This is a real gem of an asset for Dawlish. Not only for those of us who live here but also for those visiting at the nearby holiday parks. Whilst I know that other areas will have SANGS (which is what this countryside park is) nontheless perhaps this park could become, locally, Dawlish's unique selling point?
