Stonecrop is an outstanding property providing the most spectacular holiday retreat. The lavishly built property occupies a prime position above the Yealm Estuary in the village of Newton Ferrers, South Hams, Devon, a popular sailing village . The house is ideally located within walking distance to the Picturesque village with bustling local pubs and yacht club, also with well stocked Butchers, Post Office, Chemist and small Supermarket The Village pontoon is a couple of minutes walk where you can go crabbing, swimming and boating. You can walk to the village pontoon to catch the ferry to Cellars beach, an unspoilt cove on the estuary. There are wonderful coastal path walks. Stonecrop is a very spacious house, 4 bedroom, three contemporary bathrooms and large kitchen all comfortably furnished to a very high standard. There is a wonderful South facing sun deck providing breathtaking views up and down the estuary. The large gardens are arranged on levels with steps leading down to the road bellow, to the pontoon and the village via a riverside walk. There is on site parking for up to three cars. The setting is exceptional!
We have spent the past 25 years in Newton Ferrers having purchased our home for holidays and weekend breaks with the family. We now live here permanently and purchased Stonecrop 18 years ago and built it as a holiday home for our large family. Our children and grand children have spent many years holidaying here the They enjoy crabbing, swimming, walking, sailing, kayaking boating/ wake boarding. We have many a family BBQ on Cellars beach. There is plenty happening in the village to keep all ages active.
The house is absolutely stunning and very well thought out! The beauiful views, high quality finishes and general feel exceeded our expectations.
So spacious and really socially spaces in the kitchen/dining room. Access to the river at the bottom of the garden was great for he dog and the children who enjoyed crabbing in the river.
Lovely walk along the river path to the village, all the locals were really friendly and The Dolphin and The Ship are great pubs!
We had a wonderful stay and cant recommend this house highly enough.
Thank you Emma!
Fabulous views, weather, location and home. If you want something special and a home from home away, you will not be disappointed.
Stayed at Stonecrop for a week at end of July... group of 3 couples. All very impressed with quality of accommodation, location and views - the quality of which warrant the cost involved. The house has a homely feel, is very impressive and avoids feeling like a rental. Professional and efficient cleaning staff. Great area - fantastic walks and local pubs, would recommend it strongly.
