    • “Have stayed before at this cottage two years ago and pleased to say it was just as good as the first time. If still available next year we would consider returning again.”

    Mr Adcock-Kersting, WATFORD, August 2018

    • “Wonderful cottage with everything you could need provided, even beach stuff and sports equipment. The site itself was peaceful and in easy reach of fabulous beaches and interesting days out. Great for both families and couples a like.”

    Mrs Carroll, Southend On Sea, July 2018

    • “The cottage was well equipped and nicely furnished. The living area was spacious and very comfortable - nice to cook but be in touch with everyone else at the same time!! The seating was plentiful and thoughtfully placed. The views across the fields and hills was just lovely and to wake up to the view bathed in sunshine was amazing. Despite the incredible heatwave the house was cool and welcoming and the thoughtful touches like wine milk coffee etc was much appreciated - if only all holiday rentals were as nice!! The tennis court was a lovely amenity. Location wise, the property was quietly situated a short drive from the little harbours of Nos and Newton along the narrow Devon lanes but well worth the trip down to sit at a harbourside pub and watch the comings and goings of harbour life. Newton has a lovely community shop, another for pies and quiches all home made as well as a little Co Op for all the essentials - so refreshing to spend a holiday without a trip to a supermarket!! We loved shopping locally. We hope to return soon.”

    Mr Wilkin, July 2018

    • “Fantastic location for us. Very good size property plenty of space. Very well equipped especially for young children. Safety gates and cot / high chair provided.”

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.
