Offering an idyllic and tranquil holiday base, the cottages are just 1.5 miles north west of historic coastal village Slapton with its choice of pet friendly pubs, restaurants and shops. Local attractions include Slapton Ley Nature Reserve popular with birdwatchers. The spectacular South West Coast Path is just 3 miles away, running through magnificent scenery from Start Point to Dartmouth.
From Totnes: take the A381 towards Kingsbridge. Continue through the villages of Harbertonford and Halwell and past the Totnes Cross Filling Station. About 1 mile after this turn left into the lane signposted Slapton and East Allington (the turning is on a sharp right-hand bend in the main road). Go down this road for approximately 3.3 miles then turn right signposted Dittiscombe.
After approximately 0.5 miles you will see on the right a sign for the Dittiscombe Equestrian Centre with wooden fencing and a private lane. Turn right here and with the horse stables and cream bungalow on your left continue down this private lane for 0.3 miles and the farmhouse will be found at the bottom by the gravel car park. Please call at the farmhouse for your keys and to be shown into your cottage.
