From its desirable location in the heart of Shaldon village, guests are situated just moments away from the beach and all amenities.
Shaldon has a butcher, a baker (no candlestick maker) and shops selling local produce as well as friendly pubs and charming cafes. The village offers holiday appeal in all seasons and provides coastal view gourmet and bistro restaurants enabling guests to wine and dine out as many times as they wish during their stay, explaining why Shaldon is fast becoming a top foodie destination and putting the Teign Valley on the Gastro map.
Teignmouth also has that relaxed holiday ambience generated by its people and buildings, such as the Georgian crescents found in the town. Teignmouth is a true historic sea fishing 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).
Review by Madeline from West Sussex: "We had a wonderful holiday at Hawks Cay during the week of 15 - 21 August. The house is beautiful - it is so stylishly designed, very comfortable, superbly equipped and has a luxurious feel which made us feel as if we were really being treated! The Accommodation suited my family ranging from 9 to 79 perfectly. James and Karen who welcomed us warmly had prepared the property beautifully and it was immaculate. They even left jugs of fresh flowers for us and they looked after us Very well in the week. There was a yummy selection of treats and an amazing sponge cake for us to enjoy too! We were very sad to leave Hawks Cay and Shaldon - such a lovely place. Many Thanks to those who made our week so special."
The Shaldon ‘to do list’ include a visit to the family-friendly Shaldon Zoo, Shaldon Cliffs Pitch & Putt. It is an easily accessible location for enjoying coastal walks, classic beach days, scenic picnics or a thrilling day out on the water with a boat/kayak rental, water sports and sailing. The passenger ferry takes visitors across the estuary to Teignmouth. Guests can explore more of the South Devon coast, by hopping on the Teignmouth Circular (operated by the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company). A host of other attractions also await guests enjoyment, including botanical gardens, the lively appeal of Torquay and a treasure trove of National Trust sites.
Shaldon is very well connected, with road links, close proximity to Exeter Airport and easy access to the mainline train stations in Teignmouth and Newton Abbot.
Shaldon has a very close but welcoming community. A tightly woven fabric of small backstreet 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!
