Description

Enjoy wonderful sunsets over the sea from this peaceful clifftop house, just 10 miles from Exeter with its excellent links.

Stunning, uninterrupted sea views can be enjoyed from this spacious and individual, detached clifftop house, including views from three double bedrooms and one twin room. It is set just above the beach, which can be accessed via a private footpath and bridge. Built in 1860, this was the coastguard’s cottage and it has been completely restored to offer a perfect holiday home for families, or groups of friends to get together, a spacious property in a fantastic position. Situated above the Dawlish railway line, it offers far reaching views across the bay. There is a lovely patio area for al fresco dining whilst watching the lovely sunsets over the sea. Dawlish is a small seaside town approximately 10 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter with its regional airport and M5 motorway junction. It can be reached by regular bus and rail services from the town centre. The immediate countryside is a haven for walkers as the town is close to the Haldon Hills and Dartmoor National Park. There are 18-hole golf courses at Dawlish Warren and Teignmouth, as well as sailing facilities on the nearby Exe and Teign estuaries. The town offers a range of facilities and is well known for the brook and adjacent lawns which are home to a variety of water fowl including the famous black swans which are the town’s emblem. Once down at the sea front, you can enjoy the extensive picturesque shoreline in both directions. To the left, a leisurely sea wall walk takes you to the famed long sandy bathing beaches of Dawlish Warren, skirting the entrance of the Exe Estuary, and its nature reserve full of rare flowers, unusual birds and hidden ponds. To the right takes you to Coryton Cove, along the famous ’atmospheric’ railway line, past the bright row of beach huts and to the Edwardian gentleman’s sandy bathing bay, complete with a small cafe and interesting rock pools to explore. Teignmouth is close with its shops and pier. Sit in one of the local cafes or pubs right on the beach or take a short ferry ride across to Shaldon, where there are many cafes for a Devon cream tea, and a few independent shops. Brixham and Torquay are both just a short drive away, with theatres, boat trips, Sea Life centre and many more attractions. There are also plenty of NT places to visit. Beach 400 yards. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    The house is in an amazing location, cannot be beaten for stunning views. In my opinion the house is a little tired, in need of a few improvements which if implemented, I would be happy to stay again. The shower room downstairs, the unit could be serviced as there is a noticeable leak from the back of the unit, and quite a lot of mold build-up within the shower. The security could do with some improvement, we felt it necessary to put chairs up against the inner back door and front door. There is quite a strong smell of damp, and we noticed most of the downstairs windows were painted shut and unable to open. The owner is a very nice lady.

    We loved the house and the location but unfortunately we felt the cleanliness of the house was poor. There was an awful smell on the stair carpet midway (outside the bathroom) which we believe could have been removed with professional cleaning, also as you enter the kitchen and the shower room. Coming down the steps to the house from the main road in the evening can be quite dangerous as there is no lighting. In the bathroom downstairs, the electric shower was also dangerous and water was pouring from the back of the unit near the electrics and there was a double socket in there for the washing machine. The security of the house is also questionable as there is only one lock on the front door (easily broken into) and the back door didn't lock although there was a chain on the conservatory doors but not a lock. One of the double beds was in poor condition, possibly broken in the middle and the settee in the lounge was also visibly broken at the end. However, this didn't spoil our holiday as the house does have plenty of room and easily accommodates 10 people and the views from the house are lovely. We all felt that a small amount of money spent on the house and security would be well worth it and we would consider renting again if all those problems were dealt with.

    Some decorating needed to be completed, bathroom not yet finished and peeling paintwork but overall good value for money and great location.

    A lovely house in a beautiful location with stunning views. Could do with a little TLC but this is just minor and did not detract from our stay at all. Considering its size it is lovely and warm and cosy. Just a note if you go out at night take a torch as although there is good outside lighting it does not extend to the porch and the door where you fumble to get the key in the hole.
