About this property

A recently extended and restored characterful cottage set on a waterside promontory in the Yealm Estuary enjoying widespread views up and downstream and across to Newton Ferrers. Garage.


With an abundance of characterful features 4 Noss Mayo is thought to be in the region of 150 years old. A comprehensive programme of renovation and improvement was completed in 2020. Exposed beams and high vaulted ceilings, fitted kitchen with French doors leading out to the water facing balcony, and luxury bathrooms are included in the specification. Facilities also include a combination of electric underfloor heating and gas central heating.
Light fittings not included.


The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo straddle the Yealm Estuary. 4 Noss Mayo is set high above the water, with the accommodation ideally arranged to take maximum advantage of the views up and down stream and across to Newton Ferrers.

The tidal Noss Hard providing easy kayak access is 150 yards from the cottage and steps down to the water's edge are even closer to the property.

Long walks are available from the doorstep, along the estuary and around the National Trust headland of The Warren.

Both The Ship and The Swan inns are a short walk away, and there is a thriving village hall and well cared for tennis courts in the village. Newton Ferrers has a range of facilities including a Coop supermarket, pharmacist, independent butcher, post office and a primary school, while more comprehensive amenities are to be found in nearby Yealmpton, Modbury, Ivybridge and Plymouth. Deep water moorings and slipway facilities are located around the Yealm Estuary.

From the A379 Plymouth to Kingsbridge Road at Yealmpton, take the B3186 signposted Newton Ferrers. Shortly after passing Marchand Petit's office on the right take the left fork signposted Noss Mayo and Bridgend. Continue down the hill, around the sharp bend at the head of the creek and follow the lane up in to Noss Mayo. Turn right at the Church. Continue down the hill until you arrive at the creek/village hall public parking area. Ideally, park here and walk straight ahead up Passage Road past back of the Ship Inn on the right. Follow the road around the bend and the property will be found on the left.
