Set for carefree coastal stays, the friendly interior is decorated in a cosy beachy-style that perfectly suits its setting. A romantic wood burning stove sets the scene for ambient weekends here in good company; four-legged friends or not! The inviting living space is also equipped with free Wi-Fi and a flat screen HD TV with a DVD player and classic movie selection. A games-books library is also on hand for your enjoyment.

The coastal-inspired space flows freely between living and dining; with stripped floor boards and lantern lights continuing on the effortless feel. Here a relaxed dining area for 4 leads through to a country-style open kitchen. Newly-fitted and bathed in plenty of natural light, the kitchen lets you prepare unhurried breakfasts and meals together in comfort and style.

All the necessary utensils, crockery and a cooker hob, oven, microwave, toaster, cafetiere, fridge and dishwasher provide everything you need to get started.

Upstairs, guests can spread out and enjoy a good night’s rest, within the tranquil appeal of two bedrooms. A spacious King size bed to the front bedroom invites a couple to relax with a film and enjoy a guilt-free holiday slumber. A 2nd bedroom with Double bed also offers a cosy nest in which to lay your head down, after a fun day out and about on the Devonshire coast.

The upstairs is also accompanied by a bathroom fitted with a bath tub, overhead electric shower with curtain, a wash basin and a WC. A washing machine is also provided for guests’ use in the cottage.

Next to the cottage, the ‘quintessential seaside pub’ known as the Shipwright Arms welcomes you in with a selection of real ales, wine and local home cooked food. The local pub also offers a lovely sunny pub garden with a path leading down to the river. As the seasons change, the pub promises a jolly atmosphere in the evenings too; with games and live music to warm the cockles on a dark winter’s night.

Free public road parking can be found just a short walk away, along Salty Lane. The semi-rural track along which the cottages are situated is just a short stroll away from Shaldon.

Packed with useful shops, a colourful array of popular cafes and a selection of acclaimed local eateries (including the Michelin star Ode Restaurant), the quaint fishing village of Shaldon is home to everything; from fine cuisine to wholesome crab sandwiches! The riverside setting also makes it the perfect base from which to enjoy plenty of scenic dog walks. The passing South West Coastal Path provides a breath taking range of coastal and countryside walks on the doorstep; with nature trails, bird watching and forest walks accompanying most of the routes. The riverside setting also invites many to take to the water with canoeing, sailing and water sports.

A local park and recreation ground, a 9-hole golf course, a charming local zoo, a host of lovely beaches and the Homeyards Botanical Gardens can also be found in Shaldon. In August time, the village also succumbs to the joviality of the annual Shaldon Regatta, so be prepared to get swept up in the merriment!

Shaldon also offers a passenger ferry service to Teignmouth (from where trains operate to Exeter, Plymouth & London).

Visitors are within a 20 minutes’ drive of the lively attractions of Torquay, whilst the surrounding area is also awash with beautiful National Trust attractions, beaches, coastal tourist attractions and sport activity centre to enjoy.

Nearby Dartmoor also offers a dynamic day out for walking, mountain biking, wild swimming and extreme sports.
