The lane also leads to the idyllic riverside walkway which leads in turn to a large children's playground and football pitch.

Conveying a sedate and timeless quality from its authentic fisherman village charm, guests can easily picture the bygone age that made the area renowned for fishing, boat building and supporting the country through the zealous might of the industrial age.

Shaldon today is home to a 9-hole golf course, small zoo, lovely beaches and the Homeyards Botanical Gardens. In the August time the Shaldon Regatta offers a wonderful opportunity for coastal fans to descend here to enjoy this lively seaside spot.
