Single-storey Gamehouse Cottage is situated on the historic Membland estate which once hosted England’s aristocracy and royalty, attached to a building in a tranquil hamlet a mile on the coastal side of Newton Ferrers.
Now modern and smart, it is welcoming accommodation in this scenic and popular area.
From the hall, you will find your relaxing sitting room where deep and comfy leather sofas are arranged around the cosy wood burning stove.
The good sized kitchen is smart and well equipped, with a dining area for family mealtimes and a door to open to the terrace on sunny days.
The three bedrooms are all smart and comfy, and peaceful places to settle down after a day walking the Coast Path or playing on the beach.
Outside, the garden is safely enclosed and a lovely place to sit on the suntrap terrace or stretch out on the lawn surrounded by trees.
This is a popular boating area, so why not join the locals on the river and bring your boat which you can park at the front of the cottage?
If dry land is more reassuring, there are amazing walks along the cliff top, including along the historic nine-mile Lord Revelstoke’s carriage drive which was designed to show off the spectacular surroundings to his guests and the Coast Path which takes you to lovely secluded coves.
For more activity, you are spoiled for choice, with paddle boarding, tennis and riding all available locally.
Mothecombe is a splendid sandy beach where movies have been filmed and Wembury has rock pools and a marine conservation centre.
For city fans, Plymouth has all the buzz and amenities you could wish for.
Gamehouse Cottage is an excellent cottage for walking and enjoying the seaside and waterside inns.

About the location
Plymouth 8 miles.
A tranquil, picturesque village in the South Hams area of Devon, on a bend of the River Yealm leading up from the South Devon coast (1 mile). The perfect haven for sailors, for those who love messing about near water and for those who appreciate stunning and civilised countryside. There is a local butcher, chemist, post office and grocer in Newton Ferrers and an organic farm shop just two miles away. The village pub, with fantastic views across the water towards Noss Mayo and the creek, serves good food and drink. 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 8 miles away while beautiful Totnes with its 'alternative' view on life is a must. If the beach rather than boats is what you seek, you won't do better than the beautiful sands at Mothecombe and Bigbury just a few miles down the road. Both are accessible by road or boat from Newton Ferrers. There are a number of excellent golf courses nearby.
Note: This property sleeps a maximum of 6 adults.
