Beach Hut No.1 at Shaldon
The aptly named Beach Hut No.1 is no ordinary beach hut! This gorgeous, generously-spaced beachside studio is ideal for those in need of a traditional seaside break, but with an added injection of style and luxury.
In fact, Beach Hut No.1 is so stylish that it's attracted plenty of media coverage, including the TV shows Countryfile and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, as well as being voted one of the top ten beach huts by MailOnline Travel .
Sleeping up to four people in comfort, you'll find the luxurious hut nestled in the scenic South Devon village of Shaldon. Located at the mouth of the shimmering River Teign, your chic and unspoilt surroundings promise stunning views all year round, and are an ideal base for exploring the famed South West Coast Path.
Not that you'll feel very much like venturing out, once you've stepped inside your beautiful hut! Lovingly designed, and with plenty of nautical-inspired attention to detail throughout, you'll feel instantly welcome.
The immaculate décor, furnishings and styling are a perfect blend of traditional with modern, meaning you can relax and enjoy an authentic break beside the sea, whilst feeling cocooned in comfort and luxury.
Stretch out in the generous living area, amongst plump cushions on the comfy futon sofa - and if TV's not your thing, there's plenty of board games, books and even a Boules set to keep you occupied! By evening, switch on the underfloor heating to feel wonderfully cosy.
There's a well-equipped galley kitchen - complete with oven and hob set within a luxurious granite worktop - and a breakfast table and chairs for you to enjoy your seafaring feasts. Meanwhile, the opulent, marble-tiled shower room is perfect for post-beach freshening up.
Outside, the private terrace is a real sun-trap, and a perfect spot for picturesque catch-ups (drinks and nibbles optional!) Sit back and watch the world go by for a while, as you gaze along the beach and watch gentle waves lap at the shoreline.
Take a leisurely stroll into Shaldon itself if you fancy a change of pace, and to experience the traditional Devon way of life first-hand. There are plenty of independent shops, delicatessens and cosy eateries to while away your holiday time in, along with a friendly local community.
Slightly further afield, the lively town of Teignmouth is a mere 5 minute ferry ride away, with its long sandy beach and wide selection of watersports to indulge in. Torquay, Exeter and Dartmoor National Park are also within easy reach by car.
So if you do like to be beside the seaside, but you also hanker after the finer things in life, a stay at Beach Hut No.1 will fulfil your every dream. Be warned, though - you're unlikely to want to leave!

Tried and tested
"What a gem of a place! The beach hut itself is gorgeous. Cosy, stylish and perfectly situated in the heart of the village. It was immaculately clean with all the bits and bobs you need for a self catering stay. The outside space was perfect whether you are watching the boats pootle along or kicking back with a glass of wine and nibbles! It's just so relaxing! The Clipper Cafe next door is fab with a great menu and atmosphere and there are plenty of options just a short walk away including a local butcher and bakery. What more could you want?! A real find, we can't wait to go back."
"The pictures (however amazing) don't do this place justice! The location, the hut, the view was all just perfect! The little touches like fresh fruit and biscuits on arrival was nice to see. The tea and coffee selection was also great. Would recommend anyone to stay here to experience how lovely the beach hut is!! Anthony responds very quickly to any queries and recommendations should you need. The staff in the cafe next door are lovely and everyone is super friendly! Will definitely book in the future."
"We loved our romantic stay at this super gorgeous bolt hole. All the furnishings were of a high quality and the place spotless. So much to do in the area. Thank you. We will definitely be back. "
