On the banks of the winding River Dart is the attractive riverside village of Dittisham. With its welcoming pubs and waterside café, this picturesque location is only a couple of miles from the maritime town of Dartmouth. The village pontoon is the ideal place to dangle your crabbing line, while across the water, and only a short ferry trip away, is Greenway House, the once holiday home of famous crime author, Agatha Christie, which is now open to the public. The village, which takes its name from the locally grown ‘Ditsum Plum’, is also full of folklore and legend, the most famous surrounding the Anchor Stone at Vipers Quay, where unfaithful wives were supposedly tied! Dower House is a gorgeous eighteenth century farmhouse, ideal for large families or groups. Surrounded by beautiful South Devon scenery, its spacious riverside terrace is the perfect spot for a lazy breakfast or relaxing drop of plum wine in the afternoon sun. On the outskirts of the village, on the banks of the tranquil River Dart, is Gurrow Cottage, tucked away in the magnificent gardens of a private estate. Here, guests are free to wander the surrounding eighty acres of breathtaking countryside. This detached waterside holiday cottage also has its own private slipway and tennis court.
