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.

Merrivale is even better than the pictures suggest

5 of 5
As soon as you walk through the door the peace and tranquility of Merrivale descend on you. It is utterly wonderful. It is spotless. Everything you need is provided. Including a welcome cream tea! The beds are comfortable. It feels like a home not a holiday rental. It feels loved.... Everything about Merrivale speaks of comfort and quality. And the views......... Absolutely stunning!! It literally stopped us in out tracks as we walked in! We could have spent the entire week in the property and not moved beyond the terraces. Leaving each morning was a struggle but there was always the promise of returning each evening. Watching the shipping and the wildlife is addictive and the telescope is a very thoughtful addition. Loved the bird watching book to log all the birds seen. Thank you to Richard and Sarah for sharing this wonderful place. And to Sue for the immaculate presentation when we arrived. This is the only place I have stayed where, by Sunday breakfast, we had all decided that we would be coming back. So next year's trip to Merrivale is already booked, with one small change.... We are booked for a fortnight!
