About Hawks Cay

Hawks Cay is a heavenly slice of Devonian luxury. The interior designer owner has overseen the recent refurbishment of the three-storey property from top to bottom, giving it a contemporary New England seaside vibe that perfectly suits the location in the fishing village of Shaldon. Treat your family or friends to a self-catering stay by the coast in this wonderful holiday home that sleeps eight people in four bedrooms and is within a short walk of Shaldon beach, the River Teign, cafes, a bakery, shops, and the welcoming Shipwright Arms pub. It's a wonderfully relaxing place with lots to do in all seasons, especially if you enjoy being by or on the water.

Shaldon is a traditional fishing village at the mouth of the River Teign. It's just over the river from Teignmouth with a regular ferry service linking the two. There is plenty to keep everyone happily occupied during your holiday with local attractions, including Shaldon Zoo and a Pitch and Putt golf course with fantastic views. Spend lazy days at the beach, swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding, or hire a boat and explore along the river. It doesn't matter how old you are - walking through Smuggler's Tunnel to Ness Cove is always a thrill. Beautiful walks along the South West Coast Path and cycling through the Teign Valley will be another highlight of your stay, and you can't ignore the appeal of Dartmoor's dramatic landscape being so close.

The famous beaches of the English Riviera are a short drive south of Shaldon. There is always something to do in Torquay, from eating ice cream on the pier to a ride on the Big Wheel. Take the kids to Babbacombe Model Village or drive a few miles further to Paignton, where they can play happily for hours in the waterfront playground or go crabbing off the harbour walls. Other beaches to visit include Sidmouth, Dawlish, and Dawlish Warren, although you could easily stay within walking distance of the holiday house and never get bored.

Location (Devon)

Accommodation Comprises:

Hawks Cay is a charming holiday home with accommodation over three levels and finished to a flawless standard. The owner, an interior designer, has used a fresh New England coastal theme that suits the location beautifully.

Ground Floor:

  • Tiled living room furnished with comfortable seating, a huge 48-inch 3D TV with Freeview channels and a Blue Ray DVD player. The house has efficient central heating but the log burner adds that extra cosy touch in cold weather. Every room on the ground floor has underfloor heating.
  • Huge kitchen/diner with French doors into the courtyard garden and a massive skylight for extra natural light. The dining table has high-backed wicker chairs to encourage guests to linger as long as they like over meals, which are easily prepared in the superbly well-equipped kitchen. Appliances include an American-style fridge/freezer with an ice machine, a dishwasher, and a De Longhi Dolce Gusto coffee machine.
  • Laundry and cleaning facilities are discretely tucked away in the separate utility room.
  • Convenient cloakroom WC and handbasin.

First Floor:

  • Climb the stairs to the first floor where there are three gorgeous bedrooms and a family bathroom. All beds are made up for the arrival of guests, have a wall-mounted TV with a DVD player for lazy mornings (or tucking the kids in early), and a hairdryer.
  • Bedroom 1 has a king-sized bed and bedside tables with reading lights.
  • Bedroom 2 features a lovely double bed with bedside tables and reading lights.
  • Bedroom 3 has a flexible layout with a full-sized single bed and a folding trundle that turns the room from a single into a twin.
  • Soak in the tub or enjoy a hot shower in the spacious family bathroom.

Second Floor:

  • Retreat to the sanctuary of the master bedroom suite with a king-sized nickel bed and an ensuite with a deep bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: A sheltered courtyard garden has outdoor furniture for leisurely summer meals. There is covered off-street parking for one car.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. One well-behaved dog is welcome by arrangement - a small cleaning fee applies. Smoking is not permitted.
