As other reviewers have said, this BnB is very clean and comfortable, the hosts are welcoming and attentive, and the breakfast is great, including veggie sausages for vegetarians. But I particularly liked the location. Very close to the coastal path, just a 10 minute walk up the hill out of Dawlish, in a very quiet road, with views over the garden and through the trees to the sea. I also appreciated the thoughtful touches in the room, like little sheets of paper and a pen for those all-important notes, facial cleansing wipes and cotton wool pads - because I ALWAYS forget to take cotton wool on holiday!
We had the twin room with the private bathroom next door, which was much nicer than the tiny en-suite bathrooms you sometimes get, which have been squeezed in and leave you barely able to turn round. Much better to have space and comfort, AND bathrobes provided! And although there were other guests staying, we wouldn't have known they were there except at breakfast time, so perhaps the house is very well soundproofed? Not sure whether they were aware of us going in and out of our bathroom however...
Anyway, if you want to explore the lovely Dawlish coastline, I'd recommend the Beeches. It's excellent value for money and the hosts clearly enjoy doing everything they can to ensure guests have a pleasant and comfortable stay.
