"A very comfortable cottage, conveniently located."

Small but beautifully planned out, Fox Cottage is very comfortably furnished and equipped. Everything is clean, tidy, of good quality and in good working order - not something you can always take for… More

"Lovely cosy cottage"

We had a lovely week staying in Fox Cottage with a 4 year old and a 1 year old. It was perfect for us, with travel cot and high chair so no need to bring our own and stair gate so no safety concerns. Having a washing machine and tumble dryer also made life a lot easier. The cottage had everything we needed and was cosy and beautifully decorated and well maintained. Good location for walks, shops, beach etc. Highly recommended!

"Excellent accomodation and location"

Well furnished, modernised cottage with all mod cons. Beds were excellent, extremely comfy and the extras provided such as milk and a cream tea on arrival, a decent flat screen tv with freesat and dvd were really appreciated. The cottage was very clean and it is obvious the owner goes that little bit extra to maintain this high standard. Good position for local amenities and with private parking provided the cheap rail tickets along the beautiful coast railway must be utilised.

"Cosy Comfy Cottage"

We had a lovely week in the cottage with our daughter and her partner.The cream tea was lovely to find on arrival, as was the milk and bread. The cottage is comfy, cosy and very thoughtfully equipped. The short walk into Dawlish was ideal for shops, amusements and eating places.The riverside walk is very pretty. The train was handy for car-free travel. It was easy to walk to Dawlish Warren where our other daughter and family were camping.

"A lovely holiday cottage"

My mother and I spent a week at Fox Cottage and found it comfortable and well-equipped. On arrival we found the cottage to be clean and welcoming, with a cream tea awaiting us. The beds, too, proved to be very comfortable. Mod cons include wi-fi, washing machine, tumble dryer, large TV, radio and DVD player. The location is exceptionally quiet (a backwater with virtually no passing traffic) yet within five or 10 minutes walk of anything you need in Dawlish. The park and the river (with its famous black swans) are just a couple of minutes walk away and there is a pedestrian path along the riverside down to the seafront. There are also pubs, restaurants and shops nearby. We found Dawlish a good base for our exploration of the coast and of Dartmoor and liked the fact that the town is quite compact. The provision of a private parking space at the cottage is another plus point. Good communication throughout from the owners, Charles and Judy.

"Lovely comfortable cottage in close proximity to shops, sea and public transport"

Fox cottage is a very comfortable, warm cottage, finished to a very high standard. It has every facility you could wish for including log burner, washing machine and tumble dryer - what a bonus!! It is situated near to the centre of Dawlish within easy walking distance to shops, beach, coastal path bus stops and train station. As the cottage has an off road parking space we were able to leave the car safely for the week whilst we walked or used public transport. We would certainly recommend a stay at the cottage. (The owners even left us a Devon cream tea and bottle of milk which was very welcome after a long journey).
