  • "The cottage is very pleasant and comfortable."

    It is in a good location as long as you are fit and able but it is an impossible location for anyone with any accessibility issues. The listing states that the car park is close by but absolutely fails to mention that it is at the top of a very steep hill with a very narrow road. As there is no parking at the location and car access is difficult, the car left in the car park means that a very gruelling walk is needed to get too and from the car. This is virtually impossible with luggage or for anyone with accessibility issues, but this is not made clear. If you are fit and able it is a great location but if not then I recommend you avoid this cottage. PS All my dealings with Sykes have been excellent, over a number of years, with really helpful, patient and friendly staff.

    There are 2 car parks in the village and the 1 on the Ham is an easier and shorter route which means only walking past 2 houses before turning right, we apologise if you were not informed of this route. There is no need to drag luggage as the norm is to drive to the cottage to unload and load then drive away or park. This is accepted by all people in the village and happily wait while people does this. The advantage to being at the lower end of the village means you are closer to the water, ferries to Dartmouth and Greenways, the restaurant and the pub. We are pleased that Mr Sylvester found the cottage pleasant and comfortable Property Owner

About the location


  • Dartmouth 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 Anchorstone Café for a spot of lunch 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 activities, there are sailing schools and boat hire also paddle board 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.
