Find cottages in DawlishVisit Dawlish

A traditional seaside town with huge charm, Dawlish is the perfect place to relax and enjoy everything the English Riviera has to offer.

The town started life as a little fishing village, and has grown over the years into the quintessential seaside holiday destination. The pretty beach has a backdrop of the red sand stone cliffs that are so associated with the West Country. Another claim to fame is the population of elegant black swans that make their home in the area. The railway line runs directly beside the sea, guaranteeing a scenic arrival should you chose to travel by train.

There is plenty to see and do for all ages. The Dawlish Warren Blue Flag nature reserve and beach is ideally located close to the centre of town. It incorporates mile upon mile of clean, sandy beaches with a delightful wildlife reserve that is packed full of fascinating birds, mammals, insects and reptiles. Go-karting, mini golf and traditional seaside amusements will keep children engaged and amused for hours. Add in the level shopping area and a well-appointed 18-hole golf course and fun for all the family is guaranteed.

The Dawlish carnival in August is a highpoint in the town calendar, attracting visitors from miles around, and the annual Air Show showcases a thrilling array of aircraft that loop and swoop above the spectacular coastline.
