So earlier this year I had a little escape down to Devon with friends. After all everyone needs a break right?
whilst we were down there we stumbled across this little lovely haven
The Ness House Hotel is a Georgian property, built in 1810, on the outskirts of Shaldon village overlooking the Teign Estuary and only a stone’s throw from the beach.
20 yards away the Smugglers Tunnel can be found, leading you down to the secluded Ness Beach, sheltered by the Ness Cliff. There is a ferry which runs between Teignmouth and Shaldon and fishing at the mouth of the estuary is popular year round.
The Ness House offers award winning Badger cask ales, lagers from around the world and a menu full of fresh, seasonal dishes cooked by our team of talented chefs, using quality ingredients from our regional food partners.
We take real pleasure in making your visit memorable from family holidays to spontaneous romantic getaways.
Well I didn’t stay there, however we ate there twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner and spent and entire afternoon whiling away reading, writing and for some of us working in front of the lovely open fire there. Honestly we were made to feel very welcome, free wifi, great range of drinks and the food was delicious.
I can highly recommend the Vegetarian Panty Plate to share which although expensive between two and with the amount of food was very reasonable. Also the Falafel and Halloumi Burger with a delicious sourdough bun. The standard of the food was of a high quality and the presentation was lovely.
It is clear that it has been refurbished fairly recently and to a very good high standard. The rooms are beautifully themed with little booths made into a snuggly boatyard perfect for couples, to the music room, with walls lined with music paper of course. Not forgetting the general nautical theme throughout (have a look at the stunning compass painted on the ceiling)
A wonderful place tucked out of the way with an even better view, with just that little touch of class that some seaside resorts seem to miss, well worth a trip to.
