    It is extremely well equipped with every kitchen item that could be needed. The cooker is first class and heats up rapidly. The lounge is very comfortable and has a great TV. The main bedroom is huge and has a very comfortable bed and also has a TV. There is a second bedroom with twin beds which looks nice too. We were there in late November so the heating system kept us nice and warm. Location of the property is excellent and we could see the estuary from the windows. Its a very short distance from the beach so our Border Collie loved it and she even had an extra evening walk on the beach and crisps in the real ale pub a few yards away. There is also an excellent restaurant, The Clipper, a few yards away. Even in the off season I would recommend booking a table. The owners are very hospitable and even met us to hand over the keys although here is a key safe provided. Communications were great both by email and phone. I managed to leave my dressing gown behind and the owner called to say they will send it on. We really enjoyed our break and would like to return eventually.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and also for leaving our cottage in such beautiful condition. This especially considering our ubiquitous red sand and it’s proximity to your lovely collie ! We do so appreciate this. We look forward very much to welcoming you back in the future. Very best wishes Lesley and Jim Property Owner

The property

Tucked moments from the river beach in the heart of Shaldon, Teign Cottage is a wonderful, unique Grade II thatched cottage with some views towards the river and Teignmouth beyond from both the sitting room and master double.

Inside full of character, wobbly walls and some low doors - a special place to stay but if you're over 6' or prefer level floors and ceilings then it might not be ideal.

From the enclosed terrace at the front, step down to hall with space for coats and boots, sitting room with TV and electric flame-effect fire .

Across the sand-washed hall a good sized kitchen/dining room with fitted kitchen with window seat.

Large table perfect for planning the day's activities around.

twisting and steep stairs lead from the kitchen up to a good sized landing and two bedrooms; a twin and a double with kingsize with TV, plus a bathroom (suite) complete with washing machine and small porthole on the door.

Downstairs WC Teign Cottage is a lovely, quirky and special place to stay tucked moments away from the sandy beach and the heart of the bustling village with lots of good cafes, pubs and shops to choose from.

Teignmouth across the water (accessible via pedestrian ferry or road bridge) is a traditional resort town complete with pier and mainline station.

The larger town of Torquay is 7 miles and the Cathedral city of Exeter is 15 miles away and perfect destinations for a day out exploring.
