The West Country region
The North Devon Coast: For spectacular scenery and beautiful beaches whatever the season, there's no better place in England than North Devon coast and in particular Appledore.
The coastline is as rugged as it is beautiful dotted with magnificent cliffs, tiny cove and picturesque harbours. It was once the haunt of smugglers, pirates and wreckers and the fascinating history is retold in many small museums along the coast. Today visitors who love Henry Williamson's famous Tarka the Otter can retrace Tarka's journey by following the Tarka Trail.
Appledore is ideally located within easy reach of the harbours of Clovelly and Lynmouth which are also perfect places to relax. Meander through the streets of Lynmouth and take a ride on the unique water powered cliff railway to the twin town of Lynton which is perched high on the cliffs. Clovelly is another of the prettiest coastal village where it feels as if time stood still. The only means of transport on these famous cobbled streets are donkeys and sleds.
Appledore itself is a small fishing village about 3 miles from Bideford & 10 miles from Barnstable. There are many attractive areas in the surrounding countryside: Clovelly; the famous picturesque fishing village, is 10 miles away. Lundy Island can be visited by ferry from Bideford.
Just a short drive away approximately 2 miles, the beach at Westward Ho and surrounding areas are recognised as possibly some of the finest and cleanest in Europe - with two miles of soft golden sand, plenty of rock pools and amazing surf.
A little further afield along the coastline surrounding a natural harbour is Ilfracombe with its Victorian architecture, Esplanade and famous Tunnels Beach. The harbour is always busy with fishing boats sailing in and out together with the paddle steamer Balmoral which offers day trips to Lundy Island. North Devon has something to offer and appeal to everyone, take time to come and find out for yourselves, we will make you very welcome.
WALK TO – TRANQUILITY COTTAGE nestles in the centre of Appledore and is only a short stroll to the bustling quayside, restaurants, pubs, galleries and Maritime Museum. An ideal location for enjoying the many attractions North Devon has to offer, you will be a short drive to The Big Sheep, RHS Rosemoor Garden, the National Trust property Arlington Court, Clovelly and much more. Walkers can enjoy coastal walks from the property and the 2 miles of golden sandy beach at Westward Ho! is less than a 20 minute walk. There is also a choice of leisure facilities close by including riding, tennis, golf, swimming, fishing and more. In the evenings, sample one of the six pubs in Appledore, most serving good food.
CYCLE TO - The charming fishing villages of Appledore and Instow, as well as the town of Bideford and Barnstaple. The Tarka Trail is a series of footpaths and cycle-paths around north Devon with over 30 miles of the Tarka Trail available to cyclists between Braunton and Meeth, using the old railways of North Devon.
