Set in the heart of Appledore, this former fisherman's cottage is a stone's throw from the quayside

Appledore itself offers an array of activities, intriguing shops, friendly pubs, quaint cafes and restaurants serving seafood as a speciality. Visit Appledore’s Maritime Museum and discover its seafaring history or take a boat trip from the quayside and go deep-sea fishing. The golden sandy beach at Westward Ho! is just a mile away or you can take a foot ferry across the estuary to the sandy beach at Instow, where you’ll find the Royal Devon Yacht Club. If you’re a keen golfer, you can head to the Royal Devon Golf Club in Westwards Ho! The local area also offers the historic towns of Clovelly and Hartland, the ancient pannier market town of Bideford and attractions such as Arlington Court and RHS Gardens Rosemoor.

This quaint cottage features an open-plan lounge/diner with a solid oak floor. Set behind the dining room table is a library across one wall, perfect if you enjoy relaxing with a good book during your holiday. In the lounge, on a cold evening snuggle around on the comfortable sofa in front of the wood burner and watch TV or a DVD, also you will find a hi-fi. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes a gas range oven and hood, integrated appliances including microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher, stand alone stainless steel fridge/freezer and quartz work surfaces. From the open-plan living room/diner, the stairs take you to the first floor where you’ll find a well-presented double bedroom featuring oak flooring and a wall mounted flat screen. There is also a separate shower room with WC and underfloor heating on this level. Double doors lead from the kitchen on to a small, enclosed courtyard with decking and outside seating – the perfect spot to relax after a long day of exploring the local area. Parking available close by.

The cottage is well equipped and in a great location for enjoying this pictureesque coastal village. There's no parking at the cottage, but we used the nearby public car park, where you can buy a weekly ticket for 16.

Although it was a lovely warm week the cottage was cool. Don't think you need a 10.5 tog duvet this time of year.

Nice little cottage. Close to amenities. Reasonable price. All mod cons except shaver socket in bathroom and reachable towel rail in bathroom. Also no instruction for disposing of binbags. A 13.5 tog duvet on the bed was much too warm for the time of year.
