WELCOME TO DITTISCOMBE ESTATE & COTTAGES
Relax in the tranquility of our rural valley estate in beautiful South Devon
Within the spacious 20 acre retreat of Dittiscombe Estate, our six individual holiday cottages are surrounded by a glorious South Hams valley. Just 10 minutes by car, guests will find beautiful beaches and countryside, and a little further afield the estuary towns of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe.
Much of the South Hams is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, renowned for its gentle rolling hills, rural coastline, beaches and rivers, with plenty of walking routes and watersports to enjoy.
“Beautiful location and surrounding countryside and the re-wilding at Dittiscombe is inspiring and very much what we need as a country. Ruth and Jon were excellent hosts.“
Whittle Family, August 2020
The Holiday Cottages are surrounded by 20 acres of woodland, meadows, ponds and nature trail, and you can enjoy it all straight from your cottage door. Your self-catering cottage is comfortably furnished and has a private garden where you can soak up the views and peace of Dittiscombe Estate.
All the cottages have Wifi and TVs with streaming, some have log-burners and spa baths, and all are individually laid out and designed around the original farm buildings. Read more on the individual cottage pages.
Dittiscombe’s location is ideal for exploring the South Hams and the AONB, a truly unspoilt part of South Devon. Historic Slapton village is just a 10 minute drive away, and there you’ll find two very good pubs currently serving local food and drink. There is also a freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley where you can take a gentle walk around the edge, discovering the local wildlife. The beautiful beach of Start Bay, which is 3 miles long, is nearby too.
