Situation The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the River Yealm estuary. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen and lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butcher, Co-Operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro and good Primary school. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferryport is also easily accessible. All give superb access to the rest of the country, combined with living in one of the most beautiful riverside locations on the south coast.
Plymouth itself is an historic & vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar & public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal & cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros & restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in & around Plymouth Sound
