About Stuart Jones

We are a family of three humans and three dogs (two Norfolk Terriers and a black Lab) who live in the west Country in England and love its amazing countryside, and of course the coast. We fell in love with Noss Mayo several years ago on a visit there although my husband had sailed there several times many years ago.

We love the outdoors especially walking, sailing and anything else in or on the water.

Why Stuart Jones chose Noss Mayo

Noss is a lovely village, very Swallows and Amazons and our cottage's location was a major attraction.

Its location makes it ideal for families. It's in the centre of the village near to the play park and tennis courts and also near the two good pubs the village offers. The coastal path is just a step away and the nearest beach just a mile by car.

I also love the fact that at low tide you can walk across the river bed to Newton Ferriers where all the shops are.

What makes this unique

The cottage was already a holiday cottage when we bought it and we have since made several improvements including adding gas central heating and installing wooden flooring throughout the ground floor.

We also revamped the back terraced garden and have redecorated several times.

A huge advantage to our guest is parking. We have our own parking in front of our garage which means its a mere 30 secs away to carry boats and canoes to the river. The parking is also a major plus especially in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'This was the perfect choice for our New Year break. We were able to put the boat securely in the garage which helped enormously. Noss Mayo is stunning, and the cottage could not be in a better position. We will be back in the summer.' - Vigar family, Dorset.
