What makes this apartment unique

This is a great place to holiday if you prefer to use public transport because there is so much nearby. Whether you like a lively seaside resort with entertainment, amusements, chip shops and pubs or you like quiet walks along the coast and through the nature reserve, cycling, boat trips and coffee shops this location has it all. Dawlish Warren beach came in the top 12 blue flag beaches for 2016. There is also a blue flag beach at Coryton Cove. One end of the beach is lively the other is very peaceful and there is always part of the beach available for dogs.

Looked after from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

Stayed during Christmas period. Fantastic bottom floor flat. Clean, Tidy, and definitely good value for money. Our property contact Sue Larbalestier was brilliant, information was emailed to us before the holiday, keys were in place on arrival and heating had been put on. Even squeaky toy on the table for our Westie, Hamish. (thank you)

Walking to Dawlish Warren beach takes around 10 min at a steady pace, but what i found amazing was, even on Christmas eve (evening) shops, restaurants, amusement arcades were in no hurry to close. Many thanks Sue your professionalism and kindness from start to finish gave us a great short break this Christmas. Be back soon.

Furniture a little dated. But it’s a holiday home. Very clean and fitted out well. We went beginning of April so the hot water bottles were much appreciated.

Smart, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice flat which met our needs precisely. Whilest it is on a holiday site we were not effected by noise of any kind. The surrounding area is great for nice walks with our dog and has plenty of places to eat near by. Sea front just a few minutes walk away. Great stay and hope to do it again in the future.

Communication with The owner Sue is great. She gives bits of advice about local area and keeps updated and reminded about various bits and pieces.
