Situated in the heart of the charming village of Dittisham and enjoying extensive views across the village and the Dart estuary, this gorgeous 18th Century cottage, originally a farmhouse, provides extremely comfortable and attractive accommodation in this very desirable location. The property has the great advantage of a private drive with ample parking, a secluded sloping orchard garden and most rooms benefit from the beautiful scenery, not least the spacious terrace that extends across the riverside of the house, a wonderful spot for breakfast on a sunny morning or a drink in the evening to enjoy the view and watch the busy life of the river. This is a superb house, cosy for a single family and big enough for two families holidaying together.
