Things To Do

The chocolate box frontage of this stunning cottage leads into a fresh and contemporary interior reflecting coast and country. Natural light bathes the living space with floor-to-ceiling window walls on two sides, with views of the garden and the trees beyond. Four generous bedrooms (three en suite) make for a refreshing sleep. The tended lawns are zoned with wildlife havens, with meadow flowers, a pond, and a stream. The large patio has plenty of seating for relaxing and dining.

Please note: Children must never be left unsupervised when outside. There is a pond and a stream, which could pose a safety hazard. There's also wildlife in the garden, around which care must always be taken.

Accommodation

Contemporary, warm, and styled in muted earthy tones and bright touches, when you enter the home, you are immediately greeted by a real feel of style with rough timber-clad walls adorned with unique local artefacts. This cottage is truly special, with a feeling of true class and depth of character.

The hallway takes you to the living/snug room area, elegantly decorated with navy blue wooden panelling, a wood-burning stove, large comfy sofas, a smart TV and views over the front garden. A great room to relax, read a book, or for children to huddle together to watch a film or play games.

Further down the hallway is the open-plan area with an adjoining designer-style cloakroom WC and a large separate utility room with a washing machine.

The open-plan living space and kitchen are stylishly laid out - two plush sofas let you soak up the garden views with floor-to-ceiling French windows on two sides.

The kitchen island makes meal preparation a social occasion and is well-equipped for every mealtime. Start the morning with Nespresso coffee at the breakfast bar, or gather around the solid-wood dining table. The range cooker has induction hob plates, grills and regular oven functions. There is also a dishwasher.

Upstairs, there are four comfortable bedrooms:

Immediately to the left at the top of the stairs is the front bedroom with a kingsize cast-iron bed with an en suite shower room and views over the front garden and rolling hills beyond.

Further along the landing, up a couple of steps to the left, is another bedroom with two single beds that can be made into a super-king on request, as well as a terrace with glass balustrade to enjoy broad views over the garden. This bedroom is adjacent to the family bathroom which has a separate bath and shower.

Further along the landing, to the rear of the house, is the corner master bedroom with kingsize bed and en suite shower room. This bedroom also benefits from large sliding patio windows and a balcony with glass balustrade from which there are extensive views of the garden and the hills beyond. A bistro table and chairs mean you can relax to enjoy the morning or evening sun.

Head upstairs again to the cosy fourth bedroom with a small double bed and an en suite bathroom with an overhead shower. This room is best suited for two young children or a young adult.

Garden

The spacious garden has a broad lawn and is also a wildlife haven, stretching into the woods and hills beyond. A pond, a stream and wild zones are left to nature (please see the notice above). Thoughtful sculptures add further character to this broad, open space.

A large terrace patio has generous seating to sit back and view the garden below. Dine in the dappled sunlight under the wood pergola, the refectory table big enough for all to gather around.

Parking

There is ample parking on the driveway - enough for 5 to 6 cars.

Nearby

You’re a short drive from two great (award-winning) waterside pubs: The Maltsters Arms and The Watermans Arms in Tuckenhay - ideal for a hearty meal after a country walk. Historic Totnes is a 20-minute drive, as is the closest beach, Blackpool Sands.
 
Dittisham truly is a Devon treasure. Nestled a few miles upstream from Dartmouth, this unspoiled and tranquil village is perfect for a relaxing riverside break and really makes the most of its waterside location. Watersports, fishing, sailing, paddle boarding and leisurely river rides are on your doorstep. Or why not hire a boat and explore the valley at your own pace?

On land, the shoreline meadow makes for a perfect picnic spot. Downstream by the jetty is The Ferry Boat Inn – drink and dine while enjoying picture-perfect views across the river valley beyond. It’s also where you can hire a canoe or kayak and paddle the river’s shallower waters.

Dittisham is also superbly connected by river to the Dart Valley’s must-see villages, towns, and attractions. Year-round frequent ferries take you to the historic port of Dartmouth, picturesque Kingswear and the eclectic charms of Totnes. And, just across the river on the opposite bank, a quick boat trip takes you to Agatha Christie’s resplendent Greenway holiday home and gardens, now cared for by the National Trust, and an idyllic day out.
Barberry farm court was lovely. It had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The host were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend it as a place to stay. Clare April 2024

Beautiful house in wonderful gardens. Very isolated and quiet. Very comfortable and homely. Even the weather didn't spoil our stay! Sarah April 2024

What an INCREDIBLE place! Our family (grandparents down to a 2 year old) had the most fantastic stay here. It is absolutely stunning! The house is spotless, very well equipped, extremely spacious and the garden is beautiful! On arrival the hosts popped over to say hi and to make sure we were ok which was lovely. There is much do do nearby which all generations loved - ferry over from Dittisham to Greenway National Trust, Dartmouth round robin steam train/ferry adventure, Blackpool Sands,crabbing in Brixham and roast at the The Waterman's Arms (maybe the best roast we've ever had!). We cannot recommend this property highly enough, we just hope that in doing so we can still book it when we return! Charlotte March 2024

Had the most amazing mini break in this wonderful home which is in a stunning location. Fabulous space for a family get together, cannot recommend highly enough. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Can't wait to book a return visit. Joanne March 2024

"Fabulous house, owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Would love to come back!" - Catriona - August 2023

"Our family (comprising of three almost grown up children 16 - 21 yrs) couldn't fault this property. We loved our stay. It was perfect for our spaniel with lots of private lawn, creek and pond to run about in, the house was spacious and extremely well thought out in terms of design and feel. Great for cooking and using the BBQ, also for relaxing and hanging out. It was the perfect base to explore the beautiful surrounding area with great walks and trips. We can't recommend this property enough - our only hesitation is that if we do it'll get too popular! Big thank you to our hosts Bob and Georgia who were extremely attentive and helpful!" - Massimo - August 2023

"Our hosts couldn’t have been more helpful. The house provided perfect accommodation for our large group with a wonderful social kitchen / dining area. Gardens are beautiful and the cottage is a pleasant walk to the village of Dittisham." - Isobel - August 2023

"The most beautiful idyllic stay at barberry cottage. Absolutely loved everything about it!" - S Lee - August 2023

'Wow! Simply stunning, outstanding location - perfect for a relaxing stay - better than we could have hoped for "- Scott - August 2023
