  • "Excellent little cottage."

    Big enough for 4 people whilst still maintaining the historic and cosy feel of the property. The owners were fantastic and always on hand if you had any questions. This is a proper hidden gem, the village has everything you need and all in close proximity We will be booking again.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback Scott and family. We love sharing our cottage and are so delighted when our guests love our cottage as much as we do. We look forward very much to welcoming you back ! Very Best Wishes. Lesley and Jim xx Property Owner

  • "The property provided everything we expected."

    A little small in places but that cannot be changed due to the age of the property. Excellent shower.....and the lack of cupboard space for food is a tiny issue. All in all we had a good stay.

  • "This is a lovely character cottage in a superb location."

    We where met and supported by the owners who made us feel very welcome. The stairs are steep and narrow so difficult for a suitcase, but there is plenty of room downstairs so no real issues. Shaldon is a lovely place with a ferry to Teignmouth and onwards. We had a really pleasant stay and would highly recommend the cottage as a perfect location to stay and explore this area.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback! We’re so glad that you enjoyed our cottage- sorry about the stairs, but the cottage is over 300 years old and listed so we can’t change them. We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you back again. Very best wishes Lesley and Jim Property Owner

  • "Teign cottage is an enchanting, ancient, thatched cottage."

    The facilities are excellent & attractive. We especially loved the kitchen. You actually enjoy a view of the river from the cottage & we had the pleasure of seeing the most magical, salmon pink sunrise, during our stay. Most of all, we were able to relax & enjoy all that Shaldon has to offer! Chris

    Thank you so much Clare and Chris ! We’re so happy that you enjoyed our cottage and Shaldon. We hope very much to welcome you back again soon. Very best wishes Lesley and Jim x Property Owner

  • "Charming cottage."

    ..v comfortable -wonderful downstairs accomodation...extremely good location. The staircase. Caution is required for any age group managing the stairs -the door opening onto them makes it tricky..but once up there its quirky with its sloping floors. The bedroom is a delightful surprise..roomy and comfy. Shaldon is a very pretty place to visit and especially entertaining during jubilee week

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback! We’re so happy that you enjoyed our cottage and our village. We hope very much to see you back again soon xx Property Owner

  • "We have just had a wonderful week away at the most beautiful cosy, cute, gorgeous Teigh Cottage."

    When we arrived at the cottage it absolutely spotless clean from the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms to the bed linen. Also as it was February & very chilly the cottage was absolutely so cosy & lovely and warm, considering we were there for storm Dudley & Eurnie we felt safe at Teigh Cotrage. Lesley & her husband where such lovely hosts sent me an email before hand to explain exactly how to find the cottage, what lovely places there are to eat what local are shops there are, where you can park which was just brilliant, thank you Lesley. I will most definitely be booking again to stay at Teigh Cottage it was like home from home with all your home comfort's. And Shaldon itself is just the most beautiful village and a definite must to visit. Thank you Lesley for a wonderful stay at your beautiful cottage xx

    Thank you so much Maxine for your lovely feedback ! We're absolutely delighted that you had a wonderful time, especially in view of the storms ! Even though you had three dogs with you, we're so grateful for the lovely condition you left our cottage in, especially considering the red sand on the beach where our doggy companions love to play.. We are so pleased that you will be coming back to us and can't wait to welcome you all back. Many thanks again ! Lesley and Jim xx Property Owner

    We really enjoyed our break and Tangle the dog loved being so close to the beach, It's only a short ferry ride over to the main town of Teignmouth where you have all the shops. Lesley & Jim the owners where lovely. We would definitely stay again.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback ! We look forward very much to welcoming you back ! And Tangle of course ! Property Owner

  • "We found Teign cottage to be a first class holiday rental property."

    It is extremely well equipped with every kitchen item that could be needed. The cooker is first class and heats up rapidly. The lounge is very comfortable and has a great TV. The main bedroom is huge and has a very comfortable bed and also has a TV. There is a second bedroom with twin beds which looks nice too. We were there in late November so the heating system kept us nice and warm. Location of the property is excellent and we could see the estuary from the windows. Its a very short distance from the beach so our Border Collie loved it and she even had an extra evening walk on the beach and crisps in the real ale pub a few yards away. There is also an excellent restaurant, The Clipper, a few yards away. Even in the off season I would recommend booking a table. The owners are very hospitable and even met us to hand over the keys although here is a key safe provided. Communications were great both by email and phone. I managed to leave my dressing gown behind and the owner called to say they will send it on. We really enjoyed our break and would like to return eventually.

    Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and also for leaving our cottage in such beautiful condition. This especially considering our ubiquitous red sand and it’s proximity to your lovely collie ! We do so appreciate this. We look forward very much to welcoming you back in the future. Very best wishes Lesley and Jim Property Owner

  • "Picturesque cottage in central location."

    Very well renovated, clean and comfortable. Lovely sun trap in the front garden. Parking was easy in the large car park at The Ness with a weekly ticket bought through Teignbridge Council website, an easy 10-15 minute walk along the shore. We only needed to drive through the narrow streets of the village to load and unload at beginning and end. We found the fridge to be on the small side so couldn't do a big shop for food for the week. However, there are plenty of local places to eat out or buy food on a daily basis (a butcher, baker, grocery store) so it wasn't an issue.

    Thank you so much for giving us this feedback. Sorry about the size of the fridge, but unfortunately the cottage couldn't really cope with anything bigger. However, as you say, there are good local shops and restaurants. We hope very much to welcome you back next year. Very best wishes. Lesley and Jim Property Owner

  • "The furniture was very tired in this beautiful cottage and the lounge had a smell which suggested animals had been on the loose covers."

    The inside was not a patch on the outside. The furniture,with the exception of the kitchen,looked like it was from a charity shop. The bathrooms were nice. It met expectations because the outside was gorgeous but the inside needed sorting to the same standard. Those loose covers were fit for nothing but the bin. The ship was spoilt for ha’peth of tar.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. We have worked hard to make the cottage a characterful and pleasant place to stay. Our sofas were actually made for the cottage living room, they are plump and comfortable and normally have throws as well. We thought long and hard about what extra protection we could give our guests during this pandemic, and concluded that it would give an extra layer of safety for our guests if we covered our furniture with washable covers and these are brand new. Thus, it's much easier to sanitise our cottage between guests - we feel very happy with this solution and hope our guests appreciate this extra care and understand the reasons for it. Property Owner

  • "The location and character of this very old thatched cottage is wonderful."

    The village is both beautiful and excellently served with good pubs, local shops and cafes. One drawback is parking. The nearest car park is about 10 minutes away and up a fairly steep hill. £3.80 per day. The less fit or able need to take this into consideration before choosing this lovely cottage. Otherwise this is a lovely base for a quiet relaxing holiday.
