The space
You can’t miss the Crab Shack Apartment on Teignmouth’s lively Back Beach, Devon. Directly adjacent to Shaldon Beach and close to Torbay, Exeter and Dartmoor, this luxury duplex apartment has been lovingly refurbished and interior designed with fun and comfort in mind. Calming blues, warm golds and trendy neutrals combine to create an atmospheric space that’s perfect for relaxing with the papers or chilling out after a long day at the beach. This idyllic seaside escape is the perfect getaway for foodies – you can order your meals from award-winning Crab Shack seafood restaurant downstairs to be served upstairs al fresco on your own private balcony, overlooking the beach. From kayaking, SUPing and scuba diving to coastal walks, boat trips and music festivals, there is plenty to do without needing to drive anywhere. Whether it’s dips at dawn or exploring Teignmouth trendy arts quarter, this is the holiday home you’ll be returning to again and again.

A space that’s perfect for celebratory dinners as it is for slow, peaceful mornings snuggling under the blankets, the Crab Shack Apartment is both restorative and invigorating: ready for the tempo you set for your holiday. The open plan living space on the first floor is divided into two distinct zones. A cosy seating area, complete with a hanging bubble chair as well two comfy sofas, is ideal for kicking back to watch a movie with a glass of wine in front of the woodburner (an honesty bar is provided). The dining area welcomes seamless inside-outside family living and opens out onto a private balcony with wonderful views out over the boats. Cook up a storm in the galley-style kitchen, which comes with a washer dryer, oven, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher and access to another large balcony area, or order food up from the Crab Shack, featured in the Times Top 30 Best Places to Eat by the Sea: Lobsters, Moules and Sunsets.

Three beautifully decorated bedrooms are on the second floor, each offering its own individual vibe. One has a double bed with an ensuite shower room featuring an uplifting vertical garden. The second provides a king bed, while the spacious third bedroom has a super-king and sea views to ensure dream-filled slumbers of sunsets and sandy beaches. A large family bathroom with bath, shower, toilet and wash basin provides space to wash away a salty beach day.

The Crab Shack Apartment offers easy seaside living, whether you’re playing in the sea or dozing with toes in the sand. After racing back to rinse off, enjoy the Crab Shack’s catch of the day under exploding skies. However tempting it is to stay put, explore the pretty family-friendly town of Teignmouth with its Victorian pier and a wealth of south Devon harbours, villages and attractions just a hop, skip and a jump away.

Where you’ll be

Devon, England, United Kingdom

Teignmouth’s charming Back Beach, home to the Crab Shack Apartment, is located on the estuary side of the town and has spectacular views looking towards Dartmoor, particularly at sunrise and sunset. Splash in the sea, go rock pooling or have a go at one of the many water sports on offer. Hire a boat for the day or take the small ferry across to Teignmouth’s hidden gem – Shaldon Beach. It’s just a hop, skip and a jump from the Crab Shack into Teignmouth – a lovely quaint old seaside town, which boasts a beautiful long promenade and pier. The seafront also has a children's play area, a skate park, a miniature golf course and a heated lido. The trendy art quarter is well worth a visit for a treasure trove of independent shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Teignmouth is also the gateway to a host of activities and places to explore for all ages. Sat on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, a wealth of hiking and exploration opportunities await. Secure the dogs on their leads to run wild over where moorland sprawls and rivers flow. Haldon Forest Park offers a fantastic opportunity for natural cycling. Situated just outside of Exeter, the trails give beautiful views back across the city and the surrounding countryside. After all that, find your way back to the Crab Shack Apartment to relax on the balcony and enjoy watching the boats come in with some fresh Crab Shack fruits de mer and a cold glass of chablis.
