Dog-friendly Self Catering Cottages for South Devon Summer Holidays
Find your pretty self-catering holiday cottage at Dittiscombe Holiday Cottages, a collection of six stone cottages located in the heart of the South Hams area of South Devon.
Just a 10 minute drive (50 minute walk) from the stunning dog-friendly beaches of Start Bay and the historic village of Slapton. We are near the South West Coast Path and the pretty estuary towns of Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.
Our individual cottages are surrounded by an exclusive valley of woodland and meadows, each has a lovely garden, free Wifi and some have woodburners and spa baths. Our family cottages sleep 4-6 guests: Willows, Rafters, Dovecote, Buddleia ; and our couples’ cottages are Honeysuckle and The Owlery.
Many of our returning guests come for the peace and tranquillity we offer, for the freedom to safely walk with children and dogs from the cottage door around our private conservation valley, and to visit and explore all that the South Hams has to offer.
The beautiful beaches and estuaries of this area are ideal for Summer Holidays, playing with the dog, surfing and swimming. Slapton Ley is a 10 minute drive from Dittiscombe and during the Summer Holidays you’ll find free nature safaris suitable for families.
Easy days out might include a visit to the beach at South Milton near Thurlestone where there are rockpools to play in and the Beach House for fresh fish lunches and refreshments. Mill Bay opposite Salcombe is always popular with families with small children, a ride on the steam railway from Totnes to Buckfastleigh, or a play day at Woodlands Leisure Park near Dartmouth.

“The cottage was in an idyllic setting so beautiful and quiet. It felt very remote but was only a 10 min drive to the coast. It was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.”
