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.

This is our fifth year in this apartment, we keep coming back to this lovely place. The location has beautiful views of Bigbury Bay and easy access to the beach with lovely local walks nearby. Gill is a welcoming, caring host; nothing is too much trouble. Thank you again Gill for your many, many kindnesses and help. We look forward to coming back next year!

It is surprising to find a rental property without Wi-Fi in this day and age. Convenient for the city and all travelling. Please ignore others comments about the railway at the back and sirens from the dockyard, as it would be hardly noticeable to anyone unless they were on a night shift!

We arrived just before 4pm expecting to be able to get in, but on reading the instructions again it says 6pm. I have to say I think this is too late. Also probably my fault for missing some info somewhere, but I always assumed from the photo that we would be in the annex, and was surprised to find that it was a first floor apartment in the main building. Apart from those two things, everything else was great. The apartment is well equipped, very spacious, and has fabulous views. The local pub is friendly and welcoming, with good food, and possibly the best chips anywhere. As a dog owner one of the best things was to find out how dog friendly the whole of the South Hams area is. The dog enjoyed lots of beautiful beaches, and endless fuss from people in pubs. The field adjacent to the property is perfect for an early morning walk, and the bench overlooking Bigbury perfect for a glass of wine in the evening. Al in all a very enjoyable holiday.
