The views from most of the rooms were amazing, and eating breakfast looking out to sea was something special. The children particularly liked their own space in the attic room which was well equipped with toys and books. We all enjoyed using the spa pool and was especially good when the rain never stopped one day. We didn't use the gym and felt the space may have been better used for a pool or table tennis table. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Tudor Lodge and would highly recommend for a great family holiday in Dawlish
