Tunnel House is a delightful character fishermans cottage nestling in one of the oldest streets of the picturesque fishing village of Appledore.  Surrounded by colour washed cottages and acessed via its own tunnel, this part of the village has great charm with character pubs serving excellent food, art galleries, restaurants, chandlers and interesting shops all within the surrounding narrow lanes. Less than a hundred yards from the waterfront the cottage retains much of its original character and is very comfortably furnished throughout with gas central heating and an open fire making it a cosy base for all seasons. Three attractive bedrooms reached by two steep staircases with hand rails and some low headroom - comfy double over looking courtyard, bathroom with hand held shower and wc and seperate shower room with wc are on the first floor and a further Kingsize room with low beams and views over the estuary and a twin room are on the second floor. In the living room there is a dining table and seating for six, two comfy sofas, a rocking chair, Smart TV and a wood burner. French windows open on to a private courtyard which has stylish outdoor dining for six. Recently updated country kitchen with slate floor, oak worktops and new appliances:  electric oven, washing machine/tumble drier, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, microwave and toaster. Coat rack on wall. Space for mucky boots/sandy sandals.

This 'little white village' is steeped in maritime history, with fishing boats still regularly unloading their catch, and fishing trips frequently available on the quay. Seats along the quayside offer an opportunity to relax and view the activities whilst taking in the beautiful estuary views towards Instow. A regular ferry service from Appledore across the estuary to the beach and watersports centre of Instow is available in season and the historic Elizabethan port of Bideford and surfing beach of Westward Ho! are both within a 10 minute drive.
