Shaldon is a real gem, on the Teign estuary with higgledy piggledy streets, some excellent pubs and restaurants and a sandy beach. Just 150 yards from the shore is The Salty, tucked away down a narrow street and within easy walking distance of the beach and everything else the village has to offer. This terraced cottage is spread over three floors, with a downstairs shower-room and a delightful first floor double bedroom and open plan living-room with a Juliet balcony and an angled view of the water. On the second floor is another double bedroom, ideal for adults, with glimpses of the water. Although there is no garden, the beach is just strides away at the end of the lane.
High red cliffs, the deep colour of the soil in this part of Devon, rise above the village – and the coastal walks around here are quite spectacular. From the beach you can also take the small passenger ferry over to Teignmouth and spend a day exploring the other side of the river.

Middle Street at this end is not named so this is the entrance. The road is narrow so you might wish to unload quickly on the main street rather than take the car up, as you need to reverse out.
