Thatch Cottage is a charming, 16th Century, Grade II listed, end of terrace, petite thatched period cottage of considerable character. This gorgeous romantic retreat has been totally refurbished and is very comfortably furnished and equipped and ideal for couples or a small family. Situated in the pretty and peaceful hamlet of Capton just 1.5 miles from Dittisham, South Devon there are footpath walks through Capton Wood of medieval origin and from the village down to the riverside. The lovely village of Dittisham sits on a wide meander of the River Dart and is a haven for those who love messing about in boats. From here there are river trips, boat hire and a river ferry that plies to the historic Naval port of Dartmouth and up-stream to the Elizabethan town of Totnes. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the marvellous facilities at the Dartmouth Golf and Country Club, approximately 2 miles away.
