“We have had the perfect relaxing week in a very homely and cosy cottage, and it was a particular privilege to enjoy the big beautiful garden and tasty plumbs. Rooms were so beautifully done and very cosy beds to snuggle up in. It was our third time down in Dittisham and we still absolutely loved it, both pubs were fabulous and such pretty yet steep walks! At 18 years old I still went crabbing- unfortunately only 50 crabs in total, think I’m getting too old to be so successful! Thank you so much” The Meadows, Buckinghamshire – August 2017

Directions can be got from tourist info at Dartmouth. We have really enjoyed the FBI and so handy. A really beautiful part of the country. Thank You!” Howcolt Family, London – May 2017
