STUNNING, UNINTERRUPTED VIEWS OVER THE ESTUARY AND TOWARDS THE SEA, SLEEPS 4 + 2 

Backing directly onto the estuary, where the rivers Taw and Torridge meet, this period four bedroom home has been refurbished to a high standard and offers excellent views in an ideal location.

It is a few yards from the rockpools and one of Appledore's best family pubs, and a 5 minute, level walk from Appledore's quayside, with its fishing boats, crabbing lines, galleries and restaurants. There is much to do in the area. Across the estuary is the pretty village of Instow with its sand dunes and sailing club. Or 1 mile in the other direction takes you to the sandy beaches of Westward Ho!, the salt marshes of Northam Burrows, and the site of England's oldest golf course, The Royal North Devon. Other attractions which are short trips away include Clovelly, Lundy Island, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way. Or you could just enjoy the evening views of the estuary from the small enclosed patio area. Seals have been spotted just below the house.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and retains much charm including steep, cottage-style stairs. There are FOUR bedrooms: on the second floor there are 2 singles both accessed via a step up, 1 with estuary views and additional trundle bed (can be made into a double or twin on request) and 1 with en-suite shower and WC. On the first floor is 1 large double and 1 bunk room with 2'6'' beds (suitable for children under 12). Bathroom: on the first floor has 4'6'' bath with shower over bath, heated towel rail and WC. The ground floor offers an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner: well-equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine (in understairs cupboard), microwave, and seating area with a step down to bi-folding patio doors leading to a terrace. The lounge area offers a sitting area with TV and DVD. Outside: glass balustrade terrace with uninterrupted views over the estuary and towards the sea. Amenities: parking is in nearby car park or roadside parking within 5 minute walk. Bed linen, Wi-Fi, electric and central heating included. Cot and highchair available. 1 dog welcome (2 small dogs by arrangement). Regret no smoking within the property. Location: rock pools 15 yards, beach 1 mile, pubs and shops short walking distance. Arrival time: 3:30pm

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

If you like to be close to water then you cannot beat this cottage for proximity! At high tide the water laps at the wall below the little patio which is wonderful during the daytime and a lovely sound to go to sleep to at night. The views across the estuary are fantastic. The cottage is well equipped, clean and generally comfortable although the sRead moreofas in the front sitting room are a little small and hard and the stairs are fairly steep. Parking nearby was easy and wifi connection good. Hide

Fantastic location with amazing views out over the estuary and a short walk into Appledore. Living space a little snug, but as we spent so much time outside, this wasn't an issue. Would thoroughly recommend it!

Very poor value for money. Everything was done "on the cheap" Have used Holiday Cottages before but this will be the last time. I feel like I have been robbed.

Ideally situated situated cottage in lovely friendly village.Cottage could do with a few improvements but overall was fine.Bottle of wine and milk in fridge on arrival was a nice touch.Good base for exploring larger places nearby.Dot be put off by having no parking wasn't a problem in week we stayed at the end of June.Washer /dryer would have been Read morean advantage as nowhere outside to dry towels/clothes etc when been to the beach otherwise well equipped for a short stay.

Crabbing from the balcony is great if the tide is high enough. Level walk to village with good local stores, play area, ice cream van and chip shop. Locals friendly and the location wonderful for crabbing. Drive to several sandy beaches OK. Car park handy. Typical fisherman's cottage - STEEP steps and steps between areas downstairs. Due to inadequaRead morete seating OK for 4 but not 6 (even when 2 were under 6). Don't take too many belongings. Apart from master bedroom storage space is limited. Hide

An absolutely fantastic gem of a place, perfect location right on the sea/estuary, wonderful to have breakfast watching the tide go out. The view across the estuary at sunrise and sunset from the bedrooms was magical. A short stroll into the cute little Appledore, a great little deli and supermarket to pick up all necessaries for a weekend break. TRead morehere are some fantastic looking pubs, which we didn't have time to visit, and walks right round the headland to Westward Ho. Will come again! Hide

I don't want to give it a good review because others will use it too. I want to keep it all to myself.
