Newton Ferrers is a secluded spot perched on the banks of the Yealm Estuary, with the smaller village of Noss Mayo on the opposite side of the river. This sleepy corner of south Devon is a charming mix of traditional thatch-roof Devon cottages, pretty scenery, ancient woodland and peaceful rural life.

This area has a warm community feel, with a treasured local pub, The Dolphin, welcoming locals and visitors alike with its local ales and acclaimed bistro dining. There’s also a small selection of local shops for convenience supplies. Newton Ferrers offers a laid-back, not overly touristic, holiday feel and an authentic taste of coastal Devon life. And its location makes it the ideal choice for water-based activities – or just to take in the sea air and sensational scenery.
