We wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this riverside house. It's unusual setting right next to the water creates an immediate sense of holiday and relaxation. Being off the beaten track, there was a far way to carry our luggage. Peaceful and traffic-less, it is perfect for quiet rest, but there is no feeling of isolation due to the delightful activity on the estuary. We watched fishermen, cocklers, canoeists, paddle boarders, hikers, dog walkers, swimmers, jet skiers, sailors and rowing boats, but at no point did it feel either too busy or overlooked. By evening the activity would come to an end and we'd be left with beautiful sunsets and fantastic birdwatching opportunities. The house has been equipped in a thoughtful, generous and comfortable way and we felt instantly at home. We were lucky to have beautiful sunshine, but even in the most rotten weather this would be a wonderful place to be; the view is endlessly captivating.
Our host Judy, was warm, friendly, welcoming and made us feel very at ease. She was attentive without being intrusive.
The countryside is beautiful, and there is a lot to explore and enjoy. Without straying far at all, Shaldon and Teignmouth are fun, lively and interesting places to be. We felt very spoiled to have found such a gem of a place and are, without question, keen to go back.
