Self Catering Reviews for Elphinstone

Elphinstone, Newton Ferrers, Devon,

Description of the self catering property

 � in Newton Ferrers, a large, detached, south-facing house, excellently positioned just above the river Yealm with superb panoramic river views, 500 yards from village shops and pub. At the front, paved terraces and a big river-facing deck (tables/chairs, barbecue) are part-sheltered by a wisteria-clad verandah, and with ceiling-high glazed doors across the whole front of the house opening to the deck this is an ideal spot for enjoying those views, from inside or out, and observing passing river life. Boats can be hired locally; steep steps (care needed) below the garden lead to a private quay, the tidal creek (outhaul mooring) and riverside footpath to the village and Nat. Trust woodland. With split-level foundations, this is a spacious house and the river views are shared by almost every room (even the laundry has a peek!). Inside, everything generous and well done, with relaxing colours, good fabrics, furnishings and artwork, and made extremely comfortable as the owners� own holiday retreat. Steps (19) from road down through enclosed, steepish garden to front door (further steps down to deck/terraces below).
