Ship Ahoy is a short walk from the beautiful Appledore waterfront. This attractive ground floor apartment forms part of a Grade II listed Georgian town house. It sits quietly along one of the pretty back streets in the quaint village centre. The property has been the subject of a first rate renovation showing a mix of traditional period features with a modern, contemporary twist. The hall leads to a shared back patio with a private entrance to the apartment. The roomy lounge has a high corniced ceiling, with the original Georgian windows, a Victorian fireplace and rugs over a wooden floor. The spacious kitchen/diner is well equipped, while the attractive double bedroom overlooks the rear courtyard.
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 and Westward Ho! Westward Ho! 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

Excellent apartment, lovely bed linen, furnishings and welcome pack also cleaned to perfection !Mrs Arlene Collins - 10th December 2017
We loved this apartment. It has been furnished to a high standard with a feeling of a home and everything we needed on the doorstep. I could happily live there. The owners were friendly and helpful, leaving a Devon tea for us and helping with our luggage. I would stay there again. Miss Diane Cowling - 7th August 2017
Comfortable, elegant apartment in great location, so car can be left alone!Mr Martin Gibbard - 11th July 2017

Such wonderful and bespoke service, from the property owner - who left fresh scones for us after our long drive up from London, to the after care ensuring everything was OK with the stay. A really great experience, and can't recommend highly enough!Miss Erica Vonderwall - 29th March 2017

We had a lovely time during our stay in Appledore, our hosts provided everything we needed making us feel very welcome and looked after. We have a small baby and the property was very suitable for our needs. Appledore is a very calm and relaxing place with plenty of great restaurants and cafes.Mr and Mrs V - 18th September 2016
What an amazing place to stay. We were able to relax the moment we came through the door. Thanks for the warm welcome and personal touches that made my birthday so memorable. We recommend hiring bikes and cycling the Tarka Trail, beautiful scenery and NO hills!Ms B - 12th September 2016
Utopia, beyond expectations - If you could describe a perfect place to stay then Ship Ahoy is that. The apartment was very very clean, with all mod cons and some nice fresh scones with cream and jam welcomed us. Thank you for a wonderful stay we felt that we had the best place to stay in the whole of Devon. Very happy.Mr T - 5th September 2016
What a lovely place. The Flat was beautifully decorated, Appledore is absolutely lovely. no complaints at all... Highly Recommend!Mr and Mrs C - 2nd September 2016
Had an amazing time in Appledore and this lovely, cosy house. We enjoyed Woolacombe Beach, Hartland Point and walking to Westward Ho!, across the Northam Burrows. All in all, an excellent weekend with the house feeling like a home from home.Mr W - 29th August 2016
