Make a holiday cottage in Newton Ferrers your home away from home

On the southwest coast of Devon lies the small village of Newton Ferrers. Just ten miles from Plymouth, the village boasts a quaint atmosphere and plenty of modern amenities. Newton Ferrers is situated on the River Yealm estuary near neighbouring village Noss Mayo, and its major attraction is the main harbour, locally known as 'The Pool'. Located just off the village centre, 'The Pool' is full of energy in the summer, with lots of tourists enjoying all the available water activities along with the sunshine. During the summer months, a local water taxi also provides frequent transport for tourists and locals alike. HomeAway offers a lovely selection of Newton Ferrers holiday cottages, well suited to travellers of all tastes and budgets.

Holidaymakers often debate on whether to escape to the countryside or the sea; but with holiday cottages in Newton Ferrers, it’s possible to get the best of both worlds, as rentals enjoy proximity to the River Yealm estuary alongside lovely beaches. Amenities such as Wi-Fi, gardens, river views and even tennis courts offer both the convenience of home and the extravagance of a holiday. Ranging in price from £240 - £1,070 per week, the holiday rentals are here comparable to rentals in larger town and cities such as Plymouth.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are several beaches along the River Yealm. Cellar Beach, a lovely secluded stretch made up of a mixture of pebbles and sand, is a fantastic choice for walkers. Parking is available in nearby Noss Mayo, with the beach a gentle half hour stroll away. The walk itself is quite scenic and it is also possible to take a jaunt over to Stoke Beach, a rocky area with some sand where rock pooling and bird watching are quite popular.

-Outdoor activities: A holiday cottage in Newton Ferrers is an ideal choice for outdoor lovers. Explore the Devon countryside on two wheels with Alltrax Cycle Hire, which offers a selection of mountain bikes; or take a good long hike along the Noss Mayo and Revelstone Path, a four-mile walk which takes you through rugged coast, serene estuary, and wooded riverbanks. With wide pathways and optional woodland footpaths, many holidaymakers take advantage of this walkway every day of their visit.

-Family attractions: Stays in Newton Ferrers open the door to plenty of fun for the whole family. The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth showcases the ocean's strangest creatures and takes a closer look at the beauty of the coral reef. The aquarium offers three massive tanks full of 4,000 different animals, as well as 50 live exhibits. With six zones to explore – Atlantic Reef, The Shallows, Explorocean, Mediterranean Sea, Weird Creatures and Coral Seas – family entertainment will last all day.

-Museums: A visit to Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum is a grand way to spend an afternoon. Telling the intriguing tale of historic Kingsbridge, the museum displays a 17th-century schoolroom, an Edwardian pharmacy, a complete Victorian kitchen, and a large farm gallery. Continuing in the spirit of history, Totnes Castle, Dartmouth Castle and Berry Pomeroy Castle, are all within a 20-mile drive of Newton Ferrers holiday homes, as well as other options in the South Hams such as holiday cottages in Noss Mayo, Hallsands and Morleigh.

Lovely, homely converted barn

5 of 5
We were really impressed with this property. The property was clean, decorated beautifully and felt very spacious throughout. It was so peaceful, a real get away from it all location.! There was 7 of us who stayed for a long weekend. The weather was perfect so we had a BBQ every evening. The owner Kevin was so helpful and a great communicator and nothing was too much trouble. Great location to explore the South Hams. Our favourite beaches are Gara Rock, Mill Bay, East Portlemouth and Batham. I would 100% recommend this property and hope to return again soon.
