Manor Cottage is an exceptionally spacious and well-presented period house, with a large level garden and allocated off road parking for 2 cars. Nestled beneath the St Georges church in the popular village of Dittisham, Manor Cottage forms part of the original Manor House built in the mid 1800’s. This comfortably home from home has 4 bedrooms one of which has an ensuite bathroom, a good-sized kitchen dining room, an enormous and a conservatory.

Dittisham must be one of the prettiest waterside villages in Devon and has long been a mecca for those who enjoy sailing, boating and just generally messing about on the water. The village is lively, particularly during the summer months, with a village shop and two good pubs, one on the waterside, where the quay is a favourite spot for crabbing and a tug on a bell rope calls the ferry boatman to collect you to visit Greenway, once Agatha Christie’s holiday home, and now part of the National Trust.

The nearby naval town of Dartmouth and the bohemian town of Totnes are both nearby, easily reached by car or indeed by passenger ferry which runs up and down the River Dart during the summer months.

All in all, Manor Cottage provides a very comfortable base from which to enjoy and explore this wonderfully picturesque and unspoilt part of Devon.
