Comfortable and clean house just right for couples/small family. (As our son said - small but spacious). Quiet location with shops 5-10 min walk. Lovely courtyard space for the dog and enjoying the afternoon sunshine.

Beautiful cottage, excellent location, clean with all the necessary requirements. Looking out of the bedroom window over the estuary was fantastic.

This is a beautiful well kept cottage in a superb location. We really enjoyed our stay.

Location, location location. Sailaway has it all. Fantastically equipped with quality furniture and top of the range kitchen appliances. Beautifully decorated and clean. With fabulous views over the estuary and beyond to the moors. Don’t think about it, book it. ?? Chris and Jake from Houghton Kevin and Sam from Fownhope. And Reggie too ??????????

A beautifully furnished cottage in an ideal location overlooking the estuary. No traffic as cottage is fronted by a pedestrianised path running alongside the waters edge. Loved our stay.

We have been to Sailaway several times and the standard of accommodation is excellent. Always clean, comfortable and well equipped.

The owners are caretakers put so much care and attention into this property. It really is a beautiful cottage with every need catered for.

The location is perfect with lovely views of the Teign estuary.

We would highly recommend this property and will have no problem making a return in the future.

My forever cottage is special in every way what more can a lady from Bristol say ??????

The best Classic property we have stayed in

This property is 5 star and then some. You could not be disappointed renting this property.

Thanks so much for your review - we're delighted to hear how much you liked the lovely Sailaway and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Kari, Customer Support

Fantadtic place - I'll be back!!!!!

Perfect in every way. I would say the best equipped cottage we have ever stated in , high quality furnishings, utensils and kitchen goods. The cottage is well situated, fantastic views over the estuary , cosy and spotlessly clean. Local people are friendly, village shops sell excellent products, butchers sausages amazing and the bakers wow. Local pubs welcoming , staff friendly, excellent value and good home made food. Most definitely , looking for another break away in the UK soon , it will have a lot to live up too believe me .

This cottage more than exceeded our expectations. The property was spotless, a credit to the housekeepers Hilary & Mike. The fixtures and fittings, including linen, were of a very high standard. The views were lovely and the pretty village of Shaldon was a joy to explore. We would highly recommend this property.

Possibly the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.

Could not fault anything.

A comfortable and well equipped cottage in a glorious location. We will be back.

A convenient, well placed and very well appointed cottage. Out of the way of any crowds but just a sort stroll from the village centre and beaches. Everywhere in the Village, Tiegnmouth and Dawlish is very dog friendly . From the cottage it's only a 15 minute walk across the bridge and along the side of the railway to Tiegnmouth, and a 5 minute drive to Morrison's. Cannot quite make my mind up which of the 5 pubs I likes best but I think if pushed I would say The Shipwrights Arms for the best drink and The London Inn or the Clifford Arms for something special eat, The Ness and the Ferry Boat are also well worth a visit and the food in the Shipwrights is god value and plentiful. Cannot wait for our visit here next year.

Sailaway Cottage was immaculately clean inside and out. Top quality bedding (which is most important to us). All fixtures and fittings and kitchen equipment top whack quality too. Would definitely recommend Sailaway to anyone visiting Shaldon. Beautiful views and handy for bus stops.

Our third visit.... so far!

A beautiful cottage in the perfect location. The owners have thought of every last detail and it is furnished and equipped to a high standard.

The beach is just beyond the front door and a short stroll to the village for a nice selection shops and eating places.

Adorable cottage location perfect five star comfort

Immaculate property, well maintained & beautifully furnished. Fantastic location: great views and access to local pubs/restaurants.

again ...... Location and forever changing views are second to none, in this wonderful comfortable cottage. Our third visit - says it all!

An excellent property! One of our favourites. Excellent furnishings and equipment. Very comfortable beds. Love the enclosed sun-trap patio and the garage. Always enjoy booking with Classic Cottages for super friendly and efficient service.

