Dawlish Warren is such a beautiful part of Devon. This year is our second year and we have booked for next year to come back, the beach is beautiful, we love seeing Billy bones the pirate. Definitely worth a visit to the mount pleasant Inn which is home to the popular Web cam.. but my the views are even better. We would recommend Dawlish Warren

can't wait for the october yearly holiday to the welcome family holiday park

adrian - dover

Jul 10, 2016

I lived at Tresco, in Shutterton lane when I was a kid and the whole of the Warren was just magic. However, with the influx of greedy moneymaking builders throwing up sub-standard 'holiday shacks' and scores of foreigners inhabiting them, poor old Dawlish Warren has turned into a holiday slum. Glad I don't live there any more. ***Editors note: A lot has changed for the good - we have an amazing beach (2017) and the resort is looking very good indeed - come and see us if you are over from Australia!

Feb 01, 2016

Have been visiting Dawlish Warren for 30 years with my family (mom & dad, sister and her husband + 3 children and me and my husband), have just returned from another fantastic week (October half term). Mom & Dad started to bring me and my sister to Dawlish Warren from a very early age, my sister and her husband have started to do the same with their children (3yr old, 6yr old & 14yr old). Even now years later it still feels like we are kids again as it rekindles those holidays when we were little and each year we get excited to see how things have changed from year to year, its just a fabulous place for all families to visit no matter how old you and there is always something to do no matter what the weather. Just fantastic and can't wait to return again next year.

WEBMASTER NOTE: There is a tanning salon on the Strand. I am sure there is a gym locally too - try googling for it.

The go karts were brilliant

Maxriley - Birmingham

Aug 26, 2015

I'll start with the positive. Beautiful resort with friendly people, great food and a lovely place to be - we always feel so comfortable and relaxed here. Also, we love the fact that it is so 'child friendly' and ideal for the little ones. However, there is one major issue that is possibly going to influence our choice next year - dog mess! Every day we walked down Warren Road toward the beach, and every day it was a nightmare - steering our children around the disgusting mess left by dogs and their irresponsible owners. Seriously, this might even stop us from visiting again, as much as we love this place. I'm not exaggerating - it was everywhere on the footpaths! We found this most disgusting! This issue needs to be addressed - a dog friendly resort needs also to be a dog responsible resort! ***WEBMASTER COMMENT 9 September 2015 *** Thanks for your feedback. I will pass it on to the local authority for their attention. You summed it up perfectly though - Irresponsible dog owners.... Hope you decide to return to see us some time.

Kevin Billingsley - Solihull, West Midlands

Came here a couple of years ago and we have missed it. Such a great place near a railway station as we don't drive. Luckily we will be there tomorrow for a week, yay! Bringing the gramps too. Gotta climb red rock and watch the steam trains pass through plus waving at the drivers. Just wish there were more places to eat other than that perfect!

Lisa Joy - Woodford Green Essex

Jul 24, 2015

What is happening to the warren guys ???boathouse and the mount pleasant meals so so expensive used to eat out regular but getting so dear in both venues. Do they price up just this time of year and portions get smaller. WEBMASTER COMMENT: Thanks for your comments. Most businesses review their prices annualy and if necessary adjust (up or down) to reflect the anticipated trading conditions for the next 12 months. As far as I know there are no seasonal adjustments and getting a table at peak times in either can be difficult due to demand. Other "eatery" options include The Welcome Inn, Silly Goose, Lee's Bar in the Warren. The Anchor Innand The Ship Inn just along from the Warren at Cockwood Harbour are well worth a visit too.

dawlish has always been a speacial place in me and my husband's heart. the train tracks across the bay on a balmy summer day. after a good walk across the beach, my husband, always says he loves to take a cold bottle to his lips and drink water with grace and remeberance of our past.

grace cready - edingburgh

first time I visited Dawlish warren was way back in 1973 then again in 1998 then again on june 20th 2015.changed so much over the years but even better everytime I visit..

graham - swindon

Jun 15, 2015

Disappointed in the lack og logic in the play area/amusements. My 2 1/2 year old could go on the unsupervised bumper boats in 3 feet of water, and Go Karts were at our discretion as the responsibility/liability is ours not theirs, but was 'too small' to go on the big wavy slides even though i was going with him. He goes down them by himself at Crealy, and was halfway up before i had to go and take him off. COMMENT FROM WEBMASTER: I am sorry your day did not go as you expected. The redeveloped "Funder Park" is looking really amazing and the Mini Golf now has 18 holes to enjoy.

will be staying at oak cliff on the 17th of may try to come down at least once a year, Oh by the does anyone one now when the see wall will be open thanks. NOTE FROM WEBSITE EDITOR/ NETWORK RAIL: Dawlish Warren to Dawlish - Seawall News - 28 April 2014. The section from Boat Cove to Coast Guard footbridge is open- repairs will be ongoing for the next four weeks along sections of the walkway near Dawlish Station, access along the walkway will be maintained during this period. The section from Dawlish Warren to Rockstone footbridge is currently scheduled to open for mid June. The section between Coast Guard and Black Bridge (including Sea Lawn and Riviera Terrace) is currently scheduled to open by the end of September due to the extensive container removal and works to rebuild the outer face of the wall, which are limited by the tide and train movements.

I love Dawlish Warren, used to go there for holidays when I was a little girl (and I am now 55). We used to stay at Golden Sands Holiday Camp in the 1960's. To be honest I did not realise it was still there, so we are staying at the Hazelwood Holiday Park this year, my daughter and her partner and their son are coming with us for the first few days, I am so happy to be staying there again.

Came down to the 'Warren' the 1st 2 weeks in June (2011), and we were let down by the horrendous weather for the very FIRST time visiting Dawlish for over 25 years. The local shops and businesses were suffering, and we hope they will survive this spate of really poor Summer weather. Red Rock Apartments were immaculate again, and comfortable with full central heating. We spoke to quite a few holiday makers that were staying in caravan's and were planning to cut short their holidays due to the cold & rainy weather. We will be hoping for much better weather next year.

I wish the council would come to their senses and allow all the old stalls back as they used to be along that now barren piece of green, it was well worth a nose amongst them and brought character to the warren, the "big shop" is just not the same and I feel a lot of people stopped going when the were so callously removed.
