  • "The blind in the sitting room was broken , which we reported , but no action was taken, This meant that as the cottage was on the street there was no privacy."

    The stairs are so steep you have to crawl up them so no breakfast in bed or even a cup of tea. No outside space as expected or parking so vastly overpriced. No not a pleasant stay but blind should have been fixed!

  • "The cottage was absolutely lovely."

    Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location is perfect for everything that Shaldon has to offer. We loved our week there and would happily have stayed for another. The welcome gifts were a lovely touch too, thank you!

  • "On road parking is very difficult in the village due to narrow streets and double yellow lines."

    Although there was a Car park nearby the road was closed off making access extremely difficult - what should have been a five minute walk took nearly twenty minutes.

    Thank you for your feedback and thank you for scoring our property top marks across the board. Parking can occasionally be a little difficult as it is a popular village Property Owner

  • "Very well furnished property in ideal location."

    Comfy beds and quality settees. A few more untensils such as an extra pan and pyrex bowl or jug to use in microwave would be useful plus obscure glazing on front door so people can't look in when you are out. Great find. Will book again. Thanks for the prosecco - a nice welcome touch.

  • "I found the stairs very difficult some warning should be posted in description ."

    Narrow and winding my wife and I had to go hands and knees to use them. The other problem is there is No Parking at all we paid £3 60 a day to park on the edge of village some half a mile outside village up a steep hill.

    Thank you for your feedback, the property advert does state that the stairs are narrow and winding. Property Owner

  • "Just 2 very small things."

    ... no ironing faculties & the wardrobe door in front bedroom didn’t close, so had to be careful getting up in the dark. Apart from that everything else was spot on.

    Thank you for your feedback. Ironing facilities are now provided and the wardrobe door has been fixed. Property Owner

The property

Teignmouth 1.4 miles.

Discovered in the thriving seaside village of Shaldon, is this revamped terraced cottage, which sits on a narrow lane heading straight towards the glorious sea and beaches.

Originally a 200-year-old fisherman's cottage, Hillcroft Cottage holds a lot of character, perfect for a small family looking to explore the beaches of Devon.

Start your holiday right as you enter the refined open-plan living room with a kitchen space and dining area, making use of the Nespresso machine at breakfast time.

Spend an evening cuddled on the plush sofas as you watch a family film on the Smart TV whilst the woodburning fire warms you up on a frosty winters night.

Rustle up a delicious evening meal in the kitchen area before a quiet night in with your loved ones, there's even a dishwasher if you don't fancy cleaning up.

The winding narrow stairs, equipped with handrails, guide you up to the first floor where you'll find a generous master bedroom fitted with a king-size bed, choose between a waterfall or hand-held shower to wake you up in the morning in the luxurious bathroom.

Up another set of winding narrow stairs is the twin room, which partly overlooks the sea.

Grab some local delicacies from the nearby shop or stroll over to the selection of pubs and cafés, all within a short stroll of the property.

Shaldon beach is located at the mouth of the River Teign where there's a variety of stunning walks and a number of watersporting activities including fishing, swimming, canoeing, sailing, and rowing.

Less than a mile from the cottage is the spellbinding Homeyard's Botanical Gardens, a perfect place to experience the breath-taking views of Teignmouth and explore the castle.

If you're lucky enough to secure this gem in August, you'll be able to spectate the The Annual Shaldon Regatta, a 200-year-old tradition based on the river beach along Marine Parade.

Food lovers can fill up their boots at the Taste of the Teign food and drink trail, a self-guided route journeying Teign's culinary discoveries.

Visit the seaside town Torquay, a popular tourist attraction for coastal lovers, and birthplace of the late novelist, Agatha Christie, you can even walk the Agatha Christie mile, a walking tour of murder scenes from her novels.
