Newton and Noss

The pretty villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers are tucked away in a delightful corner of Devon, separated by the Yealm estuary. A ferry runs between the tiny settlement of Mayo and the slightly larger, more bustling Ferrers, allowing the visitor to experience the best of both worlds.

Noss may be diminutive, but it has a fascinating history that belies its size. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and once the haunt of smugglers, the colourful character of the village has survived to the present day. A veritable paradise for bird watchers, the village is ideally situated to observe many species native to the UK, as well as the flurries of migratory birds that swoop over the estuary. The village also attracts anglers keen to test the estuary stocks.

Across the water at Newton, you will find a village set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the hub of a whole host of beautiful walking routes that make the most of the stunning views. Newton is picture postcard pretty, and home to several welcoming pubs that serve hearty Devonshire fair, and, of course, plenty of local ales. Just down the road at Mothecomble lies a delightful private beach, which is open to the public at weekends and on Wednesdays. Perfect for a leisurely family day spent rock pooling, picnicking, sunbathing and swimming, this sheltered bay is a universal favourite with children of all ages.

    Pamflete House is an attractive, detached Georgian farmhouse near the mouth of the Erme Estuary, which was enlarged to accommodate John Crocker Bulteel’s large family and staff when he left Flete in 1870. It now provides a luxurious, well-equipped private house, which is available fully or partially staffed for family holidays and celebrations, as well as larger events such as weddings. The entrance sweep of Pamflete House is ideally suited for a marquee reception for up to 120 guests, with a glorious view up the valley. The house is a 2-minute drive from Pamflete Beach, which is the most idyllic setting for wedding photographs with a difference. Wedding packages can be enquired about at the estate office on site. This spacious country residence is a Grade II listed house situated in a heritage location, perfect for all types of celebrations, from christenings, birthdays, anniversaries and reunions, to country house parties and relaxed family holidays.
    The Flete Estate is a privately owned estate of over 5000 acres of farmland, woodlands, pastures, amenity and agricultural land leading to the Erme Estuary coastline and wide sandy beaches. Set in the beautiful coastal South Hams area of Devon, this unspoilt stretch of coastline, with its beaches, streams and rock pools, is one of the few to remain in private ownership. Guests can make use of a small, private path that drops down from the old carriage drive through the woods to Pamflete Beach, one of the Estate’s more secluded beaches. This sheltered stretch of sand makes the perfect summer barbecue spot, as well as being a favourite site for crabbing.
    Mothecombe’s sandy beach is at the mouth of the Erme Estuary. It is owned and maintained by the Flete Estate and has remained completely unspoilt, with the only buildings being an old boathouse and the lime kiln. With its soft golden sand, a little stream, rock pools and small secluded coves revealed at low tide, the beach slopes gently into the sea. The coastal paths leading from Mothecombe Beach have far reaching views over beaches and cliffs, including a tidal bathing pool, smugglers cave and secluded beaches.
    The surrounding location is both idyllic and famous. The first film shot on location on the Flete Estate was ‘International Velvet’ in 1978, starring Tatum O’Neal, Christopher Plummer, Anthony Hopkins and Nanette Newman, and featured Mothecombe Beach and the nearby village of Holbeton. The Flete Estate will probably be remembered most in Ang Lee’s ‘Sense and Sensibility’, filmed in 1995 with an all-star cast, including Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman. The television adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s ‘Rebecca’ was filmed in 1997. The Estate has been the backdrop of many other films and television series, including ‘Hornblower’ in 1997, episodes of ‘Poirot’ and ‘Jonathan Creek’ to name but a few. Beach ¼ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
