About Carole Slack

We both grew up locally and after a spell living in West Sussex we returned to Devon. Gary is a health care director and Carole a teacher. We love the coast and enjoy walking, cycling, skiing and eating out! We had a motor boat and spent many happy hours pottering about on the river. Our two children grew up playing on the beach at Shaldon and went to the village primary school.We are currently on secondment to the USA and so value our wonderful cottage even more on our regular visits home. We are fortunate to have a wonderful local couple managing the cottage and maintaining it to the high standards that we started with.

Carole Slack purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Carole Slack chose Teignbridge

We have always loved Shaldon and were delighted when this cottage on the Green came up for sale as this has always been our favourite location in the village. The cottage has been totally renovated very innovatively and tastefully, by two local people. Oyster Cottage is perfectly situated and due to the thoughtful reverse level design you can enjoy wonderful views of the green, the village, the sea and river, whilst relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. There are plenty of wonderful places to eat and drink in Shaldon, including the Clipper which is open all day and is right on the beach, the award winning Coffee Rush which serves Riverford Farm products. Or for a real treat Ode Restaurant in Fore Street or Ode Cafe at the Ness. The London Inn was completely renovated in 2013 and serves amazing food too. We have spent many enjoyable evenings with friends there while staying at the cottage ourselves. Shaldon is a quaint seaside village with so much to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

There are many wonderful things about staying at Oyster Cottage. The village green location is perfect as you are within walking distance of all the local facilities, shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and just 50 metres to the beach and ferry to Teignmouth. You can easily pull up outside to load and unload. Plenty of parking located nearby. No need to use the car for the duration of your stay, unless you want to go further afield.

It is a very bright and airy property and because of it's position the dual aspect views are fantastic. We have furnished it in a nautical style in keeping with the village ethos. We take great pride in maintaining the decor and furnishings so that it keeps it's "newly decorated" feel.

It is a quirky mixture of old and modern and includes everything from WiFi to waste disposal to make staying there as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

After five successful years with lots of wonderful comments and reviews from our happy guests, the cottage has been spring cleaned and we are ready to welcome guests old and new to Oyster Cottage on The Green. We have added even more refinements for 2017, including some decor items, but most exciting is the bathroom remodel. We now have a wonderfully spacious walk in shower, tastefully designed and decorated to fit in with the nautical and seaside theme throughout the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From guest comment book:- " There is everything you could possibly need. We ate out but everything you would need to self cater. Our family came across from Ivybridge and booked for Sunday lunch at the London Inn it was excellent but you need to book. We love Shaldon and Teignmouth as it brings back so many happy memories for us and things haven't changed much only eateries are much improved!! Thank you for the lovely cream tea and for Jame's welcome. Unfortunately the weather was awful so didn't do as much walking as normal. Many, many thanks."

Owner's Response: We love Oyster Cottage and keeping the cottage "spotless" is very important to us. We are so lucky to have some local and caring property managers who take pride in looking after our cottage and our guests. We want our guests to have a relaxing and enjoyable stay making their time in Shaldon really special. It is a wonderfully unique village, which has fantastic restaurants, pubs and cafes and excellent village shops including a butchers, bakers, supermarket and gift shop. The complimentary cream tea is bought locally. All these facilities are within easy walking distance of Oyster Cottage and the beach is just 50 meters away. You really can forget about the car for the duration of your stay.

Owner's Response: The location on the green just 50 metres from the beach and the Clipper Cafe is perfect. You can leave the car behind and walk everywhere for the duration of your stay. Also one reason we bought the cottage were the amazing views. The reverse level layout gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy views of the sea, the village, the bowling green and the fields beyond all day long. Children staying particularly like watching the ships and boats coming in and out of the harbour.

Love the Quirky cottage with the living accommodation upstairs so you had views over the sea and the hills. Clean tidy and fabulous location.

Owner's Response: The views are amazing! It's so lovely to be able to see the sea while eating breakfast or sat relaxing on the sofa. And it's just a few short steps to the beach or the Clipper Cafe, the location is great too. We work hard to keep the cottage really clean and tidy so our guests enjoy a wonderful, refreshing stay.

Owner's Response: The location of Oyster Cottage is perfect. The cottage is at the heart of village life, right on the green which is an ideal place for little ones to play or to sit and watch the world go by. It's also just a few minutes walk to the beach, cafes, local shops, restaurants and pubs. You don't need to move the car for the duration of your stay unless you want to go further afield!

Lovely house, great location, clean &comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Oyster Cottage and I'm sure it won't be the last! It is ideal for young children as only a short walk to the beach, the Clipper cafe at the end of the road and right next to the village green. The house is clean and comfortable and all communications with the owner very efficient. Also very nice large shower installed since our last visit! Great base to explore lovely Shaldon.

Owner's Response: It is always lovely to welcome returning guests to Oyster Cottage. We love the location right on the green too, it is perfect. You can explore the village, beaches, cafes, pubs restaurants and shops easily without using a car, it's so relaxing. We take pride in making the cottage really clean and tidy in preparation for every guests arrival and each year it gets a thorough spring clean too. This year we put in a wonderfully spacious walk in shower to enhance the bathroom, have a look at the photos. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests in 2017.

Perfect cottage in a lovely seaside village!

  • 5 of 5

We keep returning to this lovely cottage and it's always a delight both in the Summer and Winter. The cottage is seconds from the sea, immaculate and perfect for couples or families. Shaldon is a lovely little village that doesn't close down off-season as so many do but has restaurants and family pubs (like the London Inn) open all year round and clearly enjoyed by the locals as well. The description of the cottage is accurate and a lovely Devonshire cream tea has always geeeted us on arrival! We've had great summer holidays here as well as cosy weekends away in the winter. Would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: It is always lovely to welcome returning guests to the cottage. Each year we maintain and spring clean the cottage and add a few new decorative pieces to keep things fresh. It is true, Shaldon has something to offer all year round and the shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs are open for locals and guests all the time. The beaches and the coastal footpath change with every season, but are always fun places to be. Whatever, the time of year and whatever the weather, I truly feel that, Oyster Cottage is a happy and relaxing place to be!
