About the property

Surrounded by National Trust woodland - Your own mooring for boat and a quay. Large terrace with spectacular views. Nearby Beach and Pubs

This cottage is in a special location, surrounded by National Trust woodland and only accessible by water or footpath. It is just a short row or ferry ride from the harbour pontoon (where free parking is available) or a glorious walk along the coastal path from the Wembury side. From the cottage you can walk to Wembury beach and cafe or row to the three local pubs in the village!

Built in 1835 it is a listed building retaining much of its original character including a range made by Carron works more noted for their cannons The whitewashed cottage enjoys panoramic views over the clear waters of the River Yealm. From the front terrace enjoy views that stretch from Dartmoor in the north, across the river to the village of Newton Ferrers and then round to Noss Mayo and the entrance to the sea.

Yachts and dinghies at their moorings and the ever changing water provide a view that will provide a relaxing break on the sunny terrace. To the front of the cottage is your own private mooring and quayside and behind the cottage is a garden with steps to National Trust land and footpaths. Bring your own boat or canoe!

A short walk and you are on the spectacular coastal path looking across to The Great Mew Stone, and then on to Wembury beach with its rock pools and water activities.

A short row or ferry trip from the cottage across to Newton Ferrers and enjoy a pub lunch at The Dolphin Inn or the Ship Inn. At low tide walk across the two vosses that appear and visit Noss Mayo (two pubs). Shop locally at Newton Ferrers and return to dine at the cottage using the Aga or go by car to Riverford farm shop (Yealmpton) for organic produce and a delightful meal at the Riverford cafe.

By car waterside Plymouth offers many attractions e.g. National Marine Aquarium, Blackfriars gin distillery or visit Dartmoor National Park.

About Charles Stewart

Charles and Jenny first visited the River Yealm by yacht in 2002 with their three girls, after circumnavigating France through the canals and the French coast. Since then they have gradually moved their current yacht "Shangri la" in family holidays from Turkey and she is now based just up from Coastguards on the Yealm.

When they first saw One Old Coastguards, they fell in love with the location and the property and the comfort of a "land based" yacht - the only disadvantage of not moving does not seem to matter - with the ever changing views and river activity!

Charles Stewart purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Charles Stewart chose South Devon

Old Coastguard cottage waterside location, surrounded by National Trust land and the scenic costal walks provide an unbeatable combination. We loved the character of this 1835 listed cottage and the rich history of the Coastguard cottages, built largely to prevent smuggling and rescue shipwrecked sailors.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of this cottage is unique and the views are dynamic. Being near the water allows one to be in tune with the weather and tides at all times. In addition the area is a walker's paradise. The surrounding area is outstanding with villages to explore and the cities of Plymouth and Exeter nearby.

Indoors, the old range is a reminder of the history of the cottage when the coastguard protected us from smugglers and wreckers. However we do like the convenience of an Aga and induction hob for modern cooking! In addition the advantages of broadband and other modern facilities are also on offer.
