Include a scenic drive when you go to Dawlish and Teignmouth. ALAN PAYLING

Alan Payling continues his occasional series about coastal resorts where he recommends the delights of an excursion to Dawlish and Teignmouth, which includes a drive through some of South Devon’s finest scenery

There’s a lot to be said for an excursion to Dawlish and/or Teignmouth when operators are on tour in places like Torbay or Exmouth. If you’re staying on the English Riviera, Dawlish and Teignmouth aren’t far away. From the popular Queen’s Hotel in Paignton it will take 36 minutes to cover the 11.4 miles to Teignmouth and 43 minutes to travel the 14.6 miles to Dawlish going via Shaldon. Also, in addition to the scenic coastal delights that make themselves apparent when travelling along the A379 that hugs the coast, drivers can enhance the journey by taking in other parts of Torbay’s coastline.
