At this beautiful holiday cottage, situated in Noss Mayo, South Devon on the hillside overlooking a creek, the visitor can enjoy wonderful views of the estuary from the verandah, looking towards the pretty twin village of Newton Ferrers. These two villages, scattered around the foreshore on either side of the beautiful Yealm estuary are the epitome of a Devon seaside destination, with colourful cottages, cosy traditional inns, a bustle of yachting and boating activity and just a stone's throw away from some of the most spectacular coastline in the south west. The Old Chapel has a contemporary open plan living area with vaulted ceilings, feature windows and oak flooring that combine to create a wonderfully relaxing area for guests to unwind. Downstairs, the three large bedrooms each have their own shower or bathroom facilities and a wide verandah, accessible through the display windows in the lounge is a perfect place to sit or dine al fresco in the summer evenings whilst watching the lazy activity on the water. Some of Devon's loveliest sandy beaches are a short distance away, the Dartmoor National Park can be reached in under half an hour and you are just a short drive from the border of the dramatic Celtic county of Cornwall.

The Devon region

Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South Devon and it's otherworldly pace of life.

Noss Mayo

Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers lie opposite each other on a creek of the beautiful wooded estuary of the Yealm. The Yealm estuary is a haven for artists and yachtsmen with pretty waterside cottages and sailing vessels of every shape and size making an idyllic scene for all who visit. Newton Ferrers gives shelter for the yachtsmen using it during the summer and boasts 3 pubs within a stone's throw to make the ambience complete. Walking enthusiasts can enjoy beautiful coastlines particularly Warren Point, a spectacular area, where wildlife abounds. The little church of St Werburgh, standing on the cliff at the junction of several of the parish footpaths, has stood on this wild piece of coastline since the 14th century. Another landmark to look out for is the Great Mewstone, a rock like a right angled triangle where people have lived in the past.
