Mrs Heather P,

very impressed with our accommodation at Appledore.A lovely seaside resort. Not much in the way of beach but a short ferry ride across to Instow is ideal for family's and dogs!The property was very close to everything you need and Irsha Street is ancient with interesting tales of the past.Also the local bus handy for those who would prefer a ride to lots of other nearby resorts.Marsdens are top of the list for us and will be returning to North Devon!

Mrs Linda T,
