Dittisham Creek is a 2 min walk from Cobwebs and 'The Ham' is a 5 min walk and is a tranquil spot next to the river with lots of grass, a children's play-ground and benches by the river. Blackpool Sands-20 min drive is set in an unspoilt, sheltered bay, clear blue water, surrounded by magnificent evergreens and pines. Slapton Sands-25 min drive is a long stretch of shingle beach and fantastic for a bracing walk. Salcombe - 40 min drive is a very popular seaside town with pretty beaches.
Dartmouth Golf & Country Club is 5 minutes drive away. One of Devon's premier golf courses and leisure resorts, it offers excellent leisure facilities for the golfer and non golfer alike. The 18-hole Championship golf course is voted within the top 80 golf courses in Great Britain and Ireland is a test for any golfer, whilst the 9-hole Dartmouth course is one not to be missed. Dartmouth Golf & Country Club also boasts a driving range and other practice facilities for those who wish to practice their golf swing.
How to get there
The nearest airport is Exeter Airport which is about an hour's drive from the village. Bristol airport is about 2 hours drive. Totnes is the closest mainline railway station. Its about 20 minutes from the village.
The two closest towns are Dartmouth and Totnes which are a 10 minute and 20 minute drive from the village respectively. Exeter is about a 45 minute drive from the village. The Dartmouth to Dittisham Ferry is a delightful passenger ferry which runs year-round on a loop from Dartmouth to Dittisham. It is a great way to see the lower reaches of the Dart and enjoy a half hour trip on the River whilst not having to worry about parking at the other end. Blackpool beach is about 20 minute drive.
Dittisham or Ditsum as it is locally known, is lucky enough to be served by two pubs, a post office, a shop and an excellent waterside cafe.
Greenway House - The former home of Agatha Christie and since the multi million pound refurbishment carried out by the National Trust, the Greenway estate is proving to be hugely popular. Take a short trip on the Dittisham to Greenway passenger ferry to get there.
River Dart - The beauty of the River Dart is recognised throughout the world. Enjoy a leisurely cruise on a river steamer to Totnes when the tides are right, or around the harbour for a shorter trip. On the way to Totnes you'll see Greenway House. Take a small ferry up to Dittisham, have lunch and walk back along the Dart Valley Trail. From Easter to the end of October, this ferry runs a regular service to and from the village.
Walks - There are miles of coastal footpath and some wonderful inland walks too. In summer, Coast Path and Dart Valley 'Hopper' buses allow you to enjoy the coast and river walks without having to worry about getting back to where you started! Advice about walks, leaflets, maps and bus timetables are available from the Tourist Office. Dartmouth Steam Railway from Paignton is the holiday-line with steam trains running for 7 miles in Great Western tradition along the spectacular Torbay Coast to Churston and through the wooded slopes bordering the Dart estuary to Kingswear. The scenery is superb. Approaching Kingswear is the beautiful River Dart, with its fascinating craft, and on the far side, the olde world town of Dartmouth and the famous Britannia Royal Naval College, Butterwalk, Bayards Cove and Dartmouth Castle.
Classic English wines are produced nearby at Sharpham vineyard as a result of a happy marriage of soil, climate and grape variety known as terroir. Their tally of International Awards confirms their position as one of England's foremost quality wine producers.

About the owner
Cobwebs has been in our family for about 20 years. When we purchased it, it was a run-down and disused property which we lovingly restored and brought back to life. It is located next door to our family home so I am always on hand for our guests if they need anything or have any questions about the local area. Its a stunning village and Cobwebs provides all the amenities for a peaceful and relaxing holiday with all the comforts of home.
Year purchased: 1980's
