Anchorstone Water Taxi

The Anchorstone Water Taxi is a new service we are very excited to offer for the 2018 summer season.

The Anchorstone Water Taxi is owned and run by Buddy who is the son of the Chef and owner of the Anchorstone Cafe. Having lived in the village of Dittisham his whole life and being brought up on the River Dart as a young child you will be hard pushed to find a more knowledgeable skipper.

The boat ‘Little Pip’ named after Buddy’s daughter Pippa is a beautiful Maritime 21 which is licenced to carry 10 passengers. Its got to be the perfect way on a sunny summers day to visit TheAnchorstone Cafe and the village of Dittisham.
