Simply stunning! Hygge House is beautiful coastal property in the popular seaside village of Shaldon. If you’re looking for contemporary living in a stylish retreat this one ticks all the boxes.

Accommodation is all on one level, the open plan living area is bright and spacious. The light floods through the wide French doors and elevated window at ceiling level. The corner wood burning stove is perfect for cosying up to during the cooler evenings. A large soft corner sofa face the garden, so kick off your shoes with a book and a glass of wine and just relax.  There is also thermostat controlled electric  underfloor heating throughout.  The well equipped kitchen is perfect for cooking up your favourite dishes, but why not give yourself a break and book a table at one of the excellent restaurants in the village, all within walking distance. Both bedrooms both have fabulous beautifully fitted out ensuites with large raindrop shower heads and bath tubs. The beds are strewn with fur throws with fresh white bedding and grey and white decor. Outside the Hygge has a lovely lawned garden area - perfect for children and dogs.

This scandi wood clad cabin is in a central location in Shaldon, 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 walking too with the South West Coastal Path offering some fabulous coastal strolls 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.

This fabulous coastal retreat is aptly named "Hygge" (pronounced Hoo-gah) translates from Danish, meaning bliss, cosiness, comfort and friendship. And this property delivers on all accounts, whatever the weather!

Property in a good location and lots in walking distance, with plenty of things for all the family, especially if you like messing around in water. Well equiped and comfortable. We made good use of the outside space and enjoyed lighter evenings on the verandah. A comfy, cosy property!

Mrs Susan P,

Hygge House was a perfect retreat, comfortable welcoming and peaceful.

Mr B,

Great place loved our stay

Mr S,

Very stylish and comfortable. Quiet location but still within walking distance of village shops and pubs. Loved the village, proper place with real locals and not too many visitors.

Mr B,

We had such a wonderful break away at Hygge house. We will definitely stay again, very welcoming and relaxing. Thank you so much.

Mr B,

Good location, quiet, contemporary design. Property lacked some basic facility, i.e. lack of quantity/quality of crocks and utensils. Lovely showers but would benefit from safety grab rails. Would also benefit from larger TV and access to free-view channels etc. Minimal storage and space in twin room. Nice host/owners.

Mr W,
