Children will love the sandy beaches and Smugglers Tunnel. Adults and children alike will enjoy the botanical gardens and small zoo, and no visit would be complete without a traditional Devon cream tea.

Teignmouth can be found across the river, Newton Abbot and Torquay are 5 miles away, Dartmoor, with its superb rugged scenery, is only 12 miles, and a little further, Exeter is 14 miles.

Reviews

“Lovely location. Comfortable accommodation. Nice touch thoughtful goodies on arrival.Only thing against is that the bedroom curtains arent lined, so it was complete daylight at 4:30 am! Had to buy eye mask. Could also do with new pillows as they were quite flat.”

“This is a hidden gem! Going to Sheldon is like stepping back in time for all the right reasons! The village itself has everything you need the local (independent) grocery store is fantastic. There's still a good choice of restaurants and a great fish & chip takeaway, and there are three sections of beach to choose from the closest section is right by the cottage and is more for exploring then sitting down; then you have the sandy beach for sunbathing, and beyond that is a rockpool section great for crabbing. A short walk away, you'll find a smugglers tunnel, and the smallest zoo in the UK. The cottage itself is small, but well thought out. You have great views across the estuary from the first floor. Unusually in Shaldon, it has a lovely little outdoor courtyard that also has a great view, and perfect for eating outside. The sitting room is comfy; the kitchen is well stocked and the dining room is fine for 4 people. The location couldn't be any better it's central but private on a small lane that's impassable for cars, so feels safe for the kids to wander about and head down to the shore. It's only 5 mins walk to the Teignmouth Shaldon ferry, with more restaurants, a big games arcade and shops & banks you don't have in Shaldon. On that point, the cash machine has recently been removed from Shaldon, so you might want to bring some cash especially if you plan to use the ferry. In terms of getting there, Shaldon isn't much of a run after Exeter, so although it certainly feels you're in the West Country, it's not the huge journey that you'd find if you were to be travelling to, say, St Ives. Even having lived in Taunton much of my life, it's easy to forget how long it takes to reach Cornwall.We had a really magical time, and there were tears when we left needless to say we've already booked up for next year!”

“Excellent location in a beautiful abs very friendly village. The cottage was perfect and proved and excellent, and very comfortable, base for our holiday. The dogs loved being so near the estuary beach (about ten steps away from it!) and had great fun swimming daily. The locals were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.Would highly recommend both the cottage and location”
