Noss Mayo – South Devon

The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo nestle either side of the picturesque Yealm estuary on the south coast of Devon, ten miles east of Plymouth, the largest city in the south-west. A short drive away you can find the glorious unspoilt Erme estuary and beach at Mothecome surrounded by rolling wooded hills and farm land down to the sea. At Wembury (some 6 miles away) there is a good family beach with rock pools and a small museum and café.

Most of the local shops are located at Newton Ferrers including a post office, butcher and chemist and a co-op with extended opening hours. Pubs with excellent local food include The Ship in Noss Mayo, The Dolphin in Newton Ferrers and the Mildmay Colours at the nearby village of Holbeton. Highly recommended for reasonable lunches and first class organic foods the well-known Riverford farm shop at Kitley close to the road to Newton Ferrers.

Activities include boating, sailing, fishing and swimming in the River Yealm, coastal walks with magnificent sea views, bird watching and tennis at Noss Mayo. For a rainy day there is the National Marine Aquarium, cinemas, theatre and bowling at Plymouth, while for historic house lovers there is nearby Saltram house, the film location for Sense and Sensibility. A little further afield is Overbecks house and gardens at Salcolmbe. August sees several local regattas including one at Newton and Noss. Using your cottage as a base we can recommend a visit to the National Trust property at Cotehele, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden project just over the border into Cornwall. For children Woodlands Leisure Park, Pennywell Farm and the Dart Valley steam railway are all popular spots.

The house has been beautifully converted and very tastefully decorated and was absolutely perfect for our family of 8. The house is spacious and light and was warm with efficient central heating and a wood burning stove in the Living Room. The house was impeccably clean upon arrival and we all appreciated the very tasteful Christmas decorations. We met the owner who was so friendly and welcoming and she had provided excellent instructions on how to reach the house and had given us tips on shopping and things to do in the area. The location is peaceful with outstanding views from most windows and it is easy to step out of the gate onto the coastal path meaning we could walk and run from the house around the headland. It is a truly magical place that we all loved and we will most definitely return to as soon as possible.

The house is a good size with 3 double bedrooms on the first floor along with a bathroom and separate toilet. The 2nd floor has an unusual door which is more like a fixed loft hatch via a slightly steep staircase. There is a double bedroom which you walk through to get to a twin bedroom. The stairs would be fine for older children but as ours are 2, 6 and 8 years old and sometimes get up in the night for the toilet, we decided to put them on the 1st floor. On the ground floor there is a porch with a toilet, a large sitting room with an open fire place, a smaller sitting room with a tv and DVD and a very smart kitchen dining room. The back door opens onto a large garden with a raised patio and plenty of lawn. Our SatNav took us via a very narrow 'Devon' lane. There is probably a much better route. Pros - Good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds Lots of storage space (however needs to be emptied of personal items) Hot shower Kitchen well stocked with crockery and cutlery and utensils Plenty of parking Local Co-op and post office 10 minute walk away Easy access to supermarket and city centre Good mobile phone and 4g signal Clean Cons - Kitchen bin too small Not enough seats for everyone to eat at dining table together Driveway access tricky due to large gate posts Needs more bedroom and bathroom bins No internet access Nowhere to hang coats Stiff door handles No information pack. By this we mean a couple of pages detailing how to use the heating, what rubbish goes in which bin, local area info (hospital, GP, dentist, vet, supermarket etc), any other useful information. However the owner was available to help if needed. The cons list is very picky and most of the things on it are very easy to rectify. We thought that it might be difficult for 10 of us to be altogether with only one bathroom. Actually we had no problems but an ensuite in the master bedroom might make it more attractive to future guests. We had a fantastic week in Plymouth. We visited Morwellham Quay near Tavistock which was a 45 minute drive away. The local pub, The Ship, in Elburton was very welcoming and produced excellent homemade food. The Ship Inn in Noss Mayo also served excellent food. The parking was tricky and the village roads are very narrow but it is worth a visit. We also spent a couple of days shopping in Plymouth. We would recommend staying here.

The views really are amazing, with stunning sunrises and sunsets. Perfect location for a stroll to the local pubs or a more adventurous trek (the coastal path is at the end of the driveway). A drive away, but the Oyster Shack in Bigbury is a fantastic seafood restaurant. The house is spacious and equipped to the highest standard and the games room is a great way to occupy the children (and parents!) on rainy days.
