Less than 100 yards from the water at Bridgend Quay in the estuary village of Noss Mayo, Oystercatchers is the perfect bolthole for a luxurious, relaxing couple’s getaway. Nestled on a hillside in one and a half acres of gardens and grounds, this beautifully presented annexe offers fabulous contemporary accommodation. A large open plan living room welcomes you with space to relax after a busy day exploring the area. The first floor bedroom and en suite have been finished to the same high standard, boasting a sheltered glass balcony to enjoy a glass of fizz in the evening sun. With just a short walk to the Coastal Path, or to Bridgend Quay where you can launch a small boat, this is the perfect location to discover South Devon and beyond. Noss Mayo enjoys easy access to plenty of sandy beaches, several market towns and the vast beauty of Dartmoor. The village is also home to two delightful waterside pubs serving local beers and locally sourced food. Whatever time of the year you are visiting, Oystercatcher provides a perfect base for a superb holiday. * Please note: The property will not be accepting pets in 2018 *

Thank you for your comments which we have passed to the owner. We are pleased that you enjoyed exploring Noss Mayo with its riverside and coastal walks available in the immediate vicinity. Of course areas further afield would require the use of a car but the village has so much to offer, lovely walks, fabulous pubs and eateries, and we are pleased that you had an enjoyable holiday.

This is a spotlessly clean, beautiful, contemporary property with modern fixtures and fittings, in a scenic and peaceful location. Despite only one bedroom it is very spacious with plenty of places for stowing away bags/cases. The owners next door were extremely welcoming (fresh eggs from their hens and a cream tea awaited our arrival!) and very helpful but never intrusive so despite several glass doors downstairs (making for bright & airy accommodation) there was still complete privacy and it is one of the best holiday properties we have rented. There was a slight lack of small items of kitchen equipment compared to some other properties, but unless you plan to cook a lot it's more than adequate. It is worth being aware that the immediate area for at least a couple of miles around seems to be a complete blackspot for Vodaphone. We had a wonderfully relaxing break and this is a property we definitely intend to return to at some stage.
Very much enjoyed our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at the oystercatchers in noss mayo. Beautiful location and very friendly owners.
Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful location. the property is extremely spacious with lots of lovely design touches.
We had a good holiday despite the inclement weather. The owners were very welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive. A lovely touch with home made bread, apple juice and a welcoming cream tea. Thank you.
Thank you for your feedback and comments which we've passed to the owner. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. From the Toad Hall Team

Superb accommodation with top quality fittings. Great welcome with fresh bread, ,milk and Devon cream tea. Beautiful setting and loved watching the variety of birds .Clive and Mo helpful but unobtrusive .Unfortunately the weather let us down somewhat
We believe that it is worth warning people before the property is booked about the entrance. We drive a car (an Audi A5) which has a relatively low front skirt and we found that even driving up the road to both enter and exit the driveway we found that the skirt scraped the driveway (with resulting damage to the paintwork), we also saw the owners own mini have the same issue! Other than this matter the property was very good and well presented with the nice surprise of the food package from the owners. We will certainly be looking at your website for future short breaks. The food at the Swan Inn was very good.
Thank you for your feedback, the driveway is now detailed on the website and guests are provided with travel directions to guide them to the best direction of access for entering the driveway. We are delighted that otherwise you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you to another Toad Hall property in the future.

I think that Oystercatcher is quite a new property and it may be that some feedback is required on some of the equipment provided. Just minor things but it would be normal to provide kitchen scissors and a Pizza cutter as part of the normal kitchen equipment. The curtains are quite poor quality and tended to let a lot of light in. In general everything was very good. Mo and Clive were polite and very kind and helpful and the maps and local guides were very good. Size of rooms etc was excellent for two people although it's a shame that a decent size sink wasn't fitted in the bathroom (there's plenty of room for a normal sink) instead of the tiny handbasin that was fitted.
Thank you for your comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Oystercatchers is proving very popular indeed, being almost fully booked in its second summer with us, so we are grateful for your feedback and will pass this on to the owners. We look forward to welcoming you back with Toad Hall Cottages soon!

The owners of Oystercatchers have now replaced the basin with a larger one, provided kitchen scissors and beautiful quality fully lined curtains to shut out the light. We look forward to welcoming you back to Oystercatchers soon!

We have booked accommodation through Toad Hall Cottages for a number of years and never been disappointed.
The property is beautiful, really well presented with quality furnishings and fittings. Noss Mayo is a hidden gem, perfect for a break.
Yes! we agree with the earlier review A recently developed property with quality appointments etc etc Owners nearby if you needed any help I guess....but not intrusive Would stop again! Graham
We had a great weekend at Oystercatchers, the people are lovely the location works well and the cottage is immaculate with everything you need. Also super pub in walking distance which you need to book.
