Mrs Dent October 2020
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.
Mr Birchill August 2020
Beautiful cottage, excellent location, clean with all the necessary requirements. Looking out of the bedroom window over the estuary was fantastic.
Mrs Royle August 2020
This is a beautiful well kept cottage in a superb location. We really enjoyed our stay.
Mr Maggs July 2020
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 ??????????
Mr Ireland July 2020
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.
Mrs Haddock September 2019
We have been to Sailaway several times and the standard of accommodation is excellent. Always clean, comfortable and well equipped.
Mrs Kendall August 2019

Mrs Hinder March 2019
Fantadtic place - I'll be back!!!!!
Mrs Dunstan October 2018
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 .
Mrs Wrench October 2018
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.
Mrs Roughly October 2018
Possibly the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in.
Mrs Winfer September 2018
Could not fault anything.
Mrs Fleming August 2018
A comfortable and well equipped cottage in a glorious location. We will be back.
Mr Taylor August 2018
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.
Mr Haslewood July 2018
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.
Mrs Kendall July 2018
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.
Mrs Vowles July 2018
Adorable cottage location perfect five star comfort
Mr Shaw June 2018

Mrs Carter March 2018
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.
Mrs Redpath March 2018
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.
Mrs Davies February 2018
It was a fab house in a lovely setting. Attention to detail and fixtures and fittings were of the highest quality.

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.
Mrs Haddock June 2017
This was our second stay at Sailaway. Once again everything was perfect.
Mr Leeke June 2017
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.
Mrs Chadwick May 2017

Mrs Caldwell March 2017
Location wonderful, walking, using buses, eating out, ferrying to Teignmouth. Try crab shack, lovely people. Thank you.
Mrs Jones February 2017
Such a lovely clean cottage. Perfect location, comfortable furnishings. Thought of everything.
Mr McQuillan October 2016
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.
Reply from Classic Cottages
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
Mrs Dossett August 2016
A truly lovely cottage ina great location.
Mrs Parkes August 2016
Lovely courtyard garden which is a real sun trap.
Mrs Matthews July 2016
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 )
Reply from Classic Cottages
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
Mrs Haddock July 2016
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.
Mrs Kirbyshire June 2016
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.
Mrs Kendall May 2016
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.
Mrs Vowles May 2016
