Below the property next to the water is a private jetty giving foot access to the river, exclusively for use by residents of The Yealm. Small craft (kayaks, paddleboards) are welcome to use the private jetty. It should be noted that the private jetty is tidal and therefore the water access is limited at times.
The public pontoon which is just below the Harbour Master Office nearby is significantly less tidal and it is possible to arrange other craft here, with the Harbour Master.
Please note - harbour fees are payable for all and any craft launched from any location on the river whether it is launched once, or every day.
2 designated spaces. The apartment has its own external electric vehicle charging socket linked to the apartment supply for charging, included. As this is straight off the apartment supply, it is an overnight charging facility, not a fast charge.
