HISTORY The Haven was built by members of the Mount Edgcumbe family. Dating from 1910 it is one of the oldest properties on Yealm Road. The original house was a colonial style bungalow, occupying a double width plot.

Shortly before the start of world war two the rental of The Haven was taken on by an army officer and his young family. After the war, he returned as a highly decorated General and bought the house. It became a happy home with many local friends enjoying frequent parties in the garden and on the veranda.The property has remained in the family ever since and has continued to be a cheerful and welcoming home with a constant round of visitors dropping by for drinks or al fresco lunches seated on the veranda and overlooking the creek.

After extensive works, the original bungalow is now a pair of semi-detached houses; one is lived in by a grand-daughter of the General (which means that the property has in effect been in the same family for nearly eighty years) - and the other is now for sale. 

SITUATION The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the River Yealm estuary. 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 Ferryport is 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 & vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar & public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal & cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros & restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in & around Plymouth Sound.
