We have had a lovely week and have very much enjoyed our stay at Harbour House. The house is beautifully presented and very well equipped. We never tired of the every changing tidal scenery.The Dyer Family - 22nd September 2017
Had a lovely week here in Shaldon. Cottage well equipped and lovely views. Thank you! Browns & Dunlops - 15th September 2017
I've enjoyed the views from this well placed house and appreciated the tools for cooking provided in the generous kitchen. In spite of the dire forecasts, we had good days on the Ness Beach, loved the Water Carnival on the River, and did a lot of walking. A very comfortable, welcoming house - thank you. Our 13th visit to Shaldon with Family, in different houses!The Hursts - 11th August 2017
Thank you so much, our stay has been amazing, we love Shaldon and it has become our favourite destination. The house is a real 'Home from Home' we have been so comfortable here and don't want to leave. The location is perfect. We have played on the beach just outside the house when tide out and it is ideal with the shallow water. The groceries were very much appreciated. We would love to come back next year and have enjoyed every minute of being here. Also have to mention how comfortable the beds are. Thank you again, suited all ages!Naomi (34) Ian (39) Ellie (4) Ethan (1) Ann (67) Ken (71) - 26th July 2017
Harbour House has been a wonderful base to explore South Devon. We really appreciated the groceries and detergents that gave us a great start to a holiday, before we found the local shops. Highly recommended!Lawless family - 6th July 2017
Thank you again for the use of the beautiful house we stayed in. I have recommended it to so many people, but I fear they may be disappointed if they try to get in to Harbour House this year, as it does seem very popular. The views of the Estuary, the peacefulness and tranquillity of the area. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable time spent with my family to celebrate our Golden Wedding. It also brought back many memories of when we holidayed at Shaldon for a number of years when our own Son, now aged 43, was a little one himself. Our Grandson was so excited going from room to room of the house, and the looking out at the views, that when he got home, apparently he told his Mammy and Daddy he wanted to go back to Nana and Bampa's house by the seaside.So be assured, we will be backJulie and Melvyn - 27th June 2017
We have all enjoyed our stay at Harbour House. It is in a lovely position, with lovely views, and ideal for visiting other areas in Devon. Some lovely little pubs in Shaldon and joined in with the local quiz night at The London Inn!! Came 4th! The Turner Family - 2nd June 2017
Thank you so much - we had such a comfortable four days here. Very well situated and everything we needed! We hope to return. Highly recommended! The Salter Family - 26th February 2017
What a wonderful place. I stayed here over Christmas and New year with my husband and my parents. It was a lovely surprise to find the house decorated ready for Christmas. We were very comfortable in this 'Home from Home' accommodation, which is in a fantastic position, offering fabulous views overlooking the River Teign (Binoculars were in constant use), Shaldon is a really lovely Village. We met Paul the Caretaker who was very friendly and helpful and although we did not meet the Housekeeper Sarah, I did speak to her and again she was very friendly and helpful. We also had the pleasure of meeting Sue from Discovery Holiday Homes, who was very friendly and welcoming. A relaxing holiday was had by all and we would definitely have no hesitation in recommending Harbour House as the perfect place to stay. Thank You so much Anne & Peter.Julie Brudenell, Cannock - 1st January 2017
As a last minute booking we couldn't have been more pleased with the service we received from sue to make booking easy. She went the extra mile. Thanks. The house is lovely, had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Ps the Clifford arms jazz night was great. Thanks for the advise Sue xxJo blount, Midlands - 1st November 2016
We have had a lovely week in this extremely comfortable home. It is spacious and very well equipped. The village itself was very pretty and we had a great time exploring the local area.
