  • Local beach at Northam Burrows is only a few miles away

Property code: MOONF

Traditional terraced cottage located in the attractive fishing village of Appledore, just a short walk from the waterfront and village amenities including shops and eateries.

This charming cottage nestles in an historic cobbled street which leads down to Appledore’s pretty quayside. The fishing village sits at the mouth of the River Torridge where you can watch the local fishermen returning with the day’s catch. There is a lively, artistic community here, too, and plenty of good quality dog-friendly pubs and restaurants - many of them serving locally-sourced seafood. You are very close to some wonderful walks for you and your dog to enjoy, including some outstanding beaches.

As soon as you step inside the front door, you will notice the traditional character of this cottage, with its exposed beams and the homely wood burner at its heart. At the same time, there are plenty of modern amenities on offer, such as the TV/DVD so you can keep up with your favourite programmes as you relax on the sofa. The cottage kitchen is well-equipped, featuring a washing machine perfect for washing dog towels after long coastal walks. Comfort and cosiness are abundant in the furnishings and fittings, especially in the restful, welcoming bedrooms. Guests should be aware that there are low ceilings and doorways throughout this traditional property.

Northam Burrows Country Park (1 mile), a wildlife-rich area of sand dunes and salt marshes, is in walking distance. Dogs love it here, with plenty of scents to seek out, though when sheep are grazing, they are best kept on a lead. The beach of Westward Ho! (2 miles) is just the other side of the burrows, beyond a distinctive pebble ridge, where no dog restrictions are placed in the winter, but you are asked to keep to the northern part of the beach during the summer. Chase a ball, splash in the waves, surf, swim, sunbathe or build sandcastles on this glorious stretch of golden sand.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

we had a lovely time despite some rather inclement weather. Ideally placed for the quay. We took a short drive to the Northam country park most days to walk the dog. The walk along the beach at low tide was amazing. The local pubs are mostly good with the Champ having live music most nights.

We were greeted in the car park by John on our arrival, he had already purchased our ticket, we were then shown to the cottage and had a tour around a bottle of wine was in the fridge along with milk, tea and sugar was available, the location is very quiet and a few minutes walk from the river and local shops and caf, we really enjoyed our stay. ThRead moree care even carried on after we left, we had left a small item behind which John posted to us the next day, great customer service. Hide

Owners were very friendly and helpful. Lovely cosy cottage within a stones throw from the harbour. Lovely small village with all amenities very close by. Beautiful beach at Instow, just the other side of the harbour. Bike hire at a good price was really good, with easy cycle paths to go on. (Bike hire was in Bideford)

This was a lovely quaint cottage and the little village is very picturesque, but for us a little too quiet and we travelled out quite a bit. Some lovely touches from John milk and wine. Parking 16 for week in main car park. For us personally the no phone signal at all in the cottage and no WIFI was an issue for us to be able to stay in contact withRead more family. The door frames are low - ok for me but not hubby. Lovely large cream tea in market kitchen. Hide

Cottage is in a perfect location and Appledore is picture perfect, the cottage is a couple of minutes walk from the car park which is only 16 for the week with no problems in getting a space we would definitely go back. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and some milk and loved every minute of being there
