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.

Lovely place to stay! Location was fantastic. Had a lovely break. Thank you. Couldn’t write a review in the book as couldn’t find a pen! The beds are extremely comfortable. So much so I would like to know if the owner can tell me what make of mattress it is and where she got it from as I would like to purchase one at home! A truly lovely stay and we will definitely be back x thank you

My First Visit to Shaldon - What a lovely village. St. Christopher's is so cosy and comfortable + very well equipped. Lovely evening meals at The Clipper + The Ness. Hope to make a return visit. Thank you. Cindy.

Fantastic Christmas stay in a great cosy cottage with everything you could possibly need! Thank you for the treats. The Langstons.

Past Customer,

We loved our stay at St.Christopher’s cottage, lovely local walks with the dog, good location for a short walk to local shops. We had an extremely comfortable & relaxing stay in this cottage, we couldn’t really fault the cottage in any way or local amenities. We would recommend & would happily rebook to stay again.

Mrs W,

Lovely cozy cottage in great location. Everything was provided so no need to search any further. Had such a relaxing break so can definitely recommend.

Mr M,

I would just like to say thank you for providing us with a fantastic cottage to stay in. My wife was bowled over by the extras that you placed in the cottage i.e flowers, dog treats, especially the Devon cream teas. We thought the location was great and the pub next door was my second home. Congratulations in having a very special place. Stephen/Kim Jamie + Maisie (the Westie)

Past Customer,

Lovely property that has been thoughtfully kitted out to make it welcoming and comfortable. Proximity to pub that does food is a bonus.

Mr B,

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at St. Christopher's Cottage. It had everything we needed and was conveniently situated for beach, pubs and restaurants in Shaldon and easy access to Teignmouth.

Mr M,

Good location in Shaldon close to shops. Cottage has a good space and is very cozy. Kitchen has all necessary pots and pans. There is a lovely view to the estuary from one of the bedrooms

Mr I,
