This traditionally built stone house was constructed in the 1850's for our grandfather who was a boat builder, harbour master and skipper. There is private off road parking for two cars and a waterside patio which is ideal for watching life on Noss Creek and keeping an eye on children crabbing on Pope's Quay just below. There is a private quay if you wish to bring or hire a dingy. A cot, highchair and stair gate are all available if required. The local pub, the Swan Inn is just next door and the famous Ship Inn just a few minutes walk down the road. At low tide the 'voss' allows a five minute walk to the Dolphin Inn, post office and shops of Newton Ferrers. There is full gas central heating and all gas and electricity are included in the rental cost. I'm afraid we don't allow pets. Free broadband Wi-Fi is available throughout the house and most laptops and phones will connect out on the patio!
Brothers Ian & David own the home between them. Ian has three grown up children who all love Noss and David has two younger children who love it too!
We both remember many happy holidays in Noss as children crabbing, fishing and messing about in boats. Now our own children are enjoying these same things.
David Lewis purchased this house in 1949
Our Grandfather bought the house in the 1920s and our mother was brought up there.
Dave loves the peace and quiet of an early morning coffee on the patio with only the sounds of the birds and a rowing boat coming in on the tide.
Ian's favourite time is coming home to a warm and cosy house after a freezing winter walk around the coast where the waves were crashing on the rocks.
But we both like being able to pop next door to the Swan for a beer, ordering a meal to be delivered to our private patio and watching the sun go down.
The children love being allowed to go to the park and the tennis courts independently, and playing games in the woods.
Unlike most properties in the village we have off road parking for two cars.
Wake up every morning to the ever changing scene of the tidal estuary and the wooded hillside opposite.
'We've had a fantastic holiday, the house is great, views brilliant.'
'Perfect location for relaxation and for coastal walks.'
'Have enjoyed this pretty cottage and village, the walks, the tides, even the mist. Thank you.'
The nearest beach (Old Cellars) is a pleasant half hour walk, or 5 minute drive and 10 minute walk.
The house is just over 10 miles from Plymouth and if you like walking or cycling then a car is not a necessity. There is a regular bus service every couple of hours to Plymouth via Yealmton.
There are no longer any shops in Noss but over the river in Newton Ferrers there is a post office and general store, a chemists and a small but very well stocked Co-op. When the tide is low you can walk to Newton in a few minutes. It's about 20 minutes walk when the tide is in. There is a children's playground in Noss just behind the two tennis courts. All three local pubs (and the yacht club), are great for food and drink, and there are plenty of other eating places within a few miles.
The nearest leisure centre is Ivybridge which has a nice swimming pool. For luxury food shopping can I suggest the Riverford organic farm shop in Yealmpton - they also have a great cafe!
The house has free broadband Wi-Fi and a land line telephone with free evening and weekend calls. We ask people to leave money to cover daytime or calls abroad.
