Very well equiped house. Perfect location with lovely views of estuary. We were able to walk to down to the quay each evening, the walk back up was a little steep but the drink helped! Our family had a wonderful holiday.

Really had one of our best holidays here. We know North Devon really well but had never stayed in Appledore - the house was a short walk from the village centre with lots of lovely things to see. The house interior was spotless and I would say the best equipped holiday home I have ever stayed in. Lots to do and a superb base to do it from. Thank yoRead moreu so much. Hide

A clean, delightful place to stay with beautiful views. We were a party of 7 with ages from 8-80 and we all had a happy time at The Rare Old Station in Appledore.

Reviewed by Linda, 27th July 2018

This cottage provided everything we needed for an excellent week away. The location with the quay and pubs, restaurants, shops and takeaways was superb.

Reviewed by Rex, 6th July 2018

Excellent holiday location, very well appointed property, very clean and well presented. Very easy access to the waterfront with good food available from the local pubs, caf's, chippy and of course local ice-cream!. Idea base to visit other local resorts and towns. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the facilities to anyone.