Fantastic Property in a wonderful settings. Spotlessly clean and everything was of top quality. I did read in a previous review that the garage was small and this did slightly worry me, however, we have a Peugeot estate car and it fitted in easily.

It was a fab house in a lovely setting. Attention to detail and fixtures and fittings were of the highest quality.

Just gorgeous. Lovely stay as always.

Cottage, furnishings, equipment and location all first class.


Superb cottage in a great setting. Unspoilt village with great friendly pubs for the dog. Already booked for next year!

Anazing cottage...beautiful views...amazing location...cottage very well appointed...was definately a home from home..

Beautiful cottage, ideal in every way.

Great cottage and location. The best dog friendly cottage we have found, by some distance.

A beautifully presented cottage. The owners have thought of every last detail and it is so much more than a home from home. It is immaculately clean and a real pleasure to stay here.

This was our second stay at Sailaway. Once again everything was perfect.

Sailaway was just lovely bright clean and modern with everything provided we could possibly have needed. Being able to watch the estuary change during the day was just magical. We love Shaldon such a joy quite and beautiful. Local butcher and bakery a bonus.

A very delightful cottage will definitely use again

Excellent cottage in every way. Beautifully equipped, with comfortable beds and high quality furnishings. Spotlessly clean. Loved the sun trap patio! Perfectly dog friendly too. Thank you.

Location wonderful, walking, using buses, eating out, ferrying to Teignmouth. Try crab shack, lovely people. Thank you.

Such a lovely clean cottage. Perfect location, comfortable furnishings. Thought of everything.

This is a fantastic cottage with beautiful views, is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The only downside is that if you have a medium/large car you would not be able to get it into the garage so would have to park away from the house in a public car park.

We're very happy to see that you enjoyed your stay at Sailaway. We advertise the parking space for a medium-sized car (we consider that to be the equivalent of a VW Golf) but there is a short stay car park nearby where vehicles can be left free of charge overnight or for up to four hours during the day. Tanya, Customer Support

A truly lovely cottage ina great location.

Lovely courtyard garden which is a real sun trap.

Property excellent - however, could do with a mirror above chest of drawers in back bedroom as lead on hair drier is not long enough to use in front of wardrobe mirror. Also all windows only open about 2 inches wide - in this heat would like to have been able to open fully. Your description and delivery on properties is excellent - would have no hesitation whatsoever in booking with you again ( as we have done in the past )

Thanks so much for your review of Sailaway and we're sorry you had some trouble with the windows. We've spoken with the Owner who's let us know that they can occasionally be a little stiff (depending on the weather!) but with a little perseverance they do open fully - she's going to pop a note into the cottage information to let future guests know. We've also passed on your very useful suggestions which she's certainly going to consider - many thanks. Bryony, Customer Support

We would recommend this cottage as we found it perfect for a holiday in a lovely area. It is within walking distance to local amenities. There is a lovely bakery and butchers close by and all the local pubs served excellent food and were very dog friendly. The cottage was exceptionally clean and welcoming. Furnishings and bed were very comfortable. Sailaway is an excellent holiday cottage. The interior is tastefully decorated and the furniture is comfortable. It is nice to have an enclosed patio to sit outside. We enjoyed our holiday and our dog was made very welcome.

The high standard of accommodation, the cleanliness and cosy feel made for one of the best holidays we have had, can not recomend it highly enough. Fantastic location people so friendly and helpful.

A real gem of a property. Furnished to a high standard with all creature comforts and plenty of technology! The house is light and airy with a very welcoming feel. The location overlooking the estuary is spectacular.

No moans or groans I truly did not want to go home my forever place sailaway cottage at shaldon my second visit will surely visit a third time x

Lovely, homely cottage in a beautiful village in Devon.

It is lovely to look out over the estuary during the day and in an evening the twinkling lights of Teignmouth.

We have stayed in many cottages around the country,but Sailaway has to be the best !!!. Only one word discribes the property " FANTASTIC ".

The perfect holiday cottage in every way
