A lovely old cottage, thoughtfully modernised but still with the feeling of age about it. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ We were very happy with the size of the property, giving you the feeling of space but keeping to the sense of being in a cottage. Loved the kitchen and dining room on the lower level - lots of space and modern. The bedrooms were comfortable with some period features such as fireplaces. The lounge was adequate and although at the front of the cottage by the road, it was quiet due to the very thick walls of the building. Garden patio was attractive but due to some rain and time of year, we did not sit out there. We would recommend this as a comfortable, well equipped cottage and would stay again.The Chesney Family - 29th October 2018

Very nice house with a lovely garden and lots of good equipment, games etc, plus a nice conservatory, ( many) bathrooms and kitchen. Handy location 5 minutes from bakery, beach and cafes and great to have a parking space in Shaldon.Mrs Kate Griffin - 9th July 2018
Great location, beautiful property and very welcoming.Mrs Linda Myers (Home Away) - 29th December 2017
We had a great stay. The cottage was very comfortable with so many loos (5)! The bedrooms are lovely as is the kitchen and sitting room. Slightly surprised there wasn't a dishwasher but you need a drainer for the sink- we had to buy one. A microwave would be handy too.Sarah, Putney - 1st August 2016
Ideal location.lots of rooms and loos.comfortable and spotless. just like the pictures.would return.Michael and Mary P, Burnham on CROUCH Essex - 1st April 2016
A lovely house in a beautiful village. Everything is as it is described, with good basic supplies. I'd highly recommend this location and house. Shaldon itself is also great, and the large table in the house was perfect for doing jigsaws!Sarah B, UK - 1st September 2015
A good property in a great location. The village of Shaldon has all you want for a holiday and all of South Devon is within an easy drive. The cottage itself needs a little bit of work doing to it both inside and out.David Rose from Miskin - 1st July 2015
The house is an excellent size for up to 6 people, with a very useful extra downstairs living area, and plenty of bathrooms. The location is good, short walk to the sea front and the village. It is generally well equipped, although it would benefit from a bigger/extra fridge and a double oven / microwave. The landlords are hard to get hold off, but once you do quite helpful. Overall I would recommend this property and the area of Shaldon.A previous customer - 1st July 2015
Our stay at Palm Cottage was a truly enjoyable experience. We used the house as a base to meet up and entertain friends and family while on holiday. The kitchen and house is equipped with all mod cons and has great entertaining space. The house has everything to make you feel at home on holiday, be it toys for children or boardgames to play on quiet evenings in.We enjoyed our stay and will likely return next year. There is a small parking space to the rear but ample for a medium sized car. The garden is nicely set out, with a apple tree in full blossom while we were there. We had a small problem when arriving, however this was put right by the owner within hours. We appreciated the period features of this Georgian house, and would recommend Shaldon Palm Cottage.Jonathon, Cornwall - 1st May 2015
Cottage a lovely, practical house for a family holiday,grandchildren loved the wii games in between visiting Teignmouth skate park, water and play park and also accessing it by ferry! Cottage could have done with a microwave although we are a family who like to cook conventualy. Also a wardrobe is needed in the second floor double bedroom and the shower is a bit archaic over a grid and a curtain around it. Waste paper bins needed in rooms too. However we would love to come againsally hinchliffe, suffolk but was born in Devon - 1st August 2014

5* Stars ~ Beautiful cottage in a beautiful village. Location is great and all essentials are within walking distance. Only slight grumble is that we had to make the beds up when we arrived. Not something you want to do at the end of a long journey.Birch Family, Gloucester - 1st March 2014
