The heart of Dawlish Warren is accessible to all, it is just a short distance through our grounds and on the coastal path before you reach the arcades, ice cream stalls, privately owned shops, green and of course magnificent views.
Access to the beach is via the steps, or via a large ramp, which you can see in front of the Beach Huts, in the picture below, making it accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Dawlish Warren is a blue flag beach with a mixture of sand and shingles and popular with both locals and tourists. Lifeguards are present during the main summer season. Dogs are permitted on the beach between Groynes 3 and 9 all year round.
There is open access to the majority of the nature reserve, with the visitor centre normally open from 10.30am – 5.00pm (closed 1.00pm – 2.00pm). An area of grassland and sand dunes, this is the perfect place for a slow stroll and birdwatching. Dogs are permitted in some areas and must be on a lead.
Bike hire is available from Exe Trail Cycle Hire located at The Velo Shack www.exetrailcyclehire.co.uk
The Langstone Hotel is located on the south coast of Devon, right on the doorstep of Dawlish Warren Beach.
It is set within 19 acres of woodlands, lawns and gardens, so the views are remarkable wherever you are in the grounds.
