Early Tide is a charmingly updated 18th century cottage enjoying a spectacular waterfront location at Bridgend in Noss Mayo on the Yealm Estuary. Steeped in history, with beams reputedly taken from Napoleonic warships, Early Tide now makes a stylish, welcoming and comfortable retreat. Furnished and decorated in a contemporary beach house style with a nautical flavour, the cottage has its own, two-tiered terrace right over the water with stunning views of the river - herons, egrets, ducks and swans are all regular visitors. The outlook extends to the opposite village of Newton Ferrers, down the estuary with all its colourful boat life, to the wooded headland above the beach. A short walk takes you into the centre of Noss Mayo with its two excellent pubs. The beautiful woodland path beyond the village leads to the coast with spectacular sea views and to the secluded Cellars Beach.
