We loved Tern Cottage for Christmas. It has everything you need for a home from home stay and is beautifully finished. It was really easy to park up in the long term car park on The Quay and just do a few trips to unload as the cottage wasn't that far from the car park. There's plenty to do in Appledore and around the local area. Beth was very helpRead moreful and quick to respond too. We hope to be back sometime! Hide

This fishermans cottage close to the sea is as cute as button and contains all that you need for a relaxing break in Devon. Appledore itself is a calm and relaxing area with great pubs, restaurants and small independent shops. Instow across the estuary also has a fabulous beach where you can sit and watch the world go by. Loved every minute!

What a lovely little cottage. Beth went above and beyond to make our little break work, fantastic communication and so lovely. Tern cottage was a home away from home, a beautiful location, my only disappointment was that the weather was so warm we didn't get to light the log burner. 5+ stars.
