  • "We thought that it was so nice and local to lots of lovely beaches that we had to book it again fkr the end of the year."

  • "Fantastic house, in a great location."

    We did lots of walking from the house including the coastal path via Noss Mayo. The house was modern, clean and well equipped and the fire was a lovely surprise as there are no photos of it on the website. I needed to work from the house for a couple of days and although there is a desk in the 4th bedroom upstairs there is no WiFi. Apart from that it was a perfect break.

  • "2nd time staying here, and still a fantastic space to stay in!"

    Equipped and finished to a really high standard, and Sykes communicated well; we were also allowed a slightly earlier arrival and later depart, which was much appreciated. We'll be back!

  • "This was a lovely place to stay for half term."

    The house is modern and furnished very well. The three bathrooms made it easy for three generations of family and we all enjoyed the space and open plan living area. The location was ideal with a short walk into the village where there were local shops and a pub. We all enjoyed it so much we have already booked for next year.

    Really roomy with a great outdoor space as well. A stroll down to the harbour with lovely views over the estuary from The Swan Inn!

  • "Very clean, well maintained and spacious cottage in an ideal location close to the centre of the village."

    Especially good cooking facilities with plenty of utensils and efficient heating for those cooler nights. Very relaxing lounge area and comfortable bed. The cottage is listed as dog friendly which gave us some concern as we are not dog lovers but everything was clean and odour free which is not always the case so a special thank you to the cleaning team.

    Beautifully furnished, warm, comfortable and better equipped than our home!

  • "This is not a Holiday Cottage its a home from home it has everything you could want and more, its finished and equipped to a very high standard."

    Very specious plenty of seating and a cool wood burner in the open plan living area. We where blessed with the weather and recommend the 20min walk on a night to the other side of the estuary to enjoy food and drinks at the two pubs rather than taking out the car.

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.
