  • “Clean, cosy, very comfortable, quiet.”

    Getting away from Newton Ferrers was easier from the cottage than it would have been from the village centre.

    Getting away from Newton Ferrers was easier from the cottage than it would have been from the village centre. Handy local shops with friendly staff. Pubs get booked up for meals, but plenty of others in the area. We particularly liked the Rose and Crown at Yealmpton. Wonderful walks from the cottage. Thoroughly to be recommended. Very friendly and helpful owners.

The property

Tucked away at the end of a private drive on the edge of Newton Ferrers, 800 yards from the shops/pub and picturesque creek, two attractive, Grade II listed cottages converted from barns on a 16th cent.

farmstead, once home to the Bishop of Exeter.

The cottages are smart and welcoming with original features, high apex beams, wood floors (rugs) and modern comforts, each with own small garden, beautifully planted for privacy by owners who live in the farmhouse next door (no farming now).

Across the gravelled entrance drive, shared use of lawned garden.

Shared use of washing machine and tumble drier.

Parsonage Farm Cottage is a neat, detached upside down cottage on two levels, said to have been the Bishop's sleeping chamber for the farmhouse behind.

At the front, pretty, enclosed garden (table/chairs, barbecue) with 2 slate steps up to glazed double doors and 2 further steps (top stairgate) up to open-plan living/dining/kitchen, cosy and inviting with smart red sofas, TV/DVD; small kitchen area neatly fitted in one corner (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with handcrafted units.

Downstairs (stairgates), two bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a twin; smart bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

A homely and welcoming base. Newton Ferrers/Noss Mayo: adjoining small villages beside the River Yealm estuary, sheltered by oak-wooded hillsides, popular for sailing, lovely for walking or just sitting.

Essential shops (Newton Ferrers) and good food pubs.

Low tide footpath across the creek.

Tennis courts; riding stables.

Pedestrian ferry to coast walk to Wembury (village), and secluded beach.

Mothecombe (nearest sandy beach by car), 4 miles.

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.

Note: Until autumn 2021 the construction of 9 new buildings will be nearing completion in a field adjacent to the property. Although we don’t believe this will cause a great disturbance, it is likely that guests will be able to hear some associated noise. The building works take place 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. As a goodwill gesture for any possible disturbance, the weekly prices until the end of September (currently) will have a 10% discount applied. If you would like further information about this, please contact us.
