Williams FamilySeptember 2017

We had a fantastic holiday at Dittiscombe. The location of the cottages is idyllic and allowed us a break of complete rest and relaxation. The cottages (Willows and Honeysuckle) contained everything we could need for our stay.  Ruth and Jon were friendly and helpful but also unobtrusive, giving us complete privacy. We will definitely return and also recommend the cottages to friends.
