4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Appledore, Devon, England
Our 200-year old fishermen's cottage has been lovingly restored, retaining many period features including exposed beams and historical fireplaces. Comfortably furnished and fully equipped, our coastal retreat is endowed with boundless old world charm, yet offers every modern convenience. Just a stone's throw from the slipway leading to the beach - listen to the sound of the waves lapping up the slipway as you drift off to sleep in this delightful cottage.

Self-Catering Accomodation
Well equipped kitchen with separate dining room and comfortable sitting room. Three spacious bedrooms on the first floor (one with en suite) plus family bathroom, and one optional ground floor bedroom (with en suite) makes Catboat Cottage a versatile holiday haven.

Weekly bookings for 6 guests or less are automatically discounted. This g...

person found this review helpful

Catboat is a beautiful cottage in the picturesque village of Appledore. I stayed here for just under a week with some friends and we found the stay to be extremely pleasant. I would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet get away close to the seaside. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants located nearby, and scenic walks through the countryside to be found. Would definitely go back!

Management response:

Thank you for your review Dominic, I'm delighted that you enjoyed our cottage and discovered the delights of Appledore. We look forward to welcoming you back!

About the neighbourhood
Despite its peaceful location, the cottage is only minutes away from local amenities, including a delicatessen, several charming pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and unique shops. A great number of local artists exhibit and sell their work from the local craft shops or their own homes. Appledore's delightful alleys and lanes reveal a rich heritage and lively cultural scene and its beach is famed for its crab fishing and watersports. It is also ideally located for exploring North Devon which offers something for all ages whether larger family groups of couples alike.
Getting around
Ideally a car is recommended if you wish to explore North Devon. However, many guests choose to 'park up' in Appledore on arrival and don't get back into a car until they leave!
There is a great local bus service that runs into Bideford, and from there to Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and Exeter.
Trains also run from Barnstaple & Exeter which extend onto the greater railway network.
