Berry Cottage is an immaculately presented Grade II listed waterfront retreat in an idyllic and picturesque location, boasting stunning and uninterrupted views across the River Dart.
Situated on The Quay in the pretty village of Dittisham, (known locally as Ditsum!) the property is just a 10-minute drive (or 20-30 minute river cruise via the small passenger ferry, or hired boat) from the historic naval town of Dartmouth, with its award-winning restaurants, individual boutique shops and delightful waterfront.
The Ferry Boat Inn (one of two pubs in the village, in addition to a shop/post office) and widely acclaimed Anchorstone Café serving locally-sourced fish and seafood in a stunning riverside location are within 100 yards of the cottage, whilst Agatha Christie's former home 'Greenway' (now owned by the National Trust) is a short ferry 'hop' across from The Quay.
The beautiful unspoilt South Devon coastline is also nearby, with Blue Flag-awarded Blackpool Sands beach around a 20-minute drive away.
Berry Cottage is a former 19th Century fisherman's cottage, sympathetically refurbished in recent years to create a luxurious, comfortable and cosy dog-friendly holiday home over three levels, sleeping up to four people (children over 5 only).
The property has a cosy living/dining area with wood-burning stove, an elegantly crafted kitchen, two en suite double bedrooms and two rear terrace / decking areas.
Guests can also enjoy complimentary Dart Marina Health Spa membership, where facilities include an indoor pool, steam room, Jacuzzi and gym (Current membership expires 10th February 2019).
This riverside property provides fabulous accommodation for a couple or group of friends, looking for a charming cottage in a beautiful location.

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.
