The two bedrooms and fabulous shower room are on the ground floor with living accommodation to the first floor. The property has partial river views and overlooks the village green in Shaldon, a popular spot and a great place for picnics. The vaulted ceiling in the open plan living and kitchen area makes for a sociable space with a couple of sofas, sofa bed (for additional guests) and TV. The kitchen is well equipped with all moderns appliances including waste disposal, washing machine and dishwasher. The contemporary circular dining table is a perfect addition to the room, sitting adjacent to the expansive full height window - you can take in the views over breakfast.

Shaldon is a quaint little fishing village opposite Teignmouth at the mouth of the River Teign, it’s easy to hop on one of the regular ferries and explore further afield. The area is popular with walkers 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. Nearby Dartmoor also offers a dynamic day out for walking, mountain biking, wild swimming and extreme sports. It’s possible to arrive at Shaldon by public transport via Teignmouth with trains operating to Exeter, Plymouth and London and the ferry service from Teignmouth to Shaldon Beach.

Jean & Tony Yates,

We have just returned home after three nights at Oyster Cottage and we should have stayed longer very well appointed cottage in the heart of Shaldon on the village green .A very short walk to the butchers , bakers and village store or if you want someone else to do the cooking a choice of pubs restaurants and cafes . We enjoyed the cosy cottage very much and will hopefully book again soon.
