Hidden in the emerald depths of the South Hams, our Boutique haven perches on the riverside in the desirable village of Newton Ferrers. Perfect for dreamy escapes with loved ones, it welcomes up to four people for spellbinding moments shared between family and friends - and your dog is welcome too! With luxurious interiors accented with gorgeous period features, a private jetty on the water, and stunning countryside and coast all on your doorstep, it exudes a special kind of appeal that entices for year-round retreats. Mingle amongst the thriving local community and active sailing scene or savour moments wrapped up in your own private retreat for a holiday that'll create lifelong memories, discovering all that makes this sought-after pocket of South Devon so special.


A waterside hideaway in the heart of one of South Devon's most coveted locations, Avery is completely enchanting. Inside, you'll find a warm welcome in its living area which exudes a peaceful atmosphere with pared-back Scandi vibes and soothing tones. Decorated in soft, neutral hues that tastefully complement its wooden floors and detailing, it has an immediately inviting air which tempts for relaxed hours at home - made all the more lovely by its uninterrupted river views. Cosy up on the plush sofa and hunker down with a book or switch on the Smart TV to find your favourite film and let time slide by care-free. Leading off from the living area is the kitchen, allowing conversation to flow freely as plates are prepared and corks are popped.

Eating and dining

Adjoining the downstairs living area is a pretty kitchen containing everything you need to rustle up your favourite dishes. Enjoying a light, understated colour scheme with creamy undertones and gold inflections, it's a delightful space perfect for the chefs in your party. Along with its wide array of appliances and equipment, a Smeg coffee machine awaits for those slow morning lattes, while the breakfast bar with four stools is perfect for gathering and dining throughout the day.


The master bedroom is a sumptuous room decorated with deep, slatey blue walls and an off-white ceiling for a dreamy, decadent ambience. For nights of easy, restful slumber, its king-size bed is swathed in super-soft linens, while the alcove window affords gorgeous views of the river from dawn till dusk - encouraging you to linger in bed just that little bit longer. This room is completed with wooden side tables, drawers and a built-in vanity unit. The second bedroom, a lovely twin room, has bunk beds with a separate trundle, perfect for little ones. Designed with soft tones and splashed with colour, this bright and cheerful space promises a cosy nest and also boasts its own ensuite bathroom.


Upstairs you will find the beautiful en-suite bathroom of bedroom two, designed with dressed wood panels and striking wallpaper for a playful, exotic edge. Idyllic for bubble-topped soaks, a freestanding bath with shower head awaits here, wonderful for relaxing after days of exploration. Heading downstairs, you will also find an additional bathroom. Light and airy, it contrasts white tiling with a black statement towel rail and shower door for a modern twist on the traditional. So that you can immediately wrap up in the warmest, fluffiest towels, both bathrooms have a heated towel rail.

Outdoor space

With its incredible riverside setting, Avery draws you outside to make the most of its stunning views and location. With private terraces and a jetty located just across the lane from Avery's front door, you can waste no time in taking up a pew by the water in this yachty idyll and settling into the chilled-out rhythm here. Dip your toes in the water or relax around the outdoor table and chairs and enjoy a soundtrack of lapping water and a backdrop of unadulterated beauty. Whether you're ready to cook up a feast on the firepit, watch boats meander up and down the river or simply savour a glass of something special over a South Hams sundowner, heavenly moments reside here. You will also find a pizza oven for mouth-watering Italian delights.


Avery has some limited, roadside parking and public parking available close by.

Babies and children

In the Area

Set within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Avery is perfectly placed for exploring. Just 20 minutes from Plymouth, half an hour from Salcombe and half an hour from Totnes, you can easily branch out to uncover some of the county's most famous gems or stay close to home to revel in all there is on your doorstep. For the sailors and water-lovers, a trip to the local Yacht Club next door is a must for local fare and nautical news, as is a passage on the seasonal foot-ferry between Newton Ferrers and its neighbouring havens of Noss Mayo and Wembury. At low tide, stretch your legs across the voss linking Newton Ferrers with Noss Mayo. Merely a short stroll from Avery, you'll find a number of pubs overlooking the water and an opportunity for a spot of crabbing.

The sheltered waters and picturesque creeks of the River Yealm offer unrivalled riverside exploration, as do the nearby miles of coast path just a stone's throw from the cottage. Particularly beautiful views can be seen from Stoke Point and Garant Point, while for leisurely beach days, you can head to nearby Wembury Beach or Bovisand Beach. Once you've fuelled your appetite, the award-winning Dolphin Inn pub in Newton Ferrers beckons with olde-worlde charm, river views and delicious home-cooked dishes. In neighbouring Noss Mayo, you can also find the Ship Inn and the Swan, two popular pubs for local food and drink.

Set on the banks of the River Yealm in Devon, our waterside cottage promises a private jetty, gorgeous river views, and luxurious interiors...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Avery:

Just a superb cottage, location, comfort & views to die for and beautiful village. Lovely & clean on arrival

We really enjoyed our stay at Avery Cottage. Newton Ferrers was a real find. Even in peak season we didn’t find any tourists, only the locals who made us feel very welcome. All three pubs were charming and offered great food, drinks and service.

Avery Cottage is well placed and lovely throughout. The location on the edge of the river with the decking was brilliant for paddleboarding (which we hired locally) and there were also beautiful walks. We were fortunate to be able to watch the rowing heats for the upcoming regatta in the evenings which were brilliant and very entertaining. Lovely sense of community and good pubs too! Would definitely recommend and hope to return.

Nice estuary view.
