About the Blenheim

The Blenheim is an 18th century guest house set on the seafront in Dawlish. We have 11 en suite studio apartments that cater for Bed & Breakfast and self catering accommodation. The Blenheim has been in the family for over 50 years and prides itself on making every guest feel welcome.

The Owners Ali & Rick took over in August 2015 and have created a new bright and airy Breakfast room overlooking the sea and all 11 studio apartments have been recently decorated to a high standard with thoughtful decoration throughout.

The Blenheim occupies a prominent seafront position with most of our rooms benefiting from spectacular views of the sea. Dawlish town is within a 5 minute walk where you can find an array of tea shops, souvenir shops and eateries.
