The beautiful village of Newton Ferrers features very prominently in Soft Words Butter No Parsnips, and in particular the little 18th century fisherman’s cottage on the banks of the River Yealm known as ‘Glen Cot’.
 
The story started in about 1925 when John and Winifred Poole took up residence, and continued until around 1961 when they regretfully left Devon.
 
Since that time, the village has become a tourist magnet, and grown in size to accommodate the people who have flocked to live there.
