Property description

Directly above Dawlish Town Beach and on the coast path. Getaway and listen to the waves all day, or explore Devon - Dartmoor, Exeter and Totnes all nearby. Close to town centre.

Recently converted 2 bedroom apartment, attached to Victorian Watch House, with sunny, open plan living area with fabulous outlook onto beach and sea. Patio views to Exmouth and Portland Bill and to the famous “Parson and Clerk” red cliffs and Brixham. Beautiful morning sunrise views. 'Delightful and magical'. 'Great retreat'.

Well equipped with ensuite bathroom and ensuite shower room, WiFi and FreeSat, washer-drier, bedding included, pets welcome (additional fee applies). Not suitable for those with limited mobility (steep access with steps ). Quiet bedrooms.

No vehicle access, so short walk from on-road car parking. Directly above end of Dawlish station platform

There are regular buses to Exeter, for city centre sight-seeing and shopping, with its lovely traditional Cathedral, a newly developed Quayside and many shops and restaurants, theatre, arts cinema, etc.

As well as the ferry from Starcross to Exmouth, there is a round-the-bay boat trip from the pier at Dawlish which runs throughout the day during the summer.

Access: Access from the Exeter Road is a steep public path with one section of steps, around 30 metres.

The path is for public access to the beach as well as for the Watch House & Coastguard Cottages. You may have a short walk to find the car parking space, and a 5-10 minute walk to the High Street shops.

Arriving by car on a summer Saturdays - approach Dawlish from Teignmouth, rather than Exeter, as the road through Starcross is very narrow and there may be delays.

Shopping and Eating: Dawlish is a thriving town with plenty of cafes, bars and wine bars, and good shops for daily shopping, snacks and baked goods. Try Gays Creamery on the Lawns (with the famous black swans), and Deli Delicious, where fish fresh from Brixham can be ordered. All are within 5-10 minutes walk.

There are family-style pubs on Marine Parade and a short walk away, Smugglers Inn at Holcombe along the coast path to the West (~30 minute walk) and at Dawlish Warren to the East (15-20 minutes walk).

Walkers can try Cockwood, just beyond Dawlish Warren, where there are two fine pubs for dining.

Other Amenities

  • The south-facing patio is stunning, with room for all to sit and watch the beach & sea and enjoy the sun. On the patio, and in the sitting room and kitchen with the patio doors open, you can see and hear the soothing sound of the waves, nothing beats it!! At high tide during Spring tides, the sea comes right up to the sea wall, so the beach then is available an hour or two before or after high tide. The beach below the apartment is generally sandy, but at times a top layer of stones is brought over by the waves. Dogs are allowed on the beach here even in summer. There is sea fishing from a nearby stone quay. Car parking is on the nearby roads. It is possible to stop for a short while only at the top of the path on the Exeter Road, where the pavement widens, for unloading. On-street parking is available up the side roads, uphill but a short distance!...moreless
