Fisherman's View was in a superb location in Appledore. It was easy to park near the cottage. The cottage was great - we ate out at the various pubs and restaurants but it would have been fine cooking at the cottage. The shower was fab! We would return. Our dog loved it too.

Lovely location,cute little cottage Very rustic, watch yourself on the steep Stairs. Only real negative as previously mentioned, bit of a trek to find grass for The Dogs so drove around to Instow with them most days only 10 min. The Royal George Pub & Restaurant Down Irsha Street is outstanding and well worth a visit. Yes would stay there again.

Our second visit to Fisherman's View, and certainly not our last. Situated in the lovely village of Appledore, it has everything we need for a weekend of peace, as a family. Woodburner, sea views, rolltop bath, cosy interior and tasteful decor. My wife and daughters love it. As do I. See you next time

This cottage is in a great location and Appledore is a great place to stay and use as a base to explore the nearby coastal villages. Great views from the bedroom and bathroom!

The cottage is in a great location in Appledore, with everything close to hand. It was clean and the kitchen and bathroom are to a high standard. Nice outside courtyard (which we didn't use in early February). It was great to find somewhere that would take two dogs, as so many dog-friendly places accept just one.

We had a lovely week in Appledore staying in Fisherman's cottage. The cottage was welcoming and beautifully clean, we loved the quirky decor and the location is fantastic for exploring. We have stayed in a couple of different cottages around England and would not hesitate to recommend this one.

My mother, my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fisherman's Cottage. It is very conveniently placed for all numerous pubs and other facilities within Appledore. Guests should be aware that the stairs are quite steep and, being a genuine cottage, there is limited headroom in places.

In an excellent location in the middle of Appledore. 2 minutes walk to Quay and local Pubs. Had all the euiptment you needed for a pleasant stay. Accomodation over 3 floors with steep stairs not suitable for older guests. Super views from upstairs and a fabulous shower and huge bath.
