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.

Shaldon is the perfect village for a coastal break with shops, cafes and restaurants just a short stroll away-  the nearby Shipwright Arms a good option for lunch or dinner. Walk along the riverside or head out on the nearby South West Coastal Path for some breathtaking views along the south Devon coast. Alternatively get out on the water and try canoeing, sailing and other water sports available. Shaldon also has a park, a 9-hole golf course, a charming local zoo, a host of lovely beaches and the Homeyards Botanical Gardens.

What a great little cottage - spotlessly clean, lovely touches throughout and the master bedroom was my favourite room. lovely colours- very restful! We had a great holiday - the kids highlights were Becky Fall and Hound Tor where they did some great rock jumping and climbing! And of course the sweets when they arrived!
