Waterbased Activities in Newton Ferrers Newton Ferrers has a longstanding nautical history, rumored as the birthplace of the notorious 17th Century pirate, Henry Every or ‘Long Ben’ as he was known to his crewmen. Thankfully no pirates roam the river now, although Newton Ferrers continues to be a hive of boating activity. Hire a boat and sail down river discovering some of Devon’s hidden treasures. For those who don’t have sailing under their belts, hop aboard the small ferry and cruise to nearby Wembury for a day trip. Once the tide goes out, walk from one side of the river to the other and while an afternoon away with a tipple at the local pub whilst watching the tide ebb and flow and the boats bob along the river.

Beach Holidays in Devon The South Hams has some of the best beaches in the South West and a holiday in Newton Ferrers promises the perfect base to uncover them all whilst on holiday. Famed for their beauty and diversity, nearby beaches such as Wembury, Mothecombe, Bantham, Thurlestone and Challaborough will ensure hours of seaside fun with endless rockpooling, sandcastle building and surfing opportunities. For beaches closer to home, kayak along the creek and stumble upon the sandy shores of the river, only unearthed once the tide retreats. A holiday in Newton Ferrers combines the very best of river and seaside scenery, the perfect mix to ensure a blissful breakaway from every life.
