Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Dawlish - Coastguard Cottage

Quiet Front Line 3 Bedroom Cottage On The Beach & Within 5 Mins Walk Of Town

www.arcademywebsite.wix.com/coastguard-cottage

Sea views do not come much better than this. A great opportunity to holiday in a former coastguard cottage located in a tucked away setting, whist still enjoying easy access to the town's amenities and transport links. With spectacular and far reaching sea views across Dawlish beach out towards both Lyme bay and Torbay, the cottage is arranged over two floors and comprises kitchen, lounge, dining area, a master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms, all with double beds. With front and rear gardens there is also a handy storeroom where beach gear and bikes can be kept.

The house sits 10 metres down from the Exeter Road, so there is no road noise and no parking within a 2-3 minute walk of the property. The house also sits 10 metres above the sea wall and so affords fantastic views whilst being protected from the big sea storms that can hit from time to time; the cottages have never been flooded in their history.

For those of a nervous disposition, the wall to the terrace garden has a 10 metre drop on the sea side down to the railway line, so toddlers, children, teenagers and irresponsible adults need to be both watched and aware.

However, all that being noted we guarantee these views will captivate you as they have, and still do, for us.

About Peter French

Peter owns a design firm in London, and his wife Shelagh is a professional artist to MA level; their experience and taste has been imposed onto this house for the benefit of everyone including themselves (when they get the chance to stay at the property themselves). They have three teenage daughters, and the whole family love the unique variety this area has to offer.

Peter French purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peter French chose Teignbridge

I first went through Dawlish by train with my Dad in the late 70s and just fell in love with it. I have always wanted a seaside getaway, quiet but central and front-line; Dawlish and this house just ticks all the boxes for us. Picturesque town, thriving high street, clean beaches, wonderful walks and just endless things to do both at sea and inland. And as a regular user of Home Away, we know what the holiday maker wants. Taste, cleanliness, thoughtful design and great value. We are confident you will fall in love with this house and its location, and we want you to experience the wonder we still experience every time we go there.

What makes this cottage unique

We waited around 3 years for the right property to come up. It had to be the right size, the right location and have the right outlook. This has it all, and whether its the middle of winter with a sea storm in full force, or the height of summer with tranquil sea breezes and soft waves lapping the Devonian red sand, this cottage will ensure you fall in love with everything inside and outside of the doorstep.

PLEASE NOTE THE RATES FOR THE PROPERTY HAVE BEEN INPUT TO MAKE THE LISTING EASIER FOR ME, SO ALWAYS CHECK WITH ME ON THE PRICING FIRST - GENERALLY IT WILL RANGE FROM AROUND £500 PER WEEK IN THE LOW SEASON THROUGH TO AROUND £850 PER WEEK IN THE HIGH SEASON

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Ich habe wenig Zeit deshalb auf deutsch.

Es war ein wundervoller Urlaub. Das Haus ganz großartig, alles hat super funktioniert, wir hatten einen grandiosen Ausblick aufs Meer.

Das Haus wunderschön eingerichtet und sauber, mit toller Terrasse, kurzen Wegen zum Strand, keine Parkplatzprobleme. Die Vermieter sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten auch zu Fuß.

Wir würden jederzeit sehr gerne wieder hinfahren.

Perfect house and location with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

The photographs on the website don't do the cottage justice; the property is furnished to a high standard with every item you could possibly require and not forgetting the stunning views! We certainly felt like we chose the perfect place to spend our holiday. Definitely use the local butchers and bakery they are good value for money and excellent quality. Just wish we had booked two weeks instead of one.

what a birthday surprise

  • 5 of 5

We arrived Friday afternoon for my husbands birthday. The property was more than we could of hoped for. The view has a massive big WOW factor, never to be bored of. The sound and site of the sea from morning till night amazing. We took the ferry from teignmouth to shaldon and had a wonderful late lunch with bottle of wine at the clipper inn. Good value food with a full menu choice which would suit most. The property is tastefully furnished to a high spec. The weather was not too kind so a return in the summer would be great. We parked our car in the recommended parking roads, and did not use it again till we returned home. Have already recommended the property to family and friends.
