Overview

About the property

Cottage in Dittisham, Nr. Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Sitting On The Banks Of The River Dart, This Thatched Cottage, Enjoys A Unique And Secluded Location

Enjoy sailing to your door, fishing from the patio or simply watch the boats and wildlife pass you by from this perfect waterside location.

The ground floor accommodation includes a sitting room with flagstone floor and wood burning stove, dining room with doors to the terrace, study, and kitchen with cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher and washer-dryer. The upstairs bedrooms all enjoy the fabulous river views, they include a master bedroom with super-king sized bed (with the option of two singles). This room enjoys patio doors leading on to a raised terrace and an en-suite bath/shower room. Two further double bedrooms and a twin room follow along with a family bathroom. Outside is a fabulous split-level terrace with table and chairs to enjoy the beautiful views of the River Dart.

Dittisham, is a traditional Devon fishing village located on the River. A short stroll along the beach from Smugglers is the quay, home to the local pub (The Ferry Boat Inn), and the Anchorstone Cafe (open March - September). Both of which share Smugglers' stunning views of the Dart. Regular ferries to Dartmouth and across the water to The National Trust's Green way (Agatha Christies holiday residence) also run from here.

Other facilities in Dittisham include a village shop, playground, café, two pubs, boat hire and sailing school.

Please note: The river Dart at Dittisham is Tidal. At high water the beach is submerged and the river surrounds the house. There are steep steps and a path behind the cottage for access during high tide. The cottage is, therefore, not suitable for the elderly or infirm and young children should be supervised. Parking is possible on the beach at low tide. Cars must be parked in the village at high tide.

The South hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty in south Devon, is the perfect holiday destination. Offering the best of both beautiful coastline and unspoilt countryside, there are an abundance of scenic coastal paths and rolling valley walks to choose from. Family holidays are well catered for with many attractions such as the Dart Valley Railway, the Dartmouth castle and ferry trips along the river, a great opportunity to see the dolphins and seals that visit the Dart as well as visiting the fabulous boutique shops and restaurants that both Totnes and Dartmouth have to offer. To the north of the South Hams you will find the Dartmoor National Park and to the south, a beautiful stretch of coastline including many excellent beaches for the family, such as the Slapton sands, Blackpool sands and Salcome Sands.

Dittisham, is an unspoilt and exceptionally beautiful riverside fishing village located up stream from Dartmouth on the River Dart. Dittisham village is the ideal spot for a truly relaxing holiday. There is enough to keep you entertained in the village itself from crabbing from the pontoon, fishing from the beach, boat hire, sailing school, waterside pub and cafe, village shop, playground and fabulous beach walks at low tide. Dittisham is also a great base from which to explore. Ring the bell to call the ferry which will take you across the water to Greenway, Agatha Christie's holiday residence or take the 30 minute ferry ride that runs in to Dartmouth throughout the year.

About Sarah Andrew

Smugglers Cottage is the pride and joy of the Andrew family. We are a large and close family consisting of Grandpa, his 2 sons and daughter, aunties and uncles and all their children.

Why Sarah Andrew chose Dittisham

We fell in love with Smugglers Cottage and it's incredible and unique location when we happened to moor up in front of it whilst on a family sailing holiday.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the peace and quiet and beautiful views, there is nothing better than sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine or cup of tea watching the boats go by.
