Sniff Out the Neighbourhood
There are so many wonderful walks from Dawlish Warren you won’t know where to start. Fortunately, the town council have made a handy guide of local walks to point you in the right direction.
Why not start with Dawlish itself? The Dawlish Town Trail is perfect for exploring this quaint, old place. It’s been around for centuries so there are lots of fascinating things to discover. The guide covers the town and nearby points of interest, such as the National Nature Reserve and the Exe Estuary.
When you’re ready to venture further afield there are plenty of walks to get everyone’s tails wagging. The coastal footpath to Teignmouth offers a wonderful variety – rolling fields, picturesque woodland and, of course, glorious sea views.
For something different head for Decoy Country Park. It’s not far from Dawlish Warren and everyone will be spoilt for choice here. The woodland walks and grassy spaces are ideal for letting off steam – preferably at top speed. When you’re ready for a breather there are plenty of tranquil spots to picnic, relax and feed the ducks. If you fancy a bit more action, there’s windsurfing, a zip line, a play area and a BMX track, so no one is left out.
Shaldon village is a lovely, tranquil spot if you prefer something quieter. The locals pride themselves on being particularly dog friendly, and it’s easy to see why. Visit Ness Cove, with its spectacular red cliffs or chase balls along the estuary at low tide. There’s a car park, cafe and small wildlife zoo, and dogs are always welcome.
Spy Missions and Treasure Trails – Woof Woof …
Now, this is seriously good fun and an amazing way to explore the area. Download the handy guide and follow the clues to learn more about your surroundings.
You could start with the Dawlish Spy Mission Trail, but there’s plenty more to choose from – Murder Mystery in Exmouth, a Treasure Trail in Newton Abbot and lots more. Learn about the area, get busy walking and get some exercise – great for furry friends and all their humans.
South Devon has loads of these – adventure parks and zoos, museums and galleries, awesome beaches and wonderful woodland. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started.
Cockington village has an amazing Craft Centre with glassblowers, painters, jewellery makers and a chocolatier – yum yum! There’s a play area and sweeping parkland for some serious stick throwing.
For something different check out the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey. A glassworks, loads of marble-themed activities (weird but wonderful) and hidden amusements will give you plenty to do. There’s even a snoring bear! It sounds mad and probably is, but you’ll all love it anyway.
