Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo

Things to Do

Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are picture-perfect, twin villages located on the River Yealm and are a haven for all things sailboat and yacht related.

Newton and Noss are within South Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boast spectacular woodlands and cliff tops. These two villages ooze peace and tranquillity and are the perfect location for some beautiful scenic walks around the River Yealm’s woodland and along the Newton Creek.

From Newton you can walk towards Noss Mayo, a ‘chocolate box’ village with its cute thatched cottages, views of the estuary and local sailing school. These villages are perfect for all members of the family and a great place to pick up the South West Coast Path, with a seasonal foot-ferry that links the path across the Yealm estuary.

Food and Drink

The Swan Inn in Noss is dog- and family-friendly and a favourite with the locals. It boasts an enviable beer garden overlooking the quay, Newton and Noss, and the River Yealm.

The Dolphin Inn is situated in Newton Ferrers with a beer garden and two terraces that overlook the River Yealm and over to Noss Mayo. The Dolphin Inn offers traditional pub grub and all of the dishes are home-cooked and all of the ingredients are sourced locally. Yummy!

The Ship Inn is located in Noss Mayo on the waterside and has recently been refurbished using reclaimed materials. It offers guests a very simple, comfortable yet contemporary atmosphere whilst enjoying an evening meal. The Ship Inn use local produce and for this reason their menu changes daily. How exciting!
