Wandering along the narrow, winding streets of the tiny south Devon waterside village of Shaldon, past the bowling green and rows of thatched cottages, you wouldn't bat an eyelid if a horse-drawn carriage rolled past, or a lady swept by in Georgian dress. It seems to be the seaside village that time forgot… well, almost. Shaldon has been hailed as the “new Salcombe” but with easier access from the M5, and better road and rail links, many are favouring this idyllic location over traditional hotspots to own their very own holiday property.
Shaldon doesn’t simply offer a stunning coastal location. The village is peppered with independent shops, award-winning restaurants and waterside pubs, all offering fresh, locally sourced food and drink. When you consider that other Devon gems, such as Torquay, Exeter, Dartmoor and the South Hams, are all but a short trip away, it soon becomes clear why this small village has become a buzzword with trendsetters and celebs alike.
And now, Coast View, Shaldon has something very special to offer those searching for the perfect holiday home escape. The multi-£million transformation of the park is creating holiday homes that boast some of the finest views in the South West, taking in nearly 45 miles of Jurassic coast. And it has caught the eye of acclaimed Shaldon chef and restaurateur, Tim Bouget, who has announced that Coast View is the destination for the launch his new brand, ODE&Co, in 2016. Tim already runs Michelin-recommended restaurant, ODE Dining, and award-winning Café Ode; both of which are established parts of village life.
Tim’s new brand, ODE&Co, will form the heart of Coast View’s outstanding new facility, which will house the new reception, indoor swimming pool, fitness suite and spa facilities.
The holiday home developments at Coast View provide superb private plots, all with private parking and raised decks, which overlook Shaldon and the coast beyond. The show homes have been thoughtfully designed, with high-spec fixtures and fittings as standard, and cater for all you could desire from a second home. These new holiday homes range from £90,000 to £325,000 to suit all tastes and budgets.
Buy-to-Let options are offered through 5 star letting partners Blue Chip holidays and Coast View.
