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 have liked. However, we still set aside some weeks in the holiday season for our own enjoyment.
JOHN BINGHAM & KATHY McCLOSKEY purchased this cottage in 2012
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 20111/12 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.
The Cottage is quite unique and 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.
The Cottage was gorgeous, everything you would need was provided. Lovely little court yard that was a real sun trap. It was very well maintained, and spotless clean and tidy. The location was brilliant, although parking can be difficult in Shaldon, managed to park on the Green and didn't use the car for the week! I used to live in Shaldon, and remember the Cottage as the local fruit and veg shop, so was amazed at the renovation! We were very comfortable there and will be returning next year x
The minute you arrive at the cottage you feel part of the village of Shaldon. It is so easy to walk quickly to the beach or to hop across the street to the ice cream shop.
The cottage itself is clean, fresh, attractive and welcoming. It is extremely well-appointed and we've never stayed anywhere, even at home, where everything is where you expect it to be and in good working order. The little enclosed patio is also a treat and secure for little ones. We were 4 adults and 1 four year old in this small cottage, but, because the space is so well organised we were comfortable, happy, and had a brilliant time.
The property has been extremely well thought out. We had everything we could practically need but what was priceless was its position. We hardly used the car as everything literally on hand. Lovely places to eat, beach minutes away, ferry to Teignmouth on beach, We were very happy.
House was lovely bright and welcoming. A lovely seaside holiday home.
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.
The property was well set out in a brilliant location very clean & tidy. Was a nice surprise to have a welcome postcard with wine & bits enjoyable stay would use again
The cottage is conveniently situated close to the beach and village green. The rooms are bright and clean with everything listed in the advert on hand to make our stay a warm and pleasant one!
We would recommend the cottage to anyone interested in a short break to South Devon, as Shaldon is a wonderful seaside village that is close to other popular tourist locations on the south coast.
The London Inn on the village green, the Clipper Café and Coffee Rush Café's are good for food.
Excellent Hiking Opportunities and transport links in a sea side location and Dartmoor within easy reach.
Superb views up and across the River Teign and Teignmouth bay from the village with a nearby secluded beach accessed through a pedestrian 'smugglers' tunnel carved through the rock.
a 5 minute boat ride across the river Teign On the historic Ferry to the seaside town of Teignmouth with a mainline train service.
easy access for shopping and traditional beach and seaside activities.
An Ideal location for the children and families of all ages with nearby facilities to cater for all Including Shaldon Zoo.
there are a multitude of pubs, restaurants, cafes and local village shops within easy walking distance.
Teignmouth offers all the usual waterborne and sea sports expected of a historic seaside location.
Shaldon is an excellent location to venture further afield, Dartmoor is a half hours drive away with Plymouth and Cornwall within easy reach for a visit.
