A hilltop location provides Foxenhole Farmhouse with stunning panoramic views across rolling Devon countryside to the river Dart and beyond to the heights of Dartmoor in the distance. This detached former farmhouse has been recently refurbished to a high standard and provides tasteful, very comfortable accommodation with an extensive garden in a beautiful area. Alongside the road, it is a 20 minute walk down the hill to reach Dittisham, a quintessential attractive and unspoilt South Devon village in a tranquil setting overlooking the widest part of the River Dart. There are delightful stone built and thatched cottages with gorgeous views of bright river craft making a splash of colour against a backdrop of densely wooded slopes. Narrow lanes reach down to the beach where the waters are a popular venue for boating enthusiasts. The village is lively with a village shop and two good pubs, one on the waterside where the quay is a favourite spot for crabbing and a tug on a bell rope calls the ferry boatman to collect you to visit Greenways, Agatha Christie’s original home, now part of the National Trust. Dartmouth and Totnes are easily reached by ferry and there are boats for hire, dinghy moorings and a sailing school.

Many people prefer to book a detached property for their holiday. Foxenhole Farmhouse is detached which makes it ideal for extra peace and quiet. It is also beneficial to have a detached property if you are bringing your dog as they are less likely to be disturbed or disturb the neigbours.


GardenOn nice days, when you want to relax you can sit out in Foxenhole Farmhouse's garden and enjoy the sun shine. Children also love the outdoors so it can be a great place for them. Although, with young children you should always check any garden is safe for them.


BBQWhy waste part of your holiday doing the washing up. Foxenhole Farmhouse has a dishwasher installed to save you time, and family arguements, about the washing up. Everybody hates doing the washing up and the last thing you need is a big family arguement about who is going to do the washing up while you are on holiday.
