I loved this cottage when I came with my husband several times in the early 2000 . Now he has passed away I came with my cousin and his wife. The alterations are even better than I could imagine. Love, love, love it.

Lovely property, amazing waterside home with incredible, constantly changing views and perfectly situated for all amenities. Also one of the very few on Irsha Street with allocated parking, which is a godsend.

Modern, bright and spacious, clean and comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen. There's a bathroom for each bedroom and 2x outside seating areas with beautiful ever changing views as the tide goes in and out. Very relaxing! Also - a parking space is a huge bonus as parking isn't easy in Appledore! We stay here every year its our home fromRead more home Hide

Beautiful cottage inside with magnificent views and 2 large balconies. Clean, tidy and pretty well equipped modern home. We were lucky to find extra parking nearby the whole time we were there as none of our cars fitted in the garage. We were 6 adults and 2 dogs and the house still felt spacious. Relaxing quiet area. Would definitely revisit
