As per your other thread, no there isn't. Dittisham has in effect no useful bus service

Thank you.

Looks as if the only way is by ferry from Dartmouth to Dittisham then?

Or cab but that would be a lot more expensive!

Bus from Totnes to Dartmouth and then take the small Dittisham to Dartmouth water taxi service, as you will know the area is all about the river, and this really is the very best way to get about. Be sure to book your return ferry with the ferryman though as the water taxi's get very busy, otherwise it will be a cab fare home which will be expensive.

You can get a bus to Kingswear from Brixham ( No 22 I think?), then the ferry over to Dartmouth, then a ferry to Dittisham. If I were you I'd do Totnes another day, rather than try to cram it all into one day.Buses from Brixham go to Totnes very frequently. There is always the 'Round Robin' - steam train from Paignton to Kingswear, ferry to Dartmouth, then ferry to Totnes and an open top bus ride from Totnes back to Paignton. Quite expensive but a lovely relaxing way to spend a day, subject to nice weather of course. Obviously would only pass Dittisham rather than stop there.
