About this property

An outstanding conversion of the former River Yealm Hotel comprising of fourteen luxury apartments and one stunning contemporary house overlooking the beautiful natural harbour of Newton Ferrers.

We are delighted to announce that Red Earth Developments are nearing completion on the eagerly awaited conversion of the former River Yealm Hotel in Newton Ferrers.

Overlooking the beautiful natural harbour and retaining the existing Victorian facade of the original hotel building, which is so familiar to local residents and visitors, this sensitive restoration and new build project is probably one of the most exciting developments in the South Hams.

The site has its own woodland, which after years of neglect has been restored including replanting with sweet chestnut and English oak.

The show apartment will be available to view during late Spring 2020 with overall completion likely from the end of May 2020 however viewings can currently be done on site by arrangement with Marchand Petit 01752 873311. Further information can be found on The Yealm website: www.theyealm.co.uk


The former River Yealm Hotel was opened in 1898 and originally a branch railway line was planned to bring guests right to the front door - but the line was never built. Instead a steamer transported people to the hotel jetty and ever since, those who sail into the Yealm Estuary will be familiar with this local landmark.

The building is being sensitively converted into six two-bedroom apartments. They are very grand, making the most of the high floor-to-ceiling heights and the wonderful views. The ground-floor apartments have their own terraces and private gardens, the first-floor apartments have their own terraces and the top, second-floor apartments have their own balconies. Lifts serve the entire building and separate storage areas are provided at the lower-ground floor.

Each home in The Main House will have the following:

- Wonderful riverside views
- Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom
- Second bedroom and bathroom
- Generous open plan living areas
- Fully fitted high specification kitchen
- Lift access
- Two private parking spaces
- Access to the shared private woodland
- Access to the shared private quay
- Enhanced above building regulations sound insulation
- Feature radiators and / or underfloor heating
- Mains gas hot water and heating boiler
- Fire and burglar alarms
