The property

This wonderful detached house is elevated by beautiful views in Newton Ferrers, with river frontage bringing the relaxing waters to your doorstep, and a comfortable interior where you can admire it all from.

Bring along the family to appreciate this cottage in its entirety, the perfect place to celebrate an occasion or simply enjoy some quality time together.

Timbers sits in its own large plot, totally private and hidden from the road.

Four double bedrooms, a snug room, three bathrooms, a large lounge, dining room, fully fitted kitchen and utility room, bring the accommodation to life, with plenty of space for everyone to relax and appreciate the luxury surroundings.

Outdoors, the garden has several areas to unwind, whether you wish to be under the sun, or taking shade.

Its south facing aspect is perfect for watching the comings and goings on the creek and Yealm Pool.

Timbers also benefits from having its own tidal slipway down to the foreshore.

Sleeping a maximum of 8, this is a one-of-a-kind holiday retreat.

Newton Ferrers is a tranquil haven just 10 miles from the urban sprawl of Plymouth.

Surrounded by ancient woodland and creeks, the village of Newton Ferrers lies on the banks of the calming Yealm estuary.

It’s a hidden gem packed with wildlife and has a secret, refreshing atmosphere.

If you envision thatched cottages and a lovely village pub in the centre, then this getaway is a picturesque place to stay whatever the season.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
