Traditional Family-Run Homes and Seafront B&Bs, Dawlish

There's just something so right about staying in a B&B when you're along the British coast and the bed and breakfasts in Dawlish won't disappoint. These veritable homes away from home offer cosy guestrooms, seaside-inspired decor and welcoming hosts, many of whom have been running their B&Bs for years and know the best things to do and see in the area. If you think a B&B is the right fit for your break, fire up Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is search by location, date and budget, scan through the listings and book in just a few clicks. Arranging your seaside break just got a whole lot easier. There are plenty to choose from, too. Some are traditional little B&Bs which, charmingly, haven't changed all that much over the years and offer the budget traveller more than expected for the price. Then there are the swish seafront properties, whose guestrooms look out over the ocean. You'll even find some country cottages and converted farmhouses, if you'd rather stay outside the town. Whichever you pick, you're always assured of a comfortable stay when you book your accommodation through Expedia.

Checking into your Dawlish bed and breakfast is always a simple process, thanks to your friendly hosts. While you're settling into your guestroom you can start to make use of the facilities, which often include everything you might expect from a hotel, like a flat-screen TV on the wall, free WiFi and a kettle for making hot drinks. Some may have ensuite bathrooms, while more budget B&Bs will have shared facilities. Whether you're looking for a double, a twin or a family-sized room to accommodate the kids, you'll always find what you're looking for on Expedia. Take some time to chat with the owners, who always have great recommendations on the best things to do and places to eat. Come daybreak, you can wake up to views over the ocean and enjoy a proper English breakfast, or lighter options, like cereal and toast, washed down with coffee. If you're not looking for a seaside break, how about spending a few nights getting stuck into things to do in Bristol instead?

Family Fun on the Beach and Coastal Hiking Trails Near Your B&B, Dawlish

During the summer months, couples and families staying in Dawlish bed and breakfasts make a dash for the nearest beach, to spend their days working on their tans and cooling off in the English Channel. It's particularly great for kids, who can run wild building sandcastles and rock pooling. Don't worry if you're not a beach-goer. You could always lace up your boots to go hiking along the coastal paths or rent a bicycle and go cycling along the country lanes. Alternatively, if you've brought your binoculars, make a dash for the Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve to catch a glimpse of the nesting coastal birds. Back in town, you'll find no shortage of places to grab a bite to eat and there are enough independent boutiques to satisfy even the pickiest of shoppers.
