Newton Ferrers House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 bathroom house - In An Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty with stunning views down the estuary

The Post House has been completely refurbished to offer spacious accommodation in the heart of Noss Mayo, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The large open plan living/dining room provides a comfortable place to enjoy the breathtaking views of the estuary. Enjoy dinner on the large terrace as the sun sets over the river or wander below to Popes Quay with a beer from the nearby Swan Inn to watch the many river activities (including the Regatta and fireworks in August). Walk to The Ship for fine food or at low tide cross the causeway (and get diverted by a spot of crabbing on the way) to the pretty village of Newton Ferrers, The Dolphin and the shops. At high tide use our kayaks to secure fresh breakfast croissants from the local Post Office store. The coastal path is nearby and can be walked with suitable pushchairs. Some lovely beaches (offering rock pooling to surfing) are within 15-40 mins, whilst Plymouth, the National Marine Aquarium and the historic Barbican are 20 mins drive.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Peter Norman

We set up South Hams Holiday Homes in 2007 to offer homes with a difference. We are on the look out for properties that can offer a spectacular holiday either through its location or its amenities. The Post House is our first venture and after extensive renovation came on to the market in May 2010. Whilst unassuming on the exterior it met our criteria by offering outstanding views, and providing a great base for an all round family holiday. And it wasn't a plunge in the dark. We stayed there for 3 years with our family of four (that's them making the splash in the water with the dog looking on), saw the potential and decided to buy it. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Peter Norman purchased this house in 2007

Why Peter Norman chose South Hams

We both come from Tavistock in Devon but Peter only discovered the South Hams when I took him there for a surprise on his 40th Birthday. It was instant love and we have holidayed in the area ever since. Nine of those 10 years have been in Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers. What attracts us to the area is that it has escaped the ravages of most tourist spots in Devon/Cornwall including the prestigious Salcombe/Kingsbridge areas. This is in no small part due to its proximity to Plymouth that means the community has a very active working base alongside its retirees and holiday homes, that gives the neighbourhood a home from home feel. This really comes out during the regatta weeks where the competition between the two communities on opposite sides of the creek is very intense.

What makes this house unique

The Post House is in a pivotal position within Noss Mayo village overlooking Pope's Quay - the hub of the village's summer activities. Built in the 1920s it is prominent amongst the 18th/19th century fisherman cottages and provides one of the more spacious holiday homes in Noss Mayo with ample living space that takes full advantage of uninterrupted views down the estuary. Moreover given its location, it is unusual in Noss Mayo in enjoying sun all day long and the terrace provides the perfect space to enjoy this maybe with a meal served to you by the Swan Inn. With the estuary on your doorstep your kids have ample chance to engage with nature away from their screens with hours of pleasure to be had mucking around, on or in the water.

" A homely getaway from it place"

  • 5 of 5

Friends of five that have been holidaying together for 18 years. The house was spotlessly clean, organised with labelled cupboards and well equipped. The views from the windows are outstanding across the creek. The last few miles of the journey are narrow roads with passing places and parking is "tight" in the village. On saying that there is a bus service to Plymouth and the driver is worthy of an applaud when you see how he can negotiate tight turns and other traffic.

Across the creek , 5 minutes walk, is "The Ship Inn". We found the food, atmosphere and service to be excellent. It is a little bit more pricey than the other pubs but the quality is there and after all you are on holiday! Recommend you pop in and book a table though as very popular. It was great to stay somewhere so close to pubs and not need the car.

Communication with Peter was easy and quick responses. Very professional.

Another great holiday to remember.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this and great to hear that you had such a good time. The local pub The Swan has new landlords who are bedding in and the chef was previously with The Ship so we are hoping that they will be offering good fare at reasonable prices very soon. Good to hear you used the public transport as well - useful for those who do not want to be reliant on cars. There is plenty to see in the area so we hope you will come back again to explore more of the region. Peter

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

We are a family group staying in the area for a wedding. The house was perfect for our needs, large open plan living area upstairs which was great as we had small children with us. The house is very well equipped and there is a terrace with outdoor furniture. Kayaks also included, we didn't actually use them but for summer holidays these would be perfect. The accommodation is split over three floors so maybe not the place if you have any issues with stairs but otherwise very nice. Noss Mayo itself is beautiful and the views of the creek from the house outstanding. There is a pub just next door to the property but it had just changed hands so the food choices were limited, we used the Ship Inn just 10 minutes walk away and the food there is excellent. Would love to return

Owner's Response: Thank you for this and we are delighted that you had such a good time. We are looking forward to The Swan getting up to speed and offering a full menu in the not too distant future. The village is such an amazing place for hosting special events and The Post House has had its fair share of guests for weddings, concerts and other moments. Hope you'll return before too long!

