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 directions to the cottage were spot on and the wine left for our arrival was a nice touch & much needed after a foggy drive down ! Cottage very clean and was just about big enough for the 4 of us for 3 nights. would be nice to have a bit more comfy seating though. We loved Shaldon and ate out most the time. Nice that the boat to Teignmouth runs all year. Would be nice to visit in the Summer months to do more walking and beach exploring. Also, could use trains and buses a bit more rather than struggling to park in the tight roads every time we went out. All in all cottage was good value in a lovely location. Very swift communication throughout from booking onwards. Thank you for letting us stay.
