Thanks MP . That was taken 2 yrs ago at Haven! Well, i am fat lol! And i do prefer beer to wine! Only other options really are exmouth(Never been here either) or Weymouth (again!) Has to be near a train station because i don't drive.
I have been to a holiday park in Dawlish called Welcome. It was nice. Dawlish is an ok place as a base. Huge beach. Kids loved it. There is a chav factor but not as much as other places. I have unwisely been on holiday e.g Great Yarmouth.
Is Hazelwood not quite far from the beach from memory?
Thanks Hedgehog. Welcome looks nice too. And around the same price. Have sent off for a brochure. Yes i think Hazelwood is close to the beach. Looks like welcome is pretty close too. Any ide if it is walking with luggage (and 4 DC!) distance?
Thanks tutu. Have looked into transport and there are trains to Dawlish and Exeter. Also 15th Aug is carnival week in Dawlish which includes a free air show on the 20th. Kids would enjoy that and i love the word 'Free'!
Welcome is a walk not far. I had a little toddler in a buggy and a 3 year old and it did not seem a trek (can't get my head round 4 kids as now have 3 and seems a tribe!). I think because of the way it is laid out there are no parks right next to the beach. It is very close to shops and restaurants etc.
