    • “Beautiful cottage, perfect for our family holiday (mum, dad, 2 kids and grandparents) Lots of space to spread out and could easily accommodate another 2-3 children - there's a mattress under the single that could be used on the floor, as well as a day bed in the upstairs suite and another mattress there too. Kitchen facilities are well covered, despite being small - had everything we needed, including dish washer, microwave and full size fridge freezer. Showers and baths all wonderfully clean and as you would want them to be. Washing machine and tumble drier proved very handy - located just across the courtyard in the games room. Lovely area, we went on a boat round Plymouth Harbour, visited Cadover Bridge and climbed West Beacon, also went to Lydford Gorge (about an hour drive) Mothecombe beach about 15 minutes away was also beautiful. We had lovely weather at the end of October but there are plenty of rainy day options in Plymouth if needed. All in all a fab little holiday!”

    Mrs Shepherd, Luton, October 2018

    • “The accommodation was excellent and the weather for October surpassed our expectations.”

    Mr Luscombe, Salisbury, September 2018

    • “This is an exceptional property, very well equipped, within a Grade 2 Listed early 19th Century former farmyard.”

    Mr Brown, Waterlooville, September 2018

    • “The cottage was perfect, the finishes very nice, lovely and bright, very comfortable furnishings/beds, very quiet, perfect for a family, the finishing touches were excellent, well stocked including dishwasher tablets, tea towels, towels, bed linen etc. Thank you very much.”

    Mr Simmons, Southampton, June 2018

    • “Furnivals Quail is a beautiful holiday property, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated and furnished. Its in a peaceful location, with access to a beautiful quiet and well-maintained garden. We could happily have stayed another week! The owners have been very helpful and accommodating. We have had a really lovely holiday. Thank you.”

    Mrs Mockford, STOKE-ON-TRENT, May 2018

    • “Had a fabulous week in Noss Mayo, helped of course by the clement weather. Our hosts at Furnivals Quail were helpful and generous. A wonderful welcome to find flowers on the table and a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Thank you so much Phil and Judy.”

    Mrs Crampton, BRISTOL, April 2018

Regional Information

NOSS MAYO 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.
