Overview

About the property

Large 4 Bed House with stunning river views, comfortable interior & sunny garden

BRAND NEW ~ Using the latest 3D tour technology, you can literally immerse yourself inside Salty House and walk throughout the house with your mouse or keypad! Just scroll right to the bottom of this page and under the "Facilities" section, click on the link "Salty House 3D Interactive Tour".

This wonderful and peaceful self catering holiday retreat in Shaldon in South Devon is the perfect place to stay for a family or group of friends.

Salty House is an early 18th Century Grade II listed property; very well maintained & comfortably furnished and with spacious proportions. There is also a terrace with table & chairs for 8 guests, a much loved private garden with beautiful flower borders which enjoys excellent views over the River Teign, harbour and the moors.

There are 4 bedrooms, sleeping 8 people comfortably, one family bathroom, a family shower room on the 1st floor, a cloakroom WC on the ground floor, a well appointed kitchen including double oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and ironing facilities.

The house is just 10 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 from Shaldon Bakery, or just relax over lunch after a spot of crabbing at the Clipper Café. Also don't forget to visit The Yummy Shop for delicious ice-creams, local jams & pickles, cakes & biscuits and gift hampers created with your choice of 'yummy' products!

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 home made 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) 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!

Steeped in history as far back as the Celts, Saxons and King James 1, the pretty village of Shaldon offers the perfect setting for a fun and lively coastal break. The village is full of local life & traditional shops, offering something for everyone, and plays host for nine days each August to the Shaldon Regatta, reputed to be the oldest in the UK.

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. A 9-hole 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 beach where you can enjoy BBQ's on the beach looking out to the open sea. Further afield, a treasure trove of National Trust sites await, alongside the leisure pursuits of Dartmoor.

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).

Shaldon

Shaldon is a pretty, unspoilt village which is situated on the Teign estuary. A ferry runs a frequent service to the larger resort town of Teignmouth, which on the opposite side of the estuary.

Shaldon has a long clean sandy beach, grocery shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and also a Zoo! Shaldon Zoo is located in beautiful woodland and you will be able to see a variety animals, including some smaller more endangered species.

It still retains much of it's old world charm, with many thatched cottages and a typical village green. It has a thriving community and several local families are still linked to the fishing industry.

It is quintessentially English especially when you see the locals playing bowls on the small central village green. You could even think the Spanish Armada may be appearing off the Ness at any moment! The green, as you would expect is overlooked by the local pub and each Wednesday in the season there is a local gift market, the 1785 day! People dress up in Georgian costume and there are often entertainers, including local musicians.

The green is central to the Village and leading off from this you can explore further inland (but not too far) or walk to the water edge where at low and mid tide you can walk down the estuary. The estuary stretches across to Teignmouth its larger neighbour and can be reached by Ferry from the beach! The main channel is relatively deep water which is why you will see the occasional larger industrial boat moving up of down the far channel under guidance of the Shaldon and Teignmouth Pilot.

In 1909 the ferry moved into the modern era and installed an engine. No more oars and when the tide is in flood you may imagine they were relieved when fuel replaced muscle! ! The boats have been traditionally painted black and white for 300 years and remain this way today! Records show that a ferry has been operating since the 13th century! That’s before the Pilgrim Fathers reached their new home!

If you walk to the top of Shaldon, along the shore front and then narrow road, you will find the Shaldon Wildlife centre, which is a dedicated conservation “zoo”. This “Trust” is next to the public car park and this is the easiest place to park to reach the Ness beach.
