The cottage is situated on the village green where there is seating, or you can lay out a picnic rug. You can relax there and watch the world go by, let your children play or enjoy a picnic. Alternatively you could always have fish and chips or a barbecue on the beach! The choice is yours!

Two miles away is the excellent Teignmouth Golf Course designed by the Augusta National architect. Shaldon’s elegant Georgian architecture, fisherman’s cottages and narrow streets exude charm. Throughout the year there are activities, festivals and the very popular Regatta in August.

The cottage is ideal for all weathers and seasons. It is close to the beaches, the green and all facilities. Perfect for fishing and crabbing. The cottage is very light and airy and has wonderful views over the river and countryside from large picture windows, which can be appreciated at any time of day.

Takeaways; Fish and Chips, The Yummy Shop - teas, coffees and smoothies, Langage Farm ice creams luxury chocolates and fudge. Restaurants; award winning ODE.


Shaldon has a very close but welcoming community. A tightly woven fabric of small backstreets with lots of small cottages, it remains one of the best kept secrets in Devon. House prices actually reflect this however.

It is quintessentially English especially when you see the locals playing bowls on the small central village green. You could even think the Spanish Armada may be appearing off the Ness at any moment! The green, as you would expect is overlooked by the local pub and each Wednesday in the season there is a local gift market, the 1785 day! People dress up in Georgian costume and there are often entertainers, including local musicians.

The green is central to the Village and leading off from this you can explore further inland (but not too far) or walk to the water edge where at low and mid tide you can walk down the estuary. The estuary stretches across to Teignmouth its larger neighbour and can be reached by Ferry from the beach! The main channel is relatively deep water which is why you will see the occasional larger industrial boat moving up of down the far channel under guidance of the Shaldon and Teignmouth Pilot.

In 1909 the ferry moved into the modern era and installed an engine. No more oars and when the tide is in flood you may imagine they were relieved when fuel replaced muscle! ! The boats have been traditionally painted black and white for 300 years and remain this way today! Records show that a ferry has been operating since the 13th century! That’s before the Pilgrim Fathers reached their new home!

If you walk to the top of Shaldon, along the shore front and then narrow road, you will find the Shaldon Wildlife centre, which is a dedicated conservation “zoo”. This “Trust” is next to the public car park and this is the easiest place to park to reach the Ness beach.

Review by The Coopers: "Lovely stay here at Oyster Cottage.Travelled with toddler and cottage ideal for her. Stayed in shaldon numberous times and always lovely and villagers so friendly. Definitely be back soon! Thanks for letting us share your beautiful cottage."

Shaldon ~

Shaldon Approach Golf, The Ness, Ness Dr Shaldon, Teignmouth, Devon TQ14 0EY.

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).


Teignmouth Golf Club, Haldon Moor, Teignmouth, Devon.

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.
