Safety issues for families with small children.

  • 3 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at Driftwood Cottage and appreciated the welcome pack.

As with all parents our children's safety is of paramount concern and we were particularly alarmed that the rear gate, which opens directly onto the main road to Torquay, had no means of locking!

Non of the electrical products had been safety tested, something we have never experienced in any hotel or rental property before.

The main bedroom downstairs has a glass mirror door opening onto a radiator, inevitably one of our children cracked the glass and could have been seriously injured.

Non of these issues were picked up by the owner or agents, you have been warned!

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood Cottage was the perfect venue for our family gathering. Two families plus Grandparents, eight of us in total. The grandparents had a bolt hole on the ground floor complete with kitchen, double bed with ensuite facilities yet only up the stairs to join in the fun. We had such a good time in the evenings playing games round the large dining table. I would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a long weekend at Driftwood Cottage. The house is so clean, modern and very well furnished and has a wonderfully homely feel. The beach, shops and restaurants/cafes are a very short walk away making this an ideal base.

Great location and really lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Driftwood for a break with my Mum and my sister. We knew the area well and wanted somewhere within walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurant. Driftwood was perfect for us - we all had double bedrooms, plenty of additional living space too and it was so lovely and light and airy. There was a lovely outdoor deck area too which was so nice to sit out on and enjoy the sunshine. The decor was nicely done and it is obviously very well maintained. We would thoroughly recommend Driftwood for a stay in Shaldon - it's a great base for exploring such a lovely area.

Cosy house with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Driftwood was just the tonic we needed. The house has everything that you could need including fishing nets for the children to use. We spent a lovely afternoon on Ness beach, ate fish and chips, went on the little ferry boat to Teignmouth and enjoyed cosy evenings putting the world to rights over a glass or two of wine. Our party comprised 4 adults and 3 children and everyone was happy! Am looking forward to coming back to Driftwood next year.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Shaldon ever since we were children and it is a very special place to us - and now we have found our favourite holiday house too! We spent our afternoons playing battleships and monopoly as a family, the games and books provided making us feel very much at home. With pubs and cafes available so close by, we had a combination of lovely home-cooked lunches and meals out in the evening. The spacious living room meant we could all relax and watch a film together, and the personalised beach theme of the pictures and signs hanging up received many compliments from us! We had a lovely stay and can't wait to return next year.

For those looking for some beach fun, Shaldon Beach offers the perfect excuse for swimming, canoeing, sailing and rowing. For those looking to enjoy a more secluded beach spot, Ness Cove provides a peaceful sanctuary in which to enjoy in the summertime sun, with rock-pools to explore and alfresco BBQ's to enjoy (by booking through Teignbridge District Council).

Wine buffs can savour a day at the Old Walls Vineyard which is located just across the water, and for those looking for a relaxed way to spend the day can take the oldest ferry in the UK from Shaldon to Teignmouth, for a leisurely trip on the water and a day of unhurried sightseeing.

The River Teign Rowing Club and Teignmouth Golf Club, Go-Karting Park, Water Park and the Living Coasts attraction can also be found in the surrounding area and the famous scenic Steam Railway tour, River Boat cruises and Kent’s Cavern are also nearby, to provide a nostalgic and memorable seaside escape along Devon’s picture-perfect coast!

Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Crazy Golf/Pitch & Putt, Exceptional Views, Gallery, Grocery Shopping Nearby, Museums, National Trust Properties, Playground, Public Transportation, Restaurants & Bars, Rowing Boats, Train Station, Waterfalls, Winery Tours, Wildlife Centre and Zoo.
