Tucked away in one of the oldest streets in the quaint fishing village of Appledore, Cockle Cottage is a deceptively spacious three storey cottage. Having been tastefully and sympathetically restored the property accommodates up to six people and 2 dogs. Surrounded by similar cottages in narrow lanes, access is by foot only although restricted parking is available along the quay and in public carparks close by.
Great thought has been given in furnishing the property with light, bright décor and complimenting accessories enhancing the nautical theme which runs throughout. The spacious living room has a beamed ceiling, comfortable seating and woodburning stove set into a stone fireplace for cooler evenings. A door from the living room leads out to the fully enclosed garden. The kitchen is modern with high gloss grey units and is very well equipped for groups of 6. There is also a separate dining area where everyone can enjoy a meal together. On the first floor an extremely spacious family bathroom has a shower over the bath, wash basin and WC. A double bedroom with feature fireplace is also on this floor. Two further bedrooms – both twins – are up a low curved staircase (restricted height) and benefit from sea glimpses. Outside, there is an enclosed walled courtyard with potted plants and patio furniture.
Cockle Cottage is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the quayside along the quaint, narrow streets where many of the fishermen’s cottages date back to the Elizabethan era. The quayside has a small but interesting range of pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries. During the summer a ferry takes passengers across the estuary to the pretty little village of Instow, with its sheltered stretch of sandy beach and family friendly eateries. In addition, the Blue Flag surfing beach of Westward Ho!, indoor pool at Northam and the Royal North Devon Golf Club are all just a short drive away.

It was great that all the things we needed were provided, everything was very clean and looked lovely. There was plenty of space for us, and the location was perfect for us as well. The welcome package was greatly appreciated, as was all the helpful information. Property looked exactly like the pictures. A lot of attention to detail meant everything we needed was provided, plus some really helpful extras like tea bags, crabing equipment and a wind break. Excellent location and very clean. Had a lovely holiday
Property was excellent, handy for the amenities, plenty of places to eat and drink, and beaches were a 5-10 min drive which was ideal.
Cockle cottage is in a great location in appledore,good size cottage, fans would be a bonus in this cottage as upper floors very warm. Only 2minutes from the front, nice restaurant and couple nice pubs. John's shop and bakery excellent. Great base for exploring.
Lovely cottage in the heart of Appledore, was ideal for our family of 4 and the bathroom is huge!!! Is close to all amenities in the village....Johns is a great place for all your essentials. We are out every night and would highly recommend The Flame Factory, The Seagate and The Beaver Inn. All great places to eat and the kids loved them too. Catching the Ferry to Instow is also a must and it has a lovely beach there too. All in all we had a really nice time and will definately use Marsdens again.
Beautiful cottage which is immaculate. Appledore itself is really pretty with lots of quaint shops, cafes & pubs. Johns' has everything you could possibly need. Instow has a lovely beach which the dogs loved. I recommend Instow Inn & Quay Inn. Lynton and Lynmouth is well worth the visit, it's pretty special. Thank you!
