A beautiful house with stunning views
We loved it! Waking up every morning to look out over the estuary, crabbing on the pontoon and easy access to Dartmouth, Paignton, Salcombe and many more. Lovely pup, the Ferry boat Inn, literally on your door step!
Perfect for us as a family gathering and we could bring the dog
Thank you so much for your review, I am thrilled you had a great time. Any time you would like to return we would love to have you stay again.
Location, location, location
River front setting, cosy, well equipped cottage and good spaces for the dogs all set in picturesque south Devon... what more could you want?? Lovely stay. We were sad to leave the glorious view. Crabbing and roaming the local beach keeps kids well entertained. Probably not for people with poor mobility but superb otherwise. We would love to return. Could use some updated pillows but otherwise very comfortable in all regards.
Stunning location, great base to explore Dartmouth, Totnes, Brixham etc
The cottage was well laid out, lovely and cosy and warm, fabulous views, that you could never get tired of. The bed was comfortable, bathrooms clean. Unfortunately there were some disappointments: the access via the beach was blocked by other vehicles, we totally understand this is out of your control but it was still a problem for us with respect to unloading and loading; the overall cleanliness of the cottage was average but the kitchen area, particularly where the pots and pans were stored, was very dirty, one small frying pan still had old fat in it and there were other pans that had the remains of food in them; we found the heating boiler very noisy, again probably out of your control; the door we had to use to enter and exit the property seriously stuck and was very difficult to open and close, this was the only door we could use. Please don't take these comments the wrong way, we had a lovely weekend, but if you're not aware of these issues you can't have the opportunity to put them right.
Thank you for your review, and you are quite right, we always welcome feedback. I am very pleased that you had a great weekend and enjoyed the cottage and its stunning views. I'm very sorry that you had an issue with access to the beach for unloading, and also that pans were left in a less than clean state. I've not heard of an issue with vehicles blocking the way before, but will certainly log your comments and observe that, and I have made a note to ensure the pan cupboard is thoroughly checked at each change over. With regard to the audible boiler and sticky door I'm afraid these can be features of an older Devon riverside cottage, but we will check the door so please accept my apologies and thank you again for your feedback.
Cliff Cottage was all we could have asked for. The view directly on the river was magical and all we needed to do was walk out the door and straight down to the ferry for Dartmouth or Greenway. It was with great sadness we had to leave. The kitchen was well equipped and the house felt like home. Can only thoroughly recommend Cliff Cottage and I hope we can return one day.
Thank you so much for leaving us a review! I am so glad that you had a great stay, and would love to welcome you here again.
Great cottage and great location. What more could you want
The cottage was ideal for my family. The location would be very difficult to improve on. The direct access to the water via the personal slipway was perfect for us to launch and recover
Thank you very much for your review, it is much appreciated. We would love to welcome you to Cliff Cottage again at any time.
Dittisham, is a traditional Devon fishing village located on the River Dart.
Cliff Cottage has a prime village position and is a stones throw away from the quay. The Dittisham quay is home to the local pub, The Ferry Boat Inn, and the Anchorstone Cafe (open March - September). Both of which share Cliff Cottage’s stunning views of the river Dart. Regular ferries to Dartmouth and across the water to The National Trust’s Greenway (Agatha Christies holiday residence) also run from here.
Other facilities in Dittisham include a village shop, playground, café, two pubs, boat hire and sailing school.
