The West Country / Devon 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.

Bideford is an attractive town in North Devon on the West bank of Torridge river where it widens to form the estuary. The river is forded by a fine arched stone bridge built in 1535 to replace a wooden one constructed around 1300. In the 1500’s Bideford was Britain’s third largest port and takes its name from “By-the-ford”. Known for its shopping, the town holds weekly produce and craft markets. It also has some excellent antique shops. Known locally as drangs, the narrow backstreet's and alleyways winding up from the quay and river hide no end of treasure to be sought out by seasoned shoppers. From the quay, take a boat trip to Lundy Island about 12 miles away in the Bristol Channel. Scattered around Bideford are some charming villages offering many fascinations to be discovered, and if art and antiquities are your thing, Bideford has its very own art gallery and museum, located on Kingsley Road. The building houses exhibition spaces, museum, craft gallery, workshop, lecture area, gift shop and coffee shop.
