So it’s been a busy few months here at the tropical destination of Shaldon, Devon. Not only have we have been busy with new faces joining the community of Coast View but we have had a superb new facility finally finished after 2 years of planning! The stunning new ODE & CO restaurant along with our flash new offices are open ready for the Summer flock of holiday makers. Boasting some of the best views of the bay – it is a prime spot with good views for the working day if we might say so ourselves!
Wood fired oven, driftwood seaside themes and the light open space, ODE is truly one not to miss whilst visiting us. Whether it be for a fancy coffee, a refreshing pint or a sour dough based pizza, rich with flavours – there is something for everyone! Now, I am not a huge pizza lover but I can tell you I have had one nearly every day since opening and that was about 2 weeks ago! Who needs the gym eh?
Coast View also has taken off with the sales of the beautiful holiday homes, Shaldon Retreat now has only one left! Those lucky lucky people who have snapped up the homes really are living the dream!
We have more developments due to start in the Winter months on the top fields of the park, getting closer and closer to being on cloud 9 – quite literally with how high up the park we are going!
The village really will be buzzing in the coming months. August is the best month to visit Shaldon in my opinion, with the carnivals, regattas, BBQs, street parties and much more you and the family will never be bored! The famous Water Carnival is Saturday 6th August this year. Watch as the community of Shaldon and Teignmouth come together to celebrate the area and where we all enjoy – the seaside! The homemade floats are full of colours and imagination boasting the local businesses, public services and the most random things stirring an echo of laughter over the beach (the most random you can think of, Shaldon will beat!)
I hear you say now, ‘it must be busy in Shaldon during the Summer months, why would we want to go there?’ I get that! But Shaldon has something for everyone during Summer. Don’t fancy joining in the events? Why not relax in one of the beach side pubs and take in the quaint village views along the estuary. Pretend you’re not in Devon but abroad, when the sun is shining and the blue waters sparkling it sure seems you are in the South of France!
So if you’re stuck on a Summer staycation in the UK come and join us in Shaldon and experience the memorable events of the local area and people of Devon. You won’t want to leave! Then… you can purchase one of our lodges – sorted!
