SITUATION : 8 Haldon Terrace is situated in the charming seaside town of Dawlish which sits on the picturesque stretch of coastline between the estuaries of the Rivers Exe and Teign. Originally a small fishing village Dawlish has blossomed into a thriving coastal town with the coming of the railway in 1846 when Isambard Kingdom Brunel built his famous line from Exeter to Torbay. The town has an excellent variety of facilities and amenities including leisure centre and heated swimming pool, public playing fields, tennis court, bowling green, schools and places of worship. There are plenty of maritime pursuits in the locality. The town is surrounded by hills and countryside which are popular with walkers, cyclists and riders. Regular buses and trains allow easy access to Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Torbay and the city of Exeter to the north.
The university and cathedral city of Exeter (12 miles) has excellent amenities befitting a city of its importance including shopping, dining, theatre and sporting facilities. To the east lies Exeter International Airport. Approximately 12 miles away lies Dartmoor National Park famed for its thousands of square miles of unspoilt scenery with many opportunities for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits.
