An immaculate waterfront cottage with patio garden

The Crab Shell is a beautifully modernised and tastefully furnished holiday cottage in Appledore. Wake up to pretty waterfront views through the bedroom window and watch fishing boat go by from the spacious open-plan living room with woodburner and Smart TV. The gourmet black-and-white kitchen is fully equipped from dishwasher to washer-dryer – everything a family needs for self-catering. Upstairs the cottage has three bright and airy bedrooms including a king with ensuite and two double rooms, one with WC.

Gather for sunset drinks on the cosy outdoor patio with cushioned seating before heading out for a delicious fresh crab dinner or crispy fish and chips. Who knows how many sea captains and boatmen have enjoyed that quiet space over past centuries!

Appledore is just adorable! The charming winding streets leading down to the quay are lined with galleries, cafes and shops. Watch crabbing contests, book a fishing trip or take the ferry across the estuary to Instow with its pretty shops and restaurants. Four miles away, the bustling town of Bideford centres on the old Pannier Market and Quay. Why not book a trip to Lundy Island and see puffins and seals? Closer to home, Westward Ho! has a beautiful four-mile sandy beach, Surf School, rock pools and a saltwater pool.
