SITUATION Salty Cottage enjoys an enviable position being "tucked away" within charming narrow streets, a stone's throw away from the local sandy beach, and village amenities. Shaldon has a strong sense of community and nestles beautifully between the sandy estuary beach and the pretty hills above. There are independent shops and cafes, a good selection of public houses and restaurants and a charming foot passenger ferry across to the seaside town of Teignmouth. Additional amenities include an Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated primary school, The Ness House Hotel and a bowling green. There is a well-supported annual regatta and water carnival as well as a rowing and sailing club. There is good walking on the south west coast path and the wonderful Ness Beach is accessed via a tunnel. The village even has a small zoo! Teignmouth is just over a mile away and has a lovely promenade, a theatre and a wide range of amenities as well as a mainline rail link to London Paddington.
DESCRIPTION The Salty is a beautiful cottage with stylish accommodation arranged over three levels that has been extensively and comprehensively refurbished by the current owners.
