Guestbook comments from the manager

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the quaint, beautifully decorated and pristine Cottage. We adored the place and the gorgeous outdoor lighting. It was great for our dogs also. We are familiar with Shaldon and it is in a great location.

We will definitely recommend this gem, and we hope to return soon.

Cook’s Cottage is situated close to The Shipwright's Arms, a quaint pub with its origins from the shipyard days of Ringmore where the nearest slipway still exists behind the pub along the sea wall. A popular pub with the locals, it is described as a 'peaceful haven to pop in for a drink and enjoy cheerful chatter' and as well as serving good ales and ciders. The landlady Lynda makes a delicious crab sandwich throughout the summer months which can be enjoyed in the pretty walled beer garden.

The cottage is within a minute’s walk from the village’s main street, Fore Street where you can enjoy a morning cappuccino at ‘The Coffee Rush’, buy a fresh loaf or yummy cakes from Shaldon Bakery, or relax over lunch after a spot of crabbing at the Clipper Cafe.

Another local favourite, Cafe Ode is nestled higher up on ‘The Ness’ overlooking the bay and serving fish and chips to die for and delectable homemade ice creams. You are also situated within a stone’s throw of four welcoming pubs and numerous village shops in this quaint fisherman’s village.

If fine dining is your thing, try out the award winning ‘Ode Restaurant’ (sister to Café Ode) just a few steps from the property and run by Tim Bouget, a Michel Roux trained chef. But be sure to book in advance as they seat just 24 in their cosy front room setting!

Shaldon Approach Golf:

The Ness, Ness Dr Shaldon, Teignmouth, Devon TQ14 0EY - Tel: 01626 872484

Shaldon Approach Golf is considered one of the best approach courses in the South West, with breathtaking views of Teignmouth and the Teign Estuary. Shaldon is an 18-hole course and has hole distances of 60 - 120 yards ( 7 holes over 100 yards).

Golf: Teignmouth:

Teignmouth Golf Club is justifiably proud of its heritage. The course was designed by the legendary Dr Alister MacKenzie and opened in 1924, some 9 years before he completed his most famous work at the Augusta National, home of the US Masters.

Teignmouth’s course is situated near to the South Devon coast and, at 800 feet above sea level, it commands spectacular views of the sea and nearby moors.

The 18 hole moorland links presents a great test of golf for players of all abilities. Features include six varied and challenging par 3s and no fewer than 11 two-tier greens, a true MacKenzie trademark.

Teignmouth also has that relaxed holiday ambiance generated by its people and buildings, such as the Georgian crescents found in the town. Teignmouth is a true historic seafishing and industrial port and also a classical seaside resort. Both industry and fishing are now much reduced, but watching the ships and pleasure boats passing the Ness between Shaldon and Teignmouth is always enjoyable.

Teignmouth boasts a promenade, a Victorian pier, a swimming lido, plenty of shopping, a theatre, very safe main beach, great walks, a railway station and parks.

Add to this the great selection of restaurants, such as the Crab Shack, and local pubs touching the water front, beach huts sitting proud on the 'spit' and the ambience is complete. Teignmouth is easy to reach by car, just 15-20 minutes from Exeter by car or by train. You can even arrive by boat provided you can find a mooring.

For fishermen Teignmouth is a true haven, with a large beach front, and an estuary that sees a good number of bass and flatfish caught by locals every year. Float fish off the spit on a full tide with sandeel, spin in the estuary or beach cast into the surf (watch the surfers however when an easterly is blowing).
