Leat Cottage has a south-west aspect with extending views of the countryside set in a beautiful valley two miles from the sea. The valley is home to herons, egrets, deer, pheasants, buzzards, kestrels, tawny owls, barn owls and badgers which are regularly seen (and heard) from Leat Cottage. It’s a little bit of rural heaven!

It is less than two miles (45 mins walk) to Dawlish along pretty country lanes. We've had many guests who have happily relied on public transport to explore the South West during their stay.

The cottage is situated close to the long stretching beach of Dawlish Warren, a classic seaside holiday resort and world famous for bird watching. Dawlish and Dawlish Warren offer all the amenities you would expect from a seaside town with the added bonus of secluded spots to hide away from the world and enjoy the sand dunes and view over the sea. Ask Adam about the good bass fishing spots!

Just up the road Ashcombe Adventure Centre offers a range of outdoor activities such as quad biking and clay pigeon shooting.

Nearby Haldon Forest Park has an excellent range of mountain bike trails (plus bike hire), horse riding, Go Ape and a cafe - something for everyone.

Teignmouth offers a Victorian pier, lido, play park, crazy golf and skate park all within easy reach of the beaches and town centre and only 15-20 minutes’ drive from Leat Cottage.
