Things To Do

Barnfield is a pet-friendly home within a barn conversion, providing comfortable accommodation for four guests, with two bedrooms and two newly refurbished bathrooms. Neutrals and pastels create warmth throughout, while the newly renovated kitchen is ideal for preparing tasty breakfasts to delicious suppers. There is also access to four acres of communal gardens which include an orchard and several vantage points over the unspoiled village of Dittisham. There’s also parking for two cars.

Accommodation:

French windows from the parking area lead into the large open-plan living area, a light and airy modern space with wooden flooring and distinctive lounge, dining and kitchen areas. The high ceiling and exposed roof trusses retain the traditional barn conversion feel. The lounge area has two sofas and an armchair as well as a smart TV with a DVD player, and a separate CD/radio.

The new kitchen is on the far side of the room and has an electric cooker, hob, washer-dryer, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine, a fridge, and a freezer.

Nearby:

The village pub The Red Lion Inn is a 5-minute walk around the corner, The Red Lion also hosts the village shop and Post Office. A 10-minute walk will take you to The Quay where you will find the Ferry Boat Inn and The Anchorstone Café as well as ferries to the National Trust's Greenway house and gardens, and Dartmouth. The closest beach is Blackpool Sands a 10-minute drive away.
 

Dittisham truly is a Devon gem. 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.

"The accommodation is comfortable and set in a very convenient location to explore South Down. Dittisham is a charming village." - Nigel - July 2023

"Barnfield is in a lovely location and the property is in good condition inside. One or two problems - bathroom heated towel rail not working and a mirror would be useful in the other bathroom. It would have been nice to have a welcome pack!" - Robert - October 2022

Thank you Dart Valley Cottages. Another enjoyable week spent in Dittisham (I relax completely as soon as I arrive in this wonderful little village).It is always the beds that I am concerned about when renting a property. No complaints in that department, they were so comfortable.Barnfield was perfect!" - Samantha - June 2022

."What a beautiful location. A short steep climb necessary to reach this ingenious barn conversion, but well worth it, as it has created a fantastic view from the front porch. Saw some really spectacular sunsets during our all too short stay. Enjoyed the comfortable living area with its two settees to stretch out on whilst watching the TV. Soft carpeting throughout. I quite enjoyed going "downstairs" to bed!" - Middle - May 21

"Our second holiday at Barnfield. Christine at dart valley holiday let's was very helpful and reassuring over the phone before we came on holiday. The Barnfield was very clean, perfect location, the anchor and stone beautiful food and the ferry boat pub made you feel very welcome.overall an excellent holiday and definitely will be making it a third visit." August 2020


"Barnfield was everything we wanted for a comfortable New Year break. The cottage was warm, spacious, well-equipped, nicely decorated & furnished. The 2 parking spaces were invaluable. A choice of 2 pubs to walk to with a short & not too steep walk on the pavement to the foreshore. We enjoyed good food at the Ferry Boat Inn while the shop at The Red Lion was well-stocked even on New Year’s Day. We were also pleased to find that the ferry to Dartmouth runs on demand even in the depths of winter. Just give them a call. Excellent all round!" January 2020
