A truly beautiful and spacious self-contained suite with superb 180 degree sea views, spectacularly located in a well-known artist's home on the cliffs immediately overlooking Dawlish's famous sea wall. Large open plan living area with dining/ lounge/bedroom in one stylish room. Separate kitchen. Luxury shower room.
ISOLATION GOOD!
Close to town/station/beach/ parking. Easily reached from all over the Country by train if you don't want to drive - the station is only a few minutes' walk away.

The space
Our house is built right into the red sandstone cliffs, starting at the cliff top and finishing at the bottom! Every one of the four storeys enjoys fabulous sea views, and the honeymoon suite, three floors above the sea, is just like being in a big ship without that tiresome seasickness!

"Your" part of the house is reached from the road via eight steps down, and then across a charming blue bridge to a pretty flower-filled terrace, where you can enjoy taking the afternoon sunshine, or sitting around the cute table-for-two for a morning coffee. A front door, which during your stay is effectively for your exclusive use, then leads through a common hallway to your suite, which is completely self contained.

You'll enter straight into a beautiful open-plan room occupying the full width of the house, with dining table and chairs comfortably nestled into the large bay window, where you can savour the breathtaking sea views while enjoying your meals. The bedroom area contains a king-sized bed with quality mattress, and in the lounge part there is a three-seater sofa, a sensational 55 inch curved 3d Television for a real cinema experience, complete with 2 pairs of 3d glasses, and an internet-smart Blu-ray dvd player, for TV catch-up services and other apps. Free wi fi also is available, with plenty of power points for computers and phone charging.

A pair of glazed double doors leads through to the fully equipped kitchen. We will provide a starter pack of materials for a nice English breakfast but you're welcome to use the kitchen freely for other meals. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, and comes complete with full-size double oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee-making facilities (basic supplies of coffee and tea in the starter kit) and automatic washing machine - iron and ironing board.

A little lobby off the kitchen leads on into the luxury shower room and toilet. The suite is centrally heated, for those colder days and nights.

The pretty coastal township of Dawlish counts as one of the most charming and attractive of South Devon's seaside towns, centred around The Lawn, through which runs the delightful Brook, with its cascading weirs and world-famous black swans. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the area, and a choice of beaches, including Coryton Cove and Dawlish Warren, which holds a coveted Blue Flag award for cleanliness. Dawlish is superbly placed as a centre for sight-seeing throughout beautiful South Devon, with Dartmoor just a short drive away. The excellent road and rail links (to all other parts of the Country) are within walking distance . The fine cathedral city of Exeter is only eleven miles away, and Plymouth within an hour's easy drive; Torbay and the beautiful South Hams District are equally accessible.

Car parking is normally available in the street right outside, or very near, the house, and there is also a Council car park just a few hundred yards away.

Where you’ll be

Dawlish, DEVON, United Kingdom

Dawlish is a lovely seaside town with beautiful countryside nearby so, as you can imagine, tourists and visitors are well catered for. Right in the centre of the town is a pretty brook edged by gardens, a large lawn with bandstand (often used for entertainments), and a lovely bowling green. There are coffee shops and restaurants aplenty, and there are lots of things to do - boat trips and fishing trips on the bay.

If you like walking, there are many beautiful places to discover in and around the area. There is the coastal footpath for very energetic folk and gentler walks, like following the Brook up past the Manor and gardens, or the Newhay walk which leads to Aller Arch (the driveway to Luscombe Castle - yes we have a castle but it isn't open to the public!)

Not only do we have great walks, we also enjoy new cycle tracks, in particular the ones leading to picturesque Cockwood Harbour.

Dawlish Leisure Centre - with swimming pool, gym, table-tennis, badminton, Zumba classes, squash etc... - is just up the road from our house. There are also tennis courts and a football club in the vicinity of the Leisure Centre.

Dawlish has a nice little theatre, as does neighbouring Teignmouth (also a pretty seaside town), which boasts a brand-new major arts and theatre facility, the Teignmouth Pavilion . Our nearest cinema is at Newton Abbot, 8 miles from Dawlish but during the summer our Shaftsbury Theatre often puts on films..

Powderham Castle (open to the public during the summer and shoulder times) is 5/6 miles from us. Starcross (4 miles from us) is famous for Brunel's Atmosheric Railway; from there you can catch the ferry across the mouth of the River Exe to Exmouth - not far but the coast feels a little different.

Nearby Dawlish Warren has an expansive beach with nice fine white sand and it also has a wonderful nature reserve (bliss for bird lovers!).

Cockwood Harbour is a favourite destination of ours, especially when we are cycling. There are two fine pubs - The Anchor Inn and The Ship - which are equally well-known in the area for lovely seafood dishes.

Hi, we're Sally and Chris! I'm Sally - a busy professional artist and writer, Australian by birth, but living happily here in sunny Dawlish with my English husband Chris for many years. Our large Victorian house is not only our much-loved home, but also accommodates my gallery and studio, where you'll find me hard at work most days, while Chris is producing picture frames up in his workshop, and at his computer, looking after business.

During your stay

The house is our home so we'll be available to chat and give advice when we're around. However, if you require privacy that's entirely up to you.

It's worth noting that Sally is a busy professional artist, but is always happy to talk about her work to visitors, and to discuss commissions. Everyone is welcome to wander around the house, which is not just Sally's home, but also her Gallery, having upwards of 200 originals and prints of her work permanently on display. Many of these are available for sale, and can be bought on the premises.
