Beautiful, large cottage full of historic character. Part of the oldest property in the town and well located - only a minute from the quay. Appledore is great if youre taking your dog on holiday (or if youre vegan).

Beautiful cottage. Tucked away with private courtyard garden. Lots of space. Parking on the road wasnt an issue. Thankyou

We had a lovely long weekend with friends in Docton house, which was comfortable & steeped in history. The house was great, with enough space for a party of 7. The kitchen was well appointed & had everything we needed. The sitting room had enough seating for all of us & we lit the wood burner during the evenings ( logs not provided) which was reallRead morey cosy. Great location for exploring Appledore, which is delightful Hide
