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. The animals are well cared for by expert keepers, and visitors to the zoo get to experience habitats from around the world. There is also a kids’ zone and steam train onsite as well as a convenient restaurant.

Outdoor activities: The South West Coast Path is rated as one of the best walks in the world and is easily accessible from Dittisham holiday cottages. There are a variety of different walks featuring a wide range of landscapes all available in the area. Dogs may accompany visitors over the entire pathway, and sightseers can take advantage of ferries to help vary their journey.

A colleague of mine suggested contacting Tony as he and his family stayed at Tony's property a few months ago and praised it. We ended up spending 1 week in Tudor Lodge and the following week in Ocean views to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Tony personally greeted us and could not do enough to ensure that all of our needs were met. We were all impressed, great sea views, the kids really enjoyed the facilities, being so close to the sea was a real convenience and especially loved the luxury of soaking in the hot tub/infinity pool in the evenings after days exploring. We all left with great memories of Dorset and definitely will be back to Tudor Lodge/Ocean Views !!! Highly recommended. Thanks Tony (and Dorset)

The barn is amazing and so spacious and private. We spent most evening on the lovely terrace area as the weather was superb. The barn is about a 30 minute drive from most of the towns which is ideal as you are tucked away is a pretty little village, the local pub is a must food is delicious. Safe to say we will definitely be returning next year Thank you so much Jackie Xx
