About Adele Bailey

We are a family with two children, we have lived in the area for 18 years. We have downsized our holiday let from a huge 5 bed farmhouse to this lovely 2 bed Fishermans cottage.

Why Adele Bailey chose Appledore

Appledore is our favourite place in North Devon, we have enjoyed visiting the village regularly and were delighted to get the opportunity to buy a cottage in such a super location. Although we live only a few miles away, even we feel like we're on holiday when we spend the night in Appledore.

A quaint fisherman's cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here the cottage is very quaint and very clean. Everything you need and bed very comfy. Parking area great but very narrow lane leading to it. Also very steep steps at the back of the cottage and also inside but is a fisherman's cottage after all. Adele most helpfull and loved the Devon cream tea she left for our arrival. Cottage all within walking distance to sea front pubs and shops. Also very good local.bus service. Would definately go back.

Lovely little cottage, super little village

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay here, the cottage is tastefully renovated to a modern standard whilst maintaining its character, it is cosy and has lovely views from the front bedroom window. It is a very short walk to the village which has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The cottage was clean and welcoming, the little BBQ area was a real suntrap we loved it here.

Beautiful quaint cottage

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week. The cottage was beautiful and just a short stroll to the harbour, shops and cafes. We would recommend the Tarka trail which we did twice! To fremington one day then Torrington the next time. Spent most of he time on the beach at westward Ho.

The drive way is narrow as are a lot of the streets in Devon. The stairs were steep but it was an old fishermans cottage. The only problem we did have was how to use the washing machine!

A big thank you to Adele for the cream tea on arrival.

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this cottage as a couple during a summer break in 2016. All the appliances and facilities you need and very clean and well maintained. Good views of the quay and estuary. Great base for exploring the locality and we went to Clovelly, Hartford, Bude, Saunton and Instow. Cottage close to the seafront, local shops and pubs etc. Lots to do in all weather's.

The parking space is a little tricky to manoeuvre into so I would recommend bringing a small car.

Note that the steps down into the courtyard and within the house are quite steep so consider this if you have mobility problems.

All all we can recommend the property and we had a great time.

The extensive Blue Flag beach at Westward Ho! is approximately 2 miles away. The sandy beach at Instow is directly across the estuary from Appledore with a charming and regular 'ferry' service. The well known sandy surfing beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands are within easy reach by car.


Bristol is approx a two hour drive. Car is recommended but not essential as there are good transport links and the cottage is within easy walking distance to the village centre and good bus service.


Appledore seafront only a few minutes walk away. Bideford 3 miles (with Atlantic Village Retail Outlet), From Bideford you can take a ferry to Lundy island. Barnstaple 10.

The Milky Way and The Big Sheep (indoor activities for children and adults for rainy days) just 10-15 minutes drive away. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks are within an hours drive.

Further Details:

Good local shop/Post Office in the village. Appledore is well known for its craft and picture galleries and shops. There is a good selection of family friendly pubs and eating places. The nearby port of Bideford has banks, supermarket, petrol stations, etc. Trips to Lundy depart from here and Ilfracombe.
