Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely clean comfortable cottage in great spot close to all amenities, beach, town centre with all 10 pubs being extremely dog friendly, dogs also allowed on beach all year round. Cottage is beautifully appointed with everything that you could need, a real home from home and the owner is very helpful and friendly. Would totally recommend especially if you want a great place to stay with your dogs. June 2012.
  2. At first glance the property seemed to be small from the outside, however upon entering we discovered a surpirisingly spacious and quirky cottage. We loved it! June 2012.
  3. Excellent quirky cottage perfect location. Everything we needed was supplied. Little extras like bottle of wine and flowers were lovely extra touch. Would certainly go back again. Credit to the owner. May 2012.
  4. Bayview Cottage was absolutely brilliant in virtually every way (some quite low ceilings, so a bit of ducking for me at 6 ft). The cottage itself had everything we needed for a really comfortable stay - including enough TV’s for all three of our kids to disappear and watch what they wanted without any arguments. The property was right by the railway station (but we couldn’t hear the trains), so we barely used the car to go to Exeter, Teignmouth, Torquay etc. Dawlish itself is nice; big enough to have good shops and takeaways (and a big Sainsburys nearby), but small enough to be quaint. Good local walks. Good restaurants within striking distance (we didn’t try those in Dawlish itself apart from the Chinese which was pretty good). Great welcome pack (flowers, wine, tea, coffee etc). Plenty of towels. Extremely helpful owner. April 2012.
  5. We were pleasantly surprised with the cottage and location, it was very clean and nicely decorated. It was a nice touch arriving to find milk, flowers and a bottle of wine - much appreciated. Plenty of places to eat. could try the Exeter inn approx 30 yds away. April 2012.
  6. A quirky cottage with bags of character. The location was very convenient for everything in Dawlish (beach, railway station, pubs, shops) but tucked away in a cul-de-sac, so it was actually very quiet. We particularly liked this cottage because it had an extra room with a bed in the attic so my adult sons both got a room to themselves (usually in a property that sleeps 6 they have to share, so this was a real plus for them!). March 2012.
  7. Great, quirky cottage. We arrived for a week by the sea for Christmas, Sue had put up and decorated a Christmas tree for us, left milk, coffee, tea, sugar and a bottle of wine, a lovely touch. The cottage was warm, comfy and clean, and had everything we needed, down to free wifi. We were a range of ages from 73 to 17 and all had a great time and agreed what a lovely property this was. Thank you. Dec 2011.
  8. This cottage, ideally situated in the heart of Dawlish, contains everything needed for a comfortable, relaxing holiday. Nov 2011.
  9. Cottage was excellent, young children will have hours of fun around the cottage, brilliant location and amenities. Sept 2011.
  10. Very warm welcome from owner; clean, charming cottage, full of character in a central location and car would not be necessary. Town/beach very dog friendly. All this enabled an extremely relaxing holiday - would definitely return! Aug 2011.
  11. Excellent, quiet location close to shops and station. Good rail connections mean easy to get around without having a car. (PlusBus in Torquay covering Newton Abbott good value.) TV in all bedrooms a hit with teenagers as was the WIFI. Plenty of leaflets on attractions in kitchen drawer. Very welcoming. July 2011.
  12. Very good, clean and modern. Everything you needed was provided and the owner didn’t bother us. Overall, very nice accomodation and situated right near the beach and town. Sept 2010.
  13. It was clean and pleasant. Sept 2010.
  14. Location couldn’t be more perfect. Once there no need for car. Although station only yards away (directly in front of beach) no problems with noisy trains. Great train service to Exeter and Torquay direction. Aug 2010.
  15. Bayview Cottage was spacious, comfortable & welcoming. It had a quirky cottage feel, was located close to all the amenities but still had a private feel to it. Just lovely. Aug 2010.
