Dawlish (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... you want a nice place where nice people visit and live, then this is not the place for you. This is not in doubt. On the other hand, if you're looking for a tattoo, somewhere to walk your pitbull (but not too far in case you lose some weight), and fancy drinking in dingy pubs (with the bonus of scrapping in the streets afterwards), then this is definitely the place for you!! You're guaranteed a hideously backward and tacky shopping experience, and to be rubbing shoulders with some choice characters. If passing through always dress down - the closer to the vagrant look the better. You dont want to stand out from the crowd. If ever... more

Treat any rating above 1 star with some scepticism. It has almost certainly been posted by someone with something to gain from enticing people to this ghastly seaside town. If you want a nice place where nice people visit and live, then this is not the place for you. This is not in doubt.

Dawlish is a seaside town in the Teignbridge District Council area in South Devon situated between the Devon capital Exeter and the market town Newton Abbot and attracts thousands of visitors during the spring and summer periods. From Exeter the town is 12 miles away by car or approximately 15 minutes travel on the train. One can easily access all the other resorts in Devon from Dawlish on this branch line which is one of the most scenic lines in the country with regular trains to Exeter, Newton Abbot, Paignton, Totnes and Plymouth and on into Cornwall. If visiting the town by car, there is a one way system around the main town area and ... Read the complete review

I am happy to say that I am regularly able to visit this peaceful town as my dad now lives there. I remember going on holidays there as a child with my parents and as my Aunty lives there we used to visit her too. As we lived close by we never stayed over but in 2006 we took the plunge and had a holiday there and rented out a caravan on one of the Holiday Camps. ** The Beach ** The beach isn't at all sandy its more of a stony kind of sand, which isn't very pleasant on your feet, however its still very nice to look at or sit beside. There are deck chairs available and a small café/shack which sells tea/coffee, cold drinks and ice creams. The beach is ... Read the complete review

Dawlish is a delightful little seaside town on the North East coast of Devon. It is one place I've visited what seems like every year since the dawn of time, but I haven't really. My first memories are with my dad and older sister going there on a day coach trip every year during the Summer holidays. The beach itself is pretty shingly, but the nearby Dawlish Warren is mainly sandy. It's a great train trip either stopping or going along the sea wall at Dawlish despite the occasional rock falls that have happened in recent years, and I love sitting on the beach and watching the trains going past in and out of the tunnels from or to ...

Dawlish in South Devon is a smallish town with many hidden surprises. There is a railway station that overlooks the main recreational area, & trains can be seen from the street passing the bridge on the way to Teignmouth & beyond. Dawlish seafront is quite charming with a long wall going out to sea, which people can stroll along. The sea barriers with the red lobster pots are still there, & you get take boats trips to starcross 7 round the bay, but to Dawlish. In the centre of Dawlish is a park that has a small river or stream running through the middle, with lights hung across the water which are quite pretty when lit at night. There are benches to sit down ... Read the complete review
