1 The Point is located in a beautiful waterside location in a quiet corner of Noss Mayo, a desirable village near the coast in South Devon. Perched on an elevated spot on the bank of the estuary, the property has remarkable views over the Yealm estuary and across to the neighbouring village of Newton Ferrers on the opposite bank of the river.

The cottage backs onto National Trust woodland – which makes the ideal starting point for very scenic walks. You can stroll through the ancient woods along to the nearby Cellar Beach, a small pebbly cove surrounded by craggy rocks, then out to the cliffside path that skirts the shoreline, with elevated views of the Mewstone island and out along the Cornish coastline.

And from your doorstep, the villages of Noss and Newton have plenty to offer. Wander around the sleepy winding lanes or stop off at one of the three pubs dotted around the villages (including the very nearby Ship Inn) for a local ale or glass of wine – or perhaps a delicious meal, coffee or ice-cream.

A short drive beyond the villages, discover idyllic sandy beaches, moorland, and unique towns and cities, inluding nearby Plymouth, with its rich mix of history, culture, food and shopping.
