Things to do

-Watersports: Fishing enthusiasts need only travel nine miles to Brixham to gain access to a wide variety of fish. Serious anglers go far offshore in pursuit of skate, bass, flat fish, conger eel, pollock and pouting. Mackerel fishing offers a more relaxed experience and keen anglers reserve a place on a boat and head for Berry Head. Mackerel fishing trips typically last two hours, include all the equipment necessary, and depart daily.

-Culture: Across the river from the village is the beautiful holiday home and gardens of famed crime author Agatha Christie. Currently under the care of the National Trust, the home is filled with lovely items and collections of books, silver, china, Tunbridgeware and other artefacts. This is where Christie spent her summers and she used some of the surroundings in her books. Nearby the home there is a boat house that was the inspiration for the crime scene in Dead Man’s Folly.

-Family activities: Paignton Zoo is less than 15 miles from holiday cottages in Dittisham and has a huge variety of wildlife ranging from tiny amphibians to giraffes, lions, and gorillas.
