In Appledore, near the lifeboat station, one of a neat Victorian terrace of cottages with terrific views over the estuary of the rivers Taw and Torridge. Lots of interesting maritime and avian activity to observe, so well worth packing binoculars. In front, a tiny bit of walled area; at the back, a courtyard (table/chairs, barbecue) on two levels, the upper level leading to a back gate. Inside, a comfy family home. Hall; cosy, front-of-house living room looking over the estuary with lots of afternoon sunlight through bay windows and attractive fireplace ('living flame' electric fire), TV/DVD; dining room at the back, full of morning sunlight; neat fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave) with back door to garden. Washer-drier in understairs cupboard. From hall, steep stairs (stairgate) up to two bedrooms – a double with great views and TV, and a single; bathroom (suite with separate shower). More stairs up to attic room with 5' double bed and sofa bed, TV/DVD, more great views and en suite shower-room (shower, loo). One hundred yards to coastal path, little pebbly rock pool beach, pubs.

The West Country region

North Devon: its coast is perhaps the most varied of all, from Hartland Quay with its tremendous cliffs and multi-coloured rocks like dinosaurs' backs, via car-free Clovelly village tumbling to the sea, and the estuaries of the river Torridge (where Tarka lived) and river Taw, and Braunton's wilderness of sand dunes (all good for birdwatching), to the best sand/surf beaches in Devon at Saunton (the West Country's best golf course too), Croyde and Woolacombe, all the way to Exmoor.

The main town is Barnstaple - busy, thriving, not too big. The Tarka Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows, very attractively, the river Torridge from deep inland to the sea and on past Instow's good beach and lovely cricket ground to Bideford, from where Elizabethan merchantmen sailed. From Hartland Point's lighthouse, great views to Lundy Island - and from Ilfracombe ships (day trips) to it. In Appledore unusual ships are built and its heart is very pretty. Inland, woods and fields roll, sometimes steeply, with streams, rivers and farms, almost totally unspoilt - as is most of the coast. Its north-west, stretching from Hatherleigh to Hartland, is Devon's least changed, least visited, least inhabited part, a country of big fields, some forests, gently undulating, with long, long views beneath big skies where old men in their vegetable gardens look up as a car passes. Holsworthy is the main (very small) town, with square, market, firm purpose. The river Tamar rises in the Tamar Lakes (watersports, fishing). The roads are straighter and less high-hedged than most in Devon - and emptier.

Appledore

Appledore: boat building and fishing village (pubs, delis, shops, galleries) of quay (estuary views), old cottages and narrow streets at the mouth of the Taw and Torridge estuary. Beach across the water at Instow (watersports). Westward Ho! (sandy beach, surfing, golf), 2 miles (or 2½ mile walk with bus back). Fishing and Tarka Trail cycle track beside the Torridge. Buses to Bideford (port town), 2 miles. Barnstaple, 10.
