Naturally this means that there is a vast choice in holiday accommodation including holiday park, bed and breakfast (b&b), caravan park, camping and self catering.

However the best type of accommodation to see all that Devon has on offer is to rent a self-catering holiday cottage.

Dawlish local produce markets are held monthly on the Lawn and Dawlish has several clubs open to visitors such as the Camera Club, the Dawlish Art Group and the Teignmouth and Dawlish Ramblers Association who have weekly short and long walks along the coastal path, Dartmoor, the river and through fields.

5 of 5
Lovely traditional cottage full of character and charm in a very peaceful area but close to the village centre. Fantastic location to explore the costal Walks to Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth. Friendly locally run shop and a The Kings Head pubs staff where particularly attentive. The gas Log burner is a must if staying here in the winter, it just adds to the whole atmosphere. We will look froward to returning again next year and explore more of the area.

Beautiful, top class apartment, with a real wow factor. Will definitely go again

5 of 5
This is a top quality place to stay. The apartment is stunning, as is the view. Only downside is that it's a short drive to Restaurants and bars. But that is more than made up for by the quality and wow factor of the property.
