Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic holiday in Rooster Hall, what a great area, nice and peaceful but minutes from the beach and only short drives to other attractions and towns. Would recommend to family and friends and can’t wait to return next year.

Please pass on our thanks to Lesley.



The next door neighbours were very friendly and helpful

The outdoor covered area was excellent for eating under at night

The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped well suited to those with a grown up family or two families sharing as it provides excellent privacy.



A lovely cottage, very clean and well kept. We had a lovely holiday.



You have furnished the cottage very nicely and I have to say, the children loved their bedroom!



A lovely cottage, warm and comfortable.



Your cottage is so pretty and has been perfect for our stay in Devon. The weather has been a real bonus also. Sophie loves the two cats (Lilly and Harry) from next door.

Charming, comfortable, central

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week stay at Rooster Hall was, without a doubt, the best self-catering holiday we have ever taken - and we have done many throughout Europe. The house is beyond charming, with its thick stone walls, thatched roof and large garden. The rooms are large, the beds wonderfully comfortable and the furnishings well chosen. The full-kitchen was a boon for our family of 6, who love to cook and used the covered outdoor table in the garden every day. The two full bathrooms were also practical with the house full.

Rooster Hall is located within very short walking distance of Shaldon and the foot passenger ferry to Teignmouth, both lovely places to visit. We also found that we were within easy driving distance (15-60 minutes) of a wide variety of places to visit and activities, including: walking on the moors, riding a steam train, taking a river cruise, swimming in the sea, visiting abbeys, market towns, castles and more.

After our busy days of exploring Devon, we were always happy to return to the peace and quiet of Rooster Hall in the evenings.

As for our booking, the owner and the manager were always quick to respond to all our queries, both before and during our stay. The entire booking process went smoothly.

We can highly recommend Rooster Hall and the entire region of south Devon. We had a perfect holiday and hope to return one day soon.

Wonderful retreat with everything you could want a

  • 5 of 5

Easy to follow directions to a lovely secret retreat. The cottage was beautiful inside and out and so well equipped. The 'retro' board games provided an evening of entertainment and much tongue in cheek hilarity. Lovely and warm when we arrived and a very welcome bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, and ice in the freezer ready for the gin and tonic. Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all. The local shop about 20 minutes walk away. The bakery in the village very friendly and the local speciality 'uglibuns' worth trying. We discovered 3 different walks. Maybe a book with local walks would be an idea? Highly recommend Rooster Hall. The Shipwrights Arms (10 minutes walk away) very friendly, and 26 different gins!! The Clipper cafe by the beach good lunch menu. A bit pricey but worth it. 👍

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The Teign estuary is a 6 minute walk, and from there you can walk along the waters edge to the first of Shaldon's lovely sandy beaches - another 6 minutes. Further along, past a superb pub, accessed via a smuggler's tunnel, you will find Ness beach. There are numerous other beaches close by including Dawlish Warren - rated as one of the top 5 beaches in the country with two miles of golden sands backed by dunes and a nature reserve.

Travel:

Shaldon is very easily accessible.

Exeter airport 19 miles

Plymouth airport & ferry 39 miles

Bristol Airport 80 miles - 1.5 hrs on the M5

Teignmouth station 2 miles

The M5 provides fantastic access from the rest of the UK , with Shaldon being a mere 20 minutes from the A38. A car is not essential as everything is available withing walking distance. However it is advisable for those days when you want to venture further afield to visit the Eden project etc.

Distances:

Shaldon village is on the doorstep, with a butcher, grocer, newsagent, gift shop, plus bars and restaurants and cafes.

Torquay is 7 miles, with everything you could possibly want, from golf courses to theatres, cinema and water sports.

Further Details:

We are so lucky to have so much to do right on our doorstep.

There are leaflets in the cottage with details of all the activities nearby. Neither children or adults will ever be bored!

Dartmoor is less than half an hour away; there are miles and miles of stunning beaches and walks to explore; or just wander down to the waters edge and soak in the ever changing views on the estuary and sea - with a glass of wine or an ice cream!
