The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Messing about on the river doesn't get better than when you're staying in a Dittisham holiday cottage on the beautiful Dart Estuary.
Known locally as 'Ditsum', this exclusive little village is an absolute delight with Shinners Meadow at its centre and The Ham at the water's edge - a favourite spot for dog walkers. There's also a great little pub that not only looks after your thirst and appetite, but also your holiday essentials by way of a shop-cum-Post Office. Please find below our self catering holiday cottages near Dittisham, Devon.
Your Dittisham cottage is near the widest part of the Dart, making it a super area for sailing and kayaking. Two miles downstream brings you to Dartmouth (30 minutes by ferry), brimming with stylish boutiques, trendy galleries and wonderful places to eat and drink. Otherwise hop aboard a steam train, or explore the estuary's nooks and crannies on foot or bike. Fishing is fantastic too, with the chance to land a bass or go cockling at Flat Owers.
Across the river from Dittisham is Greenway (National Trust), the magnificent home of the late Agatha Christie - step inside to catch a fascinating glimpse of her private life and explore the beautiful gardens. Or pack a picnic hamper and head for Broadsands, a lovely sandy beach a short drive away.
What else? An annual sailing regatta and amazing local produce - Dittisham's famous plums, local wines, handmade cheeses and more - great for stocking those Dittisham holiday home cupboards!
So if relaxing by a river in a seriously sublime setting is top of your holiday wish list, book a cottage in Dittisham with Sykes today!
