Lovely cottage, super clean and very well equipped , tranquil, beautiful location. very friendly, helpful owners. Ideal for walking ,exploring stunning Dartmoor.

Beautiful cottage stay! We all had a wonderful time and would happily return. Thanks again

I would highly recommend this cottage. It's perfectly situated for walks on Dartmoor. The cottage itself is beautiful and very cosy and comfy. The outside areas and garden was great as we brought our dog on holiday as well.

One of the most comfortable, well equipped and warm cottages we've ever stayed in. In a fantastic position - so many walks from the front door. Lots of very good house and local information and maps provided. Masha, Luke, Nicholas and Tess couldn't have made us more welcome. Thank you!

We are delighted to read your lovely comments and we are sure Masha, Luke, Nicholas and Tess were too! It sounds as if you had some lovely walks and a great time exploring. We so hope to welcome you back so that you can continue your explorations. Sarah, Customer Support

We had a lovely week in a super location. The cottage fit out is first class, but don't expect to be comfortable in the bath ! A fox staring out our dog through the french window on the first morning was a great wake up !

Lovely cottage, lovely area, book it!

Excellent property, probably best we have ever stayed in.

Deep, deep in the Devon countryside is a renovated barn that sets a very high standard of comfort.

The cottage was absolutely perfect, luxurious, spotlessly clean and faultless in every single way and Masha and Luke the most delightful, warm and welcoming hosts. I will definitely be planning a return visit to such an idyllic and perfect cottage.

Every little detail had been thought of. The house was immaculate with beautiful finishing touches. The hosts were on hand and very friendly. Absolutely loved our stay!

We had a fantastic stay at Dittisham cottage. The cottage is self was very clean and nicely decorated, with everything we needed. The surroundings are beautiful, with some great views, the pictures don't do it justice!

The location is also great, you are on Dartmoor and there are some amazing walks starting from the front door. It is also a short drive to amenities such as pubs, shops and a bakery.

Great location and the cottage was to a very good standard and specification.The grounds of the farm are beautiful, and there are some handy footpaths near the property, as well as being a short drive to some amazing parts of the moor.

We're so pleased to see that you enjoyed the area as much as the cottage itself - we have to agree that this is such a beautiful spot with so much to offer visitors. Tanya, Customer Support

A lovely property one of the best I have found on Dartmoor

Owners thought of everything. Great attention to detail and beautiful throughout.

Dittisham What a beautiful place! We’ve stayed at many Classic Cottages properties over the years and this has to be the best. The barn conversion accommodation has been very sympathetically done to retain all the old features yet bringing it up to a very high modern standard. All the appliances, furniture, fixtures, fittings and kitchen ware are immaculate and the cleaner deserves a medal for cleanliness. Nice touch of wine, fruit, milk, hot croissants and jam as a welcome (in fact we were a little early and the lovely owner brought the hot croissants to us as we were unpacking]. If you love walking, peace and quiet and somewhere off the beaten track you’ll fall in love with this place as we did. Oh and Tess the owner’s dog is a darling too. We had terrible weather but it didn’t spoil our stay in any way. The local pub The Walkhampton Inn is well within walking distance and although it doesn’t look great from the outside the owners, selection of wine/beer/cider and food were all very good. Sad to leave but we hope to come back next year.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience - it certainly sounds as though you had a truly wonderful time and we very much hope to welcome you back again in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

An idyllic, peaceful location, with Dartmoor Park literally on the doorstep. The enclosed fields surrounding the property were great for our dog. The cottage has everything you need, is extremely comfortable and finished to an extremely good standard. From the welcoming croissants and coffee, to local information and walks provided, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

Wonderful holiday cottage in a great location. We hope to return.

We had a lovely first family holiday in this beautiful cottage with our 4 month old and dog. Although close to the owners and other properties on the site, the cottage still felt nice and secluded with its own garden space and lovely views out. The cottage was done to a really high quality so our stay felt quite luxurious. We loved the guest book put together by the owners with lots of helpful info in it from local walks to recommended shops, pubs and activities - it made planning our days so easy! Plus there were reassuring details in there such as the nearest vets. All in all we had an amazing stay making great memories so thanks very much!

Fantastic cottage, cosy but up to date, beautiful. Could have moved in and never left, it was wonderful. Thank you.

if you want to get away from it all - this is the place for you. A cosy retreat with great bedding!

Classic in style, modern in comfort - very recommendable!

Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. Very well equipped, clean and welcoming.

This holiday cottage is pure luxury - the pictures don't do it justice - it is roomier than I imagined. The cottage was more than a home from home. The owners are warm friendly and welcoming. They provided a packed fruit bowl , red wine and artisan cheeses. There was even warm home cooked fresh bread awaiting us. We stayed over christmas and there was a christmas tree and fairy lights arranged for us. We didn't want for anything and had a truly marvellous stay. Location is stunning and I highly recommend a stay there.

Location close to villages and Tavistock for all the visitor may need but also the ability to walk direct from the property out onto Dartmoor A superb luxurious property in a delightful location. A great deal of thought provided by the owners when planning the facilities provided including internal fixtures, fittings and décor . Warm friendly welcome. Would definitely hope to return.

We had a short-break in Autumn half-term. This is a lovely, comfortable house and the owners made us feel very welcome. The house is well-equipped for a sunny day or for staying in. It was great to walk out of the door and up onto the edge of Dartmoor, walking along the path of the disused quarry railway and admiring the view. We enjoyed trips to Tavistock, Princetown, Lydford Gorge and (on our way home) to Castle Drogo.

Beautifully furnished, very comfortable cottage with everything you need.

The cottage has been beautifully renovated and the finish and furnishings are all of high quality. The owners are very friendly and always happy to help. A beautiful spot for an 'away from it all' break.

Beautiful place and surroundings. Cottage very well presented and maintained and equipped, super clean and just lovely. Owners delightful and helpful and welcoming. Would definitely go again. Ais and Arjen Beautifully appointed and well equipped and comfortable, infomation provided by the owners excellent. Great wifi connection. Stunning rural location but accessible to really lovely towns and beaches, lots to do.

The owners created a beautiful, quiet setting where every cottage has it's own private terrace/garden. They were also very friendly and helpful. The cottage is lovely furnished and very comfortable. We've had a great stay and would certainly recommend this cottage to others.

Great proximity to Tavistock. The owners were lovely and really went over and above. On arrival we had artisan cheese, wine, home made cookies, duck eggs from the farm and beautiful fresh flowers. The cottage is in a wonderful, secluded spot with breathtaking scenery and fabulous walks. The new interior was utterly charming (and super clean!). Our favourite cottage stay in years. We loved the gorgeous farm dog too.

Absolute luxury. Have had many holidays with Classic, but this particular location and owners were exceptional. Luke and Masha have done a fantastic job at creating beautiful interiors and ensuring everything you require is to hand in order for you to enjoy your holiday. Hope to return for another break at Dittisham later in the year.
