About Gitcombe Estate

Gitcombe is owned and run by Peter O’Brien and his father, Rodney.

We moved here in October 2013 and are delighted to be living in such a beautiful part of the world. Peter lives on site and take great pleasure in welcoming guests to Gitcombe to enjoy a memorable stay with us.

Gitcombe is nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty between Totnes and Dartmouth. Stunning views can be seen from our cottages of the local Devonshire countryside and further afield to Dartmoor.

We have eight stylish cottages which sleep from 2 up to 13 along with heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, hot tub, sauna, steam room, championship size tennis court, soft play area and playroom and an outdoor adventure playground.

All our cottages are baby, toddler and child friendly with built in stair gates, travel cots, high chairs, booster seats, baby baths, children’s cutlery, food blenders and other child friendly touches.

With having only eight cottages Gitcombe is the ideal retreat for peace and tranquillity. Many of our guests return year after year, once discovered Gitcombe is a retreat that is rarely forgotten.

There is so much to do and explore in the area, being so close to an amazingly beautiful coastline, stunning beaches and the chic waterside towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe, not to mention an abundance of attractions to suit all ages… South Devon is the perfect destination.

So whether you’re an expert surfer, nature fanatic, avid walker, food expert, beach lover, professional rock pooler, skilled mountain biker the South Hams has it all.

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!
