Dog-friendly Self Catering Cottages for South Devon Holidays
Bring the children, bring the dog, and enjoy a summer holiday at Dittiscombe Hills Estate, a rural retreat in the exclusive South Hams area of South Devon
Dittiscombe is a historic hamlet of six self-catering cottages and Farmhouse, all nestling within a beautiful South Devon private conservation valley. We are located in the heart of the South Hams, much of which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, renown for its gentle rolling landscapes, stunning beaches, rivers and estuaries, great walking routes and watersports.
Nearby there is Agatha Christie’s Summer residence, owned by the National Trust; the South Devon Steam Railway which takes you through a stunning valley setting beside the River Dart; and the pretty sailing towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth which are both within a 30 minute drive.
So much to explore and experience within the South Hams, you’ll find lots to discover whatever your interests.
Our nearest village, Slapton, has ancient roots going back to the Bronze Age and is just a 10-minute drive away. Beside the village sits the National Nature Reserve of Slapton Ley, an ideal spot for nature safaris, canoeing and bird watching, The stunning dog-friendly beaches of Start Bay will draw you to the sea and a walks along the South West Coast Path.
Although Dittiscombe is set in a peaceful landscape, you’ll find dog and family-friendly pubs, farm shops and cafes just a few minutes by car. Visit our dog-friendly and food & drink pages for lots more information.
