    “Thought description of house was ...”

    Thought description of house was misleading. Website and photos somehow convey that large garden is easily accessed from property, i.e. on doorstep, whereas it is, in fact, the other side of two courtyards and surrounding properties, so instead of just wandering out with a bbq and bottle of wine, we didn’t actually bother to use it all! ...

    Thought description of house was misleading. Website and photos somehow convey that large garden is easily accessed from property, i.e. on doorstep, whereas it is, in fact, the other side of two courtyards and surrounding properties, so instead of just wandering out with a bbq and bottle of wine, we didn’t actually bother to use it all! Property very well stocked in terms of implements, cutlery, china, pans, dishes, etc, (no corkscrew, so glad I brought my own), and comfortable chairs, beds and so on. We really appreciated large, fresh milk in fridge on arrival. However, the only really decent bedroom in the house is the top room, which is highly luxuriously comfortable when compared to those on ground floor, which are cramped and foisty. GF bathroom is nice, but the property smells damp and clothes, towels, etc do not dry out down there, and there is not enough storage space for a family of 7, as we were. Position of property is lovely and local villages and pubs are excellent, with quite easy access to many places. We had a lovely holiday, partly because of really good weather, but would not like to stay here when it’s cold and damp outside, so probably would not return to this property.

The property

High in farmland a mile from the pretty village of Noss Mayo and ½ mile from the sea at Stoke with its splendid cliffs, Coast Path and cove beach is St Aubyn House; a smart, three-storey, Grade II listed 'upside down' cottage, sitting mid-row and looking over the shared inner courtyard.

Inside is stylish and contemporary with quality furnishings and fabrics, painted beams and interesting artwork.

There are three ground-floor bedrooms – a double and two twins (one zip-linkable to 6’ double on request).

On the first floor the open-plan living/dining area has a long oak table, ideal for gathering together, comfy sofas and an electric ‘living flame’ fire.

A neatly fitted galley-style kitchen area provides everything you'll need to cater for the family.

At the top of the house, on the second floor is the enormous master bedroom suite, with a huge bed, sofa bed (for alternative sleeping) and an en suite bathroom.

Outside is a 1½ acre shared garden with a barbecue and picnic table, and a games/laundry room with table tennis, darts, washing machine, tumble drier - (extra charge), courtyards and hard tennis court so you'll never want for something to entertain.

Further afield, don your walking boots and take the low tide footpath across the creek, head into unspoiled National Trust woodland or along the cliff top Coast Path.

For the more adventurous, why not try your hand at wakeboarding or paddleboarding, play tennis or go horse riding.

And of course for sand and surf you are spoiled for choice with lovely beaches all around the South Hams.

St Aubyn House is the perfect spot for recharging your batteries, being together as a group or exploring this pretty part of Devon.

About the location

NEWTON FERRERS

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.
