Please note: The River Dart at Dittisham is Tidal. At high water the beach is submerged and the river surrounds the beach entrance to the cottage. There are steps and a path behind the cottage for routine 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.

  • 4 of 5

The property is in the most wonderful setting. At low tide you can drive your car to their slipway.

The car park is at the top of the hill and I think would get very busy in summer.

A great place for children to go crabbing from. Older children can do sailing courses.

We loved sitting and looking at the river.

The cafe next door does wonderful sea food lunches.

The cottage is comfortable. This is not a cottage for disabled people.

Cliff Cottage has a prime village position and is a stones throw away from the quay. The Dittisham quay is home to the local pub, The Ferry Boat Inn, and the Anchorstone Cafe (open March - September). Both of which share Cliff Cottage’s stunning views of the river Dart. Regular ferries to Dartmouth and across the water to The National Trust’s Greenway (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.
