Tenure: Freehold

Between Yealmpton and the coast a superb and well appointed house standing in level gardens and with paddock, extending in all to about three acres, with panoramic views. Marland provides a rare opportunity to acquire a high calibre property with outstanding level gardens and useful paddock within the Yealmpton-Newton Ferrers-Holbeton triangle. This is a comprehensively appointed and versatile family house with an outlook over its own excellent gardens. The plateau setting surrounded by farmland also enables the property to enjoy truly panoramic views over the rolling South Hams countryside and to the heights of Dartmoor beyond.

Yealmpton is set in the beautiful South Hams countryside, just above the head of the Yealm estuary, with Dartmoor National Park to the north east and the coastline to the south with its beautiful estuaries, cliffs and beaches. The city of Plymouth is a short distance to the west and Newton Ferrers, at the mouth of the River Yealm and noted for its sailing, is even closer at hand. Yealmpton was described as a borough in ancient records and tradition says the Saxon King Ethelwold had a palace here. The annual Yealmpton Show, which has been running since 1874, is held at nearby Kitley House, the family home of the Polloxfens and Bastards since the time of Elizabeth I and where the nursery rhyme Old Mother Hubbard was written. The village itself has a number of amenities including several shops, primary school, health centre, two pubs, restaurant, garage and Church.

Newton Ferrers is a much sought after estuary village on the northern slope of the beautiful estuary of the River Yealm, opposite Noss Mayo on the southern side. It has a range of local amenities including a Church, Post Office, pub and restaurant, Yacht Club and a primary school. For more comprehensive shopping centres Plymouth is to the north and Kingsbridge to the east. From here there are fine cliff top, woodland and coastal walks and the Yealm Estuary is very popular with yachtsmen. There are 18-hole golf courses at Wrangaton to the north which backs onto the Dartmoor National Park and at Bigbury to the east.
