We had a lovely time at Bay Cottage, the location is amazing, the cottage is among the best equipped we have ever had, & the beds & furniture are comfy & inviting. Our grandsons loved the ‘pods’! Very reassured regarding the cleaning procedures which are in place especially given the current pandemic. Everything had been thought of, the owners are lovely & still managed to give us a warm welcome whilst social distancing! The fresh flowers in our rooms were a lovely touch & much enjoyed. A cottage full of character & yet modern & comfortable where it matters.
Mr Fenwick October 2020
Lovely property with high attention to detail. Hosts were very welcoming but not intrusive. Fresh flowers were a charming touch. Great location near local pubs, and estuary walks.
MR SMITH August 2020
Just got back from a lovely stay in Bay Cottage. The views from the lounge are fantastic and the close proximity to everything that Shaldon has to offer was perfect. The grandchildren loved the pods in the bedroom and were very happy as were we in the lovely super king sized bed which is probably one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in. We would thoroughly recommend Bay Cottage as a delightful place to stay and hope to be back next year.
Mr Gerrard August 2020
The cottage is very well located with great bay views, it is pretty comfortable generally and the owners were welcoming but we were disappointed with the lack of bathroom and kitchen facilities and we expected better at the premium price asked for the week’s let.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Bay Cottage and we're so pleased that you enjoyed those wonderful views. Bay Cottage includes an electric Aga as mentioned in the description which we appreciate does take a little longer to warm up compared to a convection oven, but we feel a wonderful addition to this lovely property. The property is also equipped with a shower-room, bathroom with bath and shower attachment and an en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath and shower attachment. The owner is however going to put in additional shower facilities in the middle bathroom so guests will be able to choose a bath or a shower in the future. Bryony, Customer Support

A brilliant location with so much to see and do. Spotlessly clean accommodation with lovely homely touches like fresh flowers, games and books. Hard to find a property to suit all 3 generations for a family holiday plus a dog, but this did! Less able family members enjoyed watching the world go by from the bay window and the children thought the pods with their tech were fab. Denise & Roger are wonderful hosts. We can't wait to come back.
Mrs Dimmock July 2020
Cottage was perfect, location was excellent. Everything you need in one place. It was spotlessly clean, all the home furnishing and fresh flowers around the house made it super luxurious.
Mrs Gillis August 2019
Beautiful cottage in greta location, Denise and Roger are great hosts and we will certainly be back.
Mrs Corderoy August 2019
Very narrow access on street but worth the effort as comfortable accommodation in pretty village
Mr Mars July 2019
Ideal location, comfortable property, great views over the bay, with seating outside the cottage and just across the way on the footpath opposite, and great position for being able to walk to certain areas of interest around the village/town or whatever the area is known as, would go again next year if able...
Mr Kitt April 2019
Fabulous cottage in the most perfect location
Mrs Gillanders September 2018
Lovely place to stay. I would highly recommend it. Hope to return again one day soon
Ms McCabe August 2018
Stunning views over the bay, beautiful fresh flowers everywhere, very warm and generous owners, quiet and peaceful spot very close to a beautiful coastal foot path
Miss Baxter July 2018
Bay Cottage is true luxury in the most beautiful village of Shaldon. I have stayed there once before and would never consider staying anywhere else now! The owners are so welcoming and friendly but not at all intrusive. There were gorgeous fresh flowers to greet me and the cottage is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. I hope to return many, many times ! I would recommend Bay Cottage to anyone. it's absolutely perfect.
Mr Slater June 2018
Great location, owners very pleasant and helpful. Good base to explore the area. Great pubs in the village.
Mrs Durnall April 2018
Beautiful cottage, in a perfect location. We were met on arrival by the owner, who made us feel welcome. Great to have parking off road, as many properties in shaldon have no where to park.We are looking forward to returning next year.
Mr Scott April 2018
As usual the cottage was first class and more than met Classic Cottages high standards.
Mr Cole March 2018
Lovely place to stay.
Mr Woodard September 2017
Lovely cottage , great location, friendly owners who where there if you needed anything, otherwise they left you to your devices. Nice and homely , recommended.
Mr Trumpeter July 2017
We had a marvellous, restful holiday at Bay Cottage, and we were met on arrival by Roger and Denise, and made very welcome. It helped that the weather was excellent. We were really impressed with the accommodation - beautifully decorated and furnished, and with flowers from the garden in every room. The huge 6 foot bed was so comfortable that it was a struggle to get up in the mornings! The property had a superb outlook over the harbour and the estuary, and it was a pleasure just to sit and enjoy the view. Plenty of very nice local places to eat, and good local shopping, especially in Teignmouth over the water, via the ferry.
Mr Barker July 2017
Excellent cottage in a superb location, owners very friendly , able to park car within feet of the door.
Mrs Jones June 2017
This cottage surpasses all expectations. We stayed now five times and cannot find anything to come up to cleanliness, location, friendly welcome from Denise and Roger. You will not be disappointed I guarantee
Mrs Warrington June 2017
A beautifully presented cottage in a lovely village. We are full of praise for the whole experience - just sorry we had to come home!!
Mr Phillips May 2017
Couldn't fault the accommodation; and the hosts were very helpful and generous. And as a bonus we had a week of superb weather to enjoy our stay! Superbly equipped kitchen - didn't get to try the Aga because we ate out every day trying all the excellent eateries in Shaldon!
Mrs Thomas April 2017
well equipped and good location
Miss Gregson October 2016
5 star rating for this cosy cottage!
Mrs Jones October 2016

