Dittiscombe is a little gem for a cottage break in the South Hams. The cottages are cosy and clean with spacious gardens. It was a real delight to be woken every morning by the sound of birds signing and the occasional owl. So many beautiful villages around, with some great eateries, just delightful. We will certainly be back!
