Property Description: DESCRIPTION
A very pretty former 'fishermans' cottage sitting in one of the most popular streets in this waterside community. Ideal as a holiday retreat or for anyone wanting a low maintenance lifestyle by the river, the cottage is within a short walk of the public slipway and dinghy beach and also the centre of the village with its shopping facilities, popular Dolphin Inn and thriving Yacht Club. SITUATION
The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the estuary of the River Yealm. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen and lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, traditional butcher, Co-operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro and good Primary School. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away. Intercity trains run daily from Plymouth to Paddington. The Continental Ferry-port are also easily accessible. All give superb access to the rest of the country, combined with living in one of the most beautiful riverside locations on the south coast.
Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound. ACCOMMODATION
