The Porthole is a stylish semi detached house 150 yards from the centre of Newton Ferrers.
Facing south across the river, it is excellent spacious accommodation for relaxing and enjoying the popular village.
Head down the steps from the road and through your gate and leave your coats and boots in the porch.
The kitchen is smart and bright with its granite worktops and little breakfast area for a morning croissant and the papers.
With its soothing colours and polished wood floor, you can curl up and chill out beside the wood burning stove in the sitting room or open the French windows to the sunny terrace on a fine day.
On this level is a bunk bedroom for the youngsters, or head up the steep narrow stairs to two more bedrooms, both with light flooding in from balconies where you can step outside and observe life on the river.
As well as the two balconies, you have the little terrace for sitting out or barbecuing, peacefully sheltered by a pretty wisteria.
Wander into the heart of the village to buy essentials and to eat out at the charming waterside inns, or walk further to National Trust woodland and the scenic cliff top Coast Path.
If you feel like getting more active, take part in wakeboarding or paddle boarding trips, play tennis or go riding.
Beaches at Mothecombe and Wembury are not to be missed, both gems on this South Devon coast.
And for the city bright lights head to Plymouth for interesting history and all sorts of attractions, shops and restaurants.
The Porthole is a smashing cottage for recharging your energy levels over a fabulous view or exploring the area.

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: Neighbouring house has right of access through the garden (rarely used).
