Weve stayed in Appledore several times before and this is by far our favourite cottage. Very central, beautiful decor throughout, cosy with a log burner and lovely views of the estuary.

The cottage is very close to the quay and bedrooms have a great view of the sea. Also close to local pubs so can be very noisy at closing time. Theres no parking but we did manage to park on the road very close to the cottage most days. The car park across the road is free from 6pm to 8am so if youre stuck it doesnt cost to park overnight. The staiRead morers in the cottage are steep and not suitable for those with restricted mobility. There is a very small yard, not very inviting to sit in. Hide

Lovely little cottage in great location. Stairs are a bit steep and tricky but ok with caution. Great shower but bath might be a problem to some people as on a platform which makes it difficult to get in or out of.
