Dear Dawlish. Com contributors. Elvis Presley died on Friday morning, as a result of a life most can only dream of. Love him or hate him, Elvis helped to care for his wife of 52 years, for the last 7 years.  This undoubtedly shortened his remaining days, but he wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The discussions and characters on here gave him many a chuckle during some very ...

I commute 6.45am and am in exeter on average within 25/30 mins, leaving Exeter around 4pm to come home with a similar sort of return journey time.

Ive looked at Exmouth but house prices are much more and also not alot of choice.  My commuting hours will be 6am so should beat the traffic and also return around 6.30 so should be coming the other way to all the seaside day trippers anyway.

So much negativity about Dawlish. Move to Dawlish. I don't drive and manage to love it here and get around. Trains are good unless you want to come back really late. Getting into Exeter is easy by train. Buses are expensive though. If you drive you won't have a problem getting anywhere so come live in Dawlish.

If you are walking on the sea wall, then yes, it is noisy when a train passes, but that is only for a few seconds. As for being on the beach, it is a 'noise' that you get used to and it doesnt bother you after a while. Also, it draws many people in when the steam trains go through in the season.
