Waterfront House is perfectly located for a stay in Appledore. It is close to everything that is going on, has great estuary views and is a short walk to both the Hockings ice cream van and an excellent new restaurant called Flame!

Absolutely love this house- spacious, well equipped and beautifully done up and the views over the water are stunning whatever the weather. A short wander from the harbour shops, cafes and pubs or you can just relax at home watching the view change as the tide goes in and out.

Amazing location, the cottage has been decorated to a high standard. Lovely touches tea, coffee, sugar supplied. Could have stayed here for the summer!

Like what theyve done to the upstairs making a larger double bedroom with ensuite. As usual house was very clean and comfortable. Having a garage was an advantage as our son-in-law brought his kayak.

Great refurbishment since our last visit to Waterfront. Open plan layout and laminate floors really works well. House was very clean and tidy and access to parking was a bonus.
