A vibrant village

For such a small village, Appledore is certainly vibrant! One of the highlights of the year is the Appledore Book Festival, a nationally recognised event where authors and celebrities give talks and sign books.

Throughout the year, arts and crafts shops and galleries brim with life, while riverside pubs and restaurants offer perfect places to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat. You’ll often find ice cream vans on the Quay, while the independent coffee shops and cafes also sell tantalising, often homemade, titbits.

Described by Charles Kingsley as the “Little White Fishing Village”, the village is steeped in maritime history. The Appledore Shipyard remains in the village, while fishermen’s cottages, now a range of bright colours, are still visible on the winding streets - well worth a look.
