Beautiful Self-catering Holiday Cottages nestle in a tranquil South Devon valley near Dartmouth and Salcombe…

Our six stone cottages nestle in the valley at the end of a private lane. They have been sympathetically renovated from farm buildings and are individually decorated and furnished. There are thick stone walls, exposed beams and recessed windows, feature fireplaces, slate, wood or ceramic flooring, providing a homely setting all year round. Willows, Rafters, Buddleia, Dovecote and Honeysuckle are all dog-friendly. We keep The Owlery as our pet free cottage.

All our cottages have a private garden, some fully enclosed, and guests have exclusive access to twenty acres of conservation valley and woodlands for walking on site. The historic village of Slapton is just 2.5 miles away, home to the Slapton Ley freshwater lake which is great for wildlife watching, and two pubs serving good local food and drink.
Dittiscombe is in the heart of the South Hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty in South Devon, which stretches from Dartmoor in the north to an unspoilt coastline in the south. There are award-winning beaches, coves and river estuaries nearby, many of which are dog-friendly, ideal for kayaking and watersports, and there’s great walking along the South West Coast Path. The picturesque sailing towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are all a short drive away.
All our cottages all have Wifi, digital freeview TVs, some have woodburners and spa baths, and five are dog-friendly.
We are in an ideal location to explore the area on foot or by car. Have a car-free day out and take the 50-minute green lane walk to historic Slapton village with its two excellent dog-friendly pubs, and visit the nature trail and freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. Or drive to Dartmouth to see it’s cobbled streets, ancient buildings, and the fabulous view over the harbour, taking in the beautiful beach of Blackpool Sands along the way.
