Dawlish Sands Holiday Park - Caravan Holidays

Why you’ll love this park...

  • Stunning coastal location with stunning Blue Flag beach close by
  • Beautifully refurbished clubhouse
  • A perfect base for exploring the county and its many attractions

Dawlish Sands Holiday Park occupies an enviable position within walking distance of a fabulous Blue Flag beach. The gently sloping golden sands of Dawlish Warren stretch out for more than 2 miles, providing an idyllic haven for swimming and splashing about.

Dawlish Sands is all about enjoying your Devon holiday the way that you want to. We have a heated indoor pool, a large sun patio and more - and it's only a short drive from Splashdown Quaywest Water Park and other fantastic local attractions.

Should you choose to stay on-site there's cabaret entertainment on most weekends, with plenty of great dining choices in the clubhouse - a complex which was extensively refurbished in 2020 - take a tour here. There's also full use of the many facilities at Golden Sands, our lively sister park nearby.

Dawlish Warren offers a warm welcome and more; we know what makes a perfect holiday in the South Devon region and our team will be more than happy to share the secret with our guests. (They might even have a few discount vouchers for popular local attractions under the desk, so don't be afraid to ask!)

The area of South Devon is renowned for its magnificent scenery with three designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a World Heritage Coast and over 125 miles of stunning coastline. The county also has two wonderful cities as well as an eclectic mixture of picturesque towns and villages to discover.

It's all here in the perfect Devon holiday hotspot!
