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.

We cooked from fresh (mostly local produce) most nights with no problem - facilities were great. The view from the property is lovely and everything as advertised. We hope to return sometime maybe with family as there was plenty of room. However, the peace and quiet was perfect for just the two of us. Paul was very helpful and available close by - we had no cause to call on him during our stay as everything was perfect. We chose this property because we wanted somewhere that would be lovely to stay inside if the weather was poor. The weather was mostly fine though so we went for many walks locally and on the nearby moors. We explored the local coast, towns and villages which are beautiful - a great base for exploring the area.
