Dittiscombe Hills Estate & Cottages
Dog Friendly Accommodation near Kingsbridge, Devon
Beautiful Dog Friendly Self-catering Holiday Cottages nestle in a tranquil South Devon valley near Dartmouth and Salcombe...
Come and experience true peace and tranquility at Dittiscombe Holiday Cottages in the South Hams, an unspoilt location for a memorable holiday. We are close to sweeping clean beaches, the estuary towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe, and the rolling hills of Dartmoor.
From your cottage you will have access to 20 acres of grounds and woodland, which are managed for the exclusive use of guests, with each cottage garden overlooking part of the valley. Our nearest village, the historic village of Slapton, is just 2.5 miles away and is home to the Slapton Ley freshwater lake, great for bird and wildlife watching. The village has two excellent pubs offering a good selection of local food, beers and ciders.
We are set in the heart of the South Hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty in South Devon, which stretches from Dartmoor in the north to an unspoilt coastline in the south. There are award-winning beaches, coves and river estuaries nearby, many of which are dog-friendly, ideal for kayaking and watersports, and there's great walking along the South West Coast Path. The picturesque sailing towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are all a short drive away.
All our cottages all have Wifi, digital freeview TVs, some have woodburners and spa baths, and five are dog-friendly.
We are in an ideal location to explore the area on foot or by car. Have a car-free day out and take the 50-minute green lane walk to historic Slapton village with its two excellent dog-friendly pubs, and visit the nature trail and freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. Or drive to Dartmouth to see it's cobbled streets, ancient buildings, and the fabulous view over the harbour, taking in the beautiful beach of Blackpool Sands along the way.
Our six stone cottages nestle in the valley at the end of a private lane. They have been sympathetically renovated from farm buildings and are individually decorated and furnished. There are thick stone walls, exposed beams and recessed windows, feature fireplaces, slate, wood or ceramic flooring, providing a homely setting all year round. Willows, Rafters, Buddleia, Dovecote and Honeysuckle are all dog-friendly. We keep The Owlery as our pet free cottage.
Outside, the cottages have individual private gardens with lawns, flower and shrub borders, gravel patios, garden furniture, and lovely views of the surrounding valley.
The South Hams area of South Devon is perfect for a holiday with your dog. Not only are dogs welcome here, but also on the beaches and in the local cafes and pubs, offering a very relaxing holiday with your dog all year round. We have 20 acres of open space here, with woodland paths, ponds and meadows, making a safe walk around our private valley from your cottage door. And Slapton village is just 2.5 miles away, a walk of approximately 50 minutes.
In each of our dog-friendly cottages we supply a copy of Toby's Dog Walks in South Devon (books 1 and 2); a 'doggy bag' of edible goodies; a quantity of fully-biodegradable dog bags, and a torch. We can also supply extra towels, throws, rugs and bowls, emergency dog food, toys, leads and collars on request.
