This 200-year old Grade II listed cottage is located in the traditional fishing village of Appledore, situated on the estuary of the River Torridge, offering a wonderful base for a restful break.

This property is located in the pretty fishing village of Appledore, which still has a thriving community of fishermen, as is evidenced by the boats bobbing in the attractive village quay. For those who are looking for a relaxing holiday, the village itself makes a great place to take a break from the stresses of everyday life, with its interesting shops and tempting eateries all within strolling distance of the property. The village quay, too, is just a short walk away, and in the summer months a ferry runs across the estuary to the neighbouring village of Instow where visitors will find a yacht club and beach. Just two miles from the property, Westward Ho! Boasts a beautiful sandy beach.

This traditional fishermen’s cottage makes for a delightful place to stay, with its pretty original features. The property’s lounge has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and offers a coal-effect gas fire, TV, and DVD, which can all be enjoyed from the comfortable seating. The neighbouring room, the kitchen/diner, has a dining table seating four, a wood burner-effect gas fire, and is equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, washer/dryer, and handy USB charging points. Steep cottage style stairs lead to the first-floor accommodation where there are two bedrooms. The first of these is a pretty double room, whilst the second room is a twin with 2’6” beds which can be put together to make one standard height single. There is a shower room with WC.

Outside there is a small courtyard with an outside WC. As is typical in the village, there is no parking attached to the property, but there is roadside parking available close by, or guests may prefer to use local public car parks.

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

The cottage is an old historic fishermans cottage very close to the quay. Appledore has a very scenic position on the estuary with wonderful views. The cottage is very cosy and has been modernised to a high standard. There is an excellent shower and the kitchen is very well equipped. A bottle of wine and a box of biscuits was a particularly welcomeRead more, thoughtful touch when we arrived. There was a high standard of cleanliness, particularly important right now, with sanitiser provided in the hall. Hide

We had a lovely time at Tillermans Cottage. The owner of the cottage had been very kind putting up a Christmas tree with lights as well as leaving some Christmas treats as we stayed over the Christmas period. The cottage is cosy and felt like home from home. The kitchen equipment was plentiful. We had everything we needed. Crisp white bed linen andRead more warm fluffy towels. WiFi provided and a small tv for wet days as well as board games. Perfect. Hide

The cottage is in a very central location in Appledore. You can park very close by to unload, but there's no parking on site. The heating & water system is awesome, with instant very hot water and a shower that massages the muscles! The cottage made for a great base for us as a family to explore North Devon.

Tillerman cottage is in a very good location with pubs and excellent chip shops within walking distance. The Quay is reached down a little street and you are looking out over the estuary. There were only 2 of us in this quaint little cottage which had maintained all its charms. It is compact but there is everything you could want on a self cateringRead more holiday break. It is spotlessly clean ,warm and comfortable. I really enjoyed staying there Hide
