“lovelly period cottage”

We had a lovelly weeks holiday in a very comfortable cottage with plenty of space. We felt that for 4/5 rating it lacked attention to detail; Bedding and bathmats . Parking was a nightmare and the neighbours were very unfriendly and unwelcoming to Sheldon. The facilities in the village were very good. The London Inn is worth a visit for a lovelly meal & only two minutes from the cottage.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

When we arrived at the cottage, we were surprised by how tight the parking space was and how difficult it was to access it! After this we had a few further problems that were dealt with within a few hours, then we could start to enjoy our holiday! The cottage was very nice and homely, we really enjoyed staying there.

Shaldon is a small place and there isn't a lot to do when the weather is poor. We found Ness Cove to be the best beach (red sand), it was sheltered from the wind, so as soon as the weather improved slightly, the children had a fabulous time playing there.

“Great facilities and a wonderful location”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The cottage is large enough for an extended family with a large lounge, a large dining kitchen and a pleasant garden. the four bedrooms are ideal for grandparents, parents and children. There facilities are all there in the cottage and the beach, restaurants and shops are all in walking distance. The butchers is excellent and the Bakers is wonderful. All in a small village opposite Teignmouth. We manged with one car with the aid of public transport.
