The property

Resting on the west side of the Exe Estuary in the quaint village of Cockwood, is this delightful, Grade II listed cottage.

Perfectly placed for enjoying the natural beauty of South Devon, this cottage is a wonderful choice for families and friends alike.

The cosy sitting room is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax beside the fire, browsing from the range of entertainment options of the TV.

The kitchen has everything you could need for a week long break, while the dining table offers ample seating for those family mealtimes.

For added flexibility, on the ground floor you will find a twin room serviced by a bathroom, which could be a great choice for the children.

Head upstairs to discover two more bedrooms, finished in a traditional décor with plenty of character, and a shower room.

Spend a sunny afternoon lounging in the rear garden, featuring a terraced seating area where you can even see some fabulous views of the estuary.

Within walking distance of the cottage is three pubs, including a superb harbour side inn with a seafood menu.

Cockwood is a small tidal harbour which has become a popular boating spot with summer ferries that journey to the sandy beaches of Exmouth and Dawlish – perfect for a day out.

Walk into Dawlish Warren for a selection of places to eat, drink and shop.

The South West Coastal Path also runs past the towns for you keen ramblers.

Further afield, why not visit the cathedral city of Exeter, one of the most vibrant and historically interesting cities in England?

Hillside is the perfect property for your family retreat to this area of England.

About the location


A couple of miles north east of the town of Dawlish is Dawlish Warren, a mile-long sand spit at the mouth of the River Exe on the stretch of south Devon coastline known as the English Riviera. Dawlish Warren has a selection of shops selling essentials, a golf course and a 55-acre nature reserve, an area of international importance for wildlife, and a roosting site for huge numbers of wading birds and wildfowl that winter on the estuary. The Nature Reserve is also home to more than 450 species of flowering plants including the rare Warren or Sand Crocus. Guided tours around the Reserve are available in the summer season. The beach at Dawlish Warren is a sandy Blue Flag beach backed by sand dunes and small lakes and stretches for miles to reach the Exe Estuary in one direction and Dawlish town in the other. A safe beach, lifeguarded in summer, provides a perfect place for seaside fun, and has many free, open-air events, children's entertainers and spectacular firework and air displays during the summer season. Dawlish Warren has a railway station on the Exeter to Newton Abbot line, one of the most scenic railway journeys in the country. Nearby there is much to occupy the visitor along the English Riviera coastline including Paignton Zoo, the Dartmouth Steam Railway, the picturesque fishing harbour of Brixham and the long pier and promenade at Teignmouth. A typically English seaside resort, great for family holidays at any time of year.
