Shaldon




How could you not want to live here?!

I would really love this to be the pathway to my home!






We're in Shaldon, which is situated across the River Teign from Teignmouth.

First stop...coffee and a snack at The Clipper Cafe...

I highly recommend this lovely cafe.

Clean, good food and good service.






That done,  a mooch along the river's edge, 

looking across to Teignmouth.







LOL..'Orsman'...somewhat apt....or maybe not...

he's the village butcher!


And just in case you fancy a quick trip across the Teign,

here are your ferry times:





Shaldon is an attractive little place; it even has a

Candlestick maker's abode...that is next to...

yes, of course...the butcher's and the baker's!





Spot the oddity... 




A little old Morris 1000.

I reckon it really belongs here:






Delightful...and in Devon!

What a delightful-deloverly tour of Shaldon, Sal! One of my favourite places, and the cafĂ© is good, isn't it? Went there for a breakfast last year (OK, it was a late breakfast!) I red that those modern 'beach huts' where the Morris 1000 is parked are around the same price as a 4-bed det. house (£250K)! The thatched cottage is a delight, provided you are under 5ft 2in tall as no doubt it will have low ceilings inside! But cosy in winter and cool in summer.
I now want to visit Shaldon again!
