Ness beach

Excellent beach. Not for the unfit as quite a lot of steps involved in getting down/up.
Great for our dog and quiet in September. Cafe by the car park (cheapish parking charges)

Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated on the mouth of the river Teign between Torquay and Teignmouth. It has a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. On a clear day, Portland Bill can even be seen despite being 50 miles away. A pretty village with two churches, a boutique, butcher, coffee shop and many conserved areas for all to enjoy.

Shaldon village

Lovely walk with our dog along the estuary into Shaldon village with a few shops/cafes. London Inn pub by the bowling green friendly pub with excellent beer and food (Best to book for Sunday lunch). If you don't like the Hi De Hi type holiday with amusements and cheap trinket shops then this is a place to visit

Very English Shaldon

A little hidden gem this village right on the seafront facing Teignmouth on the estuary, nice stylish shops and narrow streets with a bowling green and several nice pubs with good food.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

Lovely pretty village, with a host of beautiful places to eat and drink. We tried the live music at the Ferryboat Inn, and had a lovely early evening looking out over the harbour from their beer garden. The shops were good quality, though during the off-season (October) I presume they have shorter opening hours (10-4 average) and some appeared closed. Everyone we met was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and refined.

Shaldon village life

Shaldon village hosts a variety of activities throughout the summer. There is a market on the village green in traditional costume every week and the well know water carnival where sand castle competitions and decorated boats abound. The highlight of the year has to be Shaldon Regatta, which takes place around the late summer bank holiday in August where everyone is welcome to enter and regatta boats are available if you don't have your own. Also five-a-side football, beach volleyball, swimming competitions and sandcastle competitions abound. Highly recommended.

Steps!

Lots of steps to get to the beach - do not attempt with a pushchair! Nice beach once you get there.

Miss Housley November 2011

As the owner of a dog that has selective deafness when off the lead , Ness Cove was the perfect beach. Dogs are allowed all year round and as it can only be reached through an old Smugglers Tunnel, you can let your dogs off the lead in the confident knowledge that they will not wander off chasing after some errant squirrel or rabbit! Parking is free between November and March and you can get a great meal or snack at the Ness Hotel!

Smugglers

Ness beach is accessed through a smugglers tunnel, which winds through the red sandstone cliff; thoughts of ages past when smugglers trod these paths are very real. The beach itself is a surprise when you get there, wide and sweeping, with tall cliffs behind, there is no other access to the beach except at very low tides when you can get around the headland on the rocks. Perfect for dog walking, listening to the thunder of the surf, or watching the sun come up. Good sandy beach for children, but bathing can be dangerous for children at high tide.

The Teign Ferry (1 ½ miles)

One of England's oldest working ferries, the Teign Ferry provides a regular service between Teignmouth and Shaldon across a picturesque harbour estuary. The first recorded service across the Teign dates all the way back to the 10th Century.

The friendly seal

The Teign passenger ferry ploughs its way from Shaldon beach to Teignmouth and back just about every day of the year. It is great fun for the children and if you are lucky you might spy the friendly grey seal that pops its head up in the estuary from time to time. Look out for cormorants diving for fish and if the water ripples - then a whole shoal of mackerel or other small fish are under the surface.

There is a friendly local seal who often pops his head up to say hello to people using the ferry.

The Ness (1 ½ miles)

On the outskirts of Shaldon village, overlooking the Teign Estuary, award-winning beers from around the world are on offer in this Georgian hotel. Dogs are allowed in the bar and outdoor areas.

Fresco restaurant in Teignmouth is OUTSTANDING. The standard to food and service is far better than any such establishments in London and the like! Can not recommend this restaurant highly enough.

Teignmouth (2 miles)

Teignmouth has all the attractions of a seaside town, including a Victorian pier, together with the fascinating activity of a working port - large ships, fishing vessels and pleasure craft move between the sea and the estuary.
