About the owners

Peter & Emma

We moved here in October 2013 and are delighted to be living in such a beautiful part of the world. We may be biased, but we think this area, known as the South Hams, is the best bit of Devon! Guests often tell us that they run out of time to fit everything in and need a return visit. We look forward to welcoming you to Gitcombe for a relaxing, unforgettable holiday, whether it be for a luxury family holiday or a special away from it all boutique bolthole!

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • Party on The Picnic Boat along the river Dart – don’t forget your waterproofs!

  • Older children and adults will enjoy the high ropes at Go Ape in Haldon Forest.

  • Catch crabs on Dittisham Bay – pick up your crabbing lines from the toy store on the estate before heading out.

  • Equine enthusiasts will love Cheston Farm for pony rides, riding lessons and moor and beach riding.

  • Head to Totnes, Dartmouth or Salcombe to indulge in a spot of retail therapy followed by a decadent Devon cream tea.

  • Woodlands Adventure Park is the largest in Devon, and has water rides, indoor play and a zoo farm.

  • Plan a day-trip to Blackpool Sands – a beautiful beach with great Vegan cafe and paddle board hire.
