A charming property in an idyllic location, St Christopher’s Cottage is an authentic terraced house close to the river in Shaldon, a delightful coastal village on the South Devon coast.

The property has a pretty little courtyard garden with a path leading up to the front door. Step inside and relax… this is coastal charm - the living area is a lovely sociable space with an open fireplace for the cooler evenings and comfortable sofa and armchairs. The beamed living area incorporates the dining table and chairs and fully fitted kitchen. Upstairs the stylish master bedroom is decorated in a coastal palette with soft grey and white furnishings and pretty bedding, basket chair and feature Victorian fireplace. The theme continues into the second bedroom with muted tones of soft beige and blue.

The cottage interior retains a homely cottage feel throughout, the perfect choice for a family or two couples looking to spend a few days immersed in coastal living.
