Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Dittisham

Nestled on the western banks of the River Dart, Dittisham is undoubtedly one of South Devon’s most picturesque villages. Located in the area known as the South Hams, Dittisham holiday cottages sit between a lush, wooded hillside and a graceful riverfront, where fishing boats are moored. Sandy beaches, rocky coves, riverside walks and many of Devon’s most charming towns and villages are a stone’s throw from Dittisham. The village centre has a post office, two cosy pubs, a local shop and a waterfront café with a reputation for serving good food and coffee. Don’t leave your holiday cottage in Dittisham before taking the half-hour ferry ride through the lower reaches of the River Dart to the ancient port town of Dartmouth. Another passenger ferry runs between Dittisham and Greenway (Agatha Christie’s house) and can be summoned with the ring of a bell on the pontoon.

Self-catering holiday homes in Dittisham are perfect for taking long walks through the unspoilt countryside of South Devon. A particularly idyllic route starts by the Greenway Estate before meandering along the eastern bank of the Dart, passing the former Noss shipyard and ending in the village of Kingswear, on the opposite side of the river to Dartmouth, which can be reached by ferry and is well worth a visit for its independent shops, restaurants and museums. There are plenty of atmospheric places to eat and drink in and around Dittisham, including the Ferryboat Inn, which is popular among passing yachters, and the Anchorstone Café, which is well known for its fresh seafood.
