Situated right in the heart of pretty and historic Appledore, this lovely cottage is the perfect base for a romantic weekend away and exploring North Devon.
A beautifully designed property in the heart of the pretty fishing village of Appledore, Sailmakers Cottage benefits from its own off-road parking space and is just metres from the scenic quayside. Cosy and charming, it is the perfect base for a coastal getaway or family break.
Step into the cottage from the picturesque street and you’ll find yourself in the beautiful open-plan, split level lounge/kitchen/diner. It’s a pleasure cooking in the sleek kitchen to serve up on the circular dining table before retiring to the sofas for relaxing evenings chatting, reading or watching DVDs or your favourite series on the TV. If you don’t fancy cooking, there is an array of fantastic eateries just steps from the front door, from cafes to fish and chip shops and restaurants. When it’s time for bed, head upstairs to one of the two homely en-suite double bedrooms, one of which boasts a whirlpool bath. Like in all traditional fisherman’s cottages, the doorways and ceilings are lower than you might be used to, so please mind your head.
Quirky boutiques, eateries, a play park and a riverside promenade can be found in Appledore, and the riverside town of Bideford (4.5 miles) offers yet more choice and the outstanding Burton Art Gallery. Enjoy walks along the scenic Tarka Trail, beach days at Westward Ho! (3 miles) and trips to RHS Rosemoor (11.5 miles), The BIG Sheep (4 miles) and The Milky Way (11.5 miles). Just across the river is the village of Instow (5.5 miles) which can be reached by passenger ferry at high tide.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
