At Bridgend, right at the top of the creek which separates Noss Mayo from Newton Ferrers, is this smart terraced cottage, one of nine converted from an old malthouse beside the water.
Modern and stylish, it is excellent accommodation for anyone who wants tranquillity in a lovely setting.
Head upstairs to the open plan living space with its brilliant views of the river and valley sides.
With a smart shiny kitchen and big dining table, it is a sociable area in which to relax.
The three bedrooms are spread over the floor above and the floor below, with a great balcony off the upstairs double.
Outside you have a little shared lawn and you are welcome to use the slipway to launch your boats on to the tidal creek.
This is true boating country and there is nothing nicer than sitting at one of the waterfront pubs to watch life pass by on the water.
If you feel like going further, there are good walks including the scenic South West Coast Path.
You can hire paddle boards and wakeboards or join a trip, play tennis and go horse riding.
You can catch a pedestrian ferry to walk to a secluded beach or head to lovely Mothecombe beach where Sense and Sensibility was filmed.
Gillyweed is a fabulous house full of charm and with idyllic scenery on the doorstep.

About the location
Newton Ferrers 1 mile; Plymouth 10 miles
The tiny, pretty village of Noss Mayo is hidden away on the southern bank of the Yealm Estuary and is home to two good pubs. Across the water is the larger village of Newton Ferrers, and you can get between the two villages by a causeway at low tide and a seasonal ferry that operates a triangular route and calls in at the SW Coastal Path, Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers. Newton Ferrers has a local butcher, chemist and Post Office. The village pub has fantastic views across the water towards Noss Mayo and the creek. 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 10 miles away.
Note: Some restricted height and limited clothes-hanging space in top floor twin bedroom.
