The property

The Folly holds a prime spot overlooking the grass tennis court and rolling Devon countryside beyond.

This unique holiday home offers guests a tranquil getaway right in the heart of the beautiful South Hams.

Cosy up in front of the woodburning stove, sinking into the plush sofas as you get lost in a good book or while away the afternoon on the dock alongside the babbling brook.

The Folly is the perfect place for romance and to get away from it all.

Set across two floors, The Folly has a sumptuous ground-floor bedroom with a light, bright living space above.

Benefitting from a king-size bed, freestanding bathtub, and a riverboat cuddle chair, it is truly a splendid haven for those looking to relax.

From the rear, you may even spot the occasional otter, small brown trout in the stream or a kingfish swooping past!

Upstairs, discover the compact but well-equipped self-catering kitchen, boasting its own balcony, a sun-filled sitting room with woodburning stove and a delightful balcony with views out to the tennis courts, gardens and rolling Devon hills.

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.
