Our home

We have lovingly built a large detached family house a stone's throw from the River Yealm in a beautiful part of South Devon. On the first floor the bedrooms all have French windows to take advantage of the river/village/country views. There are two large en-suite double bedrooms with balconies which get either the morning or evening sun. The house is decorated simply with wooden floorboards and modern furniture (mainly ikea). It is comfortable and spacious with 2 double bedrooms and 2 singles, a large family dining/sitting room and a separate family room which has two sets of French doors and almost seems part of the garden. The kitchen was fitted in 2005 in Shaker style with plain wood units, range cooker, a large American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing-maching, tumble drier and lots of cupboards. We have 2 acres of land, mostly hillside, with terraced gardens in front of the house and a small paddock. It is very much a country house, ideal for families or couples. We have kayaks, a small sailing dinghy and bicycles to share.

Who we are

  1. We are Tracy and Ben (both in late forties) and our three children, Tom (20 and at Cambridge University), Ollie (17) and Ellie (9). We are also, 3 bantam hens, 2 pet rats and 4 cats (2 Maine Coon, 1 Rag Doll and a ginger kitten). We both work: Tracy is a Chartered Surveyor who works for a Government Department and Ben teaches and does some broadcast work. Tracy grows fruit and vegetables and loves to walk. Ben runs the coast path to keep fit and builds. We all like reading, cycling, cinema and a little bit of boating. We have spent the past 5 years building our home and enjoying exploring the countryside around and now feel we are ready to get away from time to time.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is situated overlooking the River Yealm between the villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. These are picturesque sailing villages in the beautiful South Hams area of South Devon. You can walk to the coast in about 15 minutes directly from the house along a footpath which leads to a country lane and then the National Trust owned South Coast path which in our area is truly stunning. There are very many beautiful sandy beaches nearby. We are just 15 minutes drive from the Dartmoor National Park. We are 20 minutes by car away from Plymouth with its great waterfront attractions. It is a great spot for chilling out or for having fun outdoors with the family. Friendly neighbours will make you feel welcome.
