The boathouse is located right on the water's edge with all the wildlife and rivercraft going past right in front of you. You can sit and watch paddle boards, kayaks and waterskiers, followed a little later by the ducks, swans and egrets from the comfort of your sofa. The boathouse offers amazing views of the Estuary and surrounding countryside up to Haytor on Dartmoor from every room. There is a waterfront patio to for outdoor dining and living, or you can head for the nearest bar/restaurant which is only 300 metres along the foreshore. If you like walking or cycling there are fantastic routes all around you and you can indulge in any kind of watersports right from your doorstep.

The peace and quiet make it a perfect spot to read, write, paint, play music or just look at the spectacular views and natural wildlife on the river...

Interaction with guests
The famous Templer Way passes the boathouse on its way from Haytor on Dartmoor to Teignmouth, a walk of some 18 miles. Best advice is to get a lift to Haytor and then walk back. From Shaldon beach a regular ferry runs all year round across the Teign Estuary to Teignmouth, a lively seaside town bursting with cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. Make sure to visit the excellent Crab Shack restaurant on the back beach for fresh crab and lobster.
