Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Shaldon - COOK'S COTTAGE SHALDON

Charming Grade II Listed Cottage just moments from Beach & Local Amenities

**We offer Short Break stays in off-peak periods throughout the year, so please feel free to enquire for information about our 'Less than 7 night' tariffs.**

Lovingly restored throughout, this Grade II listed cottage offers a unique way to savour the coastal charms of Shaldon.

The property’s smart neutral façade conceals an eclectic, welcoming and informal interior. Comfortably sleeping up to 4, this two bedroom cottage delights at every turn.

Decorated throughout in an understated palette of Farrow & Ball, the cottage effortlessly combines original features such as Bakelite light switches throughout and free standing Victorian radiators - adding to the beautiful mix of nostalgia and style.

The rounded front entrance steps lead into an inviting ground floor hallway complete with old mariner’s lamp overhead. Guests can sit back and relax in the cosy living room. Fitted with original parquet flooring and benefiting from a comfortable sofa, mismatched armchairs with throws and squishy cushions, Sky digital flat screen TV with DVD player, pretty window seat, wood-stacked fireplace, handmade coffee table, magazines and cosy lighting, the room provides all the comforts of home.

The cottage is also conveniently equipped with free Wi-Fi access, an iPod player and a selection of books, DVD's and old fashioned board games.

The separate dining room is ideally suited for gatherings of up to six, where guests can entertain themselves around the rustic farmhouse table.

To the rear of the cottage, a brand new fitted kitchen offers guests the opportunity to rustle up tasty homemade meals. Featuring a ceramic sink, cooker hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, electric kettle, fridge freezer, washer dryer, toaster and a full range of crockery and cooking equipment, everything one could need is to hand. The beautiful tile work, wooden worktops and quality interior finish encourages guests to unwind with a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

A charming stable door from the kitchen leads out to the adjoining private walled, decked courtyard, full of coastal ambience and complemented by a table & chairs for 6 set underneath pretty ‘fairground’ festoon lights; a place to enjoy memorable summer evenings and ambient alfresco dining.

A handy side gated passage leads from the front of the property directly into the courtyard, perfect for dropping off sandy beach paraphernalia to the back door without the hassle of carrying it through the cottage.

From the entrance hall, a steep staircase - covered with original Victorian hemp runner and with a double hand rail - leads to the quirky tranquility of the first floor. Comprising two spacious bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom, the upstairs offers a practical layout to suit either couples holidaying together or parents with children.

To the left, the master bedroom offers an understated and elegant space in which to unwind. The king size French oak bed sits on weathered floorboards and is complemented by a luxurious, handmade Vi-Spring mattress. Guests are guaranteed a wonderful night’s sleep and well deserved lie-in, further enhanced by stylish blackout blinds throughout. This room also boasts an original fireplace, striking chest of drawers and wardrobe; and various thoughtfully sourced vintage pieces.

The second ‘couple-friendly’ bedroom also has a unique identity with a striking bespoke driftwood headboard, a plump window seat and sheepskin rug for tired feet. Perfect for children and adults alike, although slightly smaller than the master bedroom, you will feel no less pampered staying in this room. Offering the convenience of a zip & link king size bed converting to two singles if required, the calm interior further features a rustic tallboy and useful hanging space.

The smart ‘metro’ tiled bathroom features a hand crafted copper towel rail and industrial steel porthole mirror. Old Pepsi crates used as shelves add an earthy touch to the sleek fitted bath tub & shower, WC and wash basin.

This charming period cottage is situated along Ringmore Road with on-street parking outside the front door and further along the road.

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!

Steeped in history as far back as the Celts, Saxons and King James 1, the pretty village of Shaldon offers the perfect setting for a fun and lively coastal break. The village is full of local life & traditional shops, offering something for everyone, and plays host for nine days each August to the Shaldon Regatta, reputed to be the oldest in the UK.

A host of village amenities are also on the doorstep including the passenger ferry crossing to Teignmouth (said to be the oldest river crossing in England). Lovely walks lead along the Ringmore riverside, Shaldon beach in the opposite direction and the striking South West Coastal Path beyond. A 9-hole golf course, small zoo and the Homeyard’s Botanical Gardens can also be enjoyed. Children will love discovering the ancient smuggler’s tunnel, the only way to access the famous Ness beach where you can enjoy BBQ's on the beach looking out to the open sea. Further afield, a treasure trove of National Trust sites await, alongside the leisure pursuits of Dartmoor.

Shaldon is perfectly accessible for year-round stays, offering easy access to the vibrant delights of Torquay (20 minutes’ drive away), the historic market town of Totnes and the Exeter, Plymouth and London train service (which runs from Teignmouth Train Station).

Review by Val, Barry, Leanne and Matt: "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at cook's cottage. Spotlessly clean and everything provided. Would certainly recommend! Thanks very much!"

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 Golf Club, Haldon Moor, Teignmouth, Devon. TQ14 9NY - Telephone: 01626 777070.

Teignmouth:

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).
