We (four adults) really enjoyed our week's stay.
The house and village were a real joy. While not an uber smart Instagram house Waterside Cottage is a real holiday home - very comfortable, with everything you need, and in a fantastic location. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, the shower strong, the cottage has parking- and the locals super- friendly.
This is a place where you could stay put and enjoy yourself or use it as a base to explore.
We spent hours sitting /eating/drinking on the river side patio enjoying the ever-changing views and people watching. It was extremely handy for a pub(with restaurant)- the Ship is a 3 min walk , well sign posted coastal walks, Plymouth ( we used the bus from the village to get there), Saltram NT.
The pub right next door to the cottage, the Swan, was closed during our stay for a refit, but the Visiter' Book suggestions about it are positive.
The village has two excellent tennis courts and a boule pit. Across the river in Newton Ferrers, which you can walk to at low tide across the river, is another pub, post office/community shop, butcher and a Co-op.
We also used Jon in the village(07967 133705) to do a boat trip along the coast and up the estuary.
Communications with owner David before and after our stay were excellent, and our deposit was returned promptly.
Our 5th or 6th stay here, and never disappoints! The owners strive to make sure guests are made to feel totally at home, upgrading equipment etc. This time, a big green egg bbq! Granted we didn't use it, but how many rental villas would have one of these? Book in advance, and you'll never regret staying at Merrivale!
