Imagine a place where you feel perfectly at home and at the same time, it’s like you’re on holiday, every day.
If you love Devon as much as we do and your dream has always been to live by the sea, the classic British seaside town of Teignmouth could be your ideal landing place.
Enjoying the most stunning stretch of shoreline on the south Devonshire coast, close to everything and far from ordinary, our exclusive apartments at The Landings are right in the heart of it all. Literally surrounded by golden beaches on both sides, you can swim, paddle or dawdle with the dog pretty much wherever and whenever the mood takes you.
Main Beach is a luxuriously long expanse of sugary-soft sand, stretching for almost two miles. There’s so much open space it rarely gets crowded, even during the summer. River Beach is a romantic spot where you can watch the fishing boats bobbing daintily up and down with the tide. At sunset, seeing them silhouetted against the backdrop of the Upper Teign with Dartmoor beyond is simply breathtaking. And if you prefer a dip without getting sand between your toes there’s always the Lido, the town’s open-air, heated pool set in a beautiful location overlooking the sea.
One of Devon’s oldest seaside towns, its picturesque period properties, mingled with the candy-coloured beach huts and blue and white deckchairs lining the promenade whisk you back in time. It’s full of nostalgic charm; from the traditional, Victorian Grand Pier with its retro penny slot machines, to the historical harbour, which has been a bustling trading port for over three hundred years.
Lush Devonshire countryside wraps all the way around Teignmouth and there’s plenty of open space within the town too. The Den, a large Green Flag award park spanning two miles along the promenade, is a real focal point of the town and home to a whole host of entertainments from a bowling green, pavilion with cinema, children’s play area, crazy golf, skate park and is a venue for regular carnivals and festivals. Set back from the seafront, atop the red cliffs overlooking the sea, you’ll find the historic Eastcliff Park. It’s just made for meandering and exploring — discover such delights as a sub-tropical garden, winding pathways and huge, beautiful rhododendrons.
Teignmouth is fast-gaining a reputation as a foodie destination, and with aptly-named restaurants like The Oystercatcher’s Cafe and The Crab Shack, along with its world-renowned mussel and oyster beds, you can guess that fresh, locally caught seafood is the town’s speciality. There’s a thriving cafe culture here too; great for watching the world, and the people, go by. The best spot for this is the pedestrianised area ‘The Triangle’ that’s full of cafes, delis and lots of little interesting shops to mooch about in.
If you like walking, you can take the Railway Walk to Dawlish, or the Templer Way — the trail between the quarries at Haytor on Dartmoor and Teignmouth docks is said to be one of the most scenic footpaths in South Devon. If you like to walk on the wild side, living on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, gives you access to 368 square miles of moorland. And being on the South West Coast Path, England’s longest waymarked, long-distance footpath, you can wander to your heart’s content.
Hop on one of the quaint black and white boats of the foot ferry, in operation since the 13th century, from River Beach across to the charming village of Shaldon. Here you’ll find a delightful mix of shops, craft stalls and eateries, as well as an 18-hole moorland links golf course. Golfers are spoilt for choice here — there’s also Teignmouth Golf Club, designed by the legendary Dr Alister MacKenzie. Set 800 feet above sea level, it commands spectacular views across the surrounding moorland, the estuary and sea.
It’s easy to forget you’re not a tourist living in a place like this. From a practical point of view the town and surrounding area is well-served for schools, supermarkets and transport connections. Located on the main South West train line, Teignmouth is an easy journey from London, along the most spectacular coastal train route in the country. In less than half an hour you can be in either Exeter or Torquay, by car or train, with Plymouth under an hour away.
