Description

Thatched two bedroom cottage offers an enviable setting for your holiday.

Reputedly one of the oldest cottages in Shaldon, this tiny 17th century cottage is on the doorstep of the village amenities, the beach (1 minutes' walk away) and the smuggler's tunnel (10 minutes' walk away).

The relaxed holiday home is well-equipped to make each stay a restful one; with all the must-have features of home to hand. A traditional-style beamed ceiling invites a timeless ambience into the sitting room; which is furnished with a sofa, 2 arm chairs, an electric fire and a flat screen TV.

The cottage does not have central heating, but the thickness of the walls and the thatched roof mean that it stays warm in winter and beautifully cool in the summer. There are electric convector heaters for extra cold days.

An adjoining separate kitchen & kitchen table lets you easily rustle up a home-cooked meal whilst away. All the must-have appliances including an oven, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, dishwasher and fridge are provided.

The prettily tiled bathroom is on the ground floor, in addition there is an outside toilet, useful for sandy feet when you have spent time on the beach. Guests can also relax out in the sunny garden room, which overlooks the pretty private courtyard.

Upstairs, the 2 bedrooms are linked together; making it perfect for family groups. A spacious double bedroom leads through to a joining twin bedroom. The flexible cottage also features a single sofa bed and a baby cot.

Perfect for full-on stays; the retreat is also equipped with a washing machine and ironing facilities. We are happy to provide linen & towels if required. The charge for providing bed linen is £15.00 for a double set and £7.50 per single set. Towels are £5.00 per set (bath sheet and a hand towel).

Located in Crown Square, guests are well placed to enjoy village life. A local pub and the beach are just a stone's throw away, whilst the nearby Ness car park offers added convenience for those bringing a car.

Home to charming shops, a colourful array of cafés and a selection of acclaimed local eateries (including the Michelin Star "Ode Restaurant"), the quaint fishing village of Shaldon offers something to tickle every taste bud, from fine cuisine to a wholesome crab sandwiches!

A tempting destination for timeless beach days, as well as for swimming, sailing, canoeing and water sports, the riverside setting invites you to take to the water, whichever way you choose.
Shaldon also serves as the ideal starting point for scenic walks along the passing South West Coastal Path, as well as for reaching the nature trails and local forest walks.

Families staying here can also enjoy the local park and recreation ground, the 9-hole golf course, a day out at the local zoo and a picnic amongst the beautiful borders of the Homeyards Botanical Gardens. The annual Shaldon Regatta each August also promises bucket loads of family fun.

Shaldon village is easily accessible by water; with a frequent passenger ferry service to Teignmouth (from where trains offer links to Exeter, Plymouth & London). Visitors are also just 20 minute's driving distance from the lively delights and resort attractions of Torquay; so adventure or town amusement is never too far away!

The surrounding area is also awash with beautiful National Trust attractions, blue flag beaches, coastal tourist attractions and sport activity centres to enjoy, whatever the weather.
Nearby Dartmoor also offers a breath taking day out for walking, mountain biking, wild swimming, horse riding and extreme outdoor sports.

Reviews

A perfect holiday ~ we spent a fabulous week at Dolphin Cottage in August and found everything to be just as we would like for a relaxing family holiday with children. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well equipped, and perfectly located within the village. A big thank you to the Beaufoy family!Kerry, Cornwall - 1st August 2016
Excellent Cottage Holiday Have just got back from Dolphin Cottage and had a lovely stay. The cottage has everything you need including games, books, beach toys and lots of information on the cottage and area. We were very lucky with the weather and the children were in the sea most of the week. Shaldon is great for a typical English seaside holiday but with easy access to Teignmouth and other areas. We particularly liked the quiet location and the quick boat trip across to Teignmouth. The roads are a bit narrow but we soon got used to them and parking was never a problem. Having a lean-to conservatory was very useful for drying towels, swimwear etc and just dumping stuff after coming back from the beach.Cheltenham - 1st August 2016
Cosy cottage, pretty village, convenient for beaches/pubs/restaurants/boat trips, there's even a Poke Stop! Took my 2 daughters (aged 11 & 8) to Dolphin Cottage & we had a wonderful time. The cottage itself is really pretty, spotlessly clean, in a quaint little square just a 2 minute walk from the main front at Shaldon, Loads for us all to do in and around the area. We spent 5 nights there & didn't use the car once! SO much within walking distance or boat trip. There's WIFI in the cottage too, and phone signal is good in that area - there's even a Poke Stop up the road near The Ness if you have children who are addicted to Pokemon Go just now! The girls caught lots of sea/river type Pokemon. As others have warned, don't even try to get into Crown Square if you have a wide, large or estate car - getting out is fine but the angle you have to enter meant I bashed my 'big butt' Renault Megane - entirely my fault but there are easier spaces within walking distance higher up the hill - the owners explain well where to park on the email you get before your holiday. But don't let that put you off - the tiny streets in that area of Shaldon are its draw! Beautifully painted, thatched fisherman's cottages in sweet little shambles are a joy to amble through on your way to pick up a paper in the morning or mosey out for ice cream. Smuggler's tunnel is fun to walk through to the larger beach (which is sheltered, so good if it's breezy). The girls enjoyed rock pooling there. We caught the little ferry over from the smaller beach and explored Teignmouth - on the way back, watched fishermen cast their next into the estuary for Salmon. The locals are friendly and will involve children in the fun. There's a craft fair on the small green every Wednesday in the summer holidays, only a few minutes walk through the little streets. There's a large Morrisons over the bridge at Teignmouth too, so good to visit on your way in and stock up for the week. All in all we had a blast - thank you for sharing Dolphin Cottage with us,Beaufoys! - 1st July 2016
