Beauport | Luxury River Cottage | Newton Ferrers, South Hams

Nestled on the banks of the River Yealm in South Devon's yachty haven of Newton Ferrers is the oh-so-stylish Beauport. This stunning waterfront self-catering luxury cottage exudes a restful ambience echoic of the gentle morning mist which settles over the river at the bottom of the garden. The South Hams region of Devon is where golden beaches and long country walks reign supreme.

The Yealm estuary is a haven for artists and sailing aficionados alike who highly covet the riverside village of Newton Ferrers for its idyllic location and olde worlde charm. Surrounded by ancient woodland, the creek upon which Beauport sits ebbs away at low tide revealing a walkway across to neighbouring Noss Mayo with its locally-renowned gastro pub. Skipping down over the shared track to the garden to sit and lazily trail your toes in the water is a pleasure you will want to keep all to yourself...         

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Beauport is a luxury self-catering abode with three beautifully designed first floor bedrooms; each bedecked with fine linens and a stylish grown-up nautical motif. The king-size master bedroom boasts river views and an en-suite shower room, whilst the twin and zip-and-link share a family bathroom with bath tub and overhead shower. 


Long hot summer days enjoyed in the south-facing waterfront garden will create cherished memories of a time well spent. A beautifully established terraced garden leads up from the rear of Beauport offering well-placed seating areas along the way; follow the stone steps right to the top for a breathtaking vista of the River Yealm and Noss Mayo on the other side. The rustic summerhouse provides a serene space to escape the hubbub of the main house; it will delight artists who wish to capture the ethereal light made famous in this corner of the Westcountry, or perhaps for enjoying a genteel afternoon tea with local jam and big dollops of clotted cream.

For Relaxation

Sit and watch the sailing boats gently bobbing up and down from Beauport's enviable riverside position with the occasional cheerful wave to passing yachtfolk. South Devon is a Mecca for those with a penchant for watersports- a passenger ferry takes you from Newton Ferrers to the coastal parish of Wembury on the outskirts of Plymouth where, after a pretty coastal walk, kayaking (straight from the house) and surfing opportunities can be found in abundance. Find a quiet spot to lose yourself in a good book alongside one of the two woodburners in all seasons. 


The private parking bay sits at the top of the steeply-tiered garden to the rear of the house. Please note the steep drive to the allocated space is unsuitable for low sports cars. There is extra roadside parking on the approach. Guests can unload suitcases at the shared road to the front of the house before driving up to park the car. The house is equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge freezer, electric Aga and induction hob. Please note that a boat is not provided but there are two kayaks to be used at your own risk.

Our Take

Property Owner Paul says

A stay at Beauport is all about the river and the ever-changing views from the cottage and garden. It is about relaxing in the summerhouse or riverside garden with a glass of wine and a good book or being lulled to sleep with the gently hypnotic lapping of the river outside the window...

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Newton Ferrers, Devon to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Buckets and Spades You are spoiled for choice in the South Hams which is famous for its beautiful, diverse, award-winning beaches. Large, sheltered and ideal for bathing, unspoilt Mothecombe is a private beach but is open to the public on Wednesdays and at weekends. Rocky Stoke beach is approximately 4 miles away and great for rockpooling - be aware of the wooden stepped descent (and steep climb back up!). 

Towns and Villages Nearby Totnes, Kingsbridge and Yealmpton have good agricultural shows and weekly markets in summertime and make for a great day out. Dartington has a great annual music festival and is an interesting melange of boutique shops and quaint tea rooms. 

For Little Ones The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is just half an hour away, while Woodlands Leisure Park with its watercoasters and toboggan run, is just 20 minutes away. Nearby Sparkwell has the Dartmoor Zoological park (made famous by the film with Matt Damon 'We Bought a Zoo'), which is a great family day out for kids (and big kids!) of all ages.

Take to the Water Take a ferry from Newton Ferrers to Wembury for rock pooling adventures, or take to the waves with a surf lesson at nearby Bantham. Discovery Surf School is a local family-run surf school who teach all levels of surfing, stand up paddle boarding and coasteering depending on requirements.



The South Hams is a glorious patchwork of rolling fields and charming villages dotted with local farms selling eggs, honey, jam and more. Use the best of local fodder to whip up a storm in the modern kitchen, or why not catch your own fish to sizzle on the BBQ? Riverford Organic Food in nearby Buckfastleigh provides locally-sourced organic meat, fruit and vegetables, as well as having an on-site cafe with delicious cakes- a must visit!

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

There are three pubs within a ten minute walk of the property, including the locally renowned foodie favourite Ship Inn at Noss Mayo (booking highly recommended in summer!). Salcombe is just half an hour away where you will find plenty of eateries and fine dining opportunities among the sailing fraternity who favour this sailing Mecca.
