The Boathouse, a character, three/four bedroom holiday home in Appledore, North Devon. The newly rennovated holiday let can comfortably accommodate 6-8 guests and is open all year round.
The waterfront house is beautifully positioned overlooking the old boatyard and estuary. It benefits from its own garage parking for two cars, which is a rarity in Appledore, and a private roof terrace. Within the dog-friendly house there is an open plan living area with views over the estuary, a master bedroom with zip and link beds and en-suite shower room, a twin with two singles and a compact double with en-suite cloakroom, there is also a family bathroom with shower over bath. In the basement is the large cinema room, which also acts as the fourth bedroom with two full single beds located here alongside an en-suite shower room.
The Boathouse is located in one of North Devon’s most popular seaside villages, Appledore. This quirky village that lies alongside the estuary where the River Torridge and River Taw meet is famous for its narrow winding streets and its connections to both fishing and boats. Within the village there are some excellent places to enjoy a meal, a wonderful deli and much more. In the peak season take advantage of the small boat that takes visitors across the estuary to the neighbouring village of Instow, which has a dog-friendly beach backed by sand dunes and some very good pubs.
Further afield, guests can travel to Bideford, where MS Oldenburg sets sail for Lundy Island, Westward Ho! with its blue flag beach and Clovelly where visitors can stroll along the cobbled streets to a beautiful harbour. Exmoor and Dartmoor are also within easy reach, as are many of North Devon’s family-friendly attractions.
