About this property

Enjoy a seaside getaway at this stylish quayside cottage close to pubs, shops, and cafes and just metres from Appledore’s pretty estuary. It features a handy downstairs wet room, a cosy wood burner, and an enclosed patio safe for your canine companions – perfect for a trip away with friends or family. There’s lots to see and do in Appledore, as well as beautiful beaches, and fun family attractions nearby.

The pretty cottage is warm and welcoming with bright interiors, furnished with stylish soft furnishings, nautical touches, and rustic furniture. Step into the dining room, which houses a wood burner in a timber mantelpiece and doors out to the patio. From here, head through to the welcoming lounge where there’s lots of sofa space to sit in front of the Smart TV and watch a movie. You’ll find everything you need to prepare tasty fare in the traditional kitchen and a handy washing machine; there’s also a family shower room on the ground floor. The property has three bedrooms. On the first floor, you’ll find a double with an additional day bed, a bunk room, and a bathroom, with a handy separate WC. Up on the second floor, sits the final bedroom – a charming double. On warm days, sit outside in the enclosed patio courtyard at the front of the cottage.

Wander around and explore the town’s cafes, pubs, and restaurants, uncover the Appledore’s maritime history at the North Devon Maritime Museum, and discover the town’s many art galleries and gift shops. Walk along the two miles of golden sands of Westward Ho! beach, build sandcastles and go surfing (3 miles). Take boat trip to Lundy Island from Bideford (3.5 miles), home to wild ponies, puffins, and stunning scenery. Kids will enjoy an exciting day out at The Big Sheep Farm and Theme Park (4 miles) and the Milky Way Adventure Park (11 miles).

      Very spacious cottage with a fabulous central position. Has a walled garden which was well utilised during our stay due to its lovely south facing position. Would definitely stay there again

      This is a great property in a lovely location. There were 5 of us (three kids) and it was perfect. Highly recommend this cottage and we will definitely return.
