The property

Offering idyllic seafront accommodation in the heart of Dawlish, a wonderful coastal town in Devon, 8 Coastguard Cottages makes for a fantastic retreat to the seaside.

Perfectly suited to three couples or a group of six friends, this former coastguard's terrace enjoys panoramic sea views from your own private terrace.

Find some parking on the road and travel down the forty steps to your Dawlish dwelling, enter and come into the kitchen to put the kettle on and begin getting settled in.

Discover a host of appliances within this neat kitchen space with a double electric oven and an induction hob amongst several more to assist you on your self-catered stay, fitted with attractive wood units.

Move along into the sitting room and spread out on one of the soft leather seats, with an electric pebble fire to add a homely feel, and a large wall-mounted TV for some evening entertainment on a quiet night in.

Enjoy a meal with a view within the bright and airy dining room-come-conservatory, with the windows looking out over the sea, you can dine in style.

On a warm evening move out to the wondrous terrace and take in the breath-taking views of the sea, enjoying the changing colours of the sky at sunset.

After you return from the beach covered in sand, enjoy stepping into the external shower room before you head inside the property, offering a convenient place to wash of the salty sea water and sand!

Find another shower room to freshen up in on the first floor, amidst the three charming double bedrooms, made up of a double, a four-foot double, both of these enjoying TVs, and finally a further four-foot double neatly placed against the wall, giving every guest a lovely spot to wind down in.

Head out onto the golden sands of Dawlish Beach and enjoy paddling in the sea, before exploring the towns selection of charming cafés and local shops.

Walk along the South West Coast Path and come to Dawlish Warren, a holiday resort area and nature reserve where the beach continues to stretch along, with cycle hire available here to continue adventuring along the coast, as well as a Warren Golf Club for keen golfers, and a fun Grand Prix race track!

Powderham Castle is a lavish 14th century castle resting further north along the River Exe near to Kenton, go here to marvel at the amazing tapestries and antiques, as well as the extensive grounds.

Further south is the town of Teignmouth, bustling with seaside fun and home to a classic pier built back in the mid-1800s, with Teignmouth Lighthouse providing a perfect photo opportunity, and the Shaldon Wildlife Trust over the water offering a great day out with a small zoo home to some rare species.
