Often described as the most beautiful villages in Devon, the twin communities of Noss Mayo & Newton Ferrers are a sanctuary of peace and quiet.
The two villages are situated on opposite sides of Newton Creek which forms part of the Yealm Estuary. Noss Mayo lies on the south side with Newton Ferrers to the north. Although situated close to the historic maritime city of Plymouth you are completely oblivious to the presence of this much larger neighbour.
The estuary, which forms part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is simply stunning, surrounded by rolling oak-wooded hillsides. The South West Coast Path is easily accessed for a variety of walks around the stunning coastline and further in land.
With easy access to the sea Noss Mayo & Newton Ferrers provide safe, sheltered anchorages for yachts from many countries. In the summer the tidal waters are full of sailing boats of all sizes.
The summer months are when the villages really come alive as visitors flock to the award-winning pub, the Ship or simply soak up the idyllic views, and relaxed village atmosphere.
All the attractions of the South Hams & Plymouth are easily accessible and the mild year-round climate ensures a holiday cottage break will be a real treat all year round.
