Sandpiper has to be one of the best holiday cottages we’ve ever stayed in. The view from the lounge is breathtaking. We found the house comfortable, homely and welcoming. It’s conveniently situated for Shaldon which is such a lovely little town and so well-placed for exploring the area. We spent some lovely early mornings walking the dog around the botanical gardens which are on your doorstep. They are beautifully maintained with a fascinating history. Sandpiper is a gem of a place and we fully intend to return.

A gem of a property, stunning views with access to many attractions including pubs, restaurants and kayaking. Wonderful for children with the beach just across the road as well as the botanical gardens and zoo.

Main attraction was the expansive views, and they didn't disappoint. Thank goodness as I broke my ankle just before our trip so spent an awful lot of time admiring them! Binoculars were a nice touch.

We're so sorry to hear about your enforced rest, but pleased that at least you had that view to enjoy! Tanya, Customer Support

The view was amazing, always something to watch. Great to have a parking space at the property. Clean and well presented.

The wonderful views and the perfect furnishings and decor are unsurpassed

We loved our stay at Sandpiper. What a beautiful house in an amazing location. The views were awesome and Shaldon as always very friendly with lots going on over Christmas. Hope to be back

Thanks so much for your lovely review. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and plan a return visit. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

I'd book this again for the view across to Teignmouth alone and it was good to have the house binoculars there too! The open plan living space makes the most of the daylight which pours through the window that runs the entire north elevation of the living/dining/kitchen area. The proximity to the village centre is a bonus with its bakery, butcher, pubs and cafes. There is good walking nearby, a charming small zoo, a botanical garden over the road and you can get to the foot passenger ferry to Teignmouth in a couple of minutes.

Nice place with a superb vista. Good local amenities for a small village. Unfortunately we will not be returning as the price is too much even during what used to be “out of season”. Also disappointed with a pint of milk and seven biscuits representing a Welcome Pack !!!

We're delighted you liked this beautiful cottage and the location. The views of the estuary are indeed superb. Welcome packs are individual but in general (as with this cottage) provide a supply of tea, coffee, sugar and milk along with biscuits/cake and flowers on arrival, as well as an initial supply of cleaning products to get you going. We do have a variety of different styles and sizes of property, so do let us know if we can help with your choice in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

Lovely house and location. Would love to return in 2023 but just too expensive.

Stunning cottage, incredible location. Has everything you need provided. Just wonderful.

Our party of 3 stayed at Sandpiper in June 2022. One of the first things to greet us on arrival was the view and what a view. The comings and goings on the estuary and sea were a highlight of our stay. The cottage is very spacious, comfortable and really well equipped. The short walk to the beach, little shops and places to eat was a bonus even though it was uphill coming back ! We really enjoyed our holiday.

Think you should mention the steps down to property for older people 82years old myself

Lovely cottage with wrap around views from the main bedroom and all the ground floor. Very high quality furnishings and kitchen well equipped for large groups. Parking space behind cottage which easily fit one family car and I expect it could manage two small ones if needed. Shaldon was a bit sleepy in April but there were a couple of cafes and pubs open, although some not every day. Village store open every day for the basics (including some wine!). Cakes from the bakers are great. The Clipper cafe was lovely, had two very nice meals there overlooking the River, very friendly staff. Very picturesque and unspoilt little town.

On our arrival the amazing panoramic views from 4 large picture windows, taking in the Teign bridge to the coastline ending in Hampshire took our breath away.

This property is perfect in all angles: it’s only a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach, in the heart of beautiful Shaldon, lovely welcoming neighbours, everything you need in the kitchen for a Christmas feast, well equipped laundry room with back access for muddy shoes and wet over trousers, clean and contemporary inside design and decoration, clean and modern bathrooms, stunning views in all weathers and last but not least very comfortable beds! I HIGHLY recommend! We were there for a week with two young children and grandparents and we felt at home and with enough sense of privacy.

Extremely well equipped. Fantastic views over the Estuary. Efficient heating system, cosy and warm. Super clean with excellent furnishings. Convenient location. We very much enjoyed our Autumn stay in Sandpiper.

Panorama views across to Teignmouth and up the estuary are just delightful.

The kitchen was very well equipped.

For sure will book again the property
