  • "The bungalow was very well equipped and nicely set out with great views."

    Thnly problem we had was that the boiler had broken down and was due to be repaired on Monday. The plumber called and was unable to fix it with water driping out the bottom. Thus for the whole week we did not have any hotwater or central heating with an 8 week old baby, luckerly we did not need the heating our only hot water was the electric shower or kettle. The TV is only internet so no live TV like freeview. The other problem is the driveway it is so steep that you lift your rear wheel off the ground this happerned to both our cars and you have to be very careful when backing in. The property has a garden hose, which I would have liked to use when I turned it on it leaked from many holes so the car and the patio did not get a wash down. We enjoyed our holiday in Dawlish just these few problems could have made it even better.

    Nice comfortable house with lovely views, enjoyed our holiday there ,love the area ,only things didn't like about the house was the garden could have done with a good tidy up and the driveway was very challenging

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and the area. We have been to the property and given the garden a good tidy. We have also been able to arrange for a gardener to now attend on a regular basis. We are sorry to hear that you found the driveway a challenge. It does state the following on the website, to make guests aware - The driveway is approached via a steep hill, please take care. We do hope that this won't deter you from returning to the property, as we would love to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "The house is lovely and the beds very comfortable."

    Sadly the smell of wet dog permeated the whole house for a few days. There was food left in some of the drawers in the kitchen. The fixtures were fine but the main bedroom ceiling light didn't work and we hade to rely on lamps, the dining room ceiling light stopped working 3 days in but we had access to spares so were able to resolve this. The driveway is entertaining for longer vehicles. The views were amazing, and Dawlish is a beautiful little town.

  • "You left us stranded perched on a hill without a working tv set."

    The tv aerial was broken therefore it could not be tuned! There were cracked in walls all over the house and it all looked fragile. We contacted you on arrival and throughout our stay and was promised that it would be looked into. Nothing happened. Customer service is useless! Anthony Spiteri

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in Dawlish in a very nice property."

    The house is in a quiet location with a fantastic view and has easy (but steep!) access to the town centre. The house had (almost) everything we needed, although there were some missing kitchen items (e.g. wooden spoons and a measuring jug). Also, a welcome pack would have been helpful, e.g. to outline the recycling arrangements. The only negative was that the pre-arrival cleaning was not of a high enough standard - there was mouldy food and meat packaging in the kitchen bins, and the hoovering hadn't been done (we had to unblock the hoover to use it). Overall though, we would be happy to recommend this property.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback which we have discussed with the property owner. As this is their first year they are really grateful for your comments, all of which have been taken on board. A wooden spoon and jug have been purchased. the cleanliness issues have been flagged with the housekeeping team, sincere apologies that the cleanliness was not up to standard for your visit. A welcome pack is on the to-do-list for the future. Despite the points raised we are delighted you enjoyed your stay at 3 Meldrum Close. Property Owner

The property

Resting in the heart of the charming seaside town of Dawlish in Devon is 3 Meldrum Close.

This fabulous, dog-friendly holiday home benefits from a front patio with breath-taking views of the sea, an enclosed rear terrace garden with furniture, three well-appointed bedrooms and welcoming living spaces perfect for six guests.

After a day by the sea, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the sitting room with wood burner where you can sink into the plush corner sofa and flick on the Smart TV while the designated chef of the group gets acquainted with the fully-equipped kitchen.

Gather in the dining room to tuck into a hearty meal before stepping outside to the raised patio in the rear garden to toast your getaway with a glass of fizz while the sun sets behind the horizon.

When the sky darkens, wash off the day in the ground-floor bathroom before getting some much-needed rest in one of three bedrooms; choose from a ground-floor king-size, or a king-size and a twin both fitted with a handy basin.

3 Meldrum Close lies paces away from local amenities in Dawlish, stock up on essentials at the local convenience store or head out for an evening meal or drinks at The Brunswick Arms or The Marine Tavern.

Dawlish Town Beach is also close by, pack up your beach essentials and spend sunny days on its shores while the kids paddle in the sea.

The white sandy beaches of Dawlish Warren are 5 minutes in the car or a 40 minutes coastal walk away.

Follow the coast to find Torquay where you can stroll the golden sands of Oddicombe Beach, admire Babbacombe Model Village or Bygones which houses a life-sized Victorian shopping street.

Next, stop at St Michaels Chapel for stunning views across the town or head to Torre Abbey to lose yourself in history; continue the historic excursion in the ancient Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves.

Dartmoor National Park is slightly further afield but is well worth the visit for keen ramblers with plentiful walks, hikes, and trails with excellent views.Be sure to make time to tour Dartmoor Zoo which cares for a variety of exotic animals in its 33 acres.
