Newton Ferrers lies on the banks of the beautiful Yealm estuary, a river surrounded by steep wooded banks and creeks. The village occupies the hill opposite it’s twin village of Noss Mayo, accessible by foot at low tide. The South West Coast path runs through the village.
The village hill leads down by the Post Office shop to the Dolphin Inn on the left with elevated views over the estuary.
Newton Ferrers is an attractive place to visit year round and is particularly popular with tourists and yachtsmen during the summer months. The village is only 10 miles from Plymouth and therefore enjoys a healthy catchment area easy for day trippers and evening visits.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area including visiting the stunning South Hams coast and inland countryside. Mothecombe, Bigbury and Thurlstone beaches are all nearby, dotted around the National Trust coastline, in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
The Dolphin Inn is signposted (brown tourist signs) from the A379 Plymouth to Modbury road.
