How To Get to Dawlish Warren
Travel By Car - Sat Nav: EX7 0NF
The easiest way to get to us is from the M5 / A303 roads. Leave the M5 at Junction 30, signposted A379 Dawlish. This will take you off of the M5 and towards the edge of Exeter. Continue to follow the signs for Dawlish A379 and you will come to Countess Weir, continue straight across this junction and you will come to another roundabout, at this one keep to your left and keep following the A379.
Once you have turned left at this junction, you stay on this road through the villages of Kenton and Starcross. After you leave Starcross continue around the bend where you should see Cockwood Harbour in front of you. DO NOT go across this bridge, it is not friendly to caravans crossing, instead keep going straight on towards Dawlish. You will go past Cofton Country Holidays and Lady's Mile holiday park and eventually you will come to an (old) Texaco garage on your left. Turn left just before here into Warren Road, this will take you towards the Warren and your destination.
