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.
"Unfortunately I found myself in the position of having to put my late Mother's property on the market at the beginning of this year. It is always a very stressful time for close family, especially if you live in another country, and have never had to do it before! I was very nervous, apprehensive, and really did not know which way to turn. With the advice of my Mother's bank, and many close friends, four local Dawlish estate agents were suggested to me. I saw one, whom I knew was wrong from the word go, and then I met with Chris Parkes from Fraser Wheeler. This was the turning point! I had not only met an agency that I knew were sympathetic with the personal situation, but, were also very forward thinking and pro-active as far as a potential sale was concerned. I was so impressed and confident with our initial discussions and feedback, that I cancelled the following two agents' appointments the very next day. Fraser & Wheeler were absolutely wonderful, and took away a large part of the hassle that is usually involved with a property sale, and their follow up to detail was amazing. Within four days of the property going on the market, they had found a secure buyer for me. I would strongly recommend anyone who is selling a property in the Dawlish, Teignmouth, Starcross area to contact Fraser & Wheeler .... especially if you happen to be living outside the UK (or in another part of the country), and at a distance. They have the ability to make all the property selling wheels run so smoothly for you. A big Thank You to Fraser & Wheeler."
