HOW TO BOOK HERE

Honeysuckle Cottage was perfect for two of us and Daisy our dog. Clean, functional and cosy. It was lovely to be able to wonder around in the wonderful grounds. Ruth and John could not have been more helpful. So many places nearby to explore. A very special place to stay.

Dittiscombe Farm is one of those wonderful places you wish you’d found much earlier, and now that you have you want to keep it to yourself, but you know you have to share 🙂 We had a fantastic time relaxing in Honeysuckle cottage, enjoying the blissful peace and valley views. Thank you Ruth and Jon, we can’t wait to get back! 🙂

Honeysuckle is a comfortable self-catering cottage for couples and welcomes one dog. With lovely views over Dittiscombe Hills and access to 20 acres of woodland and meadows from the cottage door, Honeysuckle is an ideal cottage for guests who enjoy relaxing in quiet surroundings, with nature and bird-watching on the doorstep.

It is a single-story cottage with a stable-style front door leading directly to the sitting room with sofa, chair, coffee tables, log-burner, TV, DVD and Bluetooth player. There is a wood-block floor and valley view from the sitting room.

Two steps take you to the bedroom which has a king-size bed, chair, bedside tables, chest and wardrobe. The kitchen, up one step, is fully fitted with electric oven, microwave and ceramic hob, dining table and chairs. The kitchen leads to the bathroom with a bath with shower over, basin and toilet.

The south-facing garden is accessed at the side of the cottage where there is a level gravel area with a table and chairs and is fully-enclosed with post and rail fencing with stock proof wire. From the garden you will have far-reaching views of the valley, woodland and wildflower banks. There is a garden gate to Willows cottage.

Honeysuckle has full central heating with a gas-fired combination boiler and programmer. Wifi available throughout the cottage.

The cottage is set in our peaceful valley but a 10 minute drive or about an hour’s walk off-road will take you to historic Slapton village with its two dog-friendly pubs and small community shop.  A little further afield there is the huge stretch of beach at Start Bay and here walkers can join the South West Coast Path for spectacular coastal walks.  The pretty estuary towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are all within a 30 minute drive.

Bath and hand towels are provided in this cottage. Guests are able to unload outside cottage, and parking is in the communal car park.

Short breaks are available outside the school holidays:  3-night weekend or 4 night mid-week breaks start from £325 in the low season. Go to the Short Breaks page to find out more about what’s available and read Ruth’s blog for a suggested itinerary. And to find our more about things to do with your dog while on holiday visit our Dog Friendly Dittiscombe page.
