About Golden Dawn

Golden Dawn sits in peaceful countryside in the friendly village of Stokeinteignhead, around a mile from the coast and a short walk from the thatched village pub, the Church House Inn. The spacious house with hot tub is detached and surrounded by private gardens, accommodating eight guests in four bedrooms, with a further two on a sofa-bed in the study if required. It is perfect if you have a big family or are on holiday with your extended family or friends.

Devon’s coastal towns and villages can feel crowded in summer but Stokeinteignhead is always quiet and peaceful. It is a great all-rounder holiday destination because there is something to keep everyone happy. If you love being outdoors and active, there are miles of beautiful beaches, coastal footpaths and cycle routes. If you like history and culture, there are stunning churches, well-curated local museums, country houses and romantic ruins. Foodies will undoubtedly be happy with the variety of delicious local goodies produced and sold in the region, including at Old Walls Vineyards near Teignmouth.

The picturesque village of Shaldon is about a mile away, and a pleasant walk or cycle along country lanes. It is across the River Teign from Teignmouth and has a lovely beach, golf course and several excellent pubs. On the way to Shaldon is Ness Cove with its infamous Smuggler's Tunnel, or take the ferry over to Teignmouth where there are more beaches, a pier, promenade, and a good variety of shops and amenities. Newton Abbot is also nearby, and there are lots of towns and villages dotted around Devon for you to discover.

The English Riviera starts just south of Stokeinteignhead, offering every more variety of beaches and entertainment. Staying somewhere so close means you can choose between fantastic beaches like Torquay, Torbay, and Paignton, as well as popular attractions such as Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, Dartmouth Steam Railway, Splashdown Waterpark, and the Babbacombe Cliff Railway that leads down to Oddicombe Beach.

The owners of Golden Dawn understand that the best self-catering cottage feels like a home-away-from-home, and is somewhere you can completely relax and enjoy every minute of your holiday. Whether you are travelling with friends, your kids, or bringing the grandparents and the dog, you will feel welcome.

Location (Devon)

Accommodation Comprises:

Golden Dawn is a large detached house surrounded by mature gardens. It has a traditional layout in an elevated location that means it has stunning countryside views.


  • The large living room is cosy and relaxing, with an 'L' shaped sofa, large television and solid fuel wood burner. The dual aspect windows look over the valley towards Stokeinteignhead village and let in lots of natural light. An alcove with shelving holds a good selection of board games for enjoying lazy screen-free evenings.
  • A separate dining room has a large oak dining table and chairs for eight people. The room has a wood burning stove for chilly winter nights, but also has French doors that open onto the terrace and patio, inviting the summer warmth in and extending the living and dining area.
  • A country-style kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for self-catering including an electric oven and stove. The Aga can be used in colder months both for cooking and providing extra warmth. There is also a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, and additional fridge (in addition to the large fridge/freezer in the kitchen) in a utility area.
  • A light and spacious king-sized bedroom has an en-suite with power shower, WC and handbasin.
  • There is a convenient cloakroom with WC and handbasin.


  • The master suite has a king-sized bed, television, ample storage and French doors that open onto a balcony with lovely views. The en-suite has a bath, WC and handbasin.
  • The first of the two twin-bedrooms also has an en-suite with bath, separate shower, WC and hand basin.
  • The second twin bedroom is dual aspect with views over both the valley and the village.
  • A study/second living room has a sofa which opens out to sleep two people, and a television. French doors open onto the balcony which enjoys the same fantastic views as the master suite.

Outside: A large deck area with hot tub has spectacular countryside views. The terraced garden has a small pond (covered with netting for safety), sheltered pergola with garden furniture for outdoor meals, and a lawn area. The driveway has space for three cars.
