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.

An idyllic location and if you are taking your dog there is no place better. Fenced gardens for them to run in and beautiful walks from your doorstep. This was my fourth visit and will definitely return.
