Dolphin Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Shaldon, Devon, England
Dolphin Cottage is a tiny, thatched, 17th Century, cob cottage, in the picturesque village of Shaldon.

It is in a quiet square, one minute's walk from the beach. There's a second beach which is about ten minute's walk away through the smugglers' tunnel!

Most of Shaldon village is flat and level, with easy access to the beach and shops. There are two steps down into the cottage and two other small steps inside. There are excellent shops providing most of what you need. There are plenty of pubs and cafes too, and a chip shop.

Downstairs there is a sitting room with sofa bed, and arm chairs, television with DVD player, and a living flame electric fire. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a washing machine and a dishwasher and a microwave.

The attractively tiled bathroom is also downstairs, and has a toilet, washbasin...
