The ancient village of Dittisham surrounded by glorious countryside and the river Dart running by makes a lovely spot for a self catering holiday at any time of year. The dinghy pontoon on the Dittisham Quay will provide children with endless fun crabbing and just along the river bank is The Ham, an open green space with swings and lots of room to play and have a picnic. Right on the Dittisham quayside are the Ferry Boat Inn and the Anchorstone Cafe, both serving excellent local produce. There is a village shop and Post Office operating within the Red Lion Inn at the top of Dittisham. Dittisham is situated at the widest part of the River Dart making it an ideal place for learning to sail and many families return year after year to mess about in boats. Dittisham has two sailing schools for lessons and boat hire.
