Attractive barn conversion property situated just outside the village of Noss Mayo in South Devon, offering guests the perfect base for a relaxing holiday with beaches, water sports, and breath taking coastal walks all within easy reach.

This property enjoys a fantastic location in one of Devon’s most picturesque areas. Noss Mayo, a quaint riverside village, is situated on the south side of the Yealm Estuary, offering a range of traditional village shops, including a butcher, baker, post office, and two delightful pubs, each with waterside views. The village is also home to a well regarded sailing school, as well as offering boat hire and being an ideal location to spend an afternoon crabbing on the estuary side. Just across the river, and accessed via a foot boat, is the pretty village of Newton Ferrers, which makes a lovely place to spend a leisurely afternoon. For those looking for a more lively day out, Plymouth, which is just ten miles away, offers something to suit all tastes, from a splendid range of shops, boat trips, an aquarium and a fabulous art deco seafront lido. For beach lovers, nowhere could be more idyllic than the privately owned Mothecombe, a usually quiet, large expansive beach which visitors may recognise from the film International Velvet.

On the ground floor of this pleasant barn conversion property, guests will find the welcoming lounge, with its beamed ceiling, comfortable sofas, TV, DVD, a payphone and a cosy woodburner-effect electric fire. A door from the lounge gives guests easy access onto the property’s attractive shared gardens. The kitchen/diner is located just off from the lounge, and offers a six seater dining table alongside all the equipment that guests will need to make themselves feel at home, including an oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. For those guests who require laundry facilities, a washing machine and tumble dryer are available in a shared onsite laundry room, for which a small charge applies. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms. Two of these are double bedrooms which enjoy views over the shared gardens. The further two rooms are both single rooms, one of which has a smaller than average 2’6” bed. The bathroom, with its shower over bath and WC is also located on the first floor, whilst there is a convenient separate WC to be found on the ground floor.

Outside, guests have access to the lovely shared gardens, which make a great place to relax and spend time in the tranquil surroundings. There are BBQ facilities available here, as well tennis courts which all guests have access to. A table tennis table is also available in the shared games room, so more competitive guests can still enjoy a game or two, even if there is a brief rain shower. There is parking available onsite.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was clean, cosy and very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. The cottage is in a lovely, seaside/ countryside setting not far from the village. We did lots of walking.

Comfortable cottage, warm and well equipped for the number of guests allowed. Good pus in village - downside was a little far out of village to walk back at night but we knew that before we went. All-in-all, excellent holiday.

A beautiful quiet location to get some well earned R&R but near enough to great beaches and popular seaside resorts for the kids to enjoy

Lovely cottage and we had an easy, comfortable week there. Great views over the gardens and we enjoyed the tennis court and games room. Excellent viewing of the swift nests too!

Reviewed by Mike 13th July 2019

This was an excellent cottage with plenty of room and equipment and many thoughtful touches. The welcome pack of flowers, wine, biscuits was very good and put us in the right mood. The south facing front looks over beautiful views and is great to sit out for. The initial worries about the narrow lanes largely disappear when you realise that there aRead morere usually passing places every 50 yards or so and that most people are willing to give and take. Lovely homely cottage with masses of extras. Hide

We found the cottage had everything we needed for a weeks stay. There were two families in total and we didnt come across anything we would of changed. Gorgeous location, friendly neighbours, great outdoor space and very peaceful. We would holiday here again. Noss Mayo was a gorgeous small town/village with great pubs, great for walkers, play park Read morefor children and a super cute and very hidden pottery shop. Thank you for a great stay. Hide

A lovely cottage in an area close to the costal footpath Could do with some cosmetic updating but very comfortable and the heating was incredibly effective!

Reviewed by Jeanette 4th August 2018

We loved the location of this property despite the narrow roads. There is a lovely rural view from the property. We found the property very clean and comfortable and a pleasant place to stay for the week. The tennis courts were a very high standard and popular with the family, also the table tennis was also a highlight.
