Waterside Cottage is right by the waterside with stunning views across the water to Northam Burrows and up to Braunton Burrows and Saunton Sands in the distance. Formerly a fisherman's cottage, it is a perfect base for exploring everything North Devon has to offer. There are two first floor bedrooms, a Dingle and a double, with another Single bedroom on the second floor up some steep stairs. Two of the bedrooms look out to sea. There is an open fire in the lounge with an archway leading through to a well-equipped kitchen/diner. Patio doors lead out to small and secluded patio directly above the water, a perfect spot to enjoy the sunset. Appledore quayside has a small range of pubs, shops and galleries. A seasonal ferry takes passengers to the pretty little village of Instow across the estuary, with its sheltered stretch of sandy beach, 17th century pier and cosmopolitan yacht club. Historically celebrated for its artists and craftspeople the village now boasts an arts festival and the Appledore Crafts Company, an artist’s co-operative showcasing a broad range of arts and crafts from ceramics and photography to jewellery and painting. There are pleasant walks along the sunny, south-facing quay and along the river towards Bideford. A short drive takes you to Westward Ho! which is the only place in Britain with an explanation mark in its name, but there's more to it than quirky grammar. Golden Bay beach is a long strip of sand backed by a pebble ridge. On the northern end, you can access the Northern Burrows, a scientifically important area which juts out into the mouth of the estuary. A site of special scientific interest, it boasts sand dunes, salt marsh, grassland, rocky shore and is teeming with wildlife, including rare plants, insects, birds and stunningly vivid lichen. Drive in the other direction to Barnstaple, the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. It is a charming place that comfortably blends a handsome past with an energetic, present-day buzz. It has a mix of cutting-edge retail outlets, long-established family owned stores and little boutiques
