About the property

Charming Grade II Listed Cottage just moments from Beach & Local Amenities

**We offer Short Break stays in off-peak periods throughout the year, so please feel free to enquire for information about our 'Less than 7 night' tariffs.**

A cosy and charmingly quirky cottage

This Farrow & Ball decorated cottage has all the amenities you could want for your family holiday all packaged in a characterful and charming way. Just minutes from the beach and with a pretty patio garden, you will spend more time outside than in in the daytime - but once night comes, this beautiful cottage has relaxation written all over it. Original features including Bakerlight switches and Victorian radiators add to the quirky, vintage feel giving you a period holiday, but with modern conveniences.

Cooks Cottage: Sleeps 2-4 in 2 bedrooms, with 1 1st floor bathroom & toilet. Enjoy comfortable period, vintage decor. Roadside parking only and just minutes to the beach.

Ground floor

A couple of rounded front entrance steps lead into an inviting ground floor hallway complete with old mariner’s lamp overhead. Guests can sit back and relax in the cosy living room, fitted with original parquet flooring and benefiting from a comfortable sofa, cleverly matched armchairs with throws and squishy cushions, Sky digital flat screen TV with DVD player, pretty window seat, wood-stacked fireplace decor, handmade ‘palette’ coffee table, magazines, free Wi-Fi access, an iPod player and a selection of books, DVD's and old fashioned board games, all add to the ambience.

The separate dining room is ideally suited for gatherings of up to six, where guests can entertain themselves around the rustic farmhouse table.

Leading from the dining room into the rear of the cottage; a newly fitted kitchen offers guests the opportunity to rustle up tasty homemade meals. Featuring a ceramic sink, cooker hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, electric kettle, fridge freezer, washer dryer, toaster and a full range of crockery and cooking equipment, everything one could need is to hand. The beautiful tile work, wooden worktops and quality interior finish encourages guests to unwind with a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

First floor

From the entrance hall, a steep staircase covered with a Victorian style hemp runner and with double hand rail, leads to the quirky tranquillity of the first floor. Comprising of two bedrooms and a contemporary bathroom; the upstairs offers a practical layout to suit either couples holidaying together or parents with children.

To the left, the master bedroom offers an understated and comfy space in which to unwind. The kingsize French oak bed sits on weathered floorboards and is complemented by a luxurious, handmade Vi-Spring mattress.

The second ‘couple-friendly’ bedroom also has a unique identity with a striking bespoke driftwood headboard, a plump window seat and sheepskin rug for tired feet. Perfect for children and adults alike, although slightly smaller than the master bedroom, you will feel no less pampered staying in this room. Offering the convenience of a zip & link king size bed converting to two singles if required; the calm interior further features a rustic tallboy and useful hanging space.

The smart ‘metro’ tiled bathroom features a handcrafted copper towel rail and industrial steel porthole mirror. Old Pepsi crates used as shelves add an earthy touch to the sleek fitted bath tub & shower, WC and wash basin.

Outside

A charming stable door from the kitchen leads out to the adjoining private walled, decked courtyard, full of coastal ambience and complemented by a table & chairs for 6 set underneath pretty ‘fairground’ festoon lights; a place to enjoy memorable summer evenings and ambient alfresco dining.

A handy side gated passage leads from the front of the property directly into the courtyard, perfect for dropping off sandy beach paraphernalia at the back door.

Parking

This charming period cottage is situated along Ringmore Road with on-street parking outside the front door and further along the road.

Location

Shaldon is perfectly accessible for year-round stays, offering easy access to the vibrant delights of Torquay (20 minutes’ drive away), the historic market town of Totnes and the Exeter, Plymouth and London train service (which runs from Teignmouth Train Station).

Cook’s Cottage is situated close to The Shipwright's Arms, a quaint pub with its origins from the shipyard days of Ringmore where the nearest slipway still exists behind the pub along the sea wall.

The cottage is within a minute’s walk from the village’s main street, Fore Street where you can enjoy a morning cappuccino at ‘The Coffee Rush’, buy a fresh loaf or yummy cakes from Shaldon Bakery, or relax over lunch after a spot of crabbing off the key at The Clipper Café.

Another local favourite, Café Ode is nestled higher up on ‘The Ness’ overlooking the bay and serving fish and chips to die for and delectable homemade ice creams. You are also situated within a stone’s throw of four welcoming pubs and numerous village shops in this quaint fisherman’s village.

If fine dining is your thing, try out the award winning ‘Ode Restaurant’ (sister to Café Ode & Ode True Pizza) just a few steps from the property and run by Tim Bouget, a Michel Roux trained chef. But be sure to book in advance as they seat just 24 in their cosy front room setting!

Things to do

A host of village amenities are also on the doorstep including the passenger ferry crossing to Teignmouth (said to be the oldest river crossing in England). Lovely walks lead along the Ringmore riverside, Shaldon beach in the opposite direction and the striking South West Coastal Path beyond. Shaldon’s 18 hole Approach golf course, small zoo and the Homeyard’s Botanical Gardens can also be enjoyed. Children will love discovering the ancient smuggler’s tunnel, the only way to access the famous Ness Cove beach where you can enjoy BBQ's on the sand looking out to the open sea.

Further afield, a treasure trove of National Trust sites awaits, alongside the leisure pursuits of Dartmoor.

Guestbook comments from the manager

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the quaint, beautifully decorated and pristine Cottage. We adored the place and the gorgeous outdoor lighting. It was great for our dogs also. We are familiar with Shaldon and it is in a great location.

We will definitely recommend this gem, and we hope to return soon.
