Rose Cottage is positioned in the heart of Newton Ferrers, a village in the South Hams area, near the south Devon coast. Newton Ferrers blends into the neighbouring Noss Mayo, these two villages straddling the beautiful Yealm Estuary.

Newton and Noss are blessed with Devon charm – right on your doorstep, you’ll encounter meandering lanes and pretty views the sloping wooded banks of the estuary. The river itself is a treasured spot for anyone who enjoys water-based pursuits.

You’ll find plenty to keep you entertained during your stay. The villages are served by a range of shops and amenities, and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to pubs – with no fewer than three friendly local establishments at which to enjoy a meal or to unwind with a drink.

There’s plenty to explore in and beyond Newton and Noss, including some of Devon’s most picturesque walks, with the coast just a pleasant walk away. Here, you can discover secluded coves and stunning views out over the English Channel. You’re also within easy reach for a day out to gorgeous sandy beaches, the wild expanses of Dartmoor, the cultural and historic attractions of Plymouth and, just over the Tamar Bridge, the unique allure of Cornwall.
