Stayed here with our 2 very small kids (aged 2 and 6 months). It was clean and easy to access the key. It was within our budget which was why we stayed here. Shaldon is a beautiful small village with lots of charm so it was a lucky find. We parked outside the Clipper cafe after making the mistake of entering the knit of very narrow streets near the cottage.....dont even try it!! Drop off your bags and park up the hill outside the Ness hotel and Shaldon zoo. It's worth noting that the cottage is small and compact but you get what you pay for; it's cheaper than a lot of other accommodation in the area. There was no recycling at the cottage which is a pity as I've found the UK to be very eco-concious so all our rubbish went into landfill which I detest. I would recommend it though to a couple or a family of 3. It's a little squishy for more but was perfect for us at the time.To any young families staying there, there was no cot available or highchair etc but we knew this before booking.
Booked a 3-night stay through Blue Chip Holidays after viewing the property on their site. It looked fresh, very clean and bright. However upon arrival, sadly the property did not match up to the images on the website. The bedding and towels had not been changed since the last occupants had left the property and it had not been given a thorough clean. We called the owner of the cottage who was very helpful and arranged for a cleaner to visit within 40-minutes to change linen and towels. Unfortunately the cottage has a rather tired feel about it and is in need of some redecoration and upgrade. Having stayed in other self-catering accommodation, a Welcome Pack with a few basic essentials would not have gone amiss. Not usually one to complain, Shaldon is lovely but this property is in need of more attention to detail. Terry & Kate Turnbull
