Found on a quiet traffic-free lane in the village of Appledore - an attractive traditional fishing village with a range of shops, eateries, and a pretty quay. For those who want a break from the stresses of daily life, it is easy to spend a week here, enjoying the relaxed pace of village life, sampling the local pubs and restaurants, and perhaps catching the ferry across the estuary to the neighbouring village of Instow with its beach a yacht club. For guests who would like to explore more of the area, there is plenty to see and do within just a few miles of the property, including RHS Rosemoor, the heritage village of Clovelly, The Milky Way Adventure Park, and the two-mile wide stretch of beach at Westward Ho!

The kitchen area is tucked away in the corner, and is equipped with an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher, and washing machine. Steep wooden kite winder stairs lead to the first floor, where there is one bedroom, a double room with exposed beams and its own TV. The well-appointed bathroom offers a relaxing roll-top bath, as well as a separate shower cubicle, and a WC.

Outside, the property benefits from a small secure area which provides a perfect place for storing surfboards, bikes, etc. As is typical in the village, there is no parking attached to the property, but there is off-road parking available nearby, or guests may prefer to use local pay and display car parks.
