About the Owner

Jenny and David have owned Quayside Cottage for 18 months. We went to visit Appledore out of curiosity, after we discovered that David’s dads first job ever, was there. Love at first sight, totally unspoilt, beautiful quaint streets, Galleries, and for us, live music in one of the 6 pubs just about every night of the week. We have spent a lot of time and love making our cottage homely and comfortable. Jenny is a glass artist and there are some lovely examples of her work on display, as well as pictures by local artists. Please use phone or email to contact us.

It has been an absolute joy to stay in Quayside Cottage.It is a faultless, spacious beautiful place where we have felt very comfortable and will be sorry to leave. The owners have refurbished to a high standard, well equipped and still home from home.Being situated so close to The Quay, we were able to to take our coffee and sit watching the boats. We can`t recommend this cottage enough. Diane and Kevin, Staffordshire April 2013.

Perfect Quayside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back having thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Appledore at Quayside Cottage. The cottage is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, not just for the location – you fall out of the door and you’re virtually on Appledore quay – but the way the owner has so thoughtfully created a lovely holiday home. Everything you could possibly want from a holiday home was there and more. We have stayed in some places where there was a collection of odd bits and pieces, four plates, four cups etc, but not with Quayside Cottage, the whole cottage has been equipped with such thought, care, and style. Everything you could want to complement your holiday, a great kitchen, two ample bathrooms, large bed rooms, dishwasher, wash machine, drier and of course internet. We thoroughly recommend this cottage as the place to stay in Appledore, we certainly hope to return sometime soon.

A Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a most enjoyable week at Quayside Cottage. This was our first trip to this particular cottage., but not to Appledore. The location is 'spot on', being so close to everything this charming village has to offer. The accommodation is to a high standard and well equipped, especially the kitchen. The welcome bottle of wine and chocolates were a pleasant surprise! Our three children, aged 15 and 11 year old twins even said they could quite easily move in, which is high accolade in deed! We love Appledore and would love to come to Quayside Cottage again.

We stayed during the Summer Festival weekend and the start of the Regatta festival. There were plenty of things to see and join in with. The children especially enjoyed the quay jumping at night. The locals made us feel so welcome.

Jenny you have a lovely place!

Appledore is the perfect place for relaxing and doing nothing except watching the world go by, or you can go to one of the many festivals - Regatta, Art, and Book. It is also the place that Dave`s dad had his first job ever.
