Region Information

It is important to appreciate firstly that The Quay in Dittisham is accessed by one steep and narrow road (mostly one car width) only. Whilst it may be possible to park for a short period nearby to unload/load on arrival/departure this will be dependant on local tides and usage of the nearby pub and cafe. We advise guests to park at The Ham and carry luggage (preferably in small, soft bags not suitcases!) along The Quay to Quay Cottage. You can purchase weekly car parking tickets from the two car parks in Dittisham.
