Shaldon

Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated on the mouth of the river Teign between Torquay and Teignmouth. It has a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. On a clear day, Portland Bill can even be seen despite being 50 miles away. A pretty village with two churches, a boutique, butcher, coffee shop and many conserved areas for all to enjoy.

Shaldon village

Lovely walk with our dog along the estuary into Shaldon village with a few shops/cafes. London Inn pub by the bowling green friendly pub with excellent beer and food (Best to book for Sunday lunch). If you don't like the Hi De Hi type holiday with amusements and cheap trinket shops then this is a place to visit

Very English Shaldon

A little hidden gem this village right on the seafront facing Teignmouth on the estuary, nice stylish shops and narrow streets with a bowling green and several nice pubs with good food.

Lovely pretty village, with a host of beautiful places to eat and drink. We tried the live music at the Ferryboat Inn, and had a lovely early evening looking out over the harbour from their beer garden. The shops were good quality, though during the off-season (October) I presume they have shorter opening hours (10-4 average) and some appeared closed. Everyone we met was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and refined.

Shaldon village life

Shaldon village hosts a variety of activities throughout the summer. There is a market on the village green in traditional costume every week and the well know water carnival where sand castle competitions and decorated boats abound. The highlight of the year has to be Shaldon Regatta, which takes place around the late summer bank holiday in August where everyone is welcome to enter and regatta boats are available if you don't have your own. Also five-a-side football, beach volleyball, swimming competitions and sandcastle competitions abound. Highly recommended.
