Description

Situated in the heart of the charming village of Dittisham and enjoying extensive views across the village and the Dart estuary, this gorgeous 18th Century cottage, originally a farmhouse, provides extremely comfortable and attractive accommodation in this very desirable location. The property has the great advantage of a private driveway with ample parking (a rarity in Dittisham!), a secluded sloping orchard garden and most rooms benefit from the beautiful scenery, not least the spacious terrace that extends across the riverside of the house, a wonderful spot for breakfast on a sunny morning or a drink in the evening to enjoy the view and watch the busy life of the river. This is a superb house, cosy for a single family and big enough for two families holidaying together.

Dittisham

Perched on the banks of the River Dart, Dittisham is a pretty village with wonderful river views and just 6 miles from Dartmouth. Located in the popular South Hams area it is also in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within the village, you will find the Post Office and store, the Red Lion Inn, the Ferry Boat Inn and the Anchorstone Café.
