Another day we walked to the beach via footpath and bridge over railway and then on to Dawlish and returned on 'bus. Another day we went by 'bus to Starcross then ferry to Exmouth returning by train, and lots of other things. Good facilities in kitchen so we always cooked our evening meal, lots of very hot water for the washing up. Kitchen tap a little stiff but quite manageable. Best short break we have had for a long time.

It's the most perfect place we've ever stayed at in the UK. A proper home from home in every way. The location is sublime with ever changing views which we never got tired of.The icing on the cake though, was we saw a pod of dolphins on 2 different days, absolutely amazing. we're already planning our next visit to this magical place and can't wait to come back.
