Description

A hilltop location provides Foxenhole Farmhouse with stunning panoramic views across rolling Devon countryside to the river Dart and beyond to the heights of Dartmoor in the distance. This detached former farmhouse has been recently refurbished to a high standard and provides tasteful, very comfortable accommodation with an extensive garden in a beautiful area. Alongside the road, it is a 20 minute walk down the hill to reach Dittisham, a quintessential attractive and unspoilt South Devon village in a tranquil setting overlooking the widest part of the River Dart. There are delightful stone built and thatched cottages with gorgeous views of bright river craft making a splash of colour against a backdrop of densely wooded slopes. Narrow lanes reach down to the beach where the waters are a popular venue for boating enthusiasts. The village is lively with a village shop and two good pubs, one on the waterside where the quay is a favourite spot for crabbing and a tug on a bell rope calls the ferry boatman to collect you to visit Greenways, Agatha Christie’s original home, now part of the National Trust. Dartmouth and Totnes are easily reached by ferry and there are boats for hire, dinghy moorings and a sailing school.

Steps up to an open porch and front door. Hallway with cloak hooks and sliding door to downstairs cloakroom with basin and WC. Handsome spacious sitting room with two generous leather sofas, rugs on the tiled floor, huge feature stone hearth inset with a large woodburner (can be used as an open fire, with doors open), 50” wide screen TV with DVD, DAB radio and French doors to the conservatory. This lovely room has views over the garden and beyond is well furnished with wicker chairs and double doors open to the terrace. Tiled kitchen diner with ornamental fireplace and  farmhouse table to seat 6. Bright coloured tiled work surfaces and triple aspect windows make this a very light room with splendid views, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric cooker with halogen hob and double ovens. Door to rear lobby/utility area with dog basket, washing machine and room for coats and boots. Carpeted stairs. Fine master bedroom with ‘antique’ pine furniture, 4ft 6in bed (with king size duvet), 22” flat screen TV, views across farmland to the River Dart and Stoke Gabriel and en-suite bathroom with painted floor, bath, shower over, basin and WC. Twin bedroom with 3ft beds (both with double duvets), matching tallboy chests, fitted hanging cupboard and more fine views. Second double bedroom with 4ft 6in bed (with king size duvet), 22” flat screen TV and views to the front of the house and countryside. Family shower room with painted floor boards, large shower enclosure, basin and WC. 

A gravelled driveway leads to a parking area at the front of the house bordered by lawns that extend around the side. Further gravelled area beside the house provides ample space for boat and trailer. At the rear of the house a wide paved terrace is provided with table and chairs. Paths lead to the huge enclosed lawns and there is a raised deck area beside a fenced pond.

We did enjoy our stay at Foxenhole farmhouse and would consider returning in the future. We loved the location and the views and sunsets were wonderful. The owners,Doug and Elaine were very nice and friendly,also the scaffolding did'nt really bother us. I thanked them for our stay there; they even brought us wine and chocolates as compensation for putting up with the scaffolding!

The accommodation was perfect for our needs. Location handy for shopping, plenty of local facilities. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely time at Foxenhole and can not wait to go again.


May 2017

all fine - a perfect break


April 2017

Foxenhole is an excellent base for either a couple or a family holiday. Should you require to eat out there are two pubs in Dittsham, the Red Lion and the FBI, also the Sportsman at the top of the lane. There are also more than a few restaurants in Dartmouth. Owners were helpful but not intrusive, also the locals in Dittsham! where all very friendly (some better for the knowing!) Beautiful area of the country, as are all the areas both in and on the periphery of the South Hams. Most places we visited in the fortnight were 'dog friendly' the one notable exception being Buckfast Abbey, NO dogs allowed.


April 2017

We had a great week at Foxenhole. The cottage and location are wonderful.


March 2017

It was our fourth stay at Foxenhole. We enjoyed lots of beautiful walks in the viscinity. The accommodation is very comfortable and an ideal place to bring a dog.


October 2016

The property is in a perfect location, is lovely and spacious and exceptionally clean with stunning views from every window. Extremely pleasant, helpful owners. Would definitely recommend and we look forward to returning.


February 2016

Extremely pleasant cottage owners, who are nearby. Some work was needed on the boiler whilst we there, but they very respectful and didn't want to disturb our break (which they didn't). The fish and chip van stops in the lay-by on the road on Wednesdays. I've never tasted fish so fresh (but I am from the Midlands).

We loved our stay at Foxenhall. It is wonderful for humans and dogs alike, and we will certainly go back there again one day. Lovely view, lovely PEACEFUL friendly house, incredible well situated. Very nice owners. We rattled around in it a bit, being justy the two of us. It is a sociable house. Great for a party of four or five, or even six.

The farmhouse was everything and more that we wanted. Very clean on arrival and plenty of space for our family of four. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the location was fantastic. I honestly could not say one bad comment about this place.


November 2014

A lovely cottage, spacious especially as there was only 2 of us staying with our dogs. Lovely large gardens, back and front and in an ideal situation for Dartmouth and the surrounding area. Owners were there to greet us and to say goodbye the evening before we left and were very friendly. The cottage was really warm with a huge fire in the lounge awaiting our arrival, a lovely touch and very welcoming.


September 2014

Very happy with our stay in the cottage which was immaculately clean and in a wonderful location for all the local beauty spots. The garden was wonderful and our dog thoroughly enjoyed it. The owners were helpful and friendly and the vases of flowers in the cottage were lovely. Also the views from the garden across the countryside to the coast were utterly amazing.

April 2014

we had a wonderful holiday at Foxenholes,by far the best accommodation we have stayed in. The owners greeted us with an open log fire, and checked everything was ok during the stay.

As responsible dog owners who have stayed in numerous cottages, this is the first cottage that has met all our needs as well as our dog. As a result we all had a relaxing and rejuvenating break.
