Dittisham Gardens


Dittisham overlooks the widest stretch of the beautiful River Dart just three miles upstream from Dartmouth. The village, protected from the worst weather by rolling hills and the temperance of the Gulf Stream, is a gardener’s paradise! A group of eight or more gardens will be opening their gates in July. Thatched cottages with gardens, filled with all the old fashioned favourites, look out across the river to Dartmoor in the distance. There are modern gardens too with contemporary planting and terraced gardens clinging to the hillside. Sheep graze quietly on surrounding farmland and the famous Ditsum Plum orchards flourish still. A cream tea and plant stall will complete the afternoon! Read more about the village on
