Dawlish is a charming coastal town of much character and history, situated on the south coast of Devon, about 13 miles from the Cathedral City of Exeter. Originally a small fishing port, the town developed into a well known seaside resort during the 18th century.
For those with a love of the sea, Dawlish has much to offer. The extensive main sandy beach is there to be enjoyed at all times, except high tide, whilst a south west sea wall path, provides access to the lovely old Boat Cove and beyond that, tucked around a small headland, Coryton Cove. Taking the sea wall path in a north easterly direction, the coast can be followed (except at extreme high tide), for some distance to Langstone Rock, and the resort of Dawlish Warren beyond.
Dawlish is well known for its black swans, which live with other waterfowl on the small river called Dawlish Water, which runs through ‘The Lawn’ – a delightful central public park laid mainly to grass.
Dawlish is also famous for its Brunel designed railway, which opened in the mid 1850’s and which ran between Exeter and Newton Abbot.
The thriving town boasts a good range of shops including a sizeable chemist (Boots), butchers, grocers, Lloyds bank, an excellent choice of cafes and restaurants, two town supermarkets (and a further large supermarket on the outskirts), a number of pubs, busy cycle shop (sales and hire), and a number of other independent shops.
Places of worship include the Parish Church of St. Gregory the Great, Methodist church, Roman Catholic church, Baptist church, United Reformed church and Dawlish Christian Fellowship.
Schools include secondary schooling – Dawlish Community College; junior schools – Gatehouse Primary school and Westcliff Primary school.
"Unfortunately I found myself in the position of having to put my late Mother's property on the market at the beginning of this year. It is always a very stressful time for close family, especially if you live in another country, and have never had to do it before! I was very nervous, apprehensive, and really did not know which way to turn. With the advice of my Mother's bank, and many close friends, four local Dawlish estate agents were suggested to me. I saw one, whom I knew was wrong from the word go, and then I met with Chris Parkes from Fraser Wheeler. This was the turning point! I had not only met an agency that I knew were sympathetic with the personal situation, but, were also very forward thinking and pro-active as far as a potential sale was concerned. I was so impressed and confident with our initial discussions and feedback, that I cancelled the following two agents' appointments the very next day. Fraser & Wheeler were absolutely wonderful, and took away a large part of the hassle that is usually involved with a property sale, and their follow up to detail was amazing. Within four days of the property going on the market, they had found a secure buyer for me. I would strongly recommend anyone who is selling a property in the Dawlish, Teignmouth, Starcross area to contact Fraser & Wheeler .... especially if you happen to be living outside the UK (or in another part of the country), and at a distance. They have the ability to make all the property selling wheels run so smoothly for you. A big Thank You to Fraser & Wheeler."
