My wife and I had the greatest pleasure of staying at this delightful B& B. The lady of the house was one of the most kindly, delightful and gentle people we encountered on our long 3-month journey. The room was clean and spacious, and looked out to the ocean. What a view!! Everything was provided, the breakfast was delivered upstairs... More

A quaint b&b but interesting and well positioned for everything in Dawlish. We were visiting friends who live in Dawlish and would stay here again when down here with no compunction. The owner was helpful and made staying there easy and friendly. The sea is across a side street and under the main rail line which gave us no inconvenience... More

Bus stops right outside will take you to Exeter, Torquay, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot and, with a change, to Totnes, a delightfully different town that even has its own currency. For railway buffs,...

Had a lovely stay here. Very clean and inviting. Rooms a lovely size. View of the sea is stunning. Accepted my little dog and even bought her a treat up with our breakfasts which was such a lovely gesture. Owner was friendly and very helpful. Will definitely be booking to stay again. Could not recommend more highly!

We stayed for 1 night in Room 10, which had an amazing sea/railway view. The room was spacious, bright and charming with everything you could need. The owner gave us such a friendly, warm welcome and we enjoyed chatting to her. Nothing seemed to be any trouble. The breakfast served in the room was lovely. Only niggle was that the... More

Me and my partner stayed at The Blenheim for my birthday from the 30th of March until the 4th of April and it was absolutely lovely. We were a bit apprehensive about the stay since it was so cheap! But its a right little gem along the Dawlish railway. Don't let the railway put you off! You are very close... More
