Shaldon is a quintessential South Devon village which nestles quietly on the south bank of the River Teign Estuary. With Georgian architecture at its very heart, mixed with pretty thatched cottages, meandering lanes, donkey-wide streets, quaint shops and traditional village green, it still retains the charm of its fishing village heritage.

In recent years, Shaldon has evolved into a somewhat sophisticated hot-spot for gourmet diners with its several fine restaurants, excellent cafés and coffee shops. The local chefs source an abundance of superb local produce for their menus and fine local wines may be found which are produced by a nearby vineyard.

Shaldon is served by regular bus and taxi services and Teignmouth train station connects to London Paddington. A small open passenger ferry operates from the beach and transports passengers the short distance across the estuary to Teignmouth. This historic passenger ferry is one of the oldest in England. The village also boasts a GP’s surgery, post office, small independent shops including an award winning butchers, an artisan bakery, grocers and pharmacy.  The many attractions include Ness beach which is accessed by a smugglers tunnel, family friendly small mammal zoo, water sports, sailing, rowing, coastal walks, Shaldon cliffs, pitch and putt course;  the Botanical gardens provide beautiful views across the Teign Estuary and Lyme Bay. The Shaldon Regatta is held annually and runs for 9 days in August and is thought to be one of the oldest in England. These are just some of the things that Shaldon village has to offer to residents and visitors alike.
