Noss Mayo is perched on the south side of the Yealm Estuary, just six miles south-east of Plymouth. It’s the ultimate waterside retreat if you’re looking to enjoy a gentle, slower pace of life, where you become part of a community with one shared common goal, to enjoy life on the river. Expect to find traditional thatched cottages stacked along the water’s edge, backed by a chocolate box collection of fishermen's cottages, family homes and luxury apartments, all of which enjoy watching the estuary ebb and flow.
Why Noss Mayo?
Boasting a rich sailing heritage, Noss Mayo offers activities for all ages, both on and off the water. The River Yealm is the beating heart of the community and provides the ultimate playground for both adults and children alike. Come rain or shine, high tide or low, it’s a hive of activity and plays host to a wealth of activities. From kayaking and paddleboarding to crabbing and fishing, not forgetting sailing, swimming (and quayside jumping!), the options are endless.
For those that would rather keep their feet on dry land, navigate the footpaths and you will quickly find yourself on the South West Coast Path. The village itself boasts community tennis courts, a large recreational area, wildlife in abundance and is just a short walk from a sheltered sandy cove. What’s more, Noss supports two lively pubs, The Ship Inn and The Swan, both of which are situated on the water’s edge. Across the water and accessible by boat, or on foot at low tide, is the neighbouring village of Newton Ferrers with the popular Dolphin Inn. The village of Noss Mayo is regarded as one of South Devon’s best-kept secrets, and once you’ve spent time here, it’s easy to see why!
Noss Mayo is ideally situated for further exploring the region of South Devon itself. Nearby, you will find the sandy beaches of Mothecombe, Challaborough and Bigbury-on-Sea where you can enjoy surfing, rock-pooling and endless sandcastle building. A little further afield are the harbour towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth, both of which are popular destinations.
