Hope you are not shivering too much! We have got off lightly here with only a sprinkling of snow - so far.  Anyway looking forwards... I have just updated the tariff, as usual up a few pence here and there.  We have kept the increase to a minimum but unfortunately the Chancellor always seems to want more - VAT up by 2.5% in 2011!  In fact everything just keeps on going up!

As soon as you know your holiday dates do give us a ring - we will be pleased to hear from you and look forward to seeing next summer.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Andrew and Sarah

Well that is another great season over and we have had a good tidy up here.  The grass is already looking really good following a few good downpours.

The end of season Bank Holiday fireworks were great despite dodgy weather!

We open on Friday 10th June and close 4th September 2011 so hopefully will see you sometime in the season.

Dates for your diary: Carnival week is 13th - 21st August and the Warren Fireworks will be on Thursday 25th August.

Thanks for staying with us this season.  Sarah and I hope you have a good winter and look forward to seeing you all again in 2011!

26 August 2010

Wow - where has August gone!  Carnival and Airshow last week which was a great week for locals and visitors alike - weather was mixed but stayed dry most of the time.  Tonight is the fireworks display at the Warren - 10 minutes of airborne spledour!  You should be able to see it on the webcam - link above.

We are getting ready for a busy Bank Holiday - we are pretty much full now but you can always ring to see if we have any cancellations.  Then the following weekend it is the build up to the Tour of Britain with the charity rides - why not stay here with us if you are coming to take part - special offer £10 for 2 people per night on Sat and Sun 4/5 Sept.?

We have the bunting up - just need some cyclists.....tour of britain bunting

Jack in bedAnd if you were wondering why Bertie and Jack have not been "on duty" recently ...well Jack is finding life all too much with the heat this summer and would rather stay in bed at home!

Dawlish Warren Tourism have commissioned a great film on Dawlish Warren... Check it out:

 

7 August 2010

Just 7 days to go until Carnival week starts - we have programmes in Reception (£2.50 each).  As usual there is a week long programme of events - something for everyone!  The raft race, pram race and Grand Procession are but just 3 of the highlights.  The Airshow has become a great event over the last few years with around 80,000 people coming to town to see the Red Arrows, etc.  The Helicopters will be on the Green at Dawlish Warren on Airshow Day - Thursday 20th Aug.

Websites: www.dawlishcarnival.co.uk and www.dawlishairshow.co.uk

Looking ahead to the Bank Holiday we are not far off from being full so if you are thinking about coming give us a call asap!  Remember we have 3 special offers: "6 nts for the price of 5" from Sat 21 - Fri 27.  And then "4 nts for the price of 3" from 31/8 to 5/9.  Then a very special offer for our last weekend to celebrate the Tour of Britain cycle ride: £10/nt for a couple with tent/motorhome. See Tariff page for details.

21 July 2010

The site is in tiptop condition (again) following the showers over the last week.  We are all ready for the start of the main season on Saturday with a good forecast given.  Look forward to meeting all or "regulars" and lots of "new to camping" folk too.

15 July 2010

Well we got the rain...!  The grass is certainly looking greener now - hopefully we'll be back to sunshine in the not too distant future.  One recent visitor dropped a folder into Reception with "7 Dawlish Walks" and they are jolly good to.  I have uploaded them so you can print them off, and we will have a few copies in Reception.  I am going to laminate a set of leaflets for visitors to look at when in the Laundrette.

                                                   "7 Dawlish Walks" HERE

9 July 2010

We could do with some rain... did I really just say that!  Overnight would be perfect, just to get some colour back into the grass...  Tomorrow is a big day down at the Warren with the Spirit of the Exe "Exe-Travaganza" festival.  Loads to see and do and it's all FREE! Come on down. Come by train if you are local and enjoy a pint or two....  Sounds good to me - pity I am working!

Below are some pics I've taken around the site in the last couple of weeks - some in the morning sun and some in the evening sun...

21 June 2010

  Great news for all you "connected campers"!! We now have WiFi service available for a small charge:

£1 - 1 hour

£5 - 24 hours

£10 - 7 days

£20 - 1 month

I walked around the site this morning with my laptop and got connected everywhere - how did we manage without the internet....

Really busy again this weekend with 1 and 2 nighters coming from all directions.  What is apparent is that our low season special offer - 7 nights for the price of 5, has captured your imagination.  It runs until 23rd July so still plenty of time to grab a week of glorious Devon camping /touring at bargain prices!

12 June 2010

Hooray we are open!  And what a great start - plenty of visitors; regulars and newbies, on our first day and really hot weather - what more could you ask?  It was really great to see a couple of our "old" regulars from Bristol now back in touring mode with a motorhome.  "Welcome home" T and C!

It was a bit frantic this week getting the site ready for one reason or another, anyway Bertie was on hand overseeing the final tidy up - see pic!

As I mentioned last week bookings are coming in nicely and we have vacancies for all weeks - give us a call.

 

3 June 2010

Just over a week to go and we are all getting excited here - the site looks fantastic, "Best ever" in fact (I say that every year....!)  Bertie and Jack have been helping us and to be honest they have struggled with the heat this week - yes glorious sunshine and cloudless skies.  Bookings are coming in thick and fast but we still have vacancies for all weeks - get yours in.  Give Sarah a ring for latest availability.

See you in the summer, and many of you on our "opener", especially the "Bristols"!

30 April 2010

The site is coming along nicely and should be in tip-top condition for June 11th!!  I have changed our weather forecast provider service today.  I was lucky enough to visit the Met Office in Exeter recently - wow, they've got some gear there!  Supercomputers or what...  They have a great new piece of "real time" forecasting which anyone can access - I have added a link to it from the WEATHER page - have a look at exactly what has been happening in the last few hours and a very accurate forecast.  I have also added the MetOffice "app" to my iphone - it really is the most accurate forecast I have ever used!!  On the subject of weather let's hope the usual Leadstone forecast of "Hot and Sunny til September" rings true for 2010...

19 March 2010

The Spirit of the Exe festival family day on Sat 10 July is taking shape nicely.  The Quails band are rounding the afternoon off at the Boathouse.  They are an up and coming local band who have supported MUSE in the past.  Their webpage is here.

11 March 2010

The What's On page has been updated today and will be added to as the season moves on - keep an eye on it.

18 February 2010

Teignmouth plays host to, and welcomes the "Lark Nationals" sailing championships in July - looks like great fun "messing about in boats", or I should say sailing dinghies...  Whether you are competing or supporting the event we will be pleased to welcome you - NO charge for trailers! Check out their website www.larkclass.org

21 January 2010

Happy New Year!  Thanks for all the Christmas cards!  We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.  The weather has been "interesting" to say the least - snow at Leadstone, and so close to the salty sea air - amazing!

Your bookings are coming in on a daily basis for what promises to be a great summer - don't forget you can call 01626 864411 between 8.30am and 9pm, do leave a message if the answerphone is on.  Remember the deposit is as little as £20!

A couple of dates for your diary... The "Spirit of the Exe Festival" on Saturday 10th July - this looks like being a huge family day out at the Warren. See details HERE.

The annual Fireworks Spectacular, again on Thursday 26th August just before August Bank Holiday - make it a long weekend!
