Named after the woodland below, Dittisham with its reverse level accommodation, offers views to the tor peaks of the moor from the sitting-area with its soft comfy sofas and warming wood-burner.
From the private garden overlooking the valley, you enter the spacious dining-area and well-equipped kitchen, with heated slate and oak flooring throughout, exposed beams and high ceilings.
The ground floor accommodates two stylishly decorated bedrooms, one with a walk-in shower-room, the other with a bath and shower.
Down a quiet narrow lane edged with ancient stone walls and lichen-covered trees, Walkham Valley Cottages offer a really lovely retreat. The owners, who run a smallholding from the main farmhouse, have gone all out to provide the most gorgeous and stylish holiday cottages. High quality beds, sumptuous linens, oak and slate flooring with under-floor heating throughout, stunning bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens – every comfort has been borne in mind to ensure that you have a truly luxurious stay.
The cottages are all quite separate from one another with their own private garden areas. You also have access to several acres of adjoining fields, assuming you are happy to share them with the rare breed Dartmoor Whiteface sheep that call it home. The breathtaking beauty of Dartmoor is all around you. So whatever your preference, sitting back in the garden with a glass of wine in hand and relaxing, off-road cycling, trekking on horseback across the moors, walking, golfing or fishing, all is close by.
