Bay Cottage is just steps from the beach in Shaldon, which lines the south shore of the Teign estuary. The South West Coast Path is on the doorstep, so this is a fantastic place for walkers and dogs.
The cottage’s kitchen/diner has an electric Aga and an induction hob; travertine tiled floors extend into the spacious sitting-room, with its open plan bedroom-area, under-floor heating, and comfy leather armchairs for you to sit and gaze out of the enormous bay window and enjoy the views.
The owners, who live behind this single-storey property, can recommend activities, but you might prefer just to stroll to the beach with your coffee cup in hand. Babies up to two years old are welcome.
For the foodies amongst you, there are popular restaurants in the village, alongside some excellent pubs and cafes. Alternatively, hop on the passenger ferry and explore the historic port of Teignmouth across the water. This is a relaxing and very comfortable base for a couple and a dog, with a lovely walk up to Ness Head above Shaldon or through the tunnel to the beach on the other side of the headland, you will all have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
