Cockle Cottage is a delightful character fishermans cottage nestling in one of the oldest streets of the picturesque fishing village of Appledore. Surrounded by colour washed cottages and with no vehicular access, this part of the village has great charm with character pubs serving excellent food, art galleries, restaurants, chandlers and interesting shops all within the surrounding narrow lanes. Less than a hundred yards from the waterfront the cottage is furnished in a bright contemporary style whilst retaining the original character of this former fisherman's home. Deceptively spacious and laid out over three floors, sea glimpses are available from the top floor. Ideal for enjoying holidays with family and friends the cottage offers an attractive and cosy beamed lounge with a wood burner in a stone fireplace for comfort in the cooler seasons. A separate dining room with ample space for relaxed dining. There is a good sized double bedroom and bathroom on the first floor and a further two twin bedrooms are on the second floor all reached by low curved staircases (restricted height). For relaxation and alfresco dining the cottage also offers a fully enclosed walled patio with garden furniture. Cockle Cottage is part of Appledore's seafaring history and a trip to the local North Devon Maritime Museum offers an interesting insight into the area's past. The Elizabethan port of Bideford with its many shops, cafes and restaurants is within 10 minutes' drive as is the sandy surfing beach of Westward Ho! A great base for enjoying a seaside break or for exploring the dramatic coastline and spectacular countryside in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The cottage was very comfortable, well-equipped and very nicely decorated. The family bathroom was large with plenty of space for towels etc though the fixed shower screen was a bit awkward to reach the taps. Unfortunately the weather was not good enough to enjoy the very pleasant courtyard garden. Location was excellent and the narrow street was very pretty. We read that vehicle access was not possible but the long stay car park was near enough to the property. We had a iovely time. Appledore is very pretty and there is a good choice of places to eat. We particularly like John's cafe and store.
