Dittiscombe Estate & Cottages

Dittiscombe Estate & Cottages is set in a peaceful wildlife valley near Slapton Sands beach and the South West Coast Path in South Devon. There are six self-catering cottages located around the Old Farmhouse. Surrounded by the rewilded valley of woods, meadows and ponds, guests and their dogs can enjoy this beautiful, tranquil space on holiday.

The historic village of Slapton, with its dog-friendly pubs, is just two miles from our valley, and the freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley is a treasured national nature reserve. We are located close to the hidden gem which is the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, renowned for its gentle rolling hills, wildlife estuaries, and unspoilt coastline.

To make the most of the beautiful surroundings and woodland at Dittiscombe we now offer guests nature connection experiences such as Forest Bathing, Nature Walks and Small Scale Rewilding Guided tours throughout the season, all bookable with us through the Experiences section of our website. You can make it a part of your stay here, or just visit us for one of these events.
