Driftwood was a lovely holiday cottage, very clean and in a lovely position for the beach. Also had lovely outside space and garden furniture

Absolutely wonderful week at Driftwood Cottage. The accommodation was perfect - large kitchen diner on the top floor with incredible views, my husband and I were on the middle floor with our two children (who had a bedroom each) and my Mother was on the ground floor with her own shower room and a bit of privacy! Property was very clean and had all the things you would need for a week’s stay. Loved the little touches - I’d forgotten my daughter’s bedtime books but needn’t have worried as the bookshelf full of children’s stories would’ve kept her occupied for 52 weeks. Huge choice of DVDs and Now TV was also fantastic. Shaldon is a very pretty town - enjoyed the ferry over to Teignmouth and also the local zoo. The wonderful Babbacombe Model Village was a short drive away, as was the Exe Cycle Trail. Would undoubtedly return - wonderful!

This property was also on Air B&B. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to find out from the owners that the property was also registered with you. Your staff are charming efficient and helpful. My house was recently burned down and with it my passport which was required by Air B&B. It began to be a living nightmare trying to book. There was no provision for such a circumstance and no way of speaking to anyone, which is what you need in such a situation. Especially as Christmas was approaching and all the properties were getting booked. Since the fire, I no longer have the use of my family home and with my granddaughter coming from Iceland to spend Christmas with us, it was vital to secure a rental property. We had the loveliest Christmas with some family friends who own a farm only 15 minutes drive from the cottage so it was perfect. We love your agency and God forbid that you should ever be eclipsed by the problematic and dehumanised Air B&B. There is simply no comparison with the service you provide. Thank you very much.

Driftwood Cottage has been perfect for us. We loved the views and the airiness upstairs. The cottage was very well equipped - just what we needed after a long journey. We loved Shaldon and used the very good local shops - long may they last! Trip on the ferry and Teignmouth was fun and it was the post-wedding get-together and swim on Ness Beach. Thank you!

We fancied a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of family life. Shaldon has been the perfect place and Driftwood has fitted the bill perfectly. The sun shone most of the time. So we were able to explore Shaldon, Teignmouth and Dawlish. We had a great walk along to Ness beach via the tunnel and lunch at The Clipper (delicious and v. reasonable). A real find was jack sprats in Dawlish. Huge men for light bites and full on lunch. Also, 26 in Teignmouth for coffee/cakes/lunch.We will be back!

Thank you so much! Incredible stay: walking on the red cliffs; thinking that the foliage on the cliffs was reainforest-like and subsequently realising there were real monkeys there!!! Seeing my first pub-with-a-carpet. Incredible comfort of kitchen and beds also agreeable. Would heavily recommend the zoo to all those also like monkeys.

Lovely cottage away from it all in a lovely village but with a decent pub nearby. Spacious open plan kitchen area makes good use of the space. The house was well equipped and clean. The garden space is located down a small path away from the property, something to consider if you have a baby and no baby monitor. All in all a great place for a family break.

Just spent a lovely week away in Devon. We have family living in Teignmouth so visited often but never stayed in Shaldon.

Had the best New Year at Driftwood Cottage! Really spacious (7 adults staying), really clean, well equipped, cosy, and the owners Rosie and Greg had left us a bottle of wine and some chocolate biscuits which went down very well! The cottage itself couldn't be in a better location- a couple of minutes to the centre of Shaldon and the beach, and Shaldon itself is the perfect Devon village, really quaint but loads of pubs and cafes and of course the beach. Also walking distance over to Teignmouth (not as lovely as Shaldon but bigger and has the pier and Crazy Golf and more restaurants & bars). They had also given us some great recommendations. Everything was wonderful and would definitely come back, although only thing to note is that parking can be a little tricky as only one covered free space, although they do very helpfully list alternatives. Can't fault the cottage or Shaldon!

Arrival in Shaldon after hours motorway driving and parking. Too many people wanted to join us. Entered the place of Driftwood and commenced a week of fun and for us adventure. Saturday exploring Shaldon, quaint and picturesque with fhatched roofs and very friendly people, loved all the terraced houses with pretty gardens- then Blues night at the Shipwight Arms- great fun.

The house was lovely, clean and well appointed. The hosts even went and bought us a high chair for our 9 month old son which was very thoughtful. Parking was not a major problem for us.
