We really liked this B&B! Shaldon is a 20 minute walk into Teignmouth town itself. The walk is lovely and crosses the harbor which is also interesting and has lots going on.

The B&B is very welcoming and everything feels fresh and updated. The bathroom appeared to be quite new and was a good size with lots of natural light. The bedroom was also well proportioned with plenty of storage space and we loved the fact that the windows could be opened to let in all that fresh sea air!

We particularly liked the fact that someone noticed we were drinking wine in our room using the water glasses provided so the next day when we arrived back there were a couple of crystal glasses on the counter! These small details make guests feel welcome.

Linda and her family are very flexible and offer guests a wide array of choices for their breakfasts. The entire feel of the place is warm, friendly and very relaxed.

There is parking out front for guests which, as North Americans, we found quite tight and a bit of a challenge but people tend to be fairly patient while one manoeuvres around.

We would absolutely stay at Potters Mooring next time we visit Teignmouth.

Room Tip: The back rooms look out over a pleasant courtyard.

My Husband and I stayed in this B&B on Saturday 8th Feb 2014, and loved it !

We found room no. 5 to be clean, pleasant and cosy. Positioned at the top of the house, via two short flights of stairs (no problem for us as we are both fit and healthy), our room had a good size tv, a very comfortable bed and a nice view of the estuary.

The shower pressure was a little temperamental, but only slightly so, not enough to be of concern. The bathroom was also nice and clean.

The only comment about this room that could be considered a negative, is that there are beams that those over 6ft will need to stoop under. I am nearly 5ft 10" and it was okay for me, but my husband is 6ft 3" and had to be aware of it.

The hostess Linda, was welcoming and polite, the house was very clean and cosy and in a great location. Shaldon is a sweet little village and we loved it.

Breakfast was lovely and again Linda was very attentive.

As for an evening meal, we dinned in The London Inn, directly next door to the B&B, and it was superb; the ambience and the meal. Reasonably priced too.

This a great B&B, and we will definitely book again.

Room Tip: Room 5 was great. Quiet, clean and comfy.

Stayed here for a 2 night weekend break at the beginning of Feb. We were lucky to be allocated one of the cottages and couldn't fault it. It was well equipped with a good choice of teas/coffee etc.It was great to be able to relax in the evening in the lounge, the bathroom was clean and the bedroom a good size with plenty of storage.Breakfast in the main house was well cooked with plenty of choice-the coffee was particularly good. the situation was ideal for an early morning walk Local restaurants offered comprehensive menus but the local fish and chips were only adequate.Yes parking is tight but manageable with care and patience, but probably better to leave the Rolls Royce at home!Would definitely recommend.

Sheldon is a lovely village and fortunately had been protected from the floods by its position and their flood diffences. The weather was awful but everything is close and there is a brilliant pub with great food and dog friendly next door.They also have good real ales as do many of the pubs in the village.
Potters Mooring is a great old house with bags of character and a beautiful panelled dining room. It is very friendly and very clean with everything you could want. There is even a dishwasher in the cottage. The breakfast is delicious and the food quality is excellent with locally sourced ingredients. The hosts are pleasant friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage as we had our dog with us. It gave us more room and was very comfortable.

We went for a short break using a KGB voucher and were not disappointed. The room, breakfast and welcome were all fabulous and the B & B is right next to a lovely restaurant (The London Inn) and just down the road from several pubs. Parking is a bit tight but worth it. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We had a courtyard room with it's own lounge and kitchen area. Lovely!

My wife and I stayed for two nights. We would have loved it to have been longer. The location suited us perfectly. The village provided everything necessary in the way of shops and a nice choice of pubs all in a beautiful setting. The hotel was comfortable and clean and the room contained an impressive selection of toiletries and drinks. The breakfast was great and there was a good choice available and the hosts did their utmost to make sure that it was all as you wanted. The reception given and the friendliness of the hosts throughout our stay was the sort that makes a short break so much more special. We returned home just a short while ago and we are already trying to work out when we will be able to return. Brilliant.

Stayed one night with group of friends, very comfortable, lovely spotlessly clean room, great hosts, very helpful, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was fab, plenty of choice and friendly service.
Yes, parking is tight, but it's there so that's a plus, follow guidance from hosts and you can get in and out, no major issue.
Would definitely stay again, and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Room at front with bay window, nice size, and good view of the green.
