The Old Barn, Shutterton Lane, Dawlish
The Old Barn is a detached cottage situated to the north of Dawlish which offers tranquility but not isolation. It is within easy reach of the beach, golf course and nature reserve at Dawlish Warren and a short distance from the old fishing village of Cockwood and the estuary village of Starcross. Cockwood enjoys a quaint village environment with two well regarded pubs and an excellent primary school. The coastal resort of Dawlish lies 1.5 miles distant and offers a range of shops, schools, churches, pubs and a variety of other amenities. The recently opened Sainsburys store is conveniently located approximately half a mile away.
There is excellent public transport with Dawlish having a mainline railway station on the Paddington to Penzance line and offers a regular service to the university and cathedral city of Exeter which is 10 miles to the north and has an excellent range of facilities and amenities. Exeter International Airport lies 4 miles to the east of the city. In addition the property is located just off the National Cycle Network which provides a level and delightful route to Exeter along the estuary and canal right to the Quay in the city.
