    “A few housekeeping glitches.”

    The shower plug is blocked and needs a suction pump as the water floods over the edge. The bath plug needs replacing. It leaks out water while having bath and won’t pop up while there is water in the bath. It’s basically broken. There is a big fly problem in the bathroom. I killed at least 50. It’s pretty disgusting. They collect In clouds on the window behind the wooden blinds.

The property

Berry Cottage is an immaculately presented Grade II listed waterfront retreat, situated on The Quay in the pretty village of Dittisham, boasting uninterrupted views across the River Dart.

This former 19th Century fisherman's cottage has been recently, sympathetically and extensively refurbished to create a luxurious, cosy dog-friendly holiday home over three levels, sleeping up to four people (children over 5 only). The cottage has a charming living/dining area, with original supporting beams, delightful views and a wood-burning stove.

Two steps lead up to the well-equipped and elegantly crafted kitchen.

A door leads out to the rear terrace and decking areas. An open staircase (with restricted head height in parts) leads up to the two en suite bedrooms.

Master bedroom has superb river views and King-size bed.

Narrow and relatively steep stairs lead up to an en suite built into the roof space above, with a freestanding tubby bathtub (approx. 1200mm in length).

Second bedroom is accessed via its own en suite which features a large walk-in shower.

Two steps lead up into the bedroom with double bed. To the rear of the cottage there are two flights of stone steps up to a private terrace.

A further set of stone steps offer access to a spacious wooden decking with chairs, table and sun loungers, plus river views.

A small dinghy can be moored outside the cottage. Guests can enjoy complimentary Dart Marina Health Spa membership.

Facilities include an indoor pool, steam room, Jacuzzi and gym (Current membership expires 10th February 2019).

About the location


Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon.

The Quay in Dittisham is accessed by one steep and narrow road (mostly one car width) only. Whilst it may be possible to park for a short period nearby to unload/load on arrival/departure this will be dependant on local tides and usage of the nearby pub and cafe. We advise guests to park at The Ham and carry luggage (preferably in small, soft bags not suitcases!) along The Quay to Berry Cottage. You can purchase weekly car parking tickets from the two car parks in Dittisham.

Property has five sets of narrow/steep stairs - may not be suitable for guests with health or access concerns.

For reasons of safety - including the proximity of the cottage to the waters edge, and steep internal staircases - children under 5 years of age are not permitted.

The spa will be closed for 6 weeks from the 7th January and on reopening will not accept children under the age of 16.
