Noss Mayo is a serene but bustling village on the edge of the River Yealm, facing its neighbouring village of Newton Ferrers just on the other side of the estuary (and a short walk away). Newton and Noss are a magnet for those who love sailing, kayaking or paddleboarding. The area is also a wonderful setting for walks, through nearby woodland and riverside routes, and out around the South West Coast Path, with spectacular views of the sea and the dramatic coastline.

This area is also a great starting point for days out to beautiful local beaches, Dartmoor National Park, and the historic maritime city of Plymouth, with its vast choice of shops, theatres, cinemas, museums and restaurants to explore.
