The Yealm estuary that divides the pretty waterside villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo is exceedingly picturesque and The Penthouse is ideally placed to take advantage of these wonderful views. Situated on the creek side, above an area of the estuary known locally as ‘The Pool’. Most rooms in this modern and comfortable house overlook the water and a sunny balcony running the width of the property is an ideal spot on which to relax, observing the comings and goings of this popular yachting haven or enjoying a pre dinner aperitif on the lower terrace, watching the sun go down. The villages have a real sense of community, with friendly but competitive rivalry between them, especially during the popular summer regatta. Tides permitting, the local water taxi shuttles between the two shores as well as offering boat trips, and being in an area of outstanding natural beauty, visitors would be missing out if they didn’t use the South West Coastal Path that follows the cliffs, giving access to numerous small coves and beaches. There are several excellent inns and restaurants within easy walking distance and the many attractions of this popular area are readily accessible, although given all that this fantastic holiday destination has to offer, we’re certain you’ll not be straying too far.
