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. We guarantee these views will captivate you as they have, and still do, for us. This house comes with 40' Smart TV, Blue Ray, Digital radios to each bedroom, Wi-Fi internet connections and Freeview TV to the main bedroom. And uni...Sea views do not come much better than this.

This house comes with 40' Smart TV, Blue Ray, Digital radios to each bedroom, Wi-Fi internet connections and Freeview TV to the main bedroom. And unique to most holiday properties we provide both BT Sport and all SKY Sports channels to the living room. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HOUSE SITS 10 METRES DOWN FROM THE MAIN ROAD AND THEREFORE ON STREET PARKING IS A 2-3 MINUTE WALK AWAY FROM THE FRONT DOOR. THE COTTAGE IS ALSO 10 METRES ABOVE THE SEA WALL SO EVEN THE TOUGHEST INCLEMENT WEATHER IS SAFE TO VIEW FROM THE TERRACE. ITS SETTING OFF THE ROAD IS THE APPEAL.ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY IS VIA A RAMP AND A SERIES OF STEPS AND PATHS. IT IS THEREFORE NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THE INFIRM, OR THOSE WHO NEED TO TRAVEL HEAVY.More

I don’t usually leave reviews, but have made an exception for Coastguard Cottage. Nestled away a short walk from the main road into Dawlish, this is one of the best holiday properties we have stayed in. The views alone would warrant a good review, looking...More

This was an amazing cottage, in an unbelievable location. An added bonus, as we had no car, was the fact that the railway station was so close by

About the neighbourhood
We are situated right on the beach, but the town and train station is only an 8 minute walk away. Once you park your car there is enough to do in the immediate area not to have to keep driving everywhere. The train services are also good and reach all the main areas. Dartmoor is only 20 minutes north of the cottage with all its walks and quaint towns, villages, restaurants and pubs.
Getting around
Walking and train services generally mean there is no need to tear around in a car. A large CoOp in town together with the wheeled trolley bag kept under the stairs again means you don't have to take the car for food shopping.
