Traditional fisherman’s cottage in the heart of the attractive harbour-side village of Appledore, just a few minutes from shops, restaurants, and the shoreline.

This property is located right in the centre of the pretty village of Appledore, which is known for its narrow winding streets and colourful cottages. There are a number of shops, bars, and cafes, as well as an interesting maritime museum. The village is located on the mouth of the River Torridge and visitors may like to take the enjoyable boat trip across the estuary to the village of Instow. Just one mile away is the large beach at Westward Ho!, the perfect place to spend a day.

Entering this cottage from the narrow street, guests will come straight to the lounge with its seaside-themed decoration, stone fireplace with wood burner, comfortable seating, TV and DVD. The dining room has an attractive wooden feature fireplace, a pine dresser, and dining table seating four. The fridge/freezer is also here, housed in the cupboard. An archway leads from here to the kitchen which is equipped with an oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine. Steep cottage-style steps lead to the first floor, where there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom is a spacious double, with an en-suite bathroom, whilst the other is a bunk bedroom suitable for children. The property’s bathroom has a bath and WC.

Outside, there is an enclosed patio area immediately to the rear of the property. Up a 40-metre-long sloping drangway is the garden, with views across the neighbouring gardens, BBQ, and garden furniture. There is roadside parking a short walk from the property, or alternatively guests may prefer to use the nearby public car park. Guests may bring up to two dogs by arrangement and at an extra fee.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The location couldn't be faulted, Appledore is completely gorgeous and the cottage was so close to the beach and facilities that it couldn't get any better. The town was really welcoming with great pubs and restaurants and was really dog friendly which was great for our Portuguese Water Dog - would recommend!

This is a lovely cozy cottage very close to the centre of Appledore. The cottage is full of character features but due to its age does have its quirks! There is a small courtyard at the back door but the cottage also has a beautiful sunny garden, which is a real bonus. Being close to the town centre means the shops and eating places are close by.

This was ideal for our family of 2 adults and 2 young children.

Reviewed by Helen, 19th May 2019

Lobster Pot is well situated for all amenities in Appledore and the coastal path passes along the road outside. It is in a quiet road with very little through traffic. There is a car park within 100m although we managed to park on a road (might be trickier during peak times). The cottage has a lovely bright, comfortable living room and front bedrooRead morem, however, the shower cubicle is very small and the kitchen is also quite tight for space. Lovely beaches close by and five pubs to choose from! Hide
