Homelands, a most comfortable and attractive detached property, enjoys the best that the South Devon waterside village of Dittisham can provide. The cottage has secluded gardens with river views, gated parking, a large conservatory/playroom and is a real home from home in this outstanding waterside village. A short walk down the lane leads to a well known waterside inn and the river pontoon where children can spend endless hours 'crabbing' and ferries ply the Dart from Dartmouth to Totnes. This is a superb area for those who enjoy messing around in boats, with plenty to do from river cruises, visits to local National Trust properties, walking the scenic footpaths on both sides of the river and Dartmoor is within an easy drive.

The West Country region
Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South Devon and it's otherworldly pace of life.
This unique area of outstanding natural beauty is particularly popular with sailors and fishermen along with all those with an artistic temperament and who enjoy peaceful tranquillity in a truly beautiful rural environment. Delightful riverside villages such as Dittisham, Tuckenhay, Ashprington and Stoke Gabriel situated in the heart of the South Hams make this area unique. Unspoilt tree-lined banks, secret creeks with countryside sweeping down to the river have been inspirational to many. Walkers, ornithologists and photographers can enjoy the delights of river, estuary and countryside and boat trips from Dartmouth will take you up river to Totnes with its winding streets, historic town walls and ancient castle.
