TRINITY COTTAGE. Charming historic cottage just off the Quay in Appledore.

Located in: Appledore
Trinity Cottage is charming old lighthouse keepers cottage in a fantastic location in the heart of Appledore. Situated on the historic Market Street, it is surrounded with cafes, art galleries, pubs, shops and restaurants, and possesses views at the rear of the property over the Old Buoy Store to the Quay front. The Cottage is just over a mile away from the long, sandy, surfing beach at Westward Ho!

Trinity Cottage’s spacious open plan sitting/dining area contains a wood burner, TV, DVD, Hi-Fi with Bluetooth, board games, jigsaw puzzles and books to provide the perfect environment for all-year-round relaxation. This leads through to a modern and well equipped kitchen and bathroom with underfloor heating. Appliances include: a cooker, fridge with small freezer compartment, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Outside there is a lovely enclosed walled courtyard with seating and barbecue - a real suntrap! A side access gate leading towards the quay makes it ideal for storing bikes and surf boards.

The accommodation offers 2 bedrooms: 1 double with lovely views of the Quay front and over the estuary to Instow and 1 twin overlooking the historic Market Street. Bed linen, towels and electric heating are included. Dogs are allows for a fee of £35 per dog. Cots and high chairs can be supplied at an additional fee.

Appledore is a charming fishing village in North Devon, a maze of quaint narrow streets and chocolate box fisherman’s cottages with an abundance of galleries, craft shops, family friendly pubs, restaurants, shops and even a Maritime Museum. There is always something to do in Appledore; during the year there are many events such as the Appledore Regatta, the Carnival, the Mini Rally, the Literary Book Fair or the highly regarded Arts Fair. The village is steeped in history that can be traced back to the times of the Saxon’s or Viking raiders who, led by Hubba the Dane, were defeated here in the Battle of Bloody Corner circa 878AD. A plaque to the battle is visible between Appledore and Northam near the indoor swimming pool. Later on, in Elizabethan times, Appledore was one of the largest importers of tobacco so there are many tales of smugglers! To learn more you can even take one of the free historic tours organised by Docton Court.
The cottage is situated just off the Quay: a central focus of the village. It is here that you will find many activities occurring including fishing trips, crabbing, sometimes even performances from the local Morris dancers or the Appledore Band. Alternatively, you could choose to watch out for the sailing races, rowing fours, fishing trawlers or even the occasional ship whilst having finger licking fish and chips or an infamous Hocking’s ice cream locally made in Appledore.
Johns of Appledore caters for most of food and drink requirements, including a delicatessen counter and many locally produced foods. However, if you require a larger supermarket you will find Morrison’s, ASDA, Aldi and Lidl in the nearby town of Bideford. Travelling slightly further to Barnstable you will find most high street stores, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and even an M&S.
There are many pubs and restaurants in Appledore most of which are dog and children friendly. The Seagate is a very popular gastro pub (booking recommended), or try a pint and bite to eat overlooking the estuary at the Beaver Inn; often with live bands. The Champ also has lively bands and the option to ‘build your own burger’. The Royal George and The Coach and Horses are currently being refurbished but opening soon. For something a little more special try Bensons for fish or The Flame Factory for excellent freshly made pizzas but BOOK in advance of your holiday. There are two popular fish and chip shops in Appledore: Sylvestas and The Royal Place. Both offer take away, however, the Royal Place caters for eat-in dining or allows you to eat your fish at The Royal pub opposite (provided you are buying a drink there).

Parking is situated up and down the Quay front and is free at all times. If you cannot manage to park nearer the cottage, a large car park is situated 100 yards down the road. Moreover, there is a large slip way located in this car park which is ideal if you have your own boat.
Appledore is situated at the mouth of the Torridge Estuary. A costal path from the end of the village by the lifeboat station will take you across the 600 acres of Braunton Burrows Country Park with the oldest golf links in the country, to the golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! Ideal for surfing and family beach trips with life guard designated areas. The Braunton Burrows visitor centre will happily explain the different local fish, shells, crabs, birds you are likely to discover. They often hold ‘exploring mornings’ for children during the holidays e.g. at the rock pools. So it may be worth popping in to find out.
For older children (and adults) you may like to arrange a day or half day at Skern Lodge, which is located on the edge of Appledore. Fully geared up for sailing, surfing, kayaking, abseiling and much more. It is worth booking before you arrive to avoid disappointment. If children are over a certain age you can leave them there for the day, they will even supply packed lunches on request. Other popular activity venues are The Milky Way and The Big Sheep.
At the end of Westward Ho! Beach is the seaside resort of the same name. Immortalised by Charles Kingsley’s book it is a lively town with a promenade and amusements. From the far end of Westward Ho! a costal path takes you all the way to Cornwall (not to be done in a day!) If you did this you would encounter the beautiful views from the cliffs across to Lundy Island. You would come across little jewels like the village of Bucks Mills or Clovelly, a picturesque fishing village, which is a delight to explore with its steep cobbled streets leading down to a beautiful harbour. The heritage coastline continues to Hartland which is renowned for its steep rugged cliffs and many a shipwreck tale!
During the peak season there is a ferry going over to Instow (tide permitting) and in nearby Bideford you can hire bikes for the day or half day to explore the Tarka Trail - a disused railway line with wonderful views over the water leading all the way to Barnstable.
