The picturesque village of Dittisham once known for its unique plum trees offers a pedestrian ferry service to Agatha Christie's Greenway.

The estate is now run by the National Trust.

It is testimony to the Dittisham's attraction, that two long distance hiking routes, the Dart Valley Trail & the John Musgrave Heritage Trail, run through the village.

Check out Greenway and Dittisham Ferry.

Car access to Dittisham is somewhat tricky - we recommend the turn off from the A3122 to Dowton.

When entering Dittisham do not take a lane to the ferry but follow directions for Car Park and toilets.

Alternatively, you can walk to Dittisham from Dartmouth - see below.

Point of Interest The village is believed to have been named after Deedas, a Saxon lord.
