Self-catering holidays in the achingly picturesque South Devon estuary village of Noss Mayo are hard to beat if you want to slow down and savour the fresh, sea air. Watch the comings and goings of boats by the quay, hunt for crabs at low tide, or watch the sunset from a quiet clifftop. There are many beautiful walks in and around the village, including The Drive, which provides breathtaking views across the woods, creeks and ocean. At low tide, you can walk to the village of Newton Ferrers, where Mothecombe Beach is an idyllic spot for a picnic. Nearby, Warren Beach is a secluded pebble bay where dolphins and seals are often spotted, and Cellar Beach is a half-hour walk from the village, reached by a steep, rocky path.

The calm waters in front of Noss Mayo in the heart of Devon's South Hams district are a paradise for fishing, sailing and paddle-boarding, and equipment can be hired from Reactive Watersports or Carter Boat Hire.  If you fancy a day trip, take a tour of Plymouth Gin Distillery, book a surfing lesson at Bantham or explore the mysterious landscapes of Dartmoor, directly to Noss Mayo's north.
