Shaldon on the South Coast of Devon enjoys a unique summer Water Carnival for residents and visitors, held on the 1st Saturday in August each year. A fun-filled, family day of events that is now in it's 57th year.
We offer you the excitement and colour of a carnival plus fun on the water in the form of outstanding carnival floats made locally and teamed by different groups of locals. The colour and diversity of the dressed boats creates a wonderful view on the water, and huge efforts and amounts of time are volunteered in the run up to the Shaldon Water Carnival to get craft seaworthy and looking their best, making it a real ‘community’ event.

Absolutely amazing place to stay. The staff, park and everything was brilliant. The kids loved the whole place. Already booked for next year.
