  • "Wow! Moon Lizard is a wonderful place to stay."

    It is immaculately clean and furnished with the highest quality products. Wendy and Jamie have done an amazing job of making the place feel very luxurious and environmentally sustainable. The views are exceptional and the hosts provided faultless hospitality. We would definitely recommend the place and would stay here again. Thank you Wendy and Jamie.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Moon Lizard."

    The whole space has been very well through out. The fixtures and fittings are finished to a high standard. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, as is the whole house, and the treats left for us were a very tasty and thoughtful touch. The living space is great for casual entertaining, and suits all ages. The little nook proved useful for the annoying (and inevitable) unfinished bits of work. Although we didn’t venture out much due to poor weather, the outside space was great for the smalls of our group to get a bit of fresh air between downpours, and we imagine would be fabulous during the summer. As mentioned by another reviewer, we had no mobile service and I would recommend that before arrival any documents be made available offline to help speed up initial entry. Once connected, the WiFi was more than adequate. Huge thank you to Wendy and Jamie for the great communication, too. I hope all your guest enjoy their stay as much as we did ours.

  • "Splendid modern home."

    Well equipped. Comfortably warm (essential for late October holiday). Lovely views. Very accommodating owners who lived next door. Ship Inn and The Swan provide great meals nearby, though we did most of our own catering. Highly recommended.

  • "Absolutely perfect for our family holiday; across 3 generations, with the youngest aged just 9 months."

    The bedroom configuration options meant we could have 3 double bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. Always a tricky thing to find. The property was spotlessly clean, and extremely comfortable. We were blessed with good weather, and the bi-fold doors were fabulous, allowing the outside in, and connecting the outside space to the open plan living area. The office area was an unexpected bonus, as one of the party could continue working from home at times (he is self-employed, I hasten to add!) We didn't venture far, and found the village to be very peaceful, with friendly inhabitants.

  • "We had a lovely week at Moon Lizard across 3 generations."

    The cottage was very comfortable and had everything you needed. A good location with lots of things to see and do. Thank you for the lovely cake you left and perhaps some milk would be useful to just be able to make a drink after the journey. Lots of good recommendations for eating and we tried several of them.

  • "Lovely clean and modern style property."

    Easy to spend a week relaxing and nice views of the coast from first floor. Like the open plan dining and living space which is ideal for cooking and watching TV whilst chatting with the family. Useful office space area and internet which I found helpful to keep up with running my various tennis league websites updating scorecards etc! Area around the property is nice although took some getting used to the narrow streets and parking challenges but guess you have to expect that in small cosy coastal villages. Met Wendy the owner who lives next door. Happy to offer any help and advice. Would recommend.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Newton Ferrers in this lovely accommodation."

    There was ample space for our family of six and all three generations with lovely big windows looking out on a very special view of the harbour. The house was very comfortable and well equipped to feel like a home from home. All three generations were well catered for with things to do in the local area including beaches, walks, a lovely farm shop, fantastic pubs, lovely bike ride in Plymbridge forest and we would recommend a visit to Tinside Lido too! The property isn't far from Plymouth itself where there is a lovely seafront, National Aquarium and lots more that we didn't get round to doing! All in all highly recommended and thank you to the very kind owners for being very quick to respond to any queries.

  • "The house was lovely, well equipped and so peaceful."

    Moon Lizard had everything you could want for a relaxing holiday although, personally, we didn’t find the sofas very comfortable, they felt like you were being pushed off all the time. Thats not meant as a criticism at all, we hope its a useful comment. The house is in a lovely setting looking over the River Yealm and there are a lot of walks to explore in the vicinity. Some of the walks include some steep hills so you need to be reasonably fit to do them. The walk across the causeway to Noss Mayo and back relies on knowing the low tide times but is well worth the trip. We chose not to venture far because we just wanted to relax but there is a lot of places you can visit from Moon Lizard. Our hosts, Wendy and Jamie, were very kind and helpful, even taking in an order for us on arrival day and supplying clean bedding and towels midway through our two week stay. We would love to visit again sometime in the future.

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.
