You will find Holly Cottage a great find in the lovely village of Shaldon. Plenty of facilities for two with great beaches and pubs nearby. Stones throw from Teignmouth. Great feel to the whole place.
Mr Whittaker June 2023
Holly Cottage is a beautiful accommodation in a beautiful village. It is immaculately clean and maintained. Linda our host was a lovely lady who was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay giving good advice on where to visit, eat drink etc. It’s situated in a central location within Shaldon with the local village store, post office, butchers and bakers nearby. Shaldon also has great pubs all within very short and easy walking distances. We absolutely loved the entire experience and will be back.

Holly Cottage is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It's in a good location close to Shaldons bakers, butchers, general store and pubs. Linda, the cottage owner was very welcoming and gave us lots of information on local area. And provided a welcome basket of goodies. The cottage is more spacious than it appears in the photographs. The description that the cottage parking is for small to medium cars is quite correct, though Linda provided permit for local carparks. Though we only used our car once. Would stay at Holly Cottage again.

We had a lovely stay at Holly Cottage – it’s beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished with everything you need. It’s in a fantastic central location, with a bakery, butchers, village shop, and cafes/pubs on your doorstep, but it’s very quiet so traffic noise is not a problem. Linda (owner) was super friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome right from the start (we really appreciated the amazing welcome hamper, thank you!). The road to the free parking space is narrow, as advertised, but we soon got used to it and managed to park without a problem. Shaldon itself is a lovely little village and we can recommend breakfast at The Clipper Café, a stroll round the Botanical Gardens, and a drink in front of the fire at The Ness pub.
Mrs Wike October 2022
Very friendly & welcoming owner. The property was immaculate & a lovely welcome basket on our arrival. An ideal house for a couple. Loved the butcher's, local store & bakery just a short walk along the road, no need for supermarket visits.
Mrs Allcock September 2022

We loved Holly cottage, it was very clean, nicely furnished, everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, not to mention the lovely wecome pack. The location was ideal for us being within walking distance to all shops, cafes, beach etc. We hope to visit Holly Cottage again soon.
Mrs Elvidge July 2022
Holly cottage is a beautifully decorated comfortable cottage in the heart of Shaldon. Linda the owner was very welcoming & just next door if we needed her. All the local amenities are on your doorstep. The Shaldon bakery is very good, love the Clipper cafe & there are several pubs to choose from. Whilst we always leave the car at home when visiting Shaldon the cottage has a small parking space at the back & Linda provides a permit for a nearby car park.
Mrs Robinson June 2022
Had a lovely holiday, beautiful place and really lovely cottage. Owner made us very welcome but was not intrusive. Cottage was spotless and very well equipped . Local shops and pubs near by.
Mr Etherton June 2022
Very well appointed cottage and the owner, Linda, was exceptionally helpful. A very generous welcome basket was a good touch and we soon settled in and made the most of the location and Shaldon. All in all a lovely week and we would recommend the cottage. N.B. Do take note of the advice regarding car size, as parking at the rear of the cottage is tight.
Mrs Maynard June 2022
Holly Cottage is quite simply perfect. Ideally situated and immaculate throughout. Linda gave us a very warm welcome (which included a luxury hamper!) and remained friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I would like to mention that there is an iron and ironing board tucked away in the fitted wardrobe plus a hair dryer. Very useful items to help me not having to pack so much next time. Looking forward to our next visit and thanks again Linda for a lovely holiday.
Mrs Bush May 2022
Holly cottage is a beautiful place to stay. Thanks to Linda for being such a lovely host.
Mrs Daniels April 2022
Shaldon is a beautiful village. An exceptionally clean, modern property in the centre of the village. Linda was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble for her.
Mrs Evans April 2022
Loved our short stay at Holly Cottage and we were welcomed by our lovely host Linda after we’d settled in.There was a beautiful welcome gift basket too. Was a bit uncertain about the parking but Linda had sorted that out with a complimentary virtual parking ticket at a car park a few minutes walk from the cottage. The village itself is charming and idyllic with places to eat,walk and generally soak up the setting by the riverside. Definitely hope we get the chance for a return visit.
Mrs Downes March 2022
We had a lovely few days at Holly Cottage, it's very comfortable, well laid out and clean as a whistle. The location is great, plenty of places to eat and drink in the immediate area, plus the town of Teignmouth just across the Estuary. Parking was easy as a permit for the nearby car park was provided. Great stay and I'd highly recommend it to everyone
Mr Aitchison March 2022
Just got back from a lovely stay at Holly Cottage. Holly Cottage is a beautiful, cosy, immaculately clean and very well equipped cottage in the centre of the gorgeous village of Shaldon. Pubs, cafe's and little shops just a short stroll away. Linda, the owner was so friendly and she was there if we needed anything. Even left us a lovely welcome pack for our arrival, so thoughtful. We enjoyed it that much we have booked another stay for later this year.
Mr Plant February 2022
Holly Cottage is wonderfully decorated and very well equipped. The owner was extremely helpful & accommodating. The welcoming pack that was left for us was a very thoughtful & pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed our stay & would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful stay at Holly Cottage. This newly listed property more than lived up to our expectations. The decor has been beautifully done and everything you may need if you were totally self catering was provided for in the brand new kitchen. Attention to detail was second to none, everything has been thought out to give you a wonderful stay at this cottage. Our host, Linda was on hand if we had any questions or queries and was so helpful and friendly, even leaving a pint of milk in the fridge and some tea/coffee for our arrival. The only downside for us was the parking, this was more our issue than the hosts as our car was too big to navigate the driveway to the parking space provided at the back of the property. It just meant moving the car around to different spaces as parking restrictions apply opposite the property. It was inconvenient but wouldn't stop us returning for further stays.
