Well maintained very clean cottage in an excellent location. Kitchen benefits from modern appliances. Relatively close to public car park. Paid 30 for a one week permit for convenience of not having to find a space on on street parking as very popular. Bathroom adequate but no hairdryer. Highly recommended.

A cosy cottage in a very convenient location for exploring Appledore. Less than two minutes' walk from the Beaver Inn and the Royal George. We felt that the bathroom was a little tired, and that the cottage lacked a few personal touches, but on the whole we had a great holiday.

A delightful cottage with all of Appledore within easy walking distance. Well equipped for your stay with a wonderful enclosed tropical paradise to the rear, perfect for evening drinks or alfresco meals. The carpark is 2 minutes walk away and very reasonable at 22 for a full week. All in all a wonderfull cottage from which to enjoy Noth Devon.
