  • "Although we were aware that work, was going on in the next property we were advised that outside work should be completed and most likely only internal work taking place Not so."

    A cement mixer, a digger and small truck were all operational during our stay. We were in fact staying next to a building site. Obviously the tranquility of this beautiful place was ruined O

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that the building work next door to our property had such an impact on your holiday. We were unaware that the work had started up again, apologies for this as this was completely out of our control. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful, very comfortable and well equipped house with stunning views of the water and Dittisham."

    Only suggestion would be an outdoor washing line to dry wetsuits and beach clothes etc on, and maybe a barbecue. Very pretty gardens too and professional service from Bespoke Devon who look after the property.

  • "No extra bin bags ..."

    No extra bin bags No dishwasher tablets, No clingfilm, kitchen foil or kitchen roll no shower gel in any bathroom and no decent hand-wash

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic an anti-bacterial handwash is now left in the property. Additional items like clingfilm, kitchen foil and kitchen roll are not provided. We apologise that there were no dishwasher tablets or extra bin bags left, this was an oversight as normally they are provided. Should you have made us aware during your stay the housekeeping team would have been delighted to rectify this. They provide their contact details in advance in case anything like this should arise. Apart from this we do hope that you enjoyed your holiday at this lovely property, along with the location and the wonderful views. Property Owner

The property

Woodwater is a true delight of a property, sitting above the River Dart in the estuarine village of Dittisham, amongst the rolling verdant hills of South Devon Countryside and riverside views. Woodwater offers superb accommodation for a group of up to twelve.

A reverse-level cottage providing guests with views across the village to the estuary beyond, its exterior and contemporary living inside, makes it a wonderful escape for those in pursuit of an idyllic location, with a wide range of amenities just a short trip away.

The bright and airy open-plan living space is spread out on the ground floor, with plenty of space for everyone to gather together around the dining table for a celebratory meal, or to split off into groups, with ample seating to relax in the sitting area around the solid fuel stove, or sit around one of the tables for a family evening of board games.

The kitchen area is a particular marvel, with a large island at its centre offering plenty of space for little helpers to get involved or for the adults of the group to gather and toast a wonderful holiday, it makes a wonderful social spot as well as hosting a range of high-quality appliances to assist you in all of your self-catering requirements.

Moving down to the ground-floor you can find the four bedrooms accompanied by a selection of bathrooms to prepare for your day; the two master bedrooms are made up as double rooms with super king-size beds and both have their own smart en-suite shower rooms, perfect for the adults and couples of the group.

The remaining two bedrooms are made up as a family room with two bunk beds, something the little ones will delight at and a further twin room, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for a variety of group needs.

Each of the bedrooms benefit from a stylish and contemporary interior, as well as ample storage space and access to the outdoor terrace areas.

On the lower-ground-floor you will find a convenient cloakroom, a wetroom and a bathroom, offering plenty of choice for you to begin your day.

Outside the wonder continues, where you will find a large lawned area where you can sit out with your loved ones in the summer months and dine alfresco, or pack up a picnic and head out into the local village of Dittisham for a stroll and admire the beauty of the River Dart.

The local area offers the amenities of a shop and pub and Greenway National Trust Property a few minutes away on passenger ferry from Dittisham.

Nearby Dartmouth boasts a wider range of attractions including its imposing castle, Bayard's Cove Fort and its enticing museum, or venture to Blackpool Sands and Bantham Beach for a day of sun soaking and sandcastle building.

Further afield you can find both the coastal towns of Paignton and Torquay, both offering excitement of all kinds in the form of a zoo, historic landmarks, golfing opportunities and much more at any time of year.

Woodwater is a superb property to call home whilst holidaying in the South Hams area of Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Darmouth 3.5 miles; Totnes 7 miles.

Dittisham is a picturesque village surrounded by rolling countryside, located on the banks of the River Dart in the South Hams. Wander along the quiet streets lined with quaint, stone cottages and lush gardens, until you reach the waterfront. Dittisham’s quayside is often regarded as the hub of village activity. Stop at the Anchorside Café for a spot of breakfast – while taking in the fantastic river views. Try your hand at some crabbing with the kids on the dinghy pontoon. Visit the iconic pink Ferry Boat Inn (or FBI as it is known locally). Ring the bell for the ferry and head across the Dart to Greenway, the once holiday home of the renowned Agatha Christie. For outdoor activity, there are sailing schools and canoe hire, as well as plenty of scenic walks. The harbour town of Dartmouth is just a short drive away or ferry away, and offers an array of shops, a cinema, plenty of restaurants and even a castle. Further afield, you will find plenty of fantastic beaches such as Blackpool and Slapton Sands, as well as key destinations such as Salcombe, Totnes, and Brixham to explore.
