  • Ideal couple’s getaway to North Devon coast
  • Views from your own private snug room of the Torridge and Taw estuary, Crow Point and Northam Burrows
  • A few miles from local beaches at Westward Ho!, Northam Burrows and Instow
Property code: MASTR

Traditional terraced cottage situated on a quiet lane in the estuary front village of Appledore in North Devon, and just two miles from the beach in the neighbouring village of Instow.

Appledore, is where boats bob in the town’s quay, and where there are range of tempting eateries to choose from. In the summer months, a ferry runs across the estuary to the village of Instow, home to a yacht club and a pleasant partially sandy beach, alternatively it is just a short drive away. A larger beach, the two-mile wide stretch of sand at Westward Ho! is just three miles away, whilst the harbour town of Bideford, with its charming cobbled streets, well regarded restaurants, and treasure trove of shops lies just four miles to the south.

As soon as guests enter this property, they will immediately get a feel for how homely and welcoming the cottage feels. The lounge/diner perfectly demonstrates this, with exposed beams, wood burner, wooden floor and comfortable seating. The Freeview TV/DVD, DAB radio, and Bluetooth speaker means that guests can happily relax and enjoy cosy nights in, after long days of exploring. The kitchen is located just off the lounge/diner, and is equipped with an oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and a washer/dryer, giving guests the choice of whether they want to cook or go out and enjoy the village’s restaurants and pubs. There is a steep set of open-tread stairs which lead from the ground floor up to the first floor accommodation. Here, they will find a lovely double room with feature fireplace. There is also a snug room on the first floor, which offers guests a fantastic place to sit back with a book and enjoy this room’s stunning views across the estuary and out to sea. There is a shower room with shower and WC.

As is typical in the village, there is no parking attached to the property, but there is roadside parking available nearby.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Our cottage was outstanding. It was quite posh yet it felt very homely. The facilities were excellent. It is close to the local shops and an excellent fish and chip shop. Meeting street is a bit steep.

Having visited Appledore before we were aware of the car parking restrictions so pre purchased a tourist permit for Churchfields car park. Very convenient location on Irsha street for shops/pubs/restraints. The info warns that the stairs are steep - they are! So be aware & a challenge even for someone who is reasonably fit & able.

We wanted a short break in a quiet location not too far from home. This is exactly what we got at Master Mariner. Appledore is a real gem and views from the upstairs snug of the estuary were a real treat. Parking was not an issue and we stayed in the village sampling the many excellent places to eat and drink.

The cottage was ideal for what we wanted and perfectly located. It is just the right size for a couple. The chairs in the snug could do with being more comfortable for more snugging on rainy days. I would happily return

We had a lovely last minute break at the Master Mariner. The cottage is well equipped and well looked after. Entry was easy and directions etc accurate. It's a cosy hideaway with nice views of the estuary from the snug. Appledore is a lovely fishing town but busy in the summer as you'd expect. Unloading luggage can be tricky as the cottage is on a Read morenarrow street which you have to block to stop outside. Foot traffic on road is very close and can be noisy in the evenings. Hide
