Full of character, Drum Cottage is a cute 17th Century holiday home situated a couple of minutes’ walk away from the quayside and shops in Appledore. Sleeping four people and two dogs, the double-fronted cottage has an original steep curving staircase, quaint window seats, low hanging beams (6ft in height) and low door thresholds. Modern twists such as underfloor heating, a well-equipped kitchen/diner with plenty of units and a light and airy conservatory make Drum Cottage a great choice all year round. The front door leads directly into the low-beamed living room which has a woodburning stove set into a large stone fireplace with a dark wood lintel. This in turn leads into a spacious kitchen/diner and conservatory – a superb open-plan living space providing a sociable area for the whole party to enjoy time together. Patio doors lead out from the conservatory onto a fully enclosed terraced patio garden with outside furniture. A bathroom, with a shower over the bath, completes the accommodation downstairs.  Upstairs there is a good-sized double bedroom and a delightful twin room with characterful window seat. Drum Cottage is just a couple of minutes’ walk through quaint narrow streets with colourful cottages to the quayside with its small range of pubs, shops and galleries. A seasonal ferry takes passengers to the pretty little estuary village of Instow, with its sheltered stretch of sandy beach, award winning deli and further choice of family friendly pubs and restaurants.

The surfing beach and famous Royal North Devon Golf Club at Westward Ho!, indoor pool at Northam, the Big Sheep family attraction and Atlantic Village shopping outlet are all within a short drive.

Beautiful characterful cottage a few steps from the quay in Appledore- exceptionally well equipped & clean. Good base from which to explore north Devon . Designated car parking space is a fabulous bonus.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Very dog friendly and everything you good possibly need for a great holiday.

Mrs Katey W,

Best Holiday cottage we have stayed in due to the thoughtful touches by Kat. We had a jar of doggie biscuits on the side, there was milk in the fridge, flowers on the table, a very useful book full of information to make our stay even more enjoyable. Lovely garden a real sun spot, and the conservatory was a lovely place to relax. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Ms Vanessa F,

Not long arrived home from a Winter Break at Drum Cottage, It was lovely and clean , with welcome extras of Biscuits , Milk and Bread . A delightful cottage , in a great location, we felt very much at home here, and loved the extra space that the Kitchen/Diner gave, looking out to the Courtyard . Hope to book again at some time .
