Homelands, a most comfortable and attractive property, enjoys the best that the South Devon waterside village of Dittisham can provide. The cottage has secluded gardens with river views, gated parking, a large conservatory/playroom and is a real home from home in this outstanding waterside village. A short walk down the lane leads to a well-known waterside inn and the river pontoon where children can spend endless hours ‘crabbing’ and ferries ply the Dart from Dartmouth to Totnes. This is a superb area for those who enjoy messing around in boats, with plenty to do from river cruises, visits to local National Trust properties, walking the scenic footpaths on both sides of the river and Dartmoor is within an easy drive. This is an idyllic setting for a memorable holiday in the South Hams.
