Accommodation perfect everything one could want in the cottage, parking a little difficult if you have a big car.
On arrival finding cottage no problem, but finding Backfield was difficult, no road names, would have been better if you were directed to track alongside fire station.
Off loading at rear of property was down a sloping path and numerous steps 30/40 yards.fortunately it was fine when we arrived in wet weather could be hazardous, not really suitable for infirm or disabled people.
Wifi reception excellent phone poor to non existent
Lovely cottage in a lovely village. We were there for the village festival and the parade and music were fantastic. Great week.
We really enjoyed our stay in Patchwork Cottage. It is very traditional and quaint, yet beautifully refurbished and maintained. The beds are comfy, the furniture is high quality and the kitchen is very well equipped. Excellent wifi and smart TV (two of them) are provided, along with a games console if that floats your boat. Sara was very prompt with her communications and left us a nice welcome pack.
Nevertheless it might not suit everyone. As stated in the details, the stairs are quite steep, and the garden has a lot of steps. It is only a couple of hundred yards' walk to the Appledore quayside, but 20 or so of those yards are a steep hill. Whilst it is great (and unusual) to have a parking space at an Appledore cottage, be aware that the access to that space is steep and narrow, and the space itself is quite small - our car overhung the neighbour's space and I left a note of my phone number on his car saying to call if it was a problem - I didn't hear from him. I'm not sure if he was a resident or another holiday tenant. If you are a two car household, think about taking your smaller car. When you arrive, you need to carry all your luggage down the garden steps to the house, and back when you leave.
But provided you can cope with those practical issues, it's a lovely cottage. The top level of the garden in particular is a lovely spot on a warm evening, with a great view.
