Welcome to Dart Valley Cottages

Offering South Devon holiday cottages that feel like home.

About Dart Valley Cottages

Welcome to Dart Valley Cottages. We are a self-catering holiday home agency with a fine selection of properties in the South Hams – a very special part of South Devon.

The majority of our self-catering cottages and apartments are in the Dart Valley, reaching from the vibrant little market town of Totnes, to the historic maritime port of Dartmouth where the river Dart reaches the sea overlooked by the imposing Britannia Royal Naval College.

The River Dart passes by the waterside village of Dittisham, where we have a variety of holiday cottages. The village sees many families returning for their holidays year after year. The river here is an ideal location for learning to sail: the two sailing schools and boat hire in the village are very popular with our guests.
