Appledore, Instow and Westward Ho! Cottages

Wake up to the sound of the sea, sailboats and seagulls on your next Devon holiday whilst staying in one of our cottages situated in the beautiful villages of Appledore, Instow and Westward Ho!

On the West side of the River Torridge in North Devon, lies Appledore, a seafaring village of brightly painted fishermen cottages and narrow streets leading to a busy quayside. It’s a great place to stay if you like to be immersed in coastal life. Waking to the sound of masts tinkling in the breeze is truly magical. Once up and out, you could easily lose a day or two browsing the galleries of local artists, launching a ski boat, kayak or a dinghy, enjoying an ice cream or eating and drinking in cheerful pubs and cafes overlooking the water.

On the opposite bank sits Instow. Here you’ll find a cricket pitch that’s almost on the water, Instow Yacht Club, a fabulous deli and shops selling local art. The beach is perfect for a family day out and at low tide, it’s also great for exercising the dog or strolling among the beached sailboats. For a truly special North Devon holiday, don’t miss the sunset here!

Westward Ho! is the area’s beach town. It’s home to England’s oldest links golf course, the Northam Burrows Country Park, dunes, pebble ridge and miles of flat sands. It’s becoming more and more popular with surfers and kite surfers and has changed a great deal in recent times, with new restaurants, shops and cafes adding a more cosmopolitan air. Some things,  happily, will never change, such as the best ice cream in Devon. Form an orderly queue at the Hockings van on sunny days!
