"We have to say it’s the best accommodation for holidaymakers with dogs".’ Elaine and Keith, May 2016
Come and stay in our dog-friendly cottages in South Devon. We are surrounded by an exclusive valley of 20 acres where guests and their dogs can walk, play and relax in our tranquil surroundings. We are also close to many beautiful dog-friendly beaches and stunning coastal walks along the South West Coast Path. There are 5 dog-friendly cottages at Dittiscombe sleeping 2 – 6 guests. Each cottage has a private garden, some enclosed, and free wifi, lovely valley views, and access to the nature trail and woodland. We provide dog treats, towels and throws, a hose for dirty paws, dog walking books and suggestions for days out, and biodegradable dog bags.
From Dittiscombe you can make a visit to our local village of Slapton, about 10 minutes by car or 1 hour on foot. Here you will discover two excellent dog-friendly pubs and a small village store, the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley, great for bird and wildlife watching, and the dog-friendly beaches at Start Bay.
The South West Coast Path offers great walking opportunities and you can walk from Dartmouth to Salcombe taking in the stunning coastal views, stopping off at dog friendly beaches and cafes along the way.
We are centrally located in the South Hams area and as well as the lovely beaches and estuaries you can visit the nearby sailing towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe, and market towns of Kingsbridge and Totnes.
Open all year, Dittiscombe welcomes families and couples for summer holidays, romantic off-season breaks, and walking holidays.
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
Properties range from 1 bedroom (Honeysuckle), to 2 bedrooms (Rafters, Buddleia and Dovecote) and 4 bedrooms (Willows). Some have woodburners, all are heated throughout, with fully fitted kitchens, furnished to a high standard, free wifi, with pretty individual gardens and valley views from cottage windows
