    “The property itself was exactly how it was advertised by you.”


    It suited our family break having 3 double bedrooms with ensuite, plus another room with twin beds. I did not expect to go into the kitchen and have to wipe all the cabinets doors, as they were sticky and dirty. The freezer compartment had bits of food particles in it. There was also a cup of used cooking oil on the side! Some of the glassware also needed rewashing. Dead flies/insect between windows and shutters. Smeary mirrors and glass bannisters. Muddy shelving in utility. Bits and dust under cabinets.

The property

On the edge of Dittisham, in a fabulous position high on a hill, is this lovely modern house.

With amazing views over the beautiful Dart estuary and elegant décor, it is relaxing and magnificent accommodation for older families and groups of friends.

Steps lead down to the front door and your smart sitting room where your eye will be drawn to the windows which form the front wall of the house, letting in lots of light and views of the river, and which you can open to the patio to bring the outside in.

On cooler days, gather around the lovely cosy wood burning stove or cook together in the sleek kitchen with its traditional Aga, preparing meals to enjoy in the dining area with its big table.

Up a step from the kitchen is a useful ground floor twin bedroom, and you will find the other three bedrooms upstairs, all en suite and with fantastic views of the Dart estuary.

One of the doubles opens to a balcony where you can step out in your pyjamas for early morning vistas.

The vast patio along the width of the house is almost another outdoor room in itself, with its table and chairs for alfresco meals and leisurely sundowners looking over the water.

A steep path winds down through the garden, a fun place to explore with its garden room where you can sit and prepare drinks and nibbles in the little kitchen area and two ponds with lily pads.

From the bottom of the garden, head through the gate which takes you to the heart of the village with its two friendly pubs, shop and jetty where you can catch crabs and board the pedestrian ferry to Greenway where Agatha Christie once lived and which is now managed by the National Trust.

This is boating country, where you can hire vessels, moor dinghies and join the sailing school for some tuition.

Blackpool Sands is a stunning beach, a curve of turquoise water and golden sand.

Dartmouth is an old and fashionable town where shopaholics will love the boutiques and galleries, or you can play golf at the Country Club.

With beautiful scenery and lots to enjoy in the area, Dove Cottage is an outstanding holiday home for a Devon break.

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.
