West Quay House stands proudly just ten yards from the water's edge and offers two self contained apartments on the ground and first floors - a perfect base for a relaxing holiday in beautiful North Devon.
Nearly all of the village is a conservation area and it has, over the years, attracted many artists, and today a number of galleries display local work.

A second staircase gives access to a beautiful lounge with quite superb views of the sea and old Appledore. An ideal place to relax in our comfortable leather armchairs and watch the world go by.
Appledore has been a thriving port since the 14th century and is full of intriguing history initially intertwined with the fishing industry. Many hours can be spent exploring its narrow streets and cobbled courtyards.
Indeed the village and the adjoining estuary have attracted the attention of several film makers, including Walt Disney who made 'Treasure Island' here. Close by is the South West Coastal path and superb sandy beaches being ideal for swimming, surfing or the age old art of sand castle constiriction. Alternatively, horse riding or the North Devon Golf Club might be more appealing.
A unique little fishing village where the western shore of Devon's golden coast meets the Atlantic Ocean, Appledore must rank amongst the most appealing and picturesque of Britain's coastal villages.
