The property

A spectacular house in the first row position above the River Dart in Dittisham on Devon's South coast.

Woodwater is the perfect place from which to explore this desirable area with friends and families, with an exquisite holiday home to return to each evening.

Resting within the South Hams district, it provides an extremely scenic base both externally and internally, with countryside and river views and a well-thought out and stylish interior, there's no better base than Woodwater.

Step into the open-plan living space and be delighted by the amazement of the room as the natural light pours in through the surrounding skylights.

Pull up a chair around the dining table and create a plan of action for the rest of your fun-filled holiday, while the chef of the group explores the good range of high quality appliances in the sleek kitchen area.

For a relaxing evening indoors, take a seat on one of the inviting sofas settled around the solid fuel stove, bringing a welcoming warmth and a homely ambiance to the room while sliding doors offer a beautiful backdrop.

Moving down onto the lower-ground-floor you will find four delightful sleeping spots where you can catch on your rest, made up of two king size rooms with en-suite shower rooms, a family room with two bunk beds and a twin room, it provides a wonderful sleeping arrangement for a variety of group needs, with each room holding its own contemporary style and plenty of storage space to house your personal belongings.

Surrounding the cottage, you can find a large lawn, with seating making it the perfect place to dine alfresco when you're not exploring the delightful eateries of the local area.

The village of Dittisham is home to a shop and pub, as well as walks along the River Dart being a wonderful experience to discover beautiful nature and a tranquil spot to enjoy a picnic.

Venture into Dartmouth to find a wider selection of amenities to indulge in, as well as history being available in form of Bayard's Cove Fort, its impressive castle and its museum in a circa 1640 merchant's house.

If you're seeking a day at the beach, dip your toes in the waters of Blackpool Sands and nearby Bantham Beach a bit further a field.

About the location


Darmouth 3.5 miles; Totnes 7 miles.

Dittisham is a picturesque village surrounded by rolling countryside, located on the banks of the River Dart in the South Hams. Wander along the quiet streets lined with quaint, stone cottages and lush gardens, until you reach the waterfront. Dittisham’s quayside is often regarded as the hub of village activity. Stop at the Anchorside Café for a spot of breakfast – while taking in the fantastic river views. Try your hand at some crabbing with the kids on the dinghy pontoon. Visit the iconic pink Ferry Boat Inn (or FBI as it is known locally). Ring the bell for the ferry and head across the Dart to Greenway, the once holiday home of the renowned Agatha Christie. For outdoor activity, there are sailing schools and canoe hire, as well as plenty of scenic walks. The harbour town of Dartmouth is just a short drive away or ferry away, and offers an array of shops, a cinema, plenty of restaurants and even a castle. Further afield, you will find plenty of fantastic beaches such as Blackpool and Slapton Sands, as well as key destinations such as Salcombe, Totnes, and Brixham to explore.
