The Hobbit’s is a cosy character cottage tucked away in the quiet lanes leading up from the quay in the picturesque fishing village of Appledore. With no vehicular access, this, the oldest part of the village has great charm with several character pubs, art galleries, restaurants, chandlers and interesting shops all within the surrounding narrow lanes. From the quay with its selection of individual shops, pubs and locally renowned delicatessen and café there are wonderful views across to the watersports centre and beach at Instow and visitors can enjoy a short boat trip on the seasonal ferry across the estuary. The cottage has been newly renovated for the 2017 season and is decorated and furnished to compliment it’s many original features including low beams and original inglenook fireplace whilst offering quality and contemporary style. The front door opens directly into an open plan living space with low beams(6ft), a woodburner for the cooler seasons and a steep open tread curved staircase to the first floor. A newly fitted and well equipped kitchen can be found at the rear of the cottage and a pristine bathroom is also found on the ground floor. On the first floor two small attractive bedrooms complete the accommodation.
The village's seafaring character and delightful setting make it a favourite haunt of artists, craftsmen and writers. The glorious sandy beach and Royal golf links of Westward Ho! and the Elizabethan Port Town of Bideford with further amenities are each within a 10 minute drive. For families The Big Sheep and Milky Way are nearby and the renown cobbled harbour village of Clovelly is well worth a visit. This pretty picture-postcard setting of colourful narrow streets lined with flowers, and a myriad of boats bobbing up and down on the estuary provide a fabulous backdrop for memorable holidays, and The Hobbit’s is the perfect place to stay.
