The Retreat description

Holiday home
The Retreat is a lovely cottage near the village of Appledore, just four miles from Bideford. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, one twin and a ground floor family bathroom. Also in the cottage is a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting area with an electric fire. Outside is roadside parking and an enclosed courtyard with furniture and a barbecue. Situated next to the River Torridge, The Retreat is a lovely holiday home at any time of the year.

Area
Where the Taw and Torridge rivers meet, sits the delightful quayside village of Appledore, next to the River Torridge. Appledore boasts a small but great range of shops, pubs, guesthouses and art galleries. A thriving fishing and trading village since the 14th century, Appledore has been a famous boat-building centre for many years and the shipyard is still active today. Picturesque Appledore provides a peaceful base from which to explore North Devon, and is close to surf beaches.The Quay is very central to life in the village and it is here you will find many activities including fishing trips, crabbing contests on the quay, and sometimes Morris Dancers. This quaint fishing village has a maze of narrow streets leading to the quay.

Region
Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

We have fallen in love with Appledore and visited many times, twice using this cottage. It is quirky, comfortable with interesting ornaments and decorations. A lovely friendly dog called Remus lives next door and a Robin will take food from your hand in the garden.

My daughter and I have just stayed in this delightful little cottage.(It is very small with low beams and doorways and the kitchen is a tight squeeze so larger/taller folk be warned!) It is well equipped, spotlessly clean and absolutely everything has been thought of, from a salad spinner to children's games and dvds! It is situated in a lovely village with quaint, narrow streets and very welcoming local residents. The cottage is situated on the coastal path from where you can walk to Westward Ho! Just lovely.
