About JOHN BINGHAM & KATHY McCLOSKEY

We are private owners of a unique property which we originally bought to enjoy a seaside break in a quiet location.

We love to come down to Shaldon, but we are still both working full time and run our own architectural and surveying practice where we live in Woking, Surrey. Therefore we have not used the Cottage as much as we would like. However, we still set aside some weeks in the holiday season for our own enjoyment.

JOHN BINGHAM & KATHY McCLOSKEY purchased this cottage in 2012

Why JOHN BINGHAM & KATHY McCLOSKEY chose Shaldon

Shaldon is a quaint welcoming village which seems in a time warp and offers the opportunity for a quiet and relaxing Holiday.

Shaldon is one of those old fashioned communities where the locals say good morning and life continues at Its own pace.

Historically the property was the local greengrocers, but was recently purchased and developed by a local builder and extended from a single storey shop Into a double storey cottage. The first floor and roof are an extension erected in 2011/12 and the windows, fabric and services within the property are all newly renovated and installed. We have made several alterations to maximise the accommodation and furnished the cottage for our own enjoyment.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage has level access and is quite unique. This is apparent from when you first open the front door to reveal the layout and unusual stainless steel and plate glass balustrade.

The rear patio/terrace is secluded where you can enjoy breakfast or an evening supper and glass of wine for a quiet evening in or a short walk to sample the many pubs and restaurants nearby within easy level walking distance.

Absolutely loved this cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well situated, and on the flat (well suiting us O.A.Ps) comfortable and a small but sufficient outside sitting area, we spent a lot of time out there with a cold beer.Very close to local shops and our favourite coffee stop THE CLIPPER. Already planning our return.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a holiday in this cottage which was very clean and very well presented. Everything we could need apart from our own clothes and towels was provided. Good range of dvds,games and books if tv isn't your first choice. For drying clothes there is a stand up rack and also a small washing line outside. Kitchen extremely well stocked with crockery and utensils. Bathroom is bright airy and spacious. Local shops include grocer, butcher, bakery and chip shop. Very short walk to the beach and river ferry to Teignmouth which runs every few minutes in summer £1.60 for adults and 60p for children to 15yrs. Several very pleasant places to eat and drink in Shaldon and local people friendly. Overall I would say this cottage is of high standard and a pleasure to stay in.

Fantastic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could ask for in a holiday cottage and certainly one of the nicest we've stayed in! Everything is in very close proximity - with the beach literally 2 minutes walk.

John & Kathy were very helpful and our deposit was returned promptly.

Definitely somewhere we'd like to return to in the future!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property, well appointed with lots of room and pretty much everything else one could want. Beach, pub (The London Inn - great atmosphere and even greater food in the restaurant or bar - check that there's not a music night if you prefer a quieter dining experience) and local shops all within a couple of minutes easy walking walking distance. There is on-street parking with space right outside the property but which is limited according to time of year - check the signs carefully (we didn't see a parking warden until the last day of the week that we stayed). If exploring Teignmouth, consider going over the water by pedestrian ferry just a couple of minutes walk away. Would we stay again? Definitely!
