  • "Junket Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped."

    A lot of thought has gone into making it a very relaxing home from home. We really appreciated the spacious parking area, as the options for parking in Noss Mayo are fairly limited. Linda was very helpful when we spoke to her and there was a lovely vase of fresh flowers on the table when we arrived. Would highly recommend Junket Cottage.

  • "From 2 days before we arrived when I received a lovely call from Linda asking if we'd like a cream tea on arrival I knew this would be a fantastic holiday and we weren't disappointed."

    Junket cottage is very much the epitome of the perfect holiday cottage, it's spotlessly clean with every eventuality catered for from logs for the wood burner to soap dispensers in the bathrooms. This is all before I mention the location, on the banks of noss creek where you can watch the rise and fall of the tide in peace and quiet, enjoy a quiet drink or meal at any one of the 3 local pubs, we tried them all, or walk in any direction to various cove beaches. It was our 1st stay at Junket and noss mayo but we'll definitely be back

    Very comfortable and well appointed. Owners communication was excellent and we had all the information required to have a perfect stay. The views from the bedrooms are stunning and the riverside slipway was an absolute godsend for us, allowing us to launch and store our Paddle board and Kayak without having to lug them around. It was also the perfect setting for a BBQ by the water in truly stunning surroundings.

  • "Your insurance is very overpriced."

    You charged a booking fee and then another £35 to postpone due to lockdown. This is disgusting. Our original Xmas week booking for more expensive than the week we moved it to but you did not refund the difference. I will never book with you or your associated companies again. On the plus side, the cottage was great and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Junket Cottage. You contacted us to move your Christmas booking two months before the holiday started. As you know at the time we were dealing with bookings just a few weeks ahead of their start date as Covid restrictions were changing frequently. At that early stage your request to move the holiday to a new date carried the usual date amendment fee and the dates you moved to in May 2021 were slightly more expensive than your original Christmas week, so there was a small additional balance to pay.

    We loved the cottage, well equipped, comfortable and a perfect location. Linda the owner was very attentive and helpful, and left us a bottle of fizz, flowers and an afternoon tea, perfect! Some stunning scenery, countryside and coastal walks from the door and 3 really nice pubs with good food in walking distance. Having parking is essential around there as it’s narrow roads, the location of the cottage means you don’t need to venture too far into the narrow roads of the village, which we were glad of.

    And the location is stunning. (If I was to be super critical I would add that if you want a lot of outdoor space you need to be mindful that there is a small seating area opposite, but for more space you walk down steps to the shared quay side - if you're with small children please note!) But that didn't bother us and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

The property

Junket Cottage is a semi-detached stone cottage overlooking the River Yealm in Noss Mayo.

Just 500 yards from the waterside pubs, and with stylish contemporary style, it offers lovely accommodation for small families or couples.

From the lane, you step up to your front door into the hall.

From here, head into your sitting room with cosy wood burning stove or the smart kitchen where you can enjoy leisurely mealtimes.

At bedtime, head upstairs to the two comfortable bedrooms where you can wake to fascinating views of the river.

Across the lane, with access through the gate to the left hand side of the hedge, you have your outdoor seating area, from which steps wind steeply down to the riverbank.

Here you share a table and chairs on a quay and a slipway and outhaul mooring with one other cottage.

Noss Mayo is perfect for boating fans and you can launch your dinghy on to the water at the public slipway 100 yards from the cottage.

For some different water activity, try paddleboarding or wakeboarding hire or trips, or stay on dry land and walk the woodland or to the cliff top Coast Path.

Along the coast, Mothecombe is a beautiful beach and Wembury is good for rock pooling and its marine conservation centre.

And at the end of the day, chill out in the pubs beside the river.

With its riverside setting and closeness to the popular pubs, Junket Cottage is a lovely place.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

Newton Ferrers 1 mile; Plymouth 10 miles

The charming creek side village of Noss Mayo is hidden away on the banks of the beautiful Yealm Estuary. The area is blessed with many coastal and countryside walks. Local beaches, Stoke and Cellars are just a three-quarters of a mile walk. The village is home to two excellent waterside pubs with river views, both of which offer superb meals using the best of local produce.
Across the water, the village of Newton Ferrers, which has a local butcher, chemist, Post Office and general grocery store, may be reached on foot via causeways at low tide. A seasonal ferry also operates between Noss Mayo, Newton Ferrers and the SW coastal path to Wembury. The surrounding South Hams area is well known for its award-winning, sandy beaches and also for the breath-taking beauty of the Dartmoor National Park. All are all within easy reach, as are interesting towns and villages such as Totnes, Salcombe, Dartington and Modbury. The city of Plymouth with its shops, Marine Aquarium and Barbican quayside area is just 10 miles away.
