Appledore is a lovely seaside town, the cottage was adequate. The path to the bbq area was overgrown and the garden area looked a bit neglected. Overall it was good value for the price paid.

The location is perfect and the area is amazing- the cottage itself is a brilliant base and had everything you needed. The only negatives are it was very cold and damp and had a damp smell - this would obviously be different in summer. But had everything we needed and we were left some wine and mince pies which was lovely

A great property with all you need in a central location for all local amenities. Loved being able to have my first coffee sat on the harbour steps enjoying the quietness and solitude of the early morning. Also loved that we could drive the dogs to either Instow or Westward Ho beaches close by for a walk before starting our day. The locals are veryRead more warm and welcoming and certainly added to the whole experience. I'm missing Appledore already and am already planning my next visit. Hide

This was a last minute booking for us and we thought this little cottage was lovely. Very well equipped and quaint. It was central to all amenities of Appledore, allowing us to walk to everything we needed. We parked on the main car park a few minutes walk away. To reach the garden, you needed to come out the front door and walk up the side entrywaRead morey and up a long pathway to the very top, past other gardens. We really enjoyed our stay and felt it was value for money. Hide

We had a wonderful stay at Sals Place. The cottage was snug and cosy, the kitchen was well equipped and the double bed very comfortable. Bedding and towels clean and good quality, and we loved the little touches to the cottage. Lots of hot water for a bath after a day of walking the excellent surrounding beaches.

Cottage small but everything you need and perfect for 2 people. In a great location but garden a little way up an alley. Parking very near by and good idea to get a tourist permit from Torridge Council which allows you to use the near by car park and ones locally. Would definitely recommend Sals Place and Appledore for a dog friendly holiday
