|Torquay 7 Miles|
Of all the places in the
that I’ve visited, my favourite has to be Shaldon.
Whether the journey is long or short depends on the state of the tide. But in either case it is always atmospheric; open to the weather and wonderful to be amongst the mass of other small boats that use the river.

Shaldon village consists of wonderful, picturesque houses; some dating as far back as 1620.
It has a village green where the game of Bowls has been played for centuries; gardens that offer tantalising glimpses of the sea and public house signs like The Ferryboat and The Clipper.
