It’s been quite a while since we mentioned the Camping Coaches at Dawlish Warren so here’s the update.
The new owners have been very busy updating the coaches and although they have stated that the main refurbishments are due for next year, they have done their best to refresh and renew the accommodation to make everyyone comfortable. To reflect the progress, they have held the prices for the coming year to match last year.
You can see from the photos that some of the coaches were in a terrible state and infact the previous owners had stated that they were beyond repair.
You can see that with a little bit of hard work and dedication that results can be achieved and that the future is looking good. The bogies have been shot blasted and repainted.
Underframes have been stripped back and treated with iron oxide paint before their final paint application.

I have to say thankfully that all the old mattresses have been replaced and they look like they needed to be.

The new owners are Brunel HolidayPark and they are now taking bookings for the upcoming season. They have a Facebook page or their own website if you want a full look at what they’ve got to offer. Bookings can be made by Email: [email protected] or by calling Abby on 07445173777
This really is an excellent opportunity to experience one of the local hidden treasures and i’d suggest you book fast if you want to get in.
Here are a couple of their videos of inside the coaches.
