The cottage, is in a fantastically placed location in Appledore for food, alcohol and walks on the quayside. Its well equipped if you want to cook or prepare food, but no need if you want to eat or enjoy being out. The cottage is comfortable and ideal for a couple who want a chilled evening in. Spotlessly clean, with a deep bath, went for a short wRead moreeekend, but could spend longer in Appledore and the cottage Hide

New Year spent at Cobble Cottage was a delight. A very well equipped home with a wood stove, of which we took full advantage. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard and its position in the town was perfect for facilities and walks in the area. A very relaxing hideaway from the busy World!

this cottage has everything you need for 2 people as it is very small but it is within walking distance for everything but in a nice quiet street. AS with most places om Devon and Cornwall parking can be an issue but we were lucky most days to be able to mpark near.

Lovely presented cottage in a beautiful little town. The weather was gorgeous but because of the location of the cottage in a small walkway we had to have lights on and didnt get any sunlight sure its brilliant in the autumn and winter

Booked this lovely little cottage at the last minute for myself and my wife ,and we were not disappointed. The cottage is in a really quiet location but right in the centre of Appledore. The cottage has everything you need and is a great base to venture out from. We hope to return for another break during the autumn / winter.

Absolutely fantastic cottage for two in a beautiful setting, very well equipped and clean, and beautifully decorated. The owners also very kindly had our lost property posted back to us, which we are so grateful for. Would 100% recommend!

I cannot fault Cobble Cottage - such a lovely spot right in the heart of Appledore. The cottage was very cosy and was very comfortable and fully equipped. I was very pleasantly surprised to find everything I needed and more! Would definitely like to stay again.
