This converted former coach house was once the home for horses which served in WW1. Set in the pretty village of Newton Ferrers on the Yealm estuary ideal for sailors and walkers.

Packed with character and history, this charming former coach house makes a wonderful bolthole on the south west coast, ideal for unwinding amid the sea air. The contemporary style property sleeps four, with plenty of space to bring the dog along for a proper family escape. Soon you will be enjoying the many walks from the front door, getting sandy paws on the beaches and soaking up the sea views from the clifftops.

Feel immediately at home from the moment you step through the door, with the welcoming decor, cosy furnishings and thoughtful details inviting you in. Snuggle with your loved ones on the sofa in the lounge for a family night in, your canine companion snoozing at your feet after an exhausting day of stick chasing and tail wagging. Open the French doors in the large, contemporary kitchen/diner and let the outside in as you enjoy a delicious dinner or hearty home-cooked breakfast to fuel you for a day of adventure. Wake up in one of the spacious first-floor bedrooms and take your morning coffee on the pretty, Mediterranean-style enclosed patio area. There is allocated parking directly outside the property for one car, with additional roadside parking subject to availability.

Surrounded by ancient woodland and creeks, the sleepy village of Newton Ferrers enjoys a relaxed way of life. Keen walkers will go mutts for the clifftop trails at The Warren, while sea lovers and sailors will find an excellent slipway and boat moorings on the Yealm Estuary. At low tide, walk across the estuary to Noss Mayo (1 mile) and dine at one of the village’s local pubs – or hop on a ferry if the tide is high – or take a mooch around the dog-friendly park at Saltram House and Gardens (8 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is the third time we have stayed at Olive Court - handy for visiting relatives in the area. It is spotlessly clean, well equipped and a pleasure to come back to. No doubt we will be returning later in 2020.

The cottage was as promised and was a fab location for a Christmas stay. It's close to the one shop in the village, a great pub, the river and church. We prefer Newton to Noss Mayo because it has some facilities and parking is easier (less steep!). Interior beautifully done.

Comfortable cottage in a lovely village set in beautiful surroundings. There is plenty of walking immediately available but the village is set on the side of a hillside sloping down to the river so walking around the village does require walking up or down quite steep hills. Therefore may not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues. We ate on aRead more number of occasions at The Ship Inn in Noss Mayo, excellent food and service, and lovely to walk across estuary from Newton to Noss when tide out. Hide

Newton Ferrers is a very pretty village on a stunning estuary. The cottage has been done to a good standard and had everything we needed for our stay. The only problem was the flushing of the downstairs toilet which was very hard to do. We would recommend going to Salcombe, Dartmouth and for very good rockpooling go to Wembury beach.

Beautiful well equipped comfortable cottage in a lovely village close to the amazing coast and Dartmoor We just spent 4 glorious days there and will always remember it My young family even commented on what a good choice I made with the cottage

Reviewed by Carolyn 6th July 2019

The cottage is a good base to explore the local area. The cottage itself was comfortable and well equipped. There are local facilities a short walk away and we had an enjoyable break. As the area is steep would not recommend for elderly or those with limited mobility.

The cottage itself was great and had all that we needed however a mention of the location would have been helpfull as we were not prepared for the steep hills arou d the village. This was an issue as we had a person with walking issues with us.

This is an ideal location to explore Newton Ferres and Noss Mayo. There are some very nice pubs/restaurants and tea rooms near by and walks along the Creeks and cliff tops. Mothercombe Bay is not far (on narrow roads!) and is just right for bucket-and-spade and swimming.
