The tastefully decorated lounge is an ideal space to unwind in at the end of a great day, with TV/DVD, a range of board games and books, and plenty of seating including a sofa bed (if guests require). The pretty dining area offers views across the Rivers Torridge and Taw and across to Instow and Crow Point.

Exploring the apartment further, there's a cosy double bedroom with a TV. You will also have access to a shared patio with seating.

Great location just a minutes walk from the Quay, shops and restaurants with lovely views from both the front and the back of the flat over the estuary. Unfortunately we found the property very dusty and in need of some TLC, it had obviously been a holiday let for many years and some maintenance had been overlooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip bRead moreut definitely not a four star property. Hide

This little flat is a little worn in places but there is everything you need and it is comfortable. The views from the lounge are lovely and although there are quite a few stairs up to the flat, you wouldnt get the view if it was a lower floor place. Appledore is really lovely with plenty of fine places to eat . We had a lovely holiday.

The Captains View apartment is well furnished and equipped, its location is convenient to the Quayside. The village is definitely not a shopping area, one small supermarket only. Places to eat are in the expensive band, the Yard, a Tapas style restaurant is good but portions are typically tapas. The Beaver Inn is definitely a pub / restaurant, goodRead more food, but expensive. The Royal George gets top marks for service, quality and quantity, along with the lovely staff. The stairs are steep. Hide
