About the neighbourhood
Teignmouth is a gem of a Victorian seaside resort. Lots of activities for young and old from crazy golf to windsurfer hire. The estuary provides a great place to catch crabs or sail. There are many walks around the area, all of which have fantastic views and scenery.
Getting around
Teignmouth train station is just a ten minute walk away or if you have bags why not catch a taxi - it’s usually between £5 and £8 Parking is available on site for up to four cars. Additional parking is available on the road outside. Easy access to Dartmoor and Shaldon
