Sunshine Cottage is a former fisherman’s terrace cottage in the seaside town of Teignmouth. This cottage sleeps four people and has two bedrooms, consisting of one double and one adult bunk, along with a shower room.

Sunshine Cottage is a lovely base for a small family with plenty to see and do in the area.
This cosy, character terraced holiday home was once a fisherman’s cottage and is located on a slipway down to Back Beach, in the popular coastal resort of Teignmouth. A lovely haven for a traditional seaside holiday, ideal for a small family or group of friends. Take a few paces up from Back Beach, step through the front door and you’re ready to relax in front of the TV in this comfy fisherman’s sitting room, complete with a foldaway dining table and chairs for a meal in. From the galley kitchen at the rear there is a door leading to the courtyard with steps up to a decked area with striking harbour views, making it a fabulous place to take a refreshing breakfast in the sunshine of south Devon’s traditional seaside resort. There are two bedrooms, a double with bay window and views over the harbour and up the River Teign, plus a bunk room large enough for adults, but ideal for children. The cottage is so handy for town, where you will find plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants in this busy seaside resort. There are many family activities to enjoy as well, including an outdoor swimming pool, skate park, adventure golf and two miles of sandy beaches. Wander along the splendid promenade to the working port on the river side of town, where will see plenty of ships coming and going in this fast-flowing estuary current. Looking across the River Teign you see the charming small regency town of Shaldon, home to the Shaldon Wildlife Trust's breeding centre for rare mammals, along with the well-known beach at Ness Cove, reached through a genuine smugglers' tunnel. Down the coast is the English Riviera, with its micro-climate, tall palm trees, well laid-out municipal gardens and large promenade, lined with ice cream shops and cafes. Torquay is the birthplace of Agatha Christie and so there are plenty of historic reminders of the author, plus this seaside town also provided the inspiration for the classic British comedy Fawlty Towers. Paignton, which has a fabulous zoo and a steam train taking you to the River Dart, is also another day's outing. There’s plenty to see and do whilst staying at this charming cottage.
On the South Devon Coast, lying on the north bank of the Teign estuary, Teignmouth is a large seaside town with long sandy beaches, pretty Georgian buildings and great facilities. Take a stroll along the Victorian Pier, visit the lido with heated outdoor pool, show your skills at the skate park or relax at the Town Beach. Take a stroll along Teignmouth River Beach then eat at one of the many restaurants with many specialising in locally caught fish all washed down with local craft beers and real ales. Time your trip to the summer carnival, Septembers Food Festival or Novembers Jazz Festival. Visit the Shaldon Wildlife Trust across the estuary and take in the castle and botanical gardens at the same time, Eastcliff Park for a beautiful walk with clifftop views, have a stroll through the Arts Quarter or take in some history at the museum.
