Pictures of Dittisham

in the county of Devon

About Dittisham

Attractive unspoilt village in a tranquil setting overlooking the widest part of the River Dart. There are delightful stone built and thatched cottages sided by small boathouses at the waterside and from the higher ground there are stunning views of bright river-craft making a vivid splash of colour against a backdrop of densely wooded slopes. Narrow lanes reach down to the beach where the waters are a popular venue for boating enthusiasts. The village is lively, with no shortage of amenities although the pace of life is blessedly unhurried. Of the interesting buildings around Dittisham, its 14th-century church dedicated to St. George , has many interesting features and is well worth taking time to visit. Dartmouth is easily reached by ferry.

Places to visit include: Brixham, Totness, Dartmouth, Bowden House, South Devon Railway or Take a river trip round the estuary.