Ms Verrall August 2016
Great location, lovely friendly hosts, beautiful décor, some really lovely touches with fresh flowers and fresh milk in a jug. Just gorgeous, would highly recommend.
Miss Baxter June 2016
The perfect property in the perfect locations! I have visited Shaldon many times and Bay Cottage is by far the best accomodation I've stayed at. Excellent hosts. Just perfection...
Mr Gudge June 2016
We have returned to Bay Cottage for 4 consecutive years now. The village of Shaldon is beautiful and friendly, and the location of Bay Cottage on the sea front, a stones throw away from the ferry and village centre, is an added bonus.
Mr Stevens May 2016
This property is 5 star in my opinion. Parking right outside the front window is a bonus in Shaldon. Lovely flat walk along the front to village centre to all shops in village as well.
Mrs Jones April 2016
We don't think it is possible to better this cottage. Would recommend it to anyone.
Mr Smith April 2016
A truly remarkable property in a fantastic location. Everything and more you could wish for. Well equipped and the Aga was a bonus
Mr Stephens April 2016
A beautiful warm and cosy cottage with a brilliant view over the bay. Fantastic base to explore Devon from whichever form of transportation you choose
Mr Luff March 2016
There's lots that's good about Shaldon, but a really unusual highlight is Ness Beach, which is a really safe haven for letting dogs run free (which is something that's not always that relaxing when away from home).
Mrs Coutts February 2016
Lively stay in well equipped apartment. Furnished to a high standard. Easy access to the beach and village. Ferry over to Teignmouth was a pleasure
Mrs Jones October 2015
Bay Cottage is such a relaxing g holiday, could stay for ever. It is the most cosy and comfortable we have stayed in
Mr Griffiths August 2015
second year at bay cottage and have booked for 2016. perfect
Mr Wensink July 2015
Excellent cottage and location. Lovely hosts. Superb view. Best bed we ever slept in. We loved the large kitchen with the AGA. We appreciated the extra goodies and the fresh flowers, fruit and vegetables from the beautiful garden. The owners love this cottage and you could sense that.
Mr Stevens June 2015
Cottage is as good as the photo gallery portrays
Mrs Harper March 2015
There is nothing we can fault about Bay Cottage especially the quaintness of it and the Owners have been very helpful. The parking outside the cottage has been a bonus.
Mrs George March 2015
Excellent property which exceeded expectations. Loved the Aga cooking experience.
Mr Francis March 2015
Excellent location handy for the beach, comfortably appointed and very peaceful.
Mrs Heyes October 2014
Bay cottage is a compact yet spacious holiday apartment with all you could need readily provided. The location is superb and quiet, and ideal for walking enthusiasts and dog owners, as Ness Cove is 5 minutes away and a very safe and vast area to excercise canine legs!
Mrs Caddy October 2014
The owners were very nice and very helpful. The cottage overall was lovely and I would recommend it to anybody.
Mr Davies September 2014

This cottage is worth every penny. Lovely
Mr Holmes June 2014
This is a great location and the cottage is the best we have stayed in 5 star holiday with out a doubt.
Mr McDowell June 2014
We would go back for the ambiance of the cottage, the position of Shaldon with its ease to visit other areas of Devon and the friendliness of the owners.
Mrs Heyes October 2013
The location was excellent. Ness beach was 5 mn away which was great to run our dog. Good access to Teignmouth via the ferry right opposite. Very dog friendly owners.
Mrs Southern-Jones September 2013
This is a fantastic choice if you want a base for dog walking abe to go on the beach from October 1st. Lovely views and close by restaurants and cafes. We were made very welcoe, very comfortable large bed, reclining chairs and flat screen tv etc Would definiteky return.
Mr Griffiths September 2013
would have no problem recommending both the property and the area. will be going back next year
Mr Powney June 2013
We spent a very enjoyable week, end of June/beginning of July, at Bay Cottage and were extremely impressed by the thought put into making it such a pleasant place to stay. Every conceivable utensil was available in the delightful kitchen and bathrobes and slippers were thoughtfully provided. The owners showed us nothing but kindness and consideration and helped to make our stay a memorable one. We shall return!!
Mrs Bagshaw June 2013
A wonderful place to stay. The owners were very attentive and most helpful in all ways. The place was spotlessly clean and little extras had been added by the owners to make are holiday feel really special.
It was fun learning to cook on an aga!!
Rock night at the Ferry Boat Inn was great with a friendly atmosphere. Jazz night at the Clifford Arms was relaxing and good value for money.
The trip run by Greenway Ferrys from Torquay, on the WW2 craft ' Fairmile ' was good value for money, interesting, and fun.
Mrs Mosley May 2013
Really lovely cottage in a wonderful situation - wake up to a different sea-scape every morning, walk down to the paper shop and say hello to at least half a dozen people on the way, watch the boats from a bench outside or ,on a cold day, from the front window. Warmth of the Aga never fails. Owners on hand to say, 'Aren't we lucky being here?'
Mr Gudge May 2013
We found the owners to be very friendly and welcoming. The furnishings and fittings within the cottage are of a quality that I would aspire to put in my home. The location is excellent for the beach, shops and pubs in Shaldon, and the ferry to Teignmouth. My wife and I would happily stay here again, even if it were in a higher price band!!!
Mrs Watton March 2013
We have entered comments up in Bay cottage guest book but will certainly be booking Classic cottages again as we feel they are different from other companies.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
