Views across the River Dart can be enjoyed from the lawns and bedrooms.The property is on a quiet single track lane just 75m level walk from the public car park, and is situated in the centre of Dittisham, one of the most charming and unspoilt villages in the South Hams.

The picturesque waterfront, ancient church, two friendly pubs, well stocked village shop and the renowned Anchorstone riverside cafe are all within easy walking distance of Thornwell Cottage, making it the ideal holiday haven at any time of year. Ring a bell at the waters edge just minutes from the property to summon the ferry to Greenway, former home of Agatha Christie, hire a boat to explore the river yourself, or take the passenger boat from Dittisham to historic Dartmouth with its wonderful range of shops and restaurants.
