Teignmouth is situated just a couple of miles west of Dawlish, and is a bustling coastal town and port, standing at the mouth of the beautiful Teign estuary. In common with Dawlish, the town grew from a fishing port to become a fashionable resort. The port still operates today, and the arrival and departure of some sizeable ships is a wonderful sight to see, particularly when viewed from the delightful “Back Beach”.
Opposite Teignmouth, on the west side of the estuary mouth, is the picturesque village of Shaldon, where properties are highly sought after, particularly by yachtsman- indeed anyone who feels drawn by the allure of the sea. Shaldon and Teignmouth are connected by a pedestrian ferry and road bridge.
Teignmouth seafront features a long beach and pier with amusements. The beach on the estuary side (previously referred to as the “Back Beach”) overlooks the harbour and many small boat moorings. There are also views right up to the northern end of the estuary and beyond, and as far as Dartmoor.
The busy town is an interesting place in which to shop with a wide variety of offerings. There are banks, W.H. Smiths, chemists, grocers, choice of restaurants and cafes, numerous pubs etc. The back streets are indeed a charming way to browse individual shops, many of which are not part of a chain.
Places of worship include the Methodist church, Roman Catholic church, Church of England (Our Lady & St. Patrick), and Baptist church.
Secondary schools – Teignmouth Community College; and Trinity School (independent with preparatory and boarding facilities). Primary schools include Hazeldown school; Inverteign school; and the Catholic School of our Lady & St. Patrick.
"Best estate agent in Exeter! Cannot thank this whole team enough they have been amazing throughout the whole process of finding my property. Chris was friendly & professional when I met him at the property which they had just taken on that same day, they got me in to see it & we got sale agreed before it hit rightmove! I then had the pleasure of dealing with the lovely Karen who saw the sale go through from start to finish she was fab! Karen went above and beyond her job role keeping me updated almost daily, her calm & friendly manner made this whole process so much easier I felt I could ask her anything & nothing was to much. She dealt with both parties so professional & would always call me back when she would say and pass on all relevant info I needed to hear. I cannot thank you all enough! Highly recommend you all. "
