First visit for us back to Shaldon following covid pandemic. Cottage owner doing everything to try and keep everyone safe with additional measures (a list of which was sent to us prior to arrival) plus liquid soap and sanitiser left for our use
Cottage has a kitchen well equipped for preparing meals with a full size cooker plus dishwasher and washing machine. A nice welcoming touch was some coffee, teabags, milk sachets and biscuits left so we could make a drink as soon as we arrived. Lounge has a tv and the wifi works well, plus DVDs, games, books and in the sun lounge there are beach toys available.
The cottage is located in a small square a two minute walk from the beach, right in the centre of the village, the square is very small with little car parking but there is plenty of nearby parking available in Horse Lane only a couple of minutes walk from the cottage, we never had any problems finding a space.
Shaldon has a good selection of small shops, there is even a chemist, we would highly recommend the bakery, fish & chip shop and the Clipper Cafe.
We have enjoyed our short break, walks into Teignmouth plus exploring nearby Ringmore and the Templar Way at low tide walking part of the estuary section, lovely to have a few days staying so close to the sea.
