The home looks out onto the sea. It is within 5 minutes walking distance from the town of Teignmouth, the seafront, the esplanade, the station, the bus stop, a local Mental Health team, and any of the three doctor’s surgeries.
A little further afield are the towns of Dawlish, Babbacombe, Paignton, Torquay, Shaldon, the historical city of Exeter, and the Dartmoor countryside.
A Relaxing, Stress Free Environment
Teignmouth (pop. 18000), Devon is situated on the estuary of the River Teign, and is a working port. It is within easy reach of Dartmoor, enjoys the warmer Devon climate, and encourages a relaxing, stress free environment. Being a holiday destination, it is ideal for family member’s to be able to make contact with the clients and enjoy the surrounding sights. There are plenty of inexpensive guest houses to accommodate visitors.
The town has an interesting variety of shops and carries the holiday flavour of a small Devon Town. There is always something of interest happening locally, and even when the entertainment scene is silent, there is the lovely estuary, the accessible countryside and the seafront, to enjoy.
