    • “I thought the accommodation was great, comfortable , great view . The only comment was the sitting room is so cold as there is only two radiators although we had the fire on it was still chilly. This wouldn’t be an issue In other months”

    Mr Townsend, Sewardstonebury, January 2019

    • “This is one of the nicest holiday cottages we have stayed in. It had a very homely feel so we instantly felt relaxed. It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.”

    Mrs Guest, Alresford, October 2018

    • “We had a great holiday at The Porthole. Lovely views from the bedrooms. Extremely well equipped and would definitely go back.”

    Mrs Hedges, Sevenoaks, September 2018

    • “A lovely house in a beautiful location. Tranquil but with everything you need close at hand.”

    Miss Harris, Stockport, September 2018

    • “The house is pretty and comfortable with delightful views from bedrooms upstairs, but disappointing lack of view from patio due to overgrowth of shrubbery etc - suggest owners update featured photo. Facilities within the house were good, beds comfortable, modern bathrooms and quick hot water but would recommend scratched old cooking pans renewed, also midweek the dishwasher failed, which was disappointing! Parking close to the house we found to be hit and miss, as we were out and about every day. However, would recommend this house in a beautiful part of the country!”

    Mr Reeves, Sutton Coldfield, September 2018

    • “The property was just stunning! The views from the bedrooms were amazing. The house was very well equipped and everything we needed to make our say so enjoyable. We explored this stunning part of the country and the local residents in the shops in the village were extremely helpful about places to visit. The Ship Inn in Noss Mayo was fantastic, the food was amazing and we enjoyed two lovely evenings there. In all The Porthole in stunning Newton Ferrers is a truly special place. Thank you.”

    Mr Burness, WINDSOR, August 2018

Regional Information

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.
