    Thank you for the feedback, which I have passed on to the cleaning and management team. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We agree about the sofas, which we tried to renew last year but it was impossible to get the deliveries as for so many other things. We shall replace them when we are staying in the house ourselves later this year. Property Owner

The property

St Aubyn Cottage is one of a number of cottages at Rowden Court, a selected development converted from Grade II listed farm buildings near the coastal footpath and rugged cliff walks.

This comfortable 'upside down' cottage is arranged over three floors, sitting mid-row and looking over the shared inner courtyard.

Inside, the welcoming, cosy interior has been well-furnished with pretty fabrics, painted exposed beams and interesting local artwork.

Stepping into the property from the courtyard, you enter a hallway, where you can kick off your boots, and are greeted with three ground floor bedrooms: a double and two twin, with a family bathroom with shower over the bath.

Stairs lead up to the open-plan living room and dining area with seating for up to eight people.

Settle down on the comfy sofas and enjoy the benefits of the electric fireplace keeping you warm during those chilly evenings while you watch TV, play games or read a book from the bookshelf. The kitchen has an impressive, well-equipped set of white fitted units and spacious wooden worktops, ideal for preparing a home cooked meal for the friends or family.

Further stairs lead up to the second floor and the enormous master bedroom with a king-size bed, TV/DVD player, with an en-suite bathroom, bath and separate shower, both with Velux windows, some sloping ceilings and exposed beams.

With a communal games room and laundry facilities, including table tennis, dart board, washing machines and tumble driers, there is nothing this property doesn't have to offer.

It shares a 1½ acre well-maintained garden to the south, a short distance from the cottage, where you can use the tennis court, barbecue and picnic tables, a lovely place to dine together in a natural setting.

The beautiful South West Coast Path is less than half a mile away, Dramatic Stoke Beach with its cliffs is just down the hill, and unspoilt Mothecombe Beach on the Erme estuary is 4 miles along the coast road with a large car park.

These beaches are paradise for your dog, where they can swim, run and play with other dogs without being on the lead.

Birdwatchers and people interested in wildlife will find plenty to interest them in the immediate vicinity, including cirl buntings, peregrine falcons and dolphins! Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are adjoining small villages beside the River Yealm estuary, sheltered by oak-wooded hillsides, and are popular for sailing, walking or just sitting and soaking in the magnificent scenery.

The roads immediately around the villages are mostly country lanes, so sometimes narrow with passing places to allow two vehicles to pass.

You will find local shops and pubs with great food also nearby.

There is a low tide footpath across the creek and local tennis courts and riding stables.

A good quality, stylish and cosy cottage, well-suited for a group of friends or one or two families to share.

About the location


Newton Ferrers 1 mile; Plymouth 10 miles

The charming creek side village of Noss Mayo is hidden away on the banks of the beautiful Yealm Estuary. The area is blessed with many coastal and countryside walks. Local beaches, Stoke and Cellars are just a three-quarters of a mile walk. The village is home to two excellent waterside pubs with river views, both of which offer superb meals using the best of local produce.
Across the water, the village of Newton Ferrers, which has a local butcher, chemist, Post Office and general grocery store, may be reached on foot via causeways at low tide. A seasonal ferry also operates between Noss Mayo, Newton Ferrers and the SW coastal path to Wembury. The surrounding South Hams area is well known for its award-winning, sandy beaches and also for the breath-taking beauty of the Dartmoor National Park. All are all within easy reach, as are interesting towns and villages such as Totnes, Salcombe, Dartington and Modbury. The city of Plymouth with its shops, Marine Aquarium and Barbican quayside area is just 10 miles away.
