                          Shaldon is a pretty, unspoilt village which is situated on the Teign estuary. A ferry runs a frequent service to the larger resort town of Teignmouth, which on the opposite side of the estuary.

                          Shaldon has a long clean sandy beach, grocery shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and also a Zoo! Shaldon Zoo is located in beautiful woodland and you will be able to see a variety animals, including some smaller more endangered species.

                          It still retains much of it's old world charm, with many thatched cottages and a typical village green. It has a thriving community and several local families are still linked to the fishing industry.

                          It is quintessentially English especially when you see the locals playing bowls on the small central village green. You could even think the Spanish Armada may be appearing off the Ness at any moment! The green, as you would expect is overlooked by the local pub and each Wednesday in the season there is a local gift market, the 1785 day! People dress up in Georgian costume and there are often entertainers, including local musicians.

                          The green is central to the Village and leading off from this you can explore further inland (but not too far) or walk to the water edge where at low and mid tide you can walk down the estuary. The estuary stretches across to Teignmouth its larger neighbour and can be reached by Ferry from the beach! The main channel is relatively deep water which is why you will see the occasional larger industrial boat moving up of down the far channel under guidance of the Shaldon and Teignmouth Pilot.

                          In 1909 the ferry moved into the modern era and installed an engine. No more oars and when the tide is in flood you may imagine they were relieved when fuel replaced muscle! ! The boats have been traditionally painted black and white for 300 years and remain this way today! Records show that a ferry has been operating since the 13th century! That’s before the Pilgrim Fathers reached their new home!

                          If you walk to the top of Shaldon, along the shore front and then narrow road, you will find the Shaldon Wildlife centre, which is a dedicated conservation “zoo”. This “Trust” is next to the public car park and this is the easiest place to park to reach the Ness beach.
