Shaldon is an idyllic little fishing village with quaint thatched cottages, period houses, contemporary homes and narrow winding streets situated at the mouth of the Teign estuary on the edge of the English Riviera and Torbay. It lies adjacent to the older village of Ringmore and both enjoy a delightfully warm microclimate, sheltered from the sea by the Ness, the imposing red sandstone headland that has been a welcome landmark of sailors for centuries.  At Shaldon, sit on the river beach and watch the world go by, if you're lucky you may see a dolphin or two, or visit the award-winning Ness beach by walking through 'Smugglers Tunnel'. Stroll around the village and visit Shaldon Zoo and Homeyards Botanical Gardens. Relax in one of the many pubs, award-winning cafés and restaurants.

Shaldon has a thriving local community and benefits from a good selection of local shops and services. Transport links are excellent with trains (from Teignmouth), buses and an historic black and white foot ferry that crosses the estuary daily between Teignmouth and Shaldon.

Enjoy a year round calendar of events including the famous Water Carnival and Regatta both in August, flower shows, fetes, art exhibitions, 1785 craft fairs, an international music festival in June and a fancy dress three-legged race on Boxing Day, to name but a few! There are plenty of leisure activities to enjoy including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing, golf, fishing, bowls, walking the South West Coast Path or the tidal Templer Way towards Dartmoor, and exploring the RSPB Nature Reserve at Labrador Bay by the Ness. Shop 200 yards, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
