Self-catering holiday homes in Appledore
Once described as the ‘little, white fishing village’ by Victorian novelist Charles Kingsley, Appledore still has the feel of a welcoming small community. Its whitewashed terraces on the quay have changed little since Kingsley’s day, while the maze of narrow lanes that drop down to the water are densely packed with pretty cottages painted in different pastel hues, their frontages hung with baskets of overflowing flowers.
A pretty fishing village on the banks of the River Torridge – sleepy in the winter, but lively in the summer - Appledore is a place to indulge simple pleasures like days at the beach, crabbing, boat trips, cream teas and fish & chips. The joy of Appledore is in soaking up its wonderful position. It sits where the Taw and Torridge rivers meet the sea, so you’re never far from the water’s edge. From our Appledore holiday cottages, you can wander its narrow lanes, browse in the craft shops and art galleries, go crabbing off the quay (a small piece of bacon helps!), or take a stroll along the front and drink in the views of Instow with its golden sands. In the summer, you can catch the ferry across for a bit of sunbathing, returning in the evening for a pint on the quay. Perfect days.
