Nestling in one of Appledore's picturesque side streets, this traditional fisherman’s cottage is just a short stroll from the charming quayside and the many pubs, restaurants and galleries on offer.
Perfect for a family of four and two furry friends, make the most of this cottage’s convenient location in the heart of Appledore. Meander along the pretty pastel streets, try your luck at crabbing on the quay, or take the seasonal ferry to Instow Beach, where you can sit and admire the colourful fishing boats while your pups play. At the end of the day, having no doubt worked up an appetite, stop by at one of Appledore’s many dog-friendly pubs and eateries that will be sure to set tails wagging.
Dust off sandy boots and paws in the hallway, and come on into this gorgeous, traditional home. Many a cosy evening can be spent in the open-plan lounge and diner, with its exposed beams and stonework exuding a truly rustic feel, and the gas wood burner at its centre is ideal for the whole family to relax in front of – furry or not! Convenient and well-equipped, the kitchen will provide you with all you need to cook up a storm, which can be enjoyed sitting around the dining table or even out in the enclosed courtyard for a more al fresco experience. After a long day, make use of the large shower in the bathroom and then head upstairs to either of the cosy bedrooms, both delicately decorated and comfortable.
Aside from all of Appledore’s treats – including a dog-friendly maritime museum and a renowned literary festival in the autumn – you’ll be in an ideal location to explore the rest of picturesque North Devon with this cottage as your base. Scamper along the nearby South West Coast Path in either direction and lap up the breathtaking views, or leave no stick unfetched in the Northam Burrows Country Park, just 2.5 miles away. For a bigger day out, the kids will love nearby attractions The Big Sheep and the Milky Way Adventure Park, or if you and your four-pawed pals are feeling adventurous, dogs are warmly welcomed on the MS Oldenburg to Lundy Island.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
