Key Features



Newly Renovated for Easter 2020 - Damson Cottage is a delightful mid terrace cottage on the very peaceful Dittisham Court. With access to communal orchard and gardens as wall as a private patio garden, the cottage is dog friendly and is perfect for couples or small families to enjoy a getaway in the beautiful riverside village. The cottage is the heart of the Dittisham only a short walk from the village pubs and shop as well as the quayside. Crabbing from the pontoon is a firm favourite for children and the nearby Ham provides a great space for them to let off steam. Pet friendly, parking onsite.


The front door leads into the hallway with space for coats and boots. Straight through to the light and airy sitting room with sofa and armchairs, TV with DVD player. French doors fill the room with light and take you out to the sunny patio with garden furniture. A the near end of the room there is a dining area with table and chairs for 4. A brand new kitchen has been fitted (March 2021 photos to follow) an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. A serving hatch connects the kitchen to the living room. On the ground floor there is also a small cloakroom with toilet and wash basin.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, the master bedroom has a kingsize bed and views across the orchard and village, with a chest of drawers, built in wardrobe and en suite shower room with power shower and wash basin. The second bedroom is a twin room with 2 x 3’ beds and built in wardrobe. There is also a family bathroom with bath, electric shower over, toilet and wash basin on this floor.

Travel cot and highchair on request

Central heating


Damson Cottage benefits from a sunny private patio accessed via the French doors from the living room. With garden furniture and views across the shared orchard this is the perfect spot for a peaceful alfresco meal or quiet spot to sit and read. The orchard is accessible via a few steps at the end of the patio area.

Guests also have access to the 4 acres of communal ground on Dittisham Court this includes large grassy areas with vantage points over Bow Creek and over towards The Quay, as well as the orchard at the bottom. Guests are welcome to exercise dogs on the grounds however we ask they are kept on leads.


There is a private parking space for one car outside the front of cottage.


The village pub The Red Lion 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 Cafe as well as ferries to Greenway and Dartmouth. The closest beach is Blackpool Sands a 10 minute drive away.


In the peak season, May, June, July and August we need to keep to Saturday changeover and a minimum stay of 7 nights. However, please do contact us with any requests you may have and we will accommodate if possible.
Out of peak season we don't need to keep to a Saturday changeover.
Please get in touch if you need any advice or tips on places to visit, walks (we're right on the South West Coast path), pubs & restaurants etc.
"Damson Cottage is warm and welcoming with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The views out over the orchard and the little sunny patio are perfect for an afternoon cuppa. The cottage was well equipped and spotlessly clean and the information booklet very helpful. It is perfectly placed for exploring the area and has easy access to the River Dart with Dartmouth just a short drive away. We found both of the pubs in the village very hospitable with good food and both dog friendly, sadly the Anchor Stone Cafe closed on our second day due to the owner breaking her leg so didn’t get to try it. We will definitely be returning in the future." - J Fleming - October 2021
"Wish we could have had more than a week. Excellent spot, lovely village with a couple of pubs within walking distance." - Mark - September 2021

"Comfortable, clean and well located cottage. Quiet location. Lovely outdoor space. Pub 3 mins walk away. 5 min walk to stunning estuary / views. Lots of walks from the cottage. Regular water taxi into Dartmouth from Dittisham (10.30 and ever hour aftetwards). Easy walk to pontoon at low tide, slightly longer and hillier at high tide. Red Lion pub - (3 mins), quirky and friendly. Tired but lovely in its own way." - Lynette - September 2021
"Very Comfortable and well equipped cottage in a quiet and beautiful location, just as advertised- a sweeping brush and dust pan and brush would be a good addition !" - A Hall - August 2021

"The cottage was very clean and well appointed and was bigger then expected from the outside. It had a lovely little patio area with access to an orchard, with apples and plums available for picking. This was really great for letting the dog have a run around, although on a lead. The kitchen was well furnished with sharp knives (hurrah!) and the washing machine/dryer was a godsend after a day at the beach. There is little to fault - the car parking spaces could have been bigger and the en-suite could have had a toilet - but these are simply not available and in day to day living the cottage was lovely. It was great that it was dog friendly and we had a lovely time in the picture postcard village that is Dittisham" - Mark - August 2021

"Damson Cottage is very well equipped and Covid secure. The cottage surroundings are very peaceful with immediate access to an orchard. There is one village shop, which is also the pub and the post office, and everyone was very friendly. There are some very healthy walks from Dittisham and the Quay is within 10 minutes walk. A lovely spot with immediate access to the River Dart including a ferry across to the former home of Agatha Christie. The approach to Dittisham village is a not to be forgotten Devonshire driving experience with a windy road often requiring passing places to avoid the on coming traffic!!" - Dan - July 2021

"Damson Cottage is an ideal base for a break in Dittisham - fantastic quiet location within easy walking distance of pubs, cafe, shop and river. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well-equipped, modern and comfortable, with a lovely private patio and access to large communal gardens. Highly recommended for a Dittisham stay." - Hannah - June 2021

"We had a lovely stay in Damson cottage. The cottage was clean and cosy. Lovely views, very quiet and lots of wildlife. A particular highlight was the patio which got morning and evening sun. The location was great, a short walk down to the harbour and pubs/cafes. We came by bike but the shop at the Red Lion had enough to make breakfast, lunch and simple dinner." Arminel - June 2021

"The cottage was perfect for our needs. Everything seemed well looked after. The only minor issue was no blind in the kitchen. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom set up good. The cottage is simply decorated and furnished which suited us very well. The Dart valley Cottage team were very helpful through the booking process" - Debbie - June 2021.​

“We loved Damson Cottage - it's clean, comfortable, well equipped and with a fabulous location and views. It was great to look out the window every morning and see the church and to hear the bells on Sunday. The communal grounds were a real bonus too for us and our dog and they are well maintained. We had a great time in Dittisham, Dartmouth and surrounding areas. Christine was also very responsive when we had to call her a couple of times - she phoned back straightaway. Would strongly recommend the cottage - we'd certainly go back.” - Keith April 2021

"We have just returned from a week at Damson Cottage. It was the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 young children (& a dog). The weather was glorious, so we were able to open the patio doors and look out over the pretty garden. The children were also able to play in the large communal garden. The kitchen was lacking in a few things which we have mentioned to the owner." - Jay - April 2021

"Excellent location in lovely village of Dittisham. Perfect cottage for two of us, very well appointed, although the renovation of the kitchen had not been completed. Unfortunately the parking space was very tight. Unfortunately no notification to bring towels had reached us, however it was kind of agency to bring us three towels" Avril - September 2020

We had a perfect week in the cottage. We had friends in other cottages in the same complex- an ideal location. The cottage was very well equipped and very comfortable.The sofas seemed very new and walls recently decorated. The art work reflected the beautiful area. The only comment I can make is suggesting that the old unused picture hooks are removed. Dart cottages were very responsive and helpful." Katherine - August 2020
