Nearest pub

The Anchor Inn Cockwood (½ mile)

If location is what you're after then this is the place to go. Right on the harbourside, you can sit and watch the world go by all day. The Anchor Inn specialises in seafood but you'll also find lots of other options.

Nearest beach

Dawlish Warren Beach (¾ mile)

The award-winning Dawlish Warren Beach has numerous accolades under its belt. A haven for wildlife, it is recognised as one of the most important sites for wildfowl and wading birds in England. Popular amongst flightless visitors too, the beach provides lots of family-friendly activities and facilities. From go karting to water sports to eateries offering food and drink, there is something for everyone here.

Nearest walk

Dawlish Discovery Walk (1 mile)

This lovely five and a half mile walk takes in the picturesque Victorian town of Dawlish. The terrain is easy, meandering along the Coast Path when its low tide and inland during high tide or bad weather. Take your dog with you as you will pass beaches and dog friendly pubs en-route.

Walk from Dawlish Warren to Dawlish

Good parking and a pleasant walk between the sea and coastal train line. Dogs allowed on buses so could go onto Teignmouth and explore more.

Nearest town

Exmouth (1 ½ miles)

Just ten miles downstream from Exeter, Exmouth sits where the River Exe meets the sea. Famed for its two miles of sand, Exmouth is a well-loved family holiday resort. The area has some fantastic walking, whichever direction you head off in. Along the coast, millions of years of geological history are in evidence in the vibrant red cliffs; the rocks here are older than any others on the Jurassic Coast that stretches through Devon and Dorset. Walking inland is just as lovely; alongside the river to the picturesque village of Lympstone is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Also nearby

Shaldon (5 ½ miles)

Shaldon is an unspoilt village situated on the mouth of the river Teign between Torquay and Teignmouth. It has a thriving livelyhood based on the estuary. On a clear day, Portland Bill can even be seen despite being 50 miles away. A pretty village with two churches, a boutique, butcher, coffee shop and many conserved areas for all to enjoy.

Shaldon village

Lovely walk with our dog along the estuary into Shaldon village with a few shops/cafes. London Inn pub by the bowling green friendly pub with excellent beer and food (Best to book for Sunday lunch). If you don't like the Hi De Hi type holiday with amusements and cheap trinket shops then this is a place to visit

Very English Shaldon

A little hidden gem this village right on the seafront facing Teignmouth on the estuary, nice stylish shops and narrow streets with a bowling green and several nice pubs with good food.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

Lovely pretty village, with a host of beautiful places to eat and drink. We tried the live music at the Ferryboat Inn, and had a lovely early evening looking out over the harbour from their beer garden. The shops were good quality, though during the off-season (October) I presume they have shorter opening hours (10-4 average) and some appeared closed. Everyone we met was very friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and refined.

Shaldon village life

Shaldon village hosts a variety of activities throughout the summer. There is a market on the village green in traditional costume every week and the well know water carnival where sand castle competitions and decorated boats abound. The highlight of the year has to be Shaldon Regatta, which takes place around the late summer bank holiday in August where everyone is welcome to enter and regatta boats are available if you don't have your own. Also five-a-side football, beach volleyball, swimming competitions and sandcastle competitions abound. Highly recommended.

Exmouth Beach (1 ¾ miles)

With its miles of golden sands and spine of lush rolling countryside, Exmouth Beach offers action and tranquillity in equal measures. Pick a quiet spot to take in the views and breathe in the fresh, salty air. Or, try your hand at one of the many sports you can play, from swimming to kite surfing to kayaking. Whether you are looking for a day of solo exploration or taking the whole family out for some coastal fun, there is truly something for everyone. Enjoying close proximity to lots of shops and facilities, Exmouth Beach provides the best of both worlds in the heart of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

Fantastic sandy beach

It's easy to park - with a long and short stay area, and a long prom - ideal for strolling as well as a good sandy beach. It's also easy to walk into the town for a change of scenery and a bite to eat. And there's mini-golf!

A la Ronde (2 ¾ miles)

English eccentricity at its inimitable best. In the 18th Century two spinster cousins, Jane and Mary Palmer, went on a grand tour of Europe. When they returned to England they had this quirky 16-sided house built and decorated the interior with a fascinating collection of mementoes from their travels. The shell-encrusted gallery is reputed to contain nearly 25,000 shells. Get into the spirit of things while you're here by dressing up as a Regency Lady or Victorian Gentleman.

Mrs Lloyd November 2010

A unique sixteen-sided house extraordinarily decorated with feathers, mirrors, seaweed, cut paper and shells. The house is full of personal detail and facinating items. The views of the Exe Estuary are stunning from the house and Garden

The Teign Ferry (5 ¼ miles)

One of England's oldest working ferries, the Teign Ferry provides a regular service between Teignmouth and Shaldon across a picturesque harbour estuary. The first recorded service across the Teign dates all the way back to the 10th Century.

The friendly seal

The Teign passenger ferry ploughs its way from Shaldon beach to Teignmouth and back just about every day of the year. It is great fun for the children and if you are lucky you might spy the friendly grey seal that pops its head up in the estuary from time to time. Look out for cormorants diving for fish and if the water ripples - then a whole shoal of mackerel or other small fish are under the surface.

There is a friendly local seal who often pops his head up to say hello to people using the ferry.

The Turf (4 miles)

A fascinating historical building on the River Exe canal, it is now a pub that has a large garden with the Exe Estuary on one side and Turf Locks on the other. The BBQ area can be hired for BBQ parties, catered or otherwise.

The seasonal passenger ( and bike ) ferry across the River Exe from Topsham to the stunning tow path along the other side - the goal being The Turf Hotel - a wonderful family and dog friendly pub with gardens and views right across the estuary to the sea. Order a jug of Pimms, book one of the in-situ barbecues and laze away a whole day ! One long table is set out on a little jetty of its own right over the water's edge. Lots of tidal mud at low tide - beware children in new shoes ! cheered by the Pimms let yourself be tempted in some of the gorgeous shops in Topsham's historic high street.
