Penveron is a detached, self catering holiday cottage with stunning views over the Dart Estuary. The accommodation has been refurbished to a very high standard and there is a large garden to the rear of the property. It is close to the centre of the village, with its excellent shop and two pubs. Dittisham is one of the prettiest and most unspoilt villages within the South Hams.
The village boasts a riverside tearoom, a well stocked village store and the opportunity to hire a variety of boats to explore the upper reaches of River Dart. For the young - and the young at heart, Dittisham is the perfect place for 'crabbing' - lines and bait are available at the tearooms!
