This is the first of several blogs I will be doing on my home town of Teignmouth, S Devon. Do you fancy a holiday here, if so you could certainly do a lot worse than here in this beachside holiday cottage.Sue and I took a slow stroll around the town then the river beach and sea front.I obviously had to make a couple of breather stops but got there in the end (which pleased me lots).On our way we noticed a few nice holiday lets and several nice cottages and flats to buy too, so we will start with this one right on the back river beach, If you can read the first picture it says it sleeps 6-8 people, is fully equipped and is open all year.( Before I go futher I must add I dont know who owns this).As far as the location is concerned it would be very difficult to beat, right on the back beach. This would be ideal for the kids (gently sloping beach) also boating and fishing. The town centre is 500 yards away and the sea front itself is only 250 yds away.

Below is the property offered for hire as in the advert, the one with the balcony, as described its right on the beach. (Tel 01626-776712).
This is the view from the front door, looking right toward the docks and Shaldon bridge.(below)
Looking back from along the beach, the landing platform I'm leaning on, was the Shaldon to Teignmouth passenger ferry ramp (60 years old and is still a stand by) Above.
Above, the whole beach area.
Looking from the front door across to the lovely village of shaldon, the bridge is in the far distance. On big spring tides the water comes to within a foot or two of the steps.
The whole back river beach taken from the "Ship Inn" public house, the house is in the right hand corner, (with the balcony).
This lovely little lane leads through to the beach where this cottage is situated.Turn left at the end for the town 400 yds, and two pubs 120 and 250 yds.
Joke of the day.
A man walks up to the ticket desk in the airport , the girl asks "can I help you", "yes I want a return ticket please" he says, "where to"asks the agent, Why straight back here of course.
