Compass Cottage is a delightful coastal holiday property in Shaldon, a trendy seaside town with a buzzing café culture, the Michelin star Ode Restaurant and good independent shops and delis.

Compass Cottage is beautiful, packed with coastal style reflecting its fabulous location in the heart of Shaldon, overlooking the village green. The property is just 300 yards from the beach so don’t forget the buckets and spades!

This coastal bolthole is perfect for a couple or family. The open plan living room is stylish with two leather sofas and dining table and chairs. The cream and grey decor adds a touch of sophistication to this stunning cottage. The style and palette continues upstairs in the two bedrooms - both are beautifully furnished and the master bedroom has a lovely bay window overlooking the green.  

Shaldon is a quaint little fishing town, opposite Teignmouth at the mouth of the River Teign, hop on one of the regular ferries and explore further afield. It’s a great place for dog walking too with the South West Coastal Path offering some fabulous coastal walks right on the doorstep. Follow one of the nature trails, do a spot of bird watching on the river or try your hand at one of the water sports on offer. Golfing enthusiasts will enjoy the 18-hole golf course, the charming local conservation zoo is a must, as are the fabulous beaches and the Homeyards Botanical Gardens. Visit in August and join in the fun of the annual Shaldon Regatta, so be prepared to get swept up in the merriment!

Guests are within a 20 minutes' drive of the lively attractions of Torquay and the surrounding area has many popular National Trust properties, beaches and coastal tourist attractions. Nearby Dartmoor also offers a dynamic day out for walking, mountain biking, wild swimming and extreme sports.
