Sandford House is in the heart of the South Hams countryside yet only a mile away from picturesque Dittisham, famous for its plums and crabbing. Dittisham is set on the edge of the river and it lies in the heart of the rolling South Hams countryside geographically between Totnes and Dartmouth.
Dittisham has two pubs, a village shop and post office and a thriving church, the village is highly popular with those who participate in waterborne activities and has a thriving sailing club, which makes it an attractive village for families.
Sandford House is actually situated in the quiet hamlet of East Cornworthy surrounded by farmland and is within close proximity of Blackness Marine which will be of particular interest to those who own a boat or enjoy sailing.
East Cornworthy is situated approximately one mile 'down stream' of Cornworthy, a small village with no passing traffic, with its own pub. Seven miles up river to the north west, lies the ancient town of Totnes, the limit of tidal navigation, while two miles down river, to the south, is the historic town of Dartmouth which guards the entrance to the sea.
