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. HomeAway lists plenty of options for accommodation close to the South West Coast Path including holiday cottages in Bovey Tracey, Dawlish and Ashburton.

Beautiful house to stay in, very comfortable and good spec of interior. Highly recommend.

5 of 5
We had a great long weekend at midships, a really comfortable home and the interior is to a lovely specification. The ensuites were very useful as was the downstairs loo. It allows dogs, you wouldn’t know this though as in it’s very clean and tidy and no dog odours. A manageable walk into the town and the allocated parking space was a godsend! Would definitely look to return.
