Blue Skies is a most delightful, tastefully refurbished South Devon holiday home from home which will enchant the visitor with its lovely views of the estuary and surrounding cottages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. Decorated and furnished in a comfortable, contemporary style with an open fire, it makes for a great holiday destination at any time of year and it also has a sunny rear patio and terraced garden, with the added benefit of parking for two cars. The cottages of Noss Mayo and its twin village of Newton Ferrers crowd the edges of this pretty estuary and either village can be accessed at low tide via a linking causeway. The area, though popular as a holiday destination retains a peaceful atmosphere, disturbed only by the bustle of colourful activity on the water, as this is a haven for yachts and those who love messing about in boats. Both villages have excellent inns, serving locally caught seafood and other delicious local fare and there are some literally stunning walks along the nearby South West Coastal Path. If you can drag yourself away from this pretty spot, some of Devon’s famous sandy beaches are within easy striking distance as is the beautiful Dartmoor National Park and the dramatic Celtic county of Cornwall is less than 10 miles away.

We were very impressed with Toad Hall, always very helpful on the telephone. Property was lovely, didnt want to leave!! Have booked with Toad hall already for next year!! Thank You.
Although a 6 bed property there were only 2 of us as we like lots of space Wine and Devon cream tea awaited us on arrival. Flowers on the lounge table as well. We will return again as this was our second time at Blue Skies and third at Noss Mayo. Overall an excellent property with the addition of a garage to park our car in and lounging chairs on the sun deck at the rear.
We were concerned about noise since the property is behind the pub but it was quiet partly the clientele but mainly because the outside table are in front of the pub and the parking is about 50m down the road[a cul de sac] so no car doors slamming etc. the property is built as they all are up the side a steep river valley which means there are a lot of stairs so we left fitter than we arrived even allowing for walking the coastal path as well Otherwise the property is as described and has a nice welcome pack [wine, clotted cream,scones and strawberry jam] and well equipped throughout The main reason i have bothered with the review was to reassure anyone concerned as i was about pub noise.
