“Charming fisherman's cottage”
Reviewed June 25, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Crabclaw Cottage is quaint and has all the mod-cons. The owners had left us scones, butter, jam, cheese and milk for us to use plus they had left the cottage stocked with sufficient tea & coffee, loo rolls etc so we only had to organise our meals - you don't often get that when self catering. The cottage is less than a 5 minutes walk from town and right near the back beach, location is great and apart from the seagulls, a very quiet area. Stayed for a long weekend with my husband and teenage daughter - we would definitely consider booking here again. We all slept well, a combination of fresh sea air and extremely comfortable beds! The cottage was clean and tidy. Pets if taken must remain downstairs in the property. The owners contacted us before our stay with directions etc and gave us their phone numbers should an emergency arise. Locally we ate at Fresco's Italian - you must book in advance - it is highly recommended. Lots of coffee shops in the town. Great play area on the seafront for those with children under 12.

We stayed at Crabclaw Cottage for Feb half term. The cottage is quaint with a lovely wood burner, good kitchen space and a breakfast bar to eat at with enough room for 3 people, the kitchen has all mod cons, there were plenty of clean towels and bed linen supplied. The bedrooms are comfortable as is the rest of the cottage. The stairs are on the steep side with low head room.
The only tiny negative is that the toilet and shower are at the back of the property on the ground floor, this was a bit of a long haul if you needed the toilet during the night, however as this is a very old property it is to be expected.
The owners of the cottage left us some milk, bread,wine and biscuits for our arrival we also found basic store cupboard ingredients and plenty of wood, kindle and firelighters for the fire.
Nearby there are lots of eating places,resturants and shops. For those that are staying a while there is a large Tesco at Newton Abbot or Sainsburys at Dawlish, the cottage is literally 20 walking paces to the waters edge. There is no allocated parking so we obtained a weekly parking ticket from Teignmouth Borough Council for a reasonable rate and parked in the car park nearby which due to the time of year had plenty of spaces. This is a great location and is central to local places of interest, eg Torquay, Dawlish, Dartmouth, Paignton etc. I can also recommend a trip to Babbacombe Cliff Lift, would also suggest Sheldon and the smugglers tunnel and beach.
Before we went we received excellent communication from the owners and they also rang to check everything was ok during our stay.
