Make your way to the glorious River Dart and the beautiful surrounding countryside, where you will find Ditsum Hideaway ('Ditsum' is the local abbreviation of Dittisham, our nearby waterside village). This deluxe, high quality, eco-friendly escape is just perfect for a tranquil holiday with three of your favourite people, with plenty of south Devon adventures within easy reach too.

Step inside to discover the superbly appointed and luxuriously decorated open plan living space. The stylish kitchen-area has everything you'll need for rustling up a feast along with a beautiful dining space, a sumptuous mustard yellow corner sofa and a cosy wood-burner, rounded off perfectly with captivating views across the countryside and the tidal River Dart. You're sure to spend many an hour simply gazing out at those views… The attention to detail doesn't stop there, you'll even find lovingly chosen local art from Dartmouth based Bert and Buoy on the walls.

There are two gorgeous bedrooms to choose from. Bedroom one is pretty in pink, with a 'zip and link' bed, which can be made up as a super-king or a twin. Bedroom two has an opulent super-king bed, with glass doors for more of those wonderful country views. There's also an en suite shower-room with gorgeous deep blue tiles and a spacious shower. Bedroom one has use of the gorgeous shower-room.

Outside there's a fabulous, sheltered decking area, with a dining-table and chairs, a great spot for al fresco breakfasts, suppers and evening drinks. There's also a barbecue, perfect for cooking up a feast on a warm summer's evening.

Ditsum Hideaway's eco credentials are rather impressive. The Hideaway has been crafted from sustainably sourced red cedar with a sedum roof to encourage wildflowers and wildlife, and there are ground source heat pumps and electric car charging points installed. The owners have put in place a number of initiatives to protect the local environment, including creating over 350 metres of habitation for bats and other wildlife, planting trees and a range of native plant and native wildflower species to provide for bees and other wildlife, and conserving a badger set.

If you're looking to explore, there's lots of adventures to be had here. Paddleboard or kayak on the river, wild swim or wander along the riverbank exploring the many coves and creeks. You'll find the many hotspots of south Devon within easy reach, too - whether you prefer stomps along the coast path, trying out a new watersport, wandering around the pretty towns and villages or spending a leisurely afternoon on the beach. Some of our favourite places to explore include Brixham, Salcombe, Totnes, Stoke Gabriel and Kingsbridge, and you can take the passenger ferry over to Dartmouth for a wonderful day out in a fantastic town with plenty of eateries, independent shops, and two gorgeous coves. A shorter ferry ride will take you to the picturesque riverside village of Dittisham, where you'll find superb places to eat and drink including the Ferry Boat Inn and Anchorstone Cafe. Agatha Christie's holiday home, Greenway, is on your doorstep and with plenty of walks to enjoy directly from the Hideaway you can enjoy many fantastic car-free days out.
