Little Mermaid Cottage
Comfort • Style • Coastal Life
Little Mermaid cottage is situated in the heart of Dawlish, just a stones throw away from local pubs, convienence stores, cafe's and much more.
Five minutes walk to the left of the cottage you have the Manor Gardens which is a beautiful park ideal for picnic's or to just laze about with your cream tea's! watching the day go by. Even the little ones will be entertained with the space to run about and the play park at the top of the path.
To the right of the cottage you are at the top of the historic town centre and as you make your way down there are a number of chain and independant shops you can browse in. Also there is the lawned area which plays host to many events including the annual dawlish carnival week!
Once down at the sea front, you can enjoy the extensive picturesque shoreline in both directions. To the left, a leisurely sea wall walk takes you to the famed long sandy bathing beaches of Dawlish Warren, skirting the entrance of the Exe Estuary, and its nature reserve full of rare flowers, unusual birds and hidden ponds. To the right takes you to Coryton Cove, along the famous 'atmospheric' railway line, past the bright row of beach huts and to the Edwardian gentleman's sandy bathing bay, complete with a small cafe and interesting rockpools to explore.
Dawlish is also approximately 9 miles from the historic city of Exeter and a 15 minute drive to the gateway of Dartmoor and all the fascinating places this has to offer. Teignmouth is further along the coast, as are the renowned Dartmouth, Torquay and Brixham areas.
