The Cottages at Dittiscombe
Find your perfect holiday cottage from six pretty stone barns and gardens near Slapton which are tucked away in an exclusive South Devon valley.
They all have gardens and views and exclusive access to our unique 20-acre conservation valley. Each cottage has been sympathetically converted from old stone barns, part of a larger farm called Dittiscombe Hills, and they nestle in the valley at the end of a private lane.
They are individually laid out, decorated and furnished to a Visit England 4 star rating. There are thick stone walls, exposed beams and recessed windows, feature fireplaces, slate, wood or ceramic flooring, providing a homely setting all year round.
Five are dog-friendly: Willows, Rafters, Buddleia, Dovecote and Honeysuckle. Please note we do not permit pets to be left unattended in the cottages, unless by special arrangement. The Owlery is our romantic cottage for 2 and is pet-free.
Outside the cottages have individual, private gardens with lawns, flower and shrub borders, gravel patios, garden furniture with access to the 20 acres of private valley and lovely views. Some gardens are fully enclosed, but please see more information on the individual cottage pages.
