About Carole Slack
We both grew up locally and after a spell living in West Sussex we returned to Devon. Gary is a health care director and Carole a teacher. We love the coast and enjoy walking, cycling, skiing and eating out! We had a motor boat and spent many happy hours pottering about on the river. Our two children grew up playing on the beach at Shaldon and went to the village primary school. While we were on secondment to the USA we valued our wonderful cottage even more on our regular visits home. We are now back in the UK and make regular visits to Shaldon a place close to our hearts. We are fortunate to have a wonderful local couple managing the cottage and maintaining it to the high standards that we started with.
Carole Slack purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Carole Slack chose Shaldon
We have always loved Shaldon and were delighted when this cottage on The Green came up for sale as this has always been our favourite location in the village. The cottage has been totally renovated very innovatively and tastefully, by two local people. Oyster Cottage is perfectly situated and due to the thoughtful reverse level design you can enjoy wonderful views of the green, the village, the sea and river, whilst relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. There are plenty of wonderful places to eat and drink in Shaldon, including the Clipper which is open all day and evening and is right on the beach, the wonderful Coffee Rush which serves Riverford Farm products is now incorporated within the Clifford Arms. You can walk up to Ode Cafe at the Ness, across the green to The London Inn which was completely renovated a few years ago, serves amazing food, and has a sunny pub garden or amble down to the Clipper Cafe right on the beach or up to Fore St. to enjoy a delicious meal or amazing coffee in The Clifford. We have spent many enjoyable evenings in Shaldon with friends while staying at the cottage ourselves. Shaldon is a quaint and unique seaside village with so much to offer.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are many wonderful things about staying at Oyster Cottage. The village green location is perfect as you are within walking distance of all the local facilities, shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs and just 50 metres to the beach and ferry to Teignmouth. You can easily pull up outside to load and unload. Plenty of parking located nearby. No need to use the car for the duration of your stay, unless you want to go further afield. It is a very bright and airy property and because of it's position the dual aspect views are fantastic. We have furnished it in a nautical style in keeping with the village ethos. We take great pride in maintaining the decor and furnishings so that it keeps it's "newly decorated" feel. It is a quirky mixture of old and modern and includes everything from WiFi to waste disposal to make staying there as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. After many successful years with lots of wonderful comments and reviews from our happy guests, the cottage has been spring cleaned and we are ready to welcome guests old and new to Oyster Cottage on The Green. We added even more refinements in 2018 including some decor items, but most exciting was the bathroom remodel. We now have a wonderfully spacious walk in shower, tastefully designed and decorated to fit in with the nautical and seaside theme throughout the cottage. In winter 2018/2019 we upgraded the kitchen flooring. For 2020 we put in new bunk bed mattresses and a new Bosche hob. Every winter we clean the carpets and refresh the paintwork. In 2021 we also regrouted and sealed the tiled kitchen counter.
