We stayed here as it’s in a central location for staying in Devon. There are walks from the site and a great circular cycle route. Buses stop on the main road within 100m of the site, with good connections to Exeter or Newton Abbott. Dawlish Warren has a small but clean beach. There is a train service with Starcross and Dawlish Warren stations in easy reach

Best campsite we have stayed on, will visit again. Good family site, and worth every penny. The pitch is nice and wide to fit a large caravan with awning plus tow vehicle with room to spare.
