Lovely property, very clean and tidy on arrival, great location if you don't mind an adventure down narrow roads! Nice little green area to sit out, if the weather had been kinder to us to make use of.
Our only grumble is we couldn't use the upstairs shower over the little bath, some instructions in the folder would have been helpful. Fortunately it was easy for us to share the lovely big shower in the basement bedroom.
This converted malt house is beautifully situated on the estuary, so the views from the first floor living room are spectacular. A real bonus is being able to park right outside. Noss Mayo has 2 great pubs and is incredibly picturesque.. we used the cottage as a base to walk some of the coastal path and coming back to this lovely setting in the evening for a glass of wine while watching the boats and estuary live was brilliant.
Spacious, warm and comfortable with great views of the creek
A really good stay.
Lovely location - good facilities
Creek View is located in a beautiful, very peaceful place, right next to a scenic Creek and estuary. The accommodation was clean and has everything you need, with clear and detailed instructions.
Only downsides (minor):
- shame there doesn't seem to be shops within easy walking distance
We enjoyed a lovely week at Creek View. The location of the property is idyllic with easy walking distance to the co-op and post office. The view from Creek View is stunning. Having easy access directly from the property to the slipway was great as we spent a lot of time kayaking on the river. I understand that the property itself is undergoing updating, which is great as it currently feels quite tired and dated in places. All in all we had a lovely holiday and would definitely return to Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers.
Unfortunately Creek View will never compare to the next door property where our guests had previously stayed, where no expense was spared on complete renovation of the property by the former owners. Investment has been made this year on renovating the downstairs bedroom and shower / toilet facilities; also the internal and exterior of the property was repainted in May. Improvements will be made on the upstairs bathroom next year. As the reviewer states the location is 'idyllic'. If you want a property where water location/views are key, Creek will always score 5 out of 5 .
The location of the cottage was brilliant with a fantastic view of the estuary
The cottage was well equipped, and we particularly enjoyed the dvds and games.
Everything was in working order apart from the upstairs toilet which is leaking from the cistern and does not flush properly.
Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers face each other across a creek in the beautiful wooded estuary of the River Yealm, a haven for lovers of the English countryside with its appealing waterside cottages and local pubs. A variety of sailing dinghies and smaller boats create a colourful scene for all who visit. Newton Ferrers is popular with visiting yachtsmen during the summer and together with Noss Mayo boasts several delightful waterside restaurants to complete the atmosphere. A ferry connects Newton Ferrers with a secluded cove and the well known South West coastal path.
