Inviting Family Retreat, near Shaldon (SALTHSBC)

This self-catering holiday retreat in Shaldon was awarded the prestigious Four Star Gold Self Catering rating by Enjoy England and perfectly accommodates families and groups of friends.

Salty House is an early 18th Century Grade II listed property in South Devon. Spacious and beautifully furnished, the house comfortably sleeps 8 people.

The first floor is made up of 4 bedrooms, 1 family bathroom and a family shower room.

Meanwhile, the ground floor boasts a cloakroom WC, a fully-equipped kitchen and stylish living area.

Wi-Fi access is available throughout the property.

A terrace featuring a table and chairs for 8 guests offsets the pretty flowered garden, with views over the River Teign, harbour and the moors.

Salty House is just 10 minutes' walk from Shaldon's Fore Street where you can enjoy the offerings of The Coffee Rush and Shaldon Bakery, before trying a spot of crabbing. The Yummy Shop sells scrummy ice-creams, jams, pickles and hampers.

Caf? Ode is nestled high up on 'The Ness' overlooking the bay and serves locally loved fish and chips. The fisherman's village is also home to four cosy pubs and plenty of shops.

The award-winning 'Ode Restaurant' (sister to Caf? Ode) is just a few steps from the property and run by Tim Bouget, a Michel Roux trained chef. Book in advance as they seat just 24 in their intimate front room setting!

Stomping ground to the Celts and Saxons, Shaldon offers a traditional coastal break. The Shaldon Regatta, taking place every August, is reputed to be the oldest in the UK. Guests can also take the oldest river crossing in England with the passenger ferry to Teignmouth.

The Ringmore riverside offers pretty walks, while the South West Coastal Path boasts beautiful treks. Other attractions include a 9-hole golf course, a zoo, National Trust properties, botanical gardens and stunning Dartmoor.

Children will love discovering the ancient smuggler's tunnel, the only way to access the famous Ness beach where you can enjoy BBQ's before the open sea.

Exeter and Totnes are not too far, and Torquay's delights are only a 20 minute drive away.

Check in / Check out

Standard check-in is 4pm and standard check-out is normally 10am on your day of departure. In some cases these times vary. Always check your booking confirmation paperwork for correct timings.


From Tavistock and the rivers Tavy and Tamar to the English Riviera of Torbay, and the nautical town of Dartmouth north across Dartmoor (with its famous miniature ponies) to the surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, there can be few counties in England that offer such a broad spectrum of experiences to the visitor. 

Located in the South Westerly reaches of England, Devon shares a southerly border with Cornwall, and an easterly border with Somerset and Dorset. To the north and south the Bristol and English channels provide miles of beautiful coastline, and numerous attractions to the county. 

Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty (5), National Parks (2) and many other parks and reserves make it very easy to get off the beaten track, but the cities of Plymouth and Exeter are as modern and vibrant as they come.

Inland are a number of country landscapes to explore; Tarka Country to the north, taking its name from a famous novel, offering the Tarka Trail; a fantastic cycle route through the beautiful country landscapes. Centrally, Dartmoor National Park is the largest open space in South England, and offers miles of rugged and wild moorland for keen walkers to explore.

Dartmoor Zoological Park is situated on the edge of the moor. The zoo is the inspiration behind a Hollywood film, and home to an impressive range of exotic animals. Along the south coast is the spectacular Jurrasic Coast World Heritage Site, reaching from Exmouth along into Dorset, and offering a spectacular coastline to discover.

Further south along the coast is the borough of Torbay, home to some of Devon’s most popular seaside resorts and tourist spots, and known as the English Riviera. Devon’s county town is the attractive city of Exeter, offering a mix of historical and modern architecture and culture. To the south is the University City of Plymouth, a historic port, and home to The Hoe, a popular public open space offering a range of attractions.   

Devon is the third biggest county in the UK by area, but it's quite easy to get around. In population, it is only the twelfth largest, so it's really not very crowded! Geographically and in spirit quite unlike the neighbouring counties, Devon is characterised by the granite structure that forms Dartmoor rising out of its distinctive red soil, and the very different Devonian rock structure underlying Exmoor. The Devonian geological period was actually named after Devon since it was here that these rocks were first studied. 

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
