Noss Mayo is about 10 miles to the east of Plymouth, and 20 miles to the west of Salcombe. Newton Ferrers with its shops is either a 5 minute walk at low tide (via the "Voss") or approximately 1 mile by road.
Plymouth Airport and ferry terminal are both within 15 miles. More locally, there is a bus service to Plymouth and other local towns and villages. In the summer months, there is a passenger ferry service to Wembury on the western bank of the River Yealm.
The nearest beaches are Stoke Beach or Old Cellars Beach (approx 1.5 miles), with other sandy beaches at Mothecombe (5 miles) Bigbury and Burgh Island, and excellent surfing at Bantham (15 miles).
The South West Coastal Path can be picked up virtually outside the door of Honeysuckle Cottage. Much of the section around Noss Mayo is known as Lord Revelstoke's Drive, having been laid out by the eponymous landowner in the mid 19th Century as a carriage drive for surveying his estate. The benefit of his largesse today is one of the most spectacular and accessible parts of the Coastal Path, with fabulous sea views towards Burgh Island in the east, and West across Yealm Bay. There are numerous other footpaths which enable a number of different circular walks of varying distance.
Noss Mayo is an ideal base for boating, sailing and fishing. Noss Hard is ideal for launching and retrieving small craft, and guests can bring their own small trailored boats and can keep them out of harm's way in the garage when not in the water.
There are two public tennis courts and a grassed children's playground, approximately 1 minute walk from the cottage. Both are sheltered by Brookings Down Wood, which is managed to provide locals and visitors with glorious, well marked woodland walks.
