Relax and unwind in this hidden courtyard setting within the ancient fishing village of Appledore with its quaint cobbled, car free streets and explore the choice of local pubs, restaurants and galleries.
Tucked away in a peaceful courtyard setting amongst Appledore’s picturesque cobbled lanes is this delightful cottage. Just steps from the village’s charming cafes, shops and quayside, it is also just 1 mile from the vast Westward Ho! sandy beach. With bright and spacious accommodation that opens onto a pleasant decked patio through large French doors, this is a romantic bolthole for two.
Inside, the reverse-level cottage has been beautifully finished to offer fresh and neutral decor with a modern nautical edge. Prepare tasty meals for two in the contemporary kitchen on the ground floor, dine at the table nearby or head upstairs for a romantic al fresco feast on the decked balcony which overlooks the shared garden below. For those chillier evenings, the stylish velvet sofa in the lounge is the perfect place to cosy up and watch a film.
From the property, set out on foot to explore Appledore’s pretty lanes, brightly-painted cottages, quaint shops and interesting Maritime Museum. In the summer months, catch the ferry to nearby Instow to visit its sandy beach or opt for the 2-mile stretch of golden sand and choice of water sports at neighbouring Westward Ho! town. Visit Bideford (4 miles) to browse its regular markets or catch The Oldenburg to Lundy Island, home to colonies of seals, puffins and Manx shearwaters.