Wonderful place and house - perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Post House in Noss Mayo in June 2016 and had a wonderful week. The house is located immediately next to the quay where you can go crabbing, launch the kayaks (provided my The Post House) and moor a boat if you can bring your own. (Boat launch near The Ship Inn) The kayaks and boat are very useful for heading across the creek to get supplies from the shops in Newton Ferrers. There is also a pub next door to the house called The Swann with very friendly owners serving good pub grub and nice Ales...enjoying this in the sunshine on the quay is perfect way to spend the afternoon. The Ship Inn over the Voss is fabulous too. The house itself if amazingly comfortable and functional with everything you need, a proper home away from home. We had 7 adults and 2 children there and the house swallowed us up giving us all more than enough space. The terrace is a wonderful place to watch the sun go down and contemplate your next days activities and if the English weather is not kind to you the cosy living room also offers wonderful views across the creek, as do 2 of the bedrooms as well. Noss Mayo is a special place and very relaxing however the whole area offers plenty of activity including really great walks around the headlands and through the woods. We will be going back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this, it is a pleasure to hear people enjoy the place as much as we do. Our children have migrated from crabbing on the quay to jumping off the quay to swimming up the estuary to the quay - it is a wonderful place for family holidays. We hope we'll see you back again soon.

Excellently located and very comfortable house.

  • 4 of 5

This is a spacious and comfortable house in a wonderful location. The lounge/dining room is enormous and has great views across the river to Newton Ferrers and downstream to the Yealm estuary.

It is well furnished and equipped. We have stayed in many holiday homes during the winter and often poor quality heating systems let them down. This is not the case here as the central heating is modern and highly effective and together with the log burner in the lounge it stays cosy and warm on even the coldest evenings.

There are lots of great walks from the house and there are three good pubs within easy walking distance. The food and service at the Ship was excellent.

The house has been well looked after and was very clean although in the bathrooms there were some signs of ageing but nothing to detract from the overall good quality.

The owner was very helpful and communication via the website and by email was prompt and efficient.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and although it was not the most luxurious cottage we have rented it was very reasonably priced given its size and location.

Owner's Response: Chris Thank you for your review and apologies for not responding sooner. We look carefully at what our guests have to say and how we can improve things, and I am pleased to say that we have updated the main bathroom so that it now has a bath/shower mixer and overall the look has been upgraded. We hope you will come again and we can earn that extra star off you! All the best Peter

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented, very comfortable accommodation with everything you could possibly need, including some lovely 'welcome' treats on arrival! We were a family of six and the large open plan living area into the kitchen was perfect for being together but not on top of one another. The Post House gives stunning views across the creek and further along the estuary and we've never known such peace and quiet. The Revelstoke Drive walk is a must with fabulous views of the rugged coastline. Lovely food and great service in The Ship. We were very lucky to have two beautifully warm, sunny days for the time of year but we'd have still loved it in the rain!! The Post House is a credit to the owners and has already been recommended to work colleagues. We hope to be able to visit again soon. Thank you Peter.

The Post House, Noss Mayo, Devon.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Post House for a week and didn't want to leave.

Situated overlooking the delightful Yealm Estuary in South Devon it's a perfect base for exploring and playing.

We are a family of four adults and a three year old and the property suited us all. First impressions did not disappoint, the area is beautiful and the house had lovely views of the river and the villages of Noss and Newton Ferrers.

Parking was tight but perfectly fine and if the spaces outside the house were taken, The Ship car park is a few minutes walk.

Inside the house is very attractive, comfortable and warm (no stinting on heating here!) Everything is immaculately clean.

A modern, well equipped kitchen with good quality crockery and cutlery, a new washing machine and tumble dryer made household chores easy. The large, well furnished sitting room has very comfortable sofas, a modern TV, a dining table with seating for at least eight and plenty of carpet space for our small grandson to play with his toys, he was very happy.

All the bedrooms are spacious, made up with attractive bed linen and matching large, fluffy towels. Two en-suite shower rooms and a family bathroom meant there was never a need to wait.

The fun part is the crabbing nets and the two kayaks. There for the pleasure of the guests, we made use of them both, in fact our son was out with his little boy at 7.30am one morning catching the ever patient crabs that seemed only too happy to jump onto the bait bag and be whipped out of the water... again.

We went to Mothercombe and Wembury beaches, Babbacombe Model Village, Torquay, The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, took a boat trip on The River Dart in Dartmouth and there were other things we would have liked to do if we'd only had time.

The local pubs are great, we used all three. The Swan, actually joined onto the Post House, is friendly and serves good pub grub. The Ship, on the other side of Noss Creek is more modern and the food a bit more expensive. The Dolphin in Newton is a real 'locals' pub and the staff are jovial and very welcoming.

It's a super place for a holiday, even in October, and as long as night clubs and bars are not on your agenda, we would highly recommend The Post House.

Our correspondence with the owner, Peter, was always efficient and personal, requirements and enquiries were well met. Our breakages deposit was refunded to our bank account within three days of our return.

Well done all who are involved.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The house provides light airy accommodation over three floors with the main access being from the terrace to the top floor but with access also available on the ground floor. With oak furniture throughout the house genuinely takes groups of 10 comfortably whilst the wood burner also makes the accommodation suitable as a romantic week-end getaway off season. Cot, high chair and stair gate can be provided on request. For those prepared to take on the hills, bikes can be stored on the rear terrace. One & two person sit on kayaks are available for use by guests although we do not provide life jackets or wet suits.
