The ground floor kitchen is well fitted and there’s also a ground floor bedroom and shower room making it a good option for less mobile guests.

Sunnyside is a level walk into Shaldon so it's easy to pop out for breakfast or dinner or shop at one of the independent stores and stock up on the essentials and cook up a culinary masterpiece in the well equipped kitchen. The property is just a two minute walk from the slipway too so why note take the kayak, canoe or paddleboard and get out on the water. There’s plenty of room to store the gear in the garden.

Shaldon is a delightful seaside village with some excellent independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants so you’re not short of anywhere to go for a coffee or dinner.

Shaldon lies across the river from Teignmouth, at the mouth of the river Teign, hop on one of the ferries and explore further afield.

Follow one of the nature trails and do a spot of birdwatching on the river, alternative try your hand at one of the many water sports on offer. Golfing enthusiasts will love the 18 hole and the charming conservation zoo just outside the town is a must for all the family.
