One advantage of staying in the tranquility of this Devon village is the many offerings of entertaining activity available within a short distance from the village.

A washer would have been nice seeing that we stayed for a week but the positives far outweighed the negatives. Parking proved a bit challenging the first couple of days but by mid-week it was not a problem. I will definitrly be looking to stay here the next time I'm in the area!

No matter what the time of year, it's always a great time to visit No. 2 The Watch House. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed a relaxing couple of days with spectacular views out to sea. With Dawlish centre within easy walking distance and the train station nearby, it was easy to forget the car for the weekend and still get around. This really is a very special place.

Being a stone's throw from the rush cafe and the Ode fine dining were two big bonuses too. We'll be back for sure. Thank you x
