4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent one night in Dawlish in August, its best to book directly with them, as they are finding other booking sites frustrating. Its in a great spot, very close to the town centre, walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The owners were really helpful, and the Breakfast very good. Rooms were very clean, and bed comfy.

You will struggle to find a better B&B than this in Dawlish. Lovely friendly owners, nice clean and comfortable rooms and very nice breakfast. It even has a small bar which was very handy. Only two minute walk to town centre and seafront. Ample parking for several cars. Had a lovely 2 night stay here and would return without hesitation.

Yes we are ideally situated to explore the whole of South Devon, whether it is by car, bus or train. Many of our guests park their car in our Car Park and do not move it at all during their stay. They take advantage of the really excellent bus and train services which are both very close by. The railway... More
