with a good kitchen, comfy beds (and towels and linen), TV and DVD etc. A real plus is the real attention which has been paid to the smaller details - magazines, flowers, a gift of local fudge...to name just a few. I have stayed here several times now, with both friends and family. I would recommend it for a multitude of occasions. It really won't disappoint! The owners are very friendly and helpful and the booking process was very easy.

                                                        This is a superb property, a real home from home with everything taken care of. Eve and Mike have thought of all possible comforts that you might need. Ideally situated in the picturesque village of Shaldon. Would recommend this to couples and families alike. We were pleasantly surprised with the zoo at Shaldon which is well worth a visit. We will definitely be back.
