Guest Blog Post - Teignbridge Council

As you drive down the hill into Teignmouth and see the wide expanse of sea which flows into the River Teign estuary you realise what an unspoilt town it is. With its narrow streets and clusters of cottages together with the Victorian and Georgian properties on the seafront you can imagine how life was hundreds of years ago. If you visit the Teign Heritage Centre opposite the railway station it has lots of fascinating Teignmouth history including the information about the bombing of it in the last world war.

There are two very different beaches to walk along or stay a while. The Back River Beach always has people busy with their boats, children fishing or others sitting and enjoying a drink from one of the pubs which backs onto the beach. There is also the ferry to transport you across the river to the lovely village of Shaldon.

If you enjoy walking, there is the Eastcliff Park at the rear of the Eastcliff car park. A lovely place for a picnic and for children to play. If you are feeling more energetic, take the lower path along the coast to Dawlish. Half way along is a delightful café where you can sit and enjoy a refreshment before continuing your journey.

For families, there is an award winning play park right on the seafront with safe access to the skate park and the beach. Of course you cannot leave without visiting the old fashioned pier with some original one armed bandits and sitting enjoying a fresh crab sandwich while watching the tide roll in.

All in all Teignmouth is a modern but traditional place for a seaside holiday with great transport links to surrounding areas, where you never run out of ideas as to where to go or what to do.
