Dawlish: A perfect seaside location

Dawlish: A perfect seaside location

While young people may favour places in the UK where they can enjoy a vibrant and lively nightlife and the opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy, there are also many older people, perhaps pensioners, who still see the opportunity of moving to the coast and one of England's many seaside resorts as a great way to spend their latter years.

The perfect location for this can be found in the picturesque coast of Devon, and by people looking for property for sale in Dawlish. Dawlish itself is a former small fishing port on the coast, which later developed into a popular seaside town, with many holidaymakers descending on it every year in order to take in some British summer sun. Due to its tourist history, the location has only 12,000 or so residents. This makes it ideal for people who want a peaceful coastal retreat to which they can retire.

One of the most positive aspects of Dawlish is that it offers some excellent transport links to other places around England. Because of the fact that it is a seaside town, the local train station, located in the centre of the town, offers some great links to places all through Devon, as well as trains to London, meaning that older residents who are looking for the chance to take a day away from Dawlish to indulge in shopping or sightseeing need not feel isolated.

Because of its location, the town was also popular with many famous faces in the past. Authors Charles Dickens and Jane Austen are both known to have enjoyed trips to Dawlish, and these visits can be read about, as well as many other important moments from the Devon town's history, by those who take time to visit the local museum and other sites of culture.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801346594-ADNFCR
