Great recommendation from Lisa Bengy at North Devon Gazette. Ideal location for sight seeing and exploring the local area. Good local places to eat including some excellent fish and chips. A comfy character cottage, well equipped and ideal for either a short or long break

An excellent cottage (with an adjacent parking space) well located in easy reach of the varied facilities of the lovely and interesting village of Appledore. We went out of season so noise from the pub next door was minimal.

It is right next door to a very small pub which didnt bother us as walls of cottage very thick. A great place with plenty to see and some good walks.

Lovely cottage, clean & all the equipment you will need for your stay. Fantastic little pub next door that has live music 4 times a week so you have to be aware of a bit of noise but it doesnt go on late into the night, about 11-30ish. But why not go next door and enjoy the music as the pub is really friendly & the atmosphere is cracking. AppledoreRead more is a beautiful little town & near plenty of other beauty spots so well worth a stay . Hide

Sailmakers cottage is a beautiful property in a great location in Appledore. It had parking for 1 vehicle which was great and unusual to find. It is next door to a friendly pub which did not bother us at all. The property was nicely furnished with lovely decor. The door entrances are low so duck or grouse!! We really enjoyed our stay,(as did our poRead moreoches as the property is pet friendly!). Hide
