Holiday Rental House
A lovely Grade II listed thatched cottage, totally refurbished to a luxurious standard, with an idyllic sunny walled garden. Ideally situated 2 minutes walk from the beach, in the village centre. This is our family holiday cottage and we use it ourselves for 6-7 weeks a year - mostly in the summer but also during spring and autumn half terms and even on Bonfire night. When we refurbished recently we tried to combine the original features of a 17th century thatched cottage with the modern conveniences of a new house: good plumbing, fully kitted kitchen, TV/DVD etc... My wife has been coming to Shaldon since she was a toddler and I have no doubt we will still be using it when we are grandparents....A lovely Grade II listed thatched cottage, totally refurbished to a luxurious standard, with an idyllic sunny walled garden.

About the neighbourhood
Shaldon is a picturesque village positioned on the banks of the River Teign on the opposite bank to Teignmouth. This peaceful location offers relaxing strolls along the river bank to the village centre where you will find traditional pubs, specialised coffee shops, local stores and organic and mainstream restaurants. We find the area safe enough to allow our 9 year old to walk around unaccompanied. There is also a small Wildlife Centre and Botanical Gardens. Teignmouth also boasts spacious sandy beaches, along with the qualities of a traditional holiday; the Victorian pier, lido and promenade lined with attractive flower beds. Take the foot passenger ferry across the mouth of the River Teign from Shaldon. Bishopsteignton is two miles inland with panoramic views across the river to ro...
How to get there
From the end of the M5 take A38, A380, A381. As you come in to Teignmouth turn right over the estuary bridge towards Shaldon. On the other side of the bridge, just as just as the road bends right, turn left in to Shaldon village (Fore Street). 100m on the right is Dagmaar Street and our cottage is the thatched one, behind the walled garden as the road splits after 75m. The entrance is on the right hand side, as is the parking space.
