Dart Valley Cottages are a self catering holiday cottage agency with a fine selection of holiday cottages in the South Hams a very special part of South Devon. The majority of our self catering cottages are in the Dart Valley reaching from the vibrant little market town of Totnes to the historic maritime port of Dartmouth where the river Dart reaches the sea overlooked by Britannia Royal Naval College.
The river Dart passes by the waterside village of Dittisham, where we have a variety of holiday cottages, the village sees many families returning for their holidays year after year. The river here is an ideal location for learning to sail, the two sailing schools and boat hire in the village are very popular with our guests. On the opposite bank, reached by passenger ferry is Greenway House and Gardens, once the home of Agatha Christie and now managed by the National Trust.
Here in the South Hams, South Devon we feature village cottages in the most picturesque countryside at Blackawton, Chillington and Cornworthy and on our fabulous coastline at Stoke Fleming, Strete, Slapton, Beeson and East Prawle. There is a good stretch of the South West Coast Path to explore discovering secluded coves and the impressive local beaches.
