    • “This was our second annual consecutive stay at Dove Cottage.It is well designed and appointed with car parking for up to 3 cars, which is necessary. The cottage would benefit from: serving spoons other than plastic salad servers. more than one hairdryer replacing rotted wood on terrace and oiling all of terrace. the external wood furniture on terrace is showing its age and two chairs need replacing maybe worth considering removing three seater chair on terrace and replacing with a sun lounger The peace and tranquility is great, this year we also had super weather”

    Mr Hopkins, SWANSEA, June 2018

    • “We had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed exploring the area from this gorgeous location. The views from the veranda were spectacular and we loved waking up to them!”

    Mrs Riley, Bolton, May 2018

    • “We had a very good holiday in a lovely property. However when we arrived at the property the keys had been left in a key safe. Unfortunately the code appears to have been changed and the number you provided for the key safe was incorrect. It was lucky that we arrived at the property at a time when we were able to contact Pure Management who provided us with the correct code.”

    Mr West, WIMBORNE, May 2018

    • “Lovely well equipped and beautifully furnished house in a gorgeous setting Great place for a family or group of friends”

The Property

A beautiful contemporary house in an enviable position, high on the edge of Dittisham with outstanding panoramic views of the Dart estuary. A huge width-of-house patio makes the most of views over the river to the heights beyond: a great spot for alfresco dining, stargazing and sundowners. From the patio (table/chairs), a steep path with occasional steps winds down through beautifully landscaped garden with garden room (tables/chairs, small kitchenette) and two lily ponds (unfenced). At the bottom of the garden, a pedestrian gate leads directly to the centre of the village. Steps (13) down to main entrance from parking area (space for three cars). Inside, modern comforts and fuss-free lines create an elegant and relaxing house. The focus of the living area is the floor-to-ceiling windows across the width of the house, allowing ever-changing light through the house and opening to the decked patio. Contemporary, elegant living room (woodburner, TV/DVD) links to dining area, beyond which is a sleek curving kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric Aga - no other cooker) with door to boot room and back door to garden. From the kitchen, step up to twin bedroom (TV) with door to terrace. Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer, sink). Loo. Upstairs, three further bedrooms, all with sensational estuary views - a double (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), another double (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and, up a step, a large double (6' bed, TV) with en suite shower-room (suite) and doors to private balcony and possibly the best view of all. No children under 7, except pre-crawling babies, due to ponds and steepness of the garden. Damages Deposit £500. A beautiful house with a truly spectacular, time-wasting view all year round: a wonderful place for mature families holidaying together.

Dittisham: idyllically situated, end-of-lane little village (PO/stores, two pubs, church) beside the beautiful lake-like River Dart. Jetty (crabbing), pedestrian ferry to Greenway (Nat. Trust, once Agatha Christie’s), boats for hire, dinghy moorings, sailing school. Dartmouth (town), 2 miles (ferry); Dartmouth Golf and Country Club, 3¼ miles.
