MODERN BEACH STYLE HOUSE WITH STUNNING RIVER VIEWS,AND ACCESS TO COASTAL PATH

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Noss Mayo - Overcreek House

3 bedroom spacious & modern detached house , sleeps 6 +cot , parking and ensuite

·Short Breaks Available - Please contact us for prices

Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

· Direct Access to Fantastic Coastal Walks

· Superb Estuary Views

· Local Pubs, Restaurants and Shops

· Sailing, Riding, Golf, Tennis and Beaches

Overcreek House , which is approached over a short steep drive, is a modern and spacious 3 bedroom, detached property.

From the main living areas there are magnificent views of the river Yealm and all the comings and goings on the water.

The 180 degree views from the two patio doors in the living room take in the hillsides leading up to the cliffs behind Noss Mayo, down to the river Yealm, and across the river to the village of Newton Ferrers.

The views are even more magnificent if you step outside onto the large South/West facing patio .

You can sit and watch the tide come in or out (and ' time' your days' events or your walk across the tidal causeway to Newton Ferrers accordingly), and at night the water shines with the reflected lights of the village

With its comfortable and well equipped interior, Overcreek is a real 'home from home' .

It has the luxury of a 6' Superking size bed and ensuite to Bedroom 1, as well as a good sized family bathroom next to Bedroom 2.

From Overcreek House there is direct access to an abundance of beautiful and varied walks , both short and long - all with stunning views.

Just stroll around Noss Mayo taking in the water views, or walk a little further along the rivers edge, passing the many boats moored in the deep water pool, and on to Cellar Beach to build a sandcastle if the tide is low.

Or take a more strenuous walk up and over the hillside to the clifftops ... most routes pass either The Ship Inn or The Swan (or The Dolphin Inn if you have gone over the river to Newton Ferrers) ... so refreshments are readily available !

If you don't fancy the walk (or have missed the tide !), you can drive round the head of the river to Newton Ferrers to enjoy the views looking back towards Noss Mayo or drive down to The Pool from here.

Alternatively, the Ferryman can take you from and to various places on the river .

If you are after a large sandy beach then Mothecombe is only 10mins drive from Overcreek , and for rock pools Wembury is recommended.

Overcreek House is a lovely base from which to explore the rest of the South Hams , Dartmoor, and parts of Cornwall as well as having fast access to the main Cities of both Plymouth and Exeter.

Overcreek provides comfortable accommodation for 6 people; The Master Bedroom has a 6-foot, Super-King Size Bed and Ensuite shower room. The Second bedroom can either have a 6-foot SuperKing Size Bed , or Twin Singles ( in summer ). The third bedroom has Twin Single Beds. There is also a separate family bathroom.

The fully equipped Kitchen is suitable for completely self catering during your holiday if you wish ,and there are also places to eat out just a few minutes walk from the house.

The Living Room has two sofas, plus comfy armchair and twin Patio doors leading out onto the large balcony .

Overcreek’s patio/balcony is perfect for sitting or eating out, and watching the comings and goings on the water.

Overcreek is situated in the small South Devon village of Noss Mayo, which, together with its twin village of Newton Ferrers, sits on the banks of the River Yealm.

Whilst Noss Mayo has two waterside pubs of its own, a short walk over the tidal causeway, the Voss, takes you to Newton Ferrers with a further Pub, Chemist, Butcher, Post Office with bakery as well as a small Co-op to cater for day-to-day needs.

A ferry also runs further down the river, which can take foot passengers across to the Wembury shore as well as on other river trips by prior arrangement.

Tennis courts are available in Noss Mayo, and Newton Ferrers has Boat hire as well as Sailing and Riding.

Golfers are well provided for with local courses at Wrangaton and Bigbury, and for the more ambitious,

St Mellion, with its two 18 hole championship golf courses, is just 20 miles away.

The historic naval city of Plymouth is close by with its full range of shops as well as attractions such as the Hoe or the National Marine Aquarium, and the incredible tropical domes of the Eden Project are also within reach for a day trip.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Although we've been coming to Devon for more than 30yrs, we've never been to Noss Mayo before - big mistake ! Don't worry, we'll keep it a secret but we'll be back !

Great house, one of the best we've ever stayed in. Thanks

EXCELLENT LOCATION, STUNNING PEACEFUL VIEWS.

  • 5 out of 5
Property very clean, bright and airy. Spent a lot of time on balcony with glass of wine/beer enjoying surroundings. Ship Inn provided us with good food/beer on a number of occasions with our family who live nearby. Lots of places/beaches to visit close at hand. Would strongly recommend Overcreek House to others.

A BEAUTIFUL, LIGHT, SPACIOUS AND COMFY HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in this home. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful village, in a beautiful part of the world in a welcoming comfortable, well equipped, clean home, then this is for you. We spent lots of hours exploring Dartmoor and the surrounding areas. We got to take in the Dartmouth Regatta, the noss mayo regatta, the noss may beer race, the noss mayo fete and much more. We ate at The Ship and enjoyed takeaways and early evenings drinks in The Swan. We enjoyed walks to Wembury Beach, Stoke Beach and Cellar Beach. We also did lots of crabbing on the Quay and the causeway.
Just a brilliant time had by me and a my family. We will be back I'm sure.

