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.

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.

Good base to explore North Devon with the added bonus of parking - a rarity in Appledore! Short walk into quay, shops and eateries/pubs. Large bedroom and airy kitchen/diner/lounge. Good views across the water towards Instow. Spotlessly clean on arrival and welcome pack of milk and biscuits well received!

Cottage was lovely! Very clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. Pretty central so other places of interest could be visited.

Perfect location near centre of Appledore with safe parking space not far from property within locked gated area. Due to elevated location there are some cobbled steps to negotiate which may prove problematic to the less a led. Cottage really comfortable with everything provided and good quality

Cottage is in good location within easy reach of the shop and pubs. Access via fairly steep steps to far left of garages. Appledore is a pretty village,very friendly and a good base for many days out in the area! Good to have on site parking.

The Stables is a lovely clean and comfortable cottage. It certainly exceeded our expectations. It is situated in an ideal area of Appledore.
