Dawlish is a small town and seaside resort on the south coast of Devon, England between the main holiday destination of Torquay and the city of Exeter. Situated back from the seacoast above high, deep-red cliffs. A sandy stretch of coastline that extends for 3 miles north towards the estuary of the River Exe - home to some of the most beautiful beaches along the coast. The Town Centre has a varied selection of shops including high street names such as Boots, Woolworths and Co-operative along with smaller independents, offering something for everyone. There are also numerous eating places catering for all tastes, including traditional pubs, popular cafes and restaurants.
An historic port on the mouth of the Teign estuary. It has all the attractions of a seaside town, including a Victorian pier. Teignmouth is a working harbour, with many vessels, large ships, fishing boats and pleasure craft, entering and leaving the port.
Teignmouth is a town of two different characters. Along the seaward edge of the town is 'the Den', a large open space with lawns and flower beds that runs along the length of the town - between the promenade and an elegant crescent of Georgian buildings. The Den, is where most of the towns holiday activities take place.
As well as a pier, there is a theatre, cinema and model railway, children's play areas, tennis courts, bowling greens and a miniature lighthouse that marks the entrance to the harbour. The estuary side of the town has a very different atmosphere. Boats rest peacefully in the busy harbour, ferries take people across the estuary mouth to the quaint picturesque village of Shaldon, just across the water.
The estuary is a lively place, with waterside inns, boats for hire, fishing boats, yacht and beach huts - set against the stunning backdrop of Shaldon and the rolling fringes of Dartmoor, which can be seen in the distance.
There is a wide variety of shops in Teignmouth and the area is well served by several local pubs in the town which provide a warm welcome.
The rest of the town is a thriving mixture of interesting old back streets, pedestrian precincts and open public spaces. The town has a very relaxed feel to it.
