Dittisham is a beautiful unspoilt village on the west side of the River Dart just a few minutes drive from Dartmouth or a short and enjoyable ferry trip from Dartmouth directly to the Dittisham village pontoon.
The annual Dittisham Regatta this year falls on Saturday 5th August. A fun filled event for the whole family with a host of sailing and rowing events to watch and a wide variety of child friendly activities including the highly popular children’s Regatta Crabbing Competition which Dart Valley Cottages are thrilled to be sponsoring this year. Over 60 children from the ages of 3 to 12 will gather on the floating pontoon to race to catch the most crabs. All entrances will win a special goody bag of sweets, toys and games to acknowledge their achievements. In addition, for the first time this year, each of the many stalls along the Quay will feature games, competitions and entertainment aimed specifically at the younger members of the family. With children’s fancy dress pirate boat races, hat decoration competitions and the annual tug of war, Dittisham Regatta offers a great day out for all.
