Further stairs lead up to the third floor and the master double bedroom (5’) with large circular feature window and beams.

There's also a small snug/den under the eaves, complete with Smart internet enabled TV, Xbox One and bean bags, a great addition to keep kids occupied if the weather turns.

Outside and to one side is parking for one medium sized car and to the other a gated and enclosed courtyard garden with clever mood lighting, table and chairs and space for storing watersports equipment.

Shaldon boasts some acclaimed foodie hot spots and Topcliff Cottage offers a brilliant base for exploring by foot with shops, cafes and pubs all within an easy stroll.

The coastal path runs close by and from the river beach a pedestrian ferry will whisk you over the estuary to the larger seaside resort and busy port of Teignmouth with its pier and mainline railway station (also accessible by road bridge).

A little further along, behind the iconic Ness headland is a small zoo and a former smugglers tunnel that leads down to a secret cove. The larger resort town of Torquay is 7 miles along the coast, if it’s city life you’re after then the busy cathedral city of Exeter is 15 miles or if rugged landscapes are your thing then head for the wild rugged hills of Dartmoor National Park also within half an hours drive of this comfortable retreat.
