We're just a short drive from the end of the M5 at Exeter. Simply follow signs for Teignmouth and cross the bridge over the river into the village of Shaldon. We're about 1 mile outside of the village. We are the perfect location to explore all that South Devon has to offer. All top local attractions, favourite beaches, and best Devon days out are within easy reach.
Arriving by car is easy, as we are located conveniently just 20 minutes from the end of the M5 and only 15 minutes from the A380 (via B3192).
If you are coming from North, Mid, or East Devon, or anywhere else east of Devon itself, you'll arrive at Devon Valley via Teignmouth. Simply head over the Shaldon Bridge and into the village. At the zebra crossing, bear sharply to the right to follow the main road round. Then, take the fork to the right (do not go up the hill). Follow along the lane for just under a mile. We're on your right hand side.
If you are coming from Plymouth or Cornwall, you'll likely arrive at Devon Valley via Newton Abbot. At the Penn Inn Roundabout, follow signs for Combeinteignhead. You'll go through the village of Netherton. Keep following signs for Shaldon - it's around 4 miles in total from Penn Inn to Devon Valley. We're on your left hand side.
