About UsShaldon Tourism Centre was created over 20 years ago by a group of local people who decided to put Shaldon on the map.
Historically visitors from the Midlands had been coming on holiday to Shaldon and Ringmore for decades, many owning holiday homes on the various holiday parks and caravan sites that encircle the village and not forgetting the Teign Haven caravan park by the bridge, now Shoreside and Oystercatcher Court.
However Shaldon was largely a hidden gem, so in May 1990, an inaugural meeting took place, and Shaldon Information Centre was formed.
Teignbridge District Council very kindly allowed The Old Stables, Ness Car Park, Shaldon, to be used as the venue, and it was run by volunteers anxious to promote trade within the village and help the local economy.
The Centre went from strength to strength, building up a strong reputation in the locality and transferred to a shop in Fore Street for a season, but reverted to the more spacious Old Stables again until, in 1994 a portacabin, The Blue Cabin, was offered by TDC, for use in the Ness Car Park.
The Centre has developed further at the new venue, with a strong and enthusiastic volunteer work force of about 40 helpers offering impartial advice to about 7,000 visitors each season. Information is provided on local activities (even on a rainy day!) and accommodation and visitors are encouraged to explore all the attractions and hidden corners of this delightful village.
The official Shaldon Village website, endorsed by TDC and supported by Shaldon Parish Council was created more than 10 years ago by Shaldon Tourism Centre and initially focussed on accommodation and events information, however this too has developed to support and promote all businesses within the villages of Shaldon and Ringmore as well as giving more insight into the natural attractions of this beautiful corner of South Devon.
Funding to operate Shaldon Tourism Centre and Shaldon Village website is achieved by member subscriptions, small local grants, occasional events and the sale of postcards, maps and guides at the Tourism Centre.
