Sparrow's Nest is less than 2 miles from the beaches at Dawlish and Dawlish Warren and from the ferry to Exmouth. Views to the Haldon hills over open fields. The cottage is surrounded by farmland; your only neighbours are us.

Few areas can offer such beautiful and interesting places to visit within such a short distance.

One double aspect double bedroom, and one twin room, with non-allergenic bedding. The lounge has a TV with DVD player (DVDs provided), 2-seater settee and 3 chairs. There's a dining room and a downstairs toilet. The kitchen has a cooker, washing machine, fridge with small freezer box, and a microwave. The bathroom upstairs has a Mira electric over-bath shower. There's an attached outhouse for your buckets and spades and fishing nets....

Rather steep stairs, with a handrail and stair gate at the top.

The pretty gardens at the side and back are enclosed and safe for children. There's a picnic table and off-road parking in front of the cottage.

The cottage is non-smoking. We have a large field that you may enjoy.

Electricity is included.

Bedding, towels and tea-towels are provided.

Wi-fi is available.

Dawlish 2 miles. Dawlish Warren 1.5 miles. Starcross ferry to Exmouth 1.5 miles. Exeter 9 miles.

Stations at Dawlish, Dawlish Warren and Starcross.
Bus stops for Dawlish or Exeter 1 minute away.

Sainsbury's supermarket and petrol 1,5 miles.

Sparrow's Nest is on a Devon County Wildlife Site. Cirl Bunting birds are special here. Also badgers, foxes, deer and lots of pheasants.

The south west coast path is close, as are Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve and River Exe estuary.

Great cycle path all around the River Exe from Dawlish to Exmouth.

A large countryside park is 5 minutes' walk from here.

There are boat trips from Dawlish and Exmouth from May to September and a ferry from Teignmouth (4 miles) to Shaldon for its quaint streets, small zoo and smugglers tunnel to a secluded beach...

Theatres in Dawlish, Teignmouth, Torquay and Exeter.

Come and stay and find your own wonderful places to visit and things to do, or just enjoy relaxing in the garden.
