"Have stayed here before. Provides very good accommodation. In excellent riverside position. On a nice day great to sit outside looking at all the activity. It is just starting to look a little tired in some areas. Shame there was no corkscrew and the wet room loo had a missing push button." Vicki - September 2020

"We’ve dreamed of staying in Dittisham and this was the best cottage for location! Amazing views and enjoyed the cottage so much. A really brilliant week away. Morning sun out the front and evening sun in the back garden. Just perfect and very dog friendly. Ticked all the boxes and we will be back!" Sarah - 24th July 2020

“The Bevans Family here again including Bronwen (the dog). Arrived in a storm! Struggled to get everything across to the cottage dry but we did it. The log burner was a big warm treat for us. The weather is mixed but heading towards winter – so expected. Fab views as always. the most relaxing place to be in all weathers. This is our 7th visit to Dunedin so cannot complain when the weather has been good for the previous 6” The Bevan Family – 31 October 2019

“Fantastic location, large comfortable property with a wonderful garden lodge and views. We did park on the shore but if you pack carefully and there are enough of you a few trips along the river bed will take you to the car park and back, loo rolls etc all provided so just food and bits needed. We had a few wet days but its lovely to sit upstairs playing games whilst the rain beats down, we also sat in the lower room with our tea and looked out when it was bad using the outside chairs which we made sure were dry first it worked very well. There are a lot of stairs so you will definitely come home fit. The gardens are extremely well looked after and the views from the garden lodge veranda are fantastic, a real sun spot. You must go across to Greenway and of course the Anchorstone and FBI. If you haven’t been to Dittisham you really should, it is the most relaxing place, leave the car for a week and use the water taxi – just perfect but don’t tell everyone we will never get in!!” Caroline – September 2019

“Another stay – this time two weeks, sadly still not long enough. Thank you so much dear owners for letting us share your beautiful home and garden. We do so love ‘Ditsum’ and messing about on the river” Moirion and Dennis – 20 September 2019

“Paradise. Dittisham is idyllic and the cottage is in a prime position on the quay front. Very comfortable. The location and stairs would not suit those with mobility issues as the car must be parked far away and the stairs are steep but it was fine for us as we abandoned the car for a week and traveled around on the numerous ferries up and down the Dart and ate at the excellent nearby Anchorstone Cafe ( fish restaurant). Our second trip and we have booked again for next year.” Susan – 28 June – 5 July 2019
