Situated overlooking the water in this gloriously picturesque corner of the River Yealm is 2 the Yealm, a sumptuous two-bedroom apartment set within a stunning development of private luxury properties in the popular yachting destination of Newton Ferrers. Making the most of the beautiful views with floor-to-ceiling heights, private terrace and garden, there is also a lift which serves the building to enable access for all guests. Featuring two bedrooms with two en suite bathrooms, this sumptuous apartment provides the perfect base from which to enjoy all this stunning area has to offer, whether immediately below on the water or further afield where many fabulous areas of interest are all within easy reach.
The uniqueness of this tranquil waterside setting has much to offer. The main public pontoon is located opposite the property and from the pontoon, the delightful local ferryman can be "hailed" during daytime hours to take you to various spots on the pond, and even collect from the pub in Noss Mayo if you are lucky! A private tidal jetty below, exclusively for residents of The Yealm, also gives foot access to the water. (Permits payable locally if launching paddleboards and kayaks etc)
This really is a most comfortable, relaxing and peaceful property whose special location and ambience is sure to provide the destination for a most memorable holiday in the South Hams.
2 The Yealm can be booked together with Harbour Edge which is adjacent and can be accessed easily when booked together, via a lockable door between the patios, enabling families to join on the patios or visit their neighbours easily and enjoy the beautiful views over the water together in what is the perfect location for a sundowner.
A short flight of steps or an access lift lead up from the driveway into the ground floor entrance hall for The Yealm, off which is apartment No 2.

This beautiful apartment has been designed so that all rooms have a view towards the water. Large private terraces wrap around the front of the property in an elevated position overlooking the water, furnished with rattan outdoor furniture. There is a secure storage area which is ideal for storing paddleboards and kayaks, beneath the building.
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 are identified for guests' use further up from the apartment, clearly marked for No 2, approximately 30 metres to the front of the property.
The apartment has its own external electric car charging socket linked to the apartment supply for charging. (As this is straight off the apartment supply, it is an overnight charging facility, not a fast charge.)
Another village in the popular South Hams area of South Devon, Newton Ferrers is a picturesque coastal village sitting on the banks of the Yealm estuary.
