Welcome to The Retreat, a gorgeous family holiday home, nestled in the beautiful village of Shaldon. Shaldon and The Retreat offer something special for all ages, from the sandy beach right on your doorstep, numerous pubs and fine dining options within walking distance, to a rather special wildlife zoo, again, in walking distance.
Park the car and throw away the keys, unload your bags and prepare to make some very special holiday memories. Your location is second to none, whether it's lazy days on the beach, adventure and action, or slinking back and relaxing in your beautifully furnished lower ground apartment, The Retreat and Shaldon have it all to offer.
You do have everything you need for that special holiday at your disposal on your doorstep, however, to venture further afield to enjoy all the wonders of south Devon which surround you is a must. Villages and towns such as Dartmouth, Brixham, Totnes and many more are within a very short drive away. All offering something very special, guaranteeing that memorable family day out. Or perhaps a day out shopping in the Cathedral City of Exeter sounds more like it, if so a pleasurable car journey will find you in the centre of this shopping heaven. Not forgetting that the glorious hot spots of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Bigbury are under one hour away. To explore the magic of south Devon is a must.
If exploration and rambling is what you seek, a trip to Dartmoor is a real treat. Mingling with the Dartmoor ponies as you meander through the glorious moors is a memory to treasure. Topping off the day with a spot of good food and light refreshment in one of the welcoming pubs you come across, what a perfect way to finish the day.
Returning to The Retreat is such a pleasure. The splendid open plan living design allows you to all dine, eat and play together in comfort and style, whilst the beautiful bedrooms provide the perfect escape to retire to after a full and action-packed day.
Exploring Shaldon on foot is the way to go, your enviable location allows you to park the car, hang up the keys and relax with all amenities and delights of this charming and characterful village at your disposal; you even have a fabulous pub, The Ness within a short stroll which offers a warm welcome, fine food and local ales, rather convenient for those nights you simply don't fancy cooking.
Whatever you seek from a holiday on the south Devon coast, this gorgeous house and fabulous location offers it all!
Water lovers are spoilt for choice! With the River Teign, the sandy beach of Shaldon which is literally across the road, and a host of coves nearby; sailing, angling, swimming and diving are all possibilities.
Shaldon also offers a fantastic collection of cafes, restaurants and bars, a zoo and the famous Shaldon ferry which plies the river to the Victorian town of Teignmouth. Not forgetting a wonderful selection of boutique shops, botanical gardens and a golf course, there really is something for everyone.
If you fancy exploring the iconic south Devon coast you are in the ideal spot, as you are within striking distance of many other popular towns and villages. Totnes, Dartmouth, Brixham, Kingsbridge and Salcombe are just a few of the fabulous towns and villages which surround you and are definitely worth a visit.

Another beautiful harbour sight, this one is in Dartmouth. Dartmouth is another beautiful South Devon hot spot that is certainly worth exploring.
Magnificent Dartmoor is also not too far away and most certainly worth the effort.
The Dartmoor ponies are worth the visit alone. Not to mention the amazing Dartmoor walks and numerous pubs which are peppered throughout these fabulous moors.
