The property

This elevated and spacious detached family home is situated in the picturesque village of Noss Mayo, in the spectacular South Hams coastal area of south Devon.

This modern property has outstanding views over Noss Mayo and Newton Creek and is close to the stunning South Hams beaches and the South West Coast Path, ideal for a family wishing to explore this beautiful part of the country.

There are several steps up from the driveway to the entrance, and once inside, most of the accommodation is on one level.

The delightful, light and spacious sitting room has two large comfy sofas and opens to the large balcony, overlooking the village and estuary, with plenty of room to sit at the table and watch the activity below.

The well-equipped kitchen has a large dining area and will be the hub of the cottage, where the family can sit together for breakfast or supper and make the most of their relaxation time together.

On the same level, the master bedroom has a king-size bed with en-suite shower, and the two twin rooms share a family bathroom.

The lower ground floor, comprises a useful utility room, a cloakroom and garage, which is ideal for parking a car or storing canoes.

Two kayaks have been provided for the more energetic guests to use.

The village is a short stroll from the house, where there is a good pub, shops, tennis courts and a children’s playground.

The River Yealm is surrounded by National Trust rolling countryside and includes Lord Revelstoke’s Nine Mile Ride, a glorious cliff-top walk in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the South Hams.

The Yealm Estuary is very popular with yachtsmen for both cruising and dinghy sailing, and racing occurs regularly on the river, either side of high water.

For anyone who can tear themselves away from this idyllic location, the charming towns of Modbury, Salcombe and Kingsbridge are all close by, whilst Plymouth, Dartmouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also all within easy reach.

With so much to do and so many options available, this spacious house is the perfect spot for a holiday at any time of year.

About the location

NOSS MAYO

Newton Ferrers 1 mile; Plymouth 10 miles

The tiny, pretty village of Noss Mayo is hidden away on the southern bank of the Yealm Estuary and is home to two good pubs. Across the water is the larger village of Newton Ferrers, and you can get between the two villages by a causeway at low tide and a seasonal ferry that operates a triangular route and calls in at the SW Coastal Path, Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers. Newton Ferrers has a local butcher, chemist and Post Office. The village pub has fantastic views across the water towards Noss Mayo and the creek. The area is blessed with many walks that meander along the waterside and across the fields, while to the north Dartmoor's high tors and open spaces beckon those who love wild country. The city of Plymouth with its shops, Marine Aquarium and Barbican quayside area is just 10 miles away.
