The Experience

The tree-lined approach is steep and spectacular; the cottage sits in 11 wondrous acres which overlook the river Dart and Sharpham Estate (local vineyard.) Richard is a gifted gardener and his fascinating garden is yours to explore, with its magical woodland trail and enviable range of hydrangeas. Find a quiet spot to read or absorb the tranquility with tea on the terrace. The house itself is comfortable and calm – rooms look over the sweeping valley and garden. The twin/double room has a balcony and large, recently refurbished bathroom with a walk in shower.  The pretty village, vineyard café and pub are a short walk away.

The house and garden and the big and comfortable sleeping rooms are wonderful. Richard was very friendly and served us the best breakfast on our tour.


A great combination of magic and efficiency

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Richard Pitts & David Sykes

  • The Dart Valley trail goes past the top of the drive. Walk to Dartmouth and get the Ferry or Steam Train back to Totnes.
  • Visit our neighbours the Sharham Vineyard and Dairy. A wonderful way to see the Dart valley whilst tasting local wine and cheese.
  • Enjoy having the garden to yourselves and do ask Richard about any of the unusual trees and shrubs that have taken your fancy.
  • Good N.T properties nearby including Agatha Christie's Greenway and Coleton Fishacre built for the D'Oyly Carte family.
  • There is a wonderful variety of wildlife present in the garden for you to discover.