A BEAUTIFUL, LIGHT, SPACIOUS HOME

  • 5 out of 5
We had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks at this holiday home. It was clean, spacious, well equipped and the beds were very comfy indeed. We spent 2 weeks playing in natures playground, enjoying lots of trips to Dartmoor including Dartmeet, Haytorvale Tor, Chagford, Widecombe in the Moor and Ashburton. The walks to Stoke Beach, Wembury Beach and Cellar Beach are a must! We enjoyed meals at The Swan, take aways and early evenings drinks at the Swan and crabbing from the Quay and the causeway.
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful village, in a beautiful part of the world in a beautifully comfortable home then this is for you! Can't recommend it enough. We'll be coming again!

GORGEOUS VIEW! SPACIOUS, MODEM AND WELL EQUIPPED

  • 5 out of 5
Clean and fresh with a quality feel. Very comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. Lots of brochures and maps etc and even a mobile phone incase you get no signal with yours!

The view from the terrace - amazing, we spent every night sat out there watching the tide turn in the sun, with a glass of wine.

Thanks for the shortbread and milk, nice touch!

And I agree with the earlier reviewer, you do get used to the hairpin drive and even come to enjoy the challenge!

A lovey place to stay to venture locally and further afield. 2 pubs within 2 mins walk, who could ask for more.

Thanks for sharing your home Lucie!

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your review of Overcreek House , we always love hearing how much our guests have enjoyed themselves.

Noss Mayo is such a special place, not known to many, but an absolute gem.

As you say, the views from the house are just stunning...no need to leave the house to have a fabulous holiday !

We like to keep the house spotlessly clean and fresh, the beds are the most comfortable we could find and all linens are replaced regularly...we like our guests to enjoy a comfortable and luxurious holiday ...we think they deserve it !

Photographs alone can never do justice to the views that are not just from the house but all around, wherever you go.

The amazing character and ambience of the village can never be fully portrayed to prospective guests .... You have to go there to experience just how fantastic it really is and our number of returning guests is a recognition of this.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for your kind review.
It is difficult to show in the photos just how stunning the views from Overcreek House really are, and to portray to potential guests how much the house is a really comfortable and modern home from home.
We went to great lengths to make sure that we provided everything that we ourselves would really like in an ideal holiday home, right down to the Superking size bed.
The few photos on the website can never do justice to the beautiful views , walks, and beaches that are immediately on our doorstep...not to mention the good food, or as you have pointed out, the friendly an welcoming nature of Noss Mayo.
We look forward to seeing you again later in the year.

MILLION DOLLAR VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in Noss Mayo in June 2012. The house is perfect and has everything you could want or need. It is well decorated and has a million dollar view of the creek and surrounding hillside houses. The steep driveway grows on you and before long you will master it easily. I recommend Overcreek House to you.

Noss Mayo

The small South Devon village of Noss Mayo, together with its twin village of Newton Ferrers, sits on the banks of the river Yealm and taking a holiday here is like taking a wonderful step back in time.

Overcreek House has magnificent views of the river Yealm (pronounced 'Yam' locally), and with its comfortable and modern interior, is a lovely base from which to explore the varied Devon coastline and countryside.

From the quiet banks of the river beneath National Trust Woodland, to the dramatic Coastal Footpath overlooking the Mewstone and out to sea, there are amazing views and walks (long or short) directly from the house, and wherever you turn.

Sit on Popes Quay outside the local pub and keep an eye on the children 'crabbing', or walk along the rivers edge taking in the views along the way to the local beach known as Cellars.

Alternatively, hop on board with the Ferryman if you don't fancy the walk,and he will drop you at the beach ( either Cellars or Wembury), and collect you later.

Noss Mayo has two waterside pubs of its own, both with fantastic views over the river ; The Ship is well known for its excellent 'Gastro' food, and The Swan serves a good selection of beers and has Live Music from time to time.

A short walk over the Tidal Causeway takes you to Newton Ferrers with a further Pub, Tea Shop, Chemist, Butcher, Post Office and Co-op.

You may be more than happy not to leave the villages at all during your holiday, but if you would like to explore further afield...

The wide sandy beach of Mothecombe is just 10mins drive from Overcreek House ..car park , toilets and cafe close by.

The historic naval City of Plymouth is 10 miles away with its full range of shops and attractions such as the National Marine Aquarium , dry Ski Slope, Cinema, and Swimming Pool.

The recently refurbished Lido,and the famous Smeaton's Tower will be found on The Hoe.

This area is just a short walk (or even shorter drive), from the main shopping precinct of Plymouth, but boasts a fantastic parkland setting with amazing views of Plymouth Sound.

The Barbican area of Plymouth, with its ancient cobbled streeets and eclectic mix of art galleries is great for an afternoon or early evening stroll, and has some great restaurants if you want to linger.

From Plymouth you can also board the small Torpoint Ferry for a trip to the beaches of Kingsand or Cawsand, or get on the Foot Ferry across to the delightful Mount Edgecumbe Estate.

Well known areas of the South Hams such as Modbury, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe, are also all within very comfortable driving distance for a day trip.

Dartmoor National Park is under half an hour away by car, and the Eden Project and several National Trust Properties (including Cotehele) are also within easy driving distance.
