This property is located in the fishing village of Appledore, which has retained the traditional atmosphere of a slower pace of life of times gone by. In the summer months, a ferry runs across the Torridge estuary to the village of Instow where there is a pretty beach, as well as a yacht club and yet more eateries and pubs.

Skern Lodge, an activity centre providing a wide range of outdoor activities is on the outskirts of the village. For families The Big Sheep and Milky Way are nearby and the renowned cobbled harbour village of Clovelly is well worth a visit. Or there is Atlantic Quay if some shopping therapy is required.
