What makes a stay at Dittisham Hideaway unique?

If you're looking for a luxury break in the Devonshire countryside, then you have found the perfect spot. With views over a wooded valley, and in easy reach of the River Dart and the charming port of Dartmouth, this is the ideal location for enjoying a relaxing time away.

Guests have the choice between the site's three bespoke glamping accommodation options. From a cosy shepherd's lodge for a romantic stay for two, to a five person treehouse with its own giant outdoor chess set and table football, there is something to suit everyone!

2 of the shepherds lodges accommodate 2 adults, with 1 luxury king bed and 2 of the lodges will now accommodate 2 adults in the king bed and 2 smaller children on a pull out sofa bed.

Families can also opt to stay in the six person shepherd's lodge. Parents can sleep comfortably in the main lodge whilst up to four children under 16 can stay in the mini adjoining lodge, fitted with two single bunk beds. You can also rest easy as the mini lodge is linked by a camera/sound intercom for peace of mind. 

Outside all of the shepherd's lodges, you will also have your own private terrace with an outdoor wood fired hot tub, loungers, dining table, chairs with a parasol, a fire pit and a double hammock. You will also have access to the communal games barn which includes table tennis, chess or table football.

The treehouses are perfect for a hideaway amongst the canopy. Sleeping up to two adults and three children (under 16), the tree houses each have a king sized bedroom, along with a children's triple bunk bedroom and two bathrooms with power showers. 

Inside you will have a cosy lounge with a wood burning stove and underfloor heating, ideal for chilling on the sofa and watching a film together on the smart TV. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with a Nespresso coffee maker and a small herb garden on your balcony, perfect for home cooking.

The restored 1956 Vintage American Airstream is tucked away in a secluded area of the site in a private woodland setting. The interior is in keeping with the retro feel but with modern appliances including a sound system, combination oven, fridge, ice box, dishwasher, power shower, and even underfloor heating and air conditioning.

There is also a comfortable sofa, breakfast bar and stools, a fitted kitchen and a bathroom. Outside is a private storage cabin with a washing machine/drier. 

Both the treehouses and the Airstream also have a large deck with a dining table, chairs, a parasol, a BBQ, sun loungers, a double hammock, outdoor chess and table football, and a wood fired hot tub.

Inside each of the accommodation options, there will also be WiFi, Egyptian cotton bed linen, towels, essential toiletries and a large bag of logs.

Guests can also all enjoy a complimentary hamper packed with treats, enough for welcome tea/coffee and nibbles, a selection of West Country produce for your first morning's continental breakfast and a complimentary bottle of wine for you to enjoy on a warm sunny afternoon or a cosy winter evening by the fire.

Fires are allowed in the fire pits and to fuel the wood fired hot tubs.

Two small dogs, or one large dog, are welcome in both the shepherd's lodges and the treehouses, but not in the pet-free options or the Airstream.
