Richmond House, Appledore
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Richmond House is a grand property situated in the quaint village of Appledore, with decadent living areas and beautiful views across the estuary from a number of rooms.
The owners have retained many original features including pine floorboards and a slate fireplace alongside high quality furnishings to give your stay a touch of luxury. The open plan living and dining area is flooded with natural light from large sash windows where you can see glimpses of the estuary.
The split level courtyard area at the back is a perfect sun trap and the ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine after a day of exploring the local area.
Richmond House is the ideal base for those who love the beach. Take a short 3 mile trip to Westward Ho! where you'll find two miles of sandy beach, popular with surfers and families.

Barnstaple lies at the lowest crossing point of the River Taw, 3 miles inland of the river mouth into the Bristol Channel, and is reputed to be the oldest borough in England. It continues to be an important market town for the region and has a lively centre, bustling with cafe's, restaurants and shops – including many high street favourites as well as a wealth of independent traders. Many local products, trades and crafts can be found for sale in the glass and timber-roofed Victorian Pannier Market – voted one of the top 10 best food markets in the UK. Foodies will also love “Butchers Row” – 10 food shops in a Victorian arcade selling the finest local produce.
Bideford was once one of the busiest ports in the country, and is famous as the last place in England where women were hanged for witchcraft! Today Bideford is a quiet port town. One of its most notable landmarks is the 13th Century bridge over the River Torridge – with its 24 spans it is a testament to medieval engineering. A popular day out from Bideford if to catch the ferry across to the wildlife sanctuary that is the Island of Lundy. Bideford is also well known as being the home and inspiration for the author Charles Kingsley , a statue of the author can be found in the town and there is a museum dedicated to him in neighbouring Clovelly.
