Property code: STABE

A delightful and quaint barn conversion located in the pretty fishing village of Appledore in North Devon, you will be within easy reach of local beaches, coastal walks, and the harbour town of Bideford.

Situated in the beautiful fishing village of Appledore, this contemporary barn conversion will make a wonderful base for your holiday in North Devon. It’s located on the River Torridge, less than two miles from the stunning Northam Burrows where you’ll often find local livestock roaming the grassland behind the beach. There are a couple of delightful pubs and restaurants in town where you can dine before returning home to relax in front of the wood burner.

With promises of rest and relaxation on the private decking and views overlooking the estuary, this contemporary conversion is the perfect getaway for couples and solo travellers alike. Filled to the brim with character, the exposed beams and stone fireplace offer countryside charm like no other while the open-plan living area is sympathetically decorated to accentuate these features. Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee on colder mornings in front of the fire or dine alfresco on the decking on a bright summer afternoon - this property is a charming place to stay all year round. Spacious and stylish, the cottage boasts a large master bedroom with vaulted ceilings, hardwood flooring and exposed beams, making it great for those lazy mornings and early nights.

The village offers everything you could need for a quiet, restful break as there is a range of eateries, independent shops, and a working fishing quay nearby, a great place for a stroll whilst watching the boats come and go. In the summer months, a ferry runs across the estuary to the neighbouring village of Instow where there are yet more places to eat, a number of craft workshops, a yacht club, and a beach.

Great property in a lovely location. Clean comfortable and cozy. To have parking in a village where parking is difficult made it a good choice. Within easy walk of shops and pubs was fantastic

The property was good overall, but the very difficult access via a very uneven stairway, was not a good start to the holiday. We arrived in the rain and this did not help, as to gain access to the property from the car park space involved a trek of probably 30 - 40 metres, navigating the uneven cobbled stones staircase, a narrow passageway and evenRead moretually arriving at the front door. We dreaded the thought of our last day and returning our luggage back to the car, as rain was forecast. It did rain Hide

Brilliant to have designated parking. The steps up to the front door quite a challenge with luggage. It was a very relaxing holiday home well appointed and very comfortable to live in we should have booked for longer.

The cottage was perfect for our short break. It is well equipped and the rooms are spacious. We could even see the river from the balcony - lovely sunsets. The parking spot is a great asset and in fact we used buses to get around - leaving the car safe in a gated space. A trip to Lundy Island - with dolphins and puffins was the perfect end.

Lovely cottage and well equipped. Felt at home. Not too far from the centre. Not having to worry about a parking space is very welcome.

Cottage very well appointed and very comfortable. Location not ideal for those with walking difficulties because of steep steps to access but I guess you could say thats a consequence of the area in which its located. Would definitely stay again. Parking very good too.
