Dittiscombe is open all year and we welcome families and couples for summer holidays, romantic getaways, walking and activity holidays, and off-season short breaks. Dogs are welcome too with over 20 acres of open space for 'walkies' on site.

Some of our cottages have woodburners and spa baths and all are well-equipped and include LCD TVs and Wifi. Within our conservation valley we manage a nature trail with ponds, woodlands and meadows. Guests can watch the wildlife from their cottage gardens or from vantage points along the nature trail.

We recommend a car free day walking from Dittiscombe to Slapton village with its two excellent dog-friendly pubs; or perhaps a nature safari around the freshwater lagoon and reed beds at Slapton Ley. Stunning beaches and coves are just a short drive away and there's great walking on the South West Coast Path between Dartmouth and Salcombe. Other local coast and countryside activities include hiking on Dartmoor, rock-pooling, canoeing, surfing, sailing and golfing.

We provide our guests with a temporary membership to Dartmouth Golf & Country Club (five miles) where there are 18 and 9-hole courses, a pool, sauna and gym, and can arrange tee-times on the many coastal and moorland golf courses nearby.

During the low season (November to Easter) we offer short breaks.

Kayak Hire: Discover the beauty of our local estuaries, rivers and coastline with our new two-person sit on top Kayak which is available to hire on a daily basis. More details are available on our website or by e-mail.
