The Salt House is a home from home! Comfortable, welcoming and fully equipped it was perfect for a family holiday with our teenager and the grandparents. It was perfectly clean and well maintained.

A lovely furnished cottage with attention to detail. It was well equipped with everything you could possible need. Ideally situated in the centre of Appledore where you could walk the coastal path to Westward Ho and Instow.

We stayed in the salt house appledore over the new year period , it was lovely to be welcomed with a card and gifts for the new year and for us that the Christmas tree was still up. The layout of the upstairs was perfect for bedtime with a 7 year old in the party and all rooms in the house were comfortable and well presented.
