Newton Ferrers forms a twin community together with Noss Mayo on the opposite side of the Yealm Estuary. This area offers picturesque riverside walks and ample opportunities for water-based activities such as sailing and paddleboarding. It’s also a short distance from the coast, which offers wonderful walks along the South West Coast Path, sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular views.

There is a thriving local community, with essential services including shops, a Post Office and pharmacy within easy reach.
