  • "A lovely property with everything you would want for a comfortable stay."

    The property is spotlessly clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and the living accommodation modern and comfortable. The location is great for the town centre a short walk away. We used public transport to get around to other resorts so no driving was required. Parking can be a slight problem in the evening but we took advantage of the garage which is across the road from the property and cost £25 per week arranged directly with Christine, the owner, through Sykes cottage. There are lots of places to eat in Teignmouth and our favourites were The Crab Shack, The Jolly Sailor and the L’Invidia Italian restaurant. Remember to book as these places are very popular. We do not hesitate to recommend Sunvale, a lovely stay in a lovely home.

  • "This was a lovely cottage."

    It was very clean and a pleasure to say in. There could have been more blankets, though, as it was a little cold at night. However, all the facilities were good. We would like to return one day soon.

  • "Excellent accommodation and everything is of a high standard."

    Bed very comfortable. Parking was tricky , but managed to park each night.....

    Very pleased that you found the property to be of high standard. On street parking can sometimes be tricky, however, we can now offer access to a garage by the property which you can request use of at a cost of £25 per week. So always guaranteed a place to park. Property Owner

    Well placed to walk into both Teignmouth and Shaldon. Nicely furnished and pretty much everything you need is there. Nice little back area to sit and read or just relax. Both Teignmouth and Shaldon are quirky and interesting places, we very much enjoyed our stay.

  • "Neighbours both sides were very noisy."

    Downside to the information that parking outside on the road was available the fact that most days we went out and about and when we returned we could not park outside the property and we had to park way up the road was not helpful. The holiday was booked on the basis of personal parking space so will not be booking this property again. Location was good as we went to many local places with a good variety of options to enjoy.

    Thank you for your comments. Sykes, and other third party advert websites for our property advise in the text that it is 'on road' parking. We do also provide helpful information on arrival at the property regarding local parking facilities. We have not had any previous customer concerns re local noise and if we or Sykes had known at the time, would of course have helped you-, we do provide our owner contact number pre arrival and Sykes also currently has a dedicated team for assisting guests during their stay and an out of hours contact for any guest issues if you ring them outside office hours. We are however glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

    We felt so relaxed there during our stay . The home was cleaned to a high standard and the lovely furnishings made for a very comfortable stay and a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day . Sunvale is a five minute walk from the centre of Teignmouth , with a bit of an uphill walk back . Everything you need for your stay has been carefully considered by the owners who are very approachable should you need to contact them . If we where to return to this area of Devon Sunvale would be top of our list to stay !

The property

A modern mid-terraced cottage located in Teignmouth, just a short walk to the beach.

Refurbished to a wonderful standard, Sunvale promises guests an all-round comfortable stay.

Ideal for couples or a small family wishing to explore this vibrant seaside town, this retreat is also a perfect chance to unwind after a scenery-filled adventure.

The lounge is matched with grey and white décor for a contemporary finish, elegantly designed to ensure you feel truly relaxed from morning through to evening.

This room continues to a dining table with seating for six people, and a freshly fitted kitchen housing a breakfast bar for those cups of tea in the early hours.

The next floor boasts a classic family bathroom where you can get ready day to day, and a king-size double bedroom.

The single bedroom almost mirrors the previous one in style, and both are equally as promising for a peaceful night's sleep.

Wander out to the courtyard, accessed via patio doors, a lovely spot to enjoy a refreshing drink in your downtime and reflect on your holiday so far in this wondrous setting.

Teignmouth is a must-see for its working harbour, sandy beach, Victorian pier, sailing club and diving centre, a truly astounding holiday location.

A much-desired retreat in an excellent part of Devon.
