Running along the sea wall on the Exeter-to-Plymouth line, trains arriving and leaving the seaside resort of Dawlish Warren treat holiday-makers to an spectacular journey. And when you disembark, it's just as good: surrounded by beautiful south Devon countryside, the tourist-friendly town has Blue Flag beaches and holiday parks that heave with happy visitors, particularly during the summer. Great Western Railway pieced Dawlish Warren station together from 1873 to 1912, when it finally opened to passengers. Since then there has been little let-up - visitors still come for fun and frolics at the local holiday parks, and for the outstanding natural environment, with the Nature Reserve the perfect spot for amateur botanists and bird watchers. After a long day rock-pooling or twitching, a typical Devonian welcome awaits in the B&Bs, restaurants and bars, which all serve up a good dose of traditional English meals and hospitality.
