  • "We have just finished a wonderful short break at Tidewater."

    It was absolutely perfect for 4 families (8 adults and 5 young children) with beautiful, large rooms which provide enough space to spend lots of time together and have plenty of privacy when needed. The heart of the house is very much the kitchen / dining room which was absolutely perfect for socialising and exceptionally well arranged for cooking/preparing meals. The living room has an amazing view over the countryside and has the ideal sofa for sitting on and watching the world go by. The weather wasn’t right for opening the bi-fold doors but it would be easy to imagine how, in the summer, that would be an amazing feature to make the most of. The rain also limited use of the outdoor area/furniture but it is extremely well laid out and would be fantastic in better weather. There was no amount of rain which was going to stop the kids making the most of the immaculate play facilities though; they loved the trampoline, slide and swings in equal measure (puddle suits and wellies were required!). The bedrooms are all well presented and comfortable - the master is a particularly special highlight while the ‘kids bedroom’ with the bunkbeds is a really unique addition for this sort of property and enjoyed. The library of books in there is a lovely touch which was enjoyed. More practically, the instructions for everything from accessing the WiFi to sorting the recycling to how to operate the lights are all provided and clear to understand. Additionally, the hosts were available to answer any questions and checked in with a non-intrusive and reassuring frequency which was appreciated. It is worth noting that the house is at the top of a long and steep single tracked hill to get you out into the beautiful countryside - not challenging to those familiar with Devon country roads, but worth a Google Maps check for any city-dwellers only used to urban roads (as proved by the family members who had driven down from Birmingham and shared their surprise at the road!). This was a first rate property and set up for a holiday home away from home and cannot be highly recommended enough. The only question now is when we can get back for another visit…

  • "We have just had a lovely holiday at Tidewater, Shaldon."

    We are a family of 9 but it was very spacious and comfortable, and very well equipped. Our 3 granddaughters spent most of the time that we were at the house, playing in the garden on the play equipment. We had some great days out locally.

    Thank you for your review, Nicola. We’re so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay and the family-friendly facilities we offer in Tidewater. We’re pleased you liked the location as well - lots of lovely places to visit. Thank you for being such wonderful guests. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic property."

    Beautiful garden, great views. Kitchen well equipped. Friendly neighbours. Everything you needed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It could have had a hot tub, we hired one, but people with children would appreciate it being inclusive. Our host went out of her way to accommodate us ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Lynda, We’re so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the lovely feedback. You were all lovely guests and we’d love to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

The property

Perched in the pretty village of Shaldon near the River Teign, discover this fabulous five-bedroom, German designed abode, Tidewater.

Benefitting from a spacious enclosed garden, off-road parking, dog-friendly accommodation, and stunning décor throughout, mixing both sustainable and luxury features, Tidewater welcomes a total of twelve guests to bask in the ultimate retreat to Devon.

Upon entering your new home-from-home, be impressed by the fully-equipped kitchen, housing an array of splendid appliances guaranteed to ease your self-catered stay; allow the allocated chef to rustle up a tasty homecooked meal before settling down to dine and socialise, or bring the outside in by throwing open the patio doors, dining alfresco upon the patio.

On cooler evenings, take advantage of the stunning sitting room or snug, two idyllic spots to curl up, the first enjoying views up the estuary towards Dartmoor; click on the Smart TV and relish a movie or two with your loved ones close.

The younger members of your group will certainly want to optimise their time outside, with a sunken trampoline, swing, and slide to keep them occupied, whilst the adults of the group can enjoy the professionally landscaped garden, gather around the chiminea, or even hire out the hot tub for an indulgent soak.

If you’re seeking some much-needed alone time, escape to the sleek bathroom on the first floor, treating yourself to a warm shower or indulgent soak in the tub before completing your all-important skincare routine.

When sleep calls, five magnificent bedrooms await, including a ground-floor double, two king-sizes on the first floor with en-suites, accompanied by a double and family room with two bunk beds, catering for a variety of sleeping arrangements.

In the morning, begin your adventures along the coast, paying a visit to Shaldon Wildlife Trust, Shaldon Botanical Gardens or Shaldon Approach Golf Course if you’re looking to test out your swing; the centre can be reachable by a short car journey, or a longer walk, quite steep on return.

Further afield, discover an array of scenic coves at Labrador Bay and Smugglers Cove or travel to Maidencombe Beach, a wonderfully picturesque destination where you can soak up the sun’s rays or paddle the shores.

In Teignmouth, enjoy Teignmouth Beach, Pavilions Teignmouth, Teign Heritage – Teignmouth and Shaldon Museum and Teignmouth Lighthouse, all before refuelling with some hearty grub at a selection of pubs, cafés, and restaurants nearby; the coastal town can be reached via train, which the station is a short car journey away from Tidewater.

With the bustling city of Exeter, Torquay, and the Dartmoor National Park within reach by car, you’ll never be short of things to do or see.

Enjoy a memorable group celebration at the stunning base of Tidewater.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £600.
