The West Country region
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 - A tranquil retreat amidst glorious countryside and just 3 miles from the breathtaking North Devon coast and the wide golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! and the attractive old port of Bideford. If it is rambling you are after, there are countless footpaths for you to explore along the coast and inland. The local pub is within 700 yards: it serves good food and has a beer garden with outstanding views of the surrounding countyside.
CYCLE TO - The charming fishing villages of Appledore and Instow, as well as the town of Bideford. Keen cyclists can cycle to Barnstaple and beyond, following the Tarka Trail.
DRIVE TO - The surrounding area has much to offer. Within driving distance is Atlantic Village outlet shopping centre, Tapeley Park, Instow, Appledore, The Big Sheep, Dartington Crystal, Clovelly, Bucks Mills, The Milky Way adventure park and the historic market town of Bideford with its open-air and pannier markets. Just a short hop over the Torridge is the large market town of Barnstaple with all high street conveniences, cinema, theatre, museums, and pannier market. From Barnstaple one is in easy reach of many magnificent North Devon blue-flag beaches including Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, Braunton Burrows and Putsborough all famous surf spots.
