DESCRIPTION A charming, stone built cottage tucked away just off Newton Hill in the very heart of this thriving community. The level access and proximity to the shops make this a very easy home to live in. This cottage will suit permanent occupation but is also ideal as a holiday retreat. It has been redecorated and newly carpeted throughout, new double glazed uPVC windows throughout. Historical Note: "Melita" is the name of the tune for the hymn "Eternal Father, Strong to Save", also known as the Navy Hymn due to its association with the island of Malta during World War II.  

SITUATION The twin villages of Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo enjoy a delightful riverside setting on the wooded slopes of the estuary of the River Yealm. This sheltered, deep water harbour is much favoured by yachtsmen & lies within a truly beautiful valley in the unspoilt South Hams countryside, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Special Area of Conservation.

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, tea-rooms & good Primary School. The holiday retreats and full time residences have found a comfortable balance that propel this thriving community with countless clubs and activities available for the more sociable and active, or long picturesque walks for those that simply want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. 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.
