River Yealm


Wakehurst is a lovely 3 bedroom detached house set in an elevated position in Noss Mayo giving panoramic views over the estuary and along the valley.

View from Wakehurst

A flight of steps takes you to the front door which leads into a small hallway. The smallest twin bedroom is off this hallway on the right and has lovely estuary views.

Front Twin Bedroom

Further along the corridor are two further bedrooms; one twin overlooking the rear of the property,

Bedroom 2

the other housing a king-sized bed with the added benefit of an en-suite shower room.

Master Bedroom

The family bathroom sits between these bedrooms.


The kitchen and dining area are open plan. The kitchen is well equipped with a single electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher, large fridge-freezer and microwave.


The dining area is lovely, light and airy and overlooks the sitting room. It has a farmhouse table that seats 6.

Sitting Room

Off the kitchen is a useful porch - ideal for dog owners, with the back door opening onto the small sloping lawned area .The rest of the garden is planted up with shrubs and perennials.

Utility Room

Leading from the dining area down a couple of steps is the spacious, triple aspect sitting room. This room has a gas effect stove, books, games and puzzles - plenty to keep you amused should the weather be unkind! There is a TV and DVD player plus a DAB radio with Bluetooth.



Sliding patio doors open on to the large balcony where many an hour can be whiled away soaking up the fabulous views.

View across the Yealm

A perfect spot for some al fresco dining.

Noss Creek

There is also a useful utility room and WC underneath the house. The washing machine, airing rack, ironing board etc. are housed here.

Wakehurst is accessed via a short steep driveway (shared with one other house) which takes you up to a double garage with parking bay to one side.

We suggest you reverse onto the parking bay which is large enough for a sizeable estate car, as is the garage, although this is more suited to a smaller car.

Front of Wakehurst

There is also parking up by the church or down by the playing field, if necessary.

Noss Mayo boasts two pubs, The Ship and The Swan, both serving great food and enjoying wonderful river views.

The Swan Inn

There is a play area and two tennis courts a few minutes walk. There is easy access on to the South West Coastal Path - there are local maps and walking ideas for you found in the sitting room.

Coast Path

The sandy beach of Mothecombe is less than a 10 minute drive away.


Plymouth is only a short drive away with its fascinating maritime history and range of shops and places to eat out, and the southern edge of Dartmoor only a 20 minute drive away, plus popular destinations such as Salcombe and Dartmouth within easy reach. The local maps will guide you to the nearest beaches.
