Traditional cottage situated in the attractive fishing village of Appledore, offering a pretty town quay, ferry boat, shops, restaurants, and a choice of pubs and just a short drive to local beaches

This property enjoys a fantastic location in the traditional fishing village of Appledore, where fishing boats bob in the harbour and restaurants and pubs offer the delicious local seafood. Just across the estuary, and accessible by ferry, is the neighbouring village of Instow, where there is a family friendly beach, a pottery studio, art gallery, and a choice of eateries. Further afield, the huge sandy beach at Westward Ho! is just a five-minute drive from the property, offering two miles of sand and a surf school. Other attractions in the area include the privately owned village of Clovelly, the harbour town of Bideford, The Milky Way adventure park, and RHS Rosemoor. There really is something for everyone.

This characterful cottage offers charming accommodation which the owners have thoughtfully styled with some chic maritime touches.

Next to the lounge, the kitchen also has a light and airy feel, and offers an oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washer/dryer.

The contemporary bathroom has a shower over bath (3/4 size) and WC.

Kittiwakes at Appledore, Devon, was a real home away from home. We cannot rate it highly enough! The owners, Judi and Martin were so hospitable, thoughtful and kind, and couldnt do enough for us. The house itself is beautifully presented with every attention to detail. Great location, bus transport a couple of minutes walk from the house and frequeRead morent ( every half hour) to take you into Barnstable or Bideford. Buying a weekly bus ticket for 16.50 is a great saving. We loved our stay! Hide
