About 2 Dainton Elms

2 Dainton Elms is just outside Ipplepen, a village equidistant from the beautiful beaches of the English Riviera and the wild countryside and towering tors of Dartmoor National Park. It's a relaxed, family-friendly Devon holiday home sleeping six people in three bedrooms with a large garden and tranquil views. A host of amenities within walking distance include a village shop, pubs, Dainton Golf Club (no membership required), and the friendly Wellington Inn, whose Sunday carvery is worth booking in advance to ensure you don't miss out.

We can give you plenty of reasons why Ipplepen is such a great place to stay while you're in Devon. It's peaceful, being away from busy roads that can almost feel like you're exchanging one commute for another in the peak summer season. Although off the typical tourist trail, Ipplepen is still convenient for beaches and moors. You're less than six miles from Paignton, ten miles from Dartmoor National Park, and three miles from the supermarkets, shops and other amenities of Newton Abbot. Thirdly, Ipplepen is pretty, with views of lush rolling countryside and beautiful footpaths and places to ride your bike. We're sure you'll come up with even more reasons to love it once you've stayed here.

You'll certainly want to spend time at the beach, no matter what season you visit. Paignton is a family-favourite for the beach, the beachfront park, pier, and plentiful ice-cream shops. You'll be amazed at how much value a simple bucket and line will give - a few pounds will keep the kids happily crabbing off the harbour walls for hours. Torquay is a top all-weather day-out. When it's sunny, you can walk along the promenade, take a turn on the big wheel, and sun yourself on the sand. If it's raining, visit the museum or Dinosaur World, or treat yourself to a delicious seafront seafood meal. Babbacombe, Brixham, Anstey's Cove, Broadsands, and Ness Cove are other local beaches to visit.

Local attractions include Buckfast Abbey, Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, Agatha Christie's Greenway House, and the prehistoric caves of Kents Cavern. Take a sightseeing boat trip or book a guided tour of Dartmoor on foot, mountain bike or in a 4WD. There's far too much to squeeze into one stay that it's no surprise so many families make a self-catering holiday in Devon an annual event.
