In Newton Ferrers, a large, detached, south-facing house, excellently positioned just above the river Yealm with superb panoramic river views, 500 yards from village shops and pub. At the front, paved terraces and a big river-facing deck (tables/chairs, barbecue) are part-sheltered by a wisteria-clad verandah, and with ceiling-high glazed doors across the whole front of the house opening to the deck this is an ideal spot for enjoying those views, from inside or out, and observing passing river life. Boats can be hired locally; steep steps (care needed) below the garden lead to a private quay, the tidal creek (outhaul mooring) and riverside footpath to the village and Nat. Trust woodland. With split-level foundations, this is a spacious house and the river views are shared by almost every room (even the laundry has a peek!). Inside, everything generous and well done, with relaxing colours, good fabrics, furnishings and artwork, and made extremely comfortable as the owners' own holiday retreat. Steps (19) from road down through enclosed, steepish garden to front door (further steps down to deck/terraces below). Entrance hall; 2 steps up to double bedroom (5'8” bed, hooks for clothes-hanging) with en suite shower-room (suite) and French windows to small covered balcony; stairs up to family bedroom (twin plus single under sloping ceilings) with fun seaside theme, en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower) and French windows to balustrade.  From entrance hall, stairs down to two more large bedrooms – the stunning master double (5'3” French bed, sofa, chairs) with marble-tiled en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower and hand-shower) and balcony, and a double (6' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite) and corner window seat. More stairs down to living room with big sofas/armchairs for 7 around 'living flame' gas fire, desk, raised snug/TV area for 4 with TV/Sky/DVD/video and film/music library, and dining room – big glazed doors in both rooms fold back for access to the deck/terrace. Up 2 steps, smart cream kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, large fridge-freezer, 5-ring gas cooker/double oven) with granite-topped central island, oak worktops and breakfast bar (2 stools). Laundry/utility room (washing machine, tumble drier); large wine fridge; downstairs loo and back door to garden. All main rooms and bedrooms have individually controlled heating/air conditioning.Damages Deposit £300. A thoroughly comfortable and well thought-out home in an enviable riverside position.

The Devon region

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

Newton Ferrers

Newton Ferrers/Noss Mayo: adjoining small villages beside the River Yealm estuary, sheltered by oak-wooded hillsides, popular for sailing, lovely for walking or just sitting. Essential shops (Newton Ferrers) and good food pubs. Low tide footpath across the creek. Tennis courts; riding stables. Pedestrian ferry to coast walk to Wembury (village), and secluded beach. Mothecombe (nearest sandy beach by car), 4 miles. Plymouth, 11.
