Russett Cottage, Devon

Fancy a trip to the seaside?! We now have a cottage in Devon.
Russett Cottage is a mid terraced thatched cottage in the pretty village of Stokeinteignhead nestled in a sheltered valley near the sea in South Devon. Just over a mile from the beach at Maidencombe and from the mouth of the River Teign estuary at Shaldon. The property is spacious and has been furnished and decorated to a very good standard.

The local pub, dating back to the 17th century is a 2 minute stroll from the cottage and serves good food and real ales. Musicians night on a Tuesday is very popular. There is a well stocked community shop just across the road. There are many walks from the cottage – including the nearby South West Coastal Path – and the Teign and Exe estuaries are a great place for bird watching and nature lovers.

Teignmouth

Beach huts

Situated at the mouth of the Teign estuary on the edge of the English Riviera and Torbay, nearby Shaldon is a picturesque fishing village with colourful cottages overlooking the village bowling green. By way of contrast look out for Shaldon’s iconic ‘posh’ beach huts. Visit the award winning Ness beach by walking through the “Smugglers Tunnel”or stroll around the village and visit Shaldon Zoo and Homeyards Botanical Gardens. Teignmouth is only 3 miles away, with many shops, a Victorian pier and theatre. The town of Newton Abbot (4 miles) has a racecourse, a market on a Saturday and a local farmers market on a Tuesday.

Other attractions nearby include the Dartmouth Steam Railway and boat trip back up the river to Totnes. The Torquay area has a lot of all weather attractions including Living Coasts, where penguins wander freely and a theatre open all year. Both Dartmoor National Park and Exeter are 20 minutes’ drive and The Jurassic World Heritage Coast together with many National Trust properties are within an hours drive. Enjoy freshly caught fish and seafood from Brixham and an abundance of excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants in the area.
