Dittiscombe Hills Estate & Cottages

Come and relax in our dog and family friendly cottages surrounded by a private rewilded valley. With plenty of space, privacy and freedom to explore in our Hills, guests can stroll around the nature trail from their cottage door. 

The self-catering cottages, all nestling within the valley, sleep from 2 to 6 guests and are all individual in style with log-burners, spa baths, gardens and views.

For local outings the historic village of Slapton is just two miles from our valley with its dog-friendly pubs and the freshwater lagoon at Slapton Ley, which is a treasured national nature reserve. You can enjoy safaris and birdwatching around the Ley, choose from the many beaches of Start Bay (all dog-friendly) and take walks with stunning views along the South West Coast Path between Dartmouth and Plymouth.
