My daughter and I have just stayed in this delightful little cottage.(It is very small with low beams and doorways and the kitchen is a tight squeeze so larger/taller folk be warned!) It is well equipped, spotlessly clean and absolutely everything has been thought of, from a salad spinner to children's games and dvds! It is situated in a lovely village with quaint, narrow streets and very welcoming local residents. The cottage is situated on the coastal path from where you can walk to Westward Ho! Just lovely.

We have fallen in love with Appledore and visited many times, twice using this cottage. It is quirky, comfortable with interesting ornaments and decorations. A lovely friendly dog called Remus lives next door and a Robin will take food from your hand in the garden.
