Introducing Simon Friend

Owner, Red Earth ~ Property developers for The Yealm


As a property developer, I’m often asked about my motivation and how I choose the projects undertaken by Red Earth. The simple answer is that I only buy a site if I can honestly say, “I would love to live here”. This intention, which I always try to follow, is particularly true of the idyllic villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, tucked away here in the South Hams.

Standing on the site back in 2016, with the possibility of buying the former River Yealm Hotel and looking out over the estuary, I saw a wonderful opportunity to breathe new life into a delightful old building and in doing so, create homes with some of the most enviable views in the South West.

Stunning waterside setting

The River Yealm provides both Newton and Noss with a magnificently undisturbed, perfectly natural harbour. Indispensable for visiting leisure boats, it’s also a sanctuary for protected wildlife, and an entrancing spot for sightseers.

Keeping it local

The apartments bring a new and exciting opportunity for established village residents who want to continue living in this beautiful location, with the views they’ve grown to love, but in easy-to-manage apartments and gardens. There’s simply nothing else like this available.
