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.

The property is gorgeous, and perfect for what we wanted. There were four adults in our party, and plenty of space for us all. The area was wonderful. A very steep dirt track to get to the property, but don't be put off-it's worth the drive down! Thank you for the perfect place for our mini break.

It was lovely to arrive to complimentary scones, clotted cream, jam and wine, too! The location is easy to find - near enough to civilisation that a pub, Spar, petrol station and an honesty stand of local produce was easily within walking distance, but far enough away to feel we were nestled in the countryside. As we visited in January, we were lucky to have the site (almost) to ourselves, so the swimming pool etc was even more of a luxury. And there were no kids to turf us off the table football! The house has a plentiful supply of heaters and is very cosy. Lakeside overlooks a lawn and small woodland fishing lake. There's a boardwalk through the brook and marshy bits, but definitely take wellies or waterproofed walking boots if you want to explore that area. Some excellent bird-action for ornithologists too, although I'm not sure the fisherman would approve of the heron we spotted on day one! Disappointed we didn't see the horseshoe bats but we were out of season. If you go in the winter months, we suggest a torch as although the site has good lighting, there are inevitably some dark bits. This is a good location, within easy driving distance of Bigbury Bay, Slapton Sands, Hope Bay, Salcombe and Dartmoor. The agent was easily contactable and helpful when we needed a light fixed too. All in all a very nice Wintry stay. Thank you.

Having arrived at the house after a long drive in the pouring rain we were thrilled to be greeted by a lit, warm, clean, and inviting home that was even better than advertised. Prepped to perfection for our arrival, the owners had gone the extra mile and left us an extremely generous (and much appreciated!) welcome package of a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of white roses, and delicious homemade cookies. The cottage is a comfy home away from home that is fully equipped with everything you need for a successful stay including a helpful guide chock-full with info about the house and things to do and see in the area. An added bonus is the fantastic summerhouse at the bottom of the sizeable garden overlooking the water. A heater and comfy furnishings meant that we could enjoy it on the winter days/evenings and even welcomed in a very merry New Year with drinks in there. Ideally positioned near the lovely market town of Kingsbridge and only a short drive away from Dartmouth, we explored the local and surrounding areas with ease even venturing into neighbouring Cornwall on one of our day's there. We were particularly lucky with the weather given the time of year, however wouldn't hesitate in recommending a winter stay as the scenery is just as beautiful and there are so many things to do that it's not hard to enjoy yourselves rain or shine. Of particularly note, in terms of local amenities, is the family run pub The Globe Inn located mere yards down the road who gave us a locals welcome on Christmas Day with a round of free drinks and mince pies. We had such a brilliant holiday that we are already planning our return in the near future.
