Enjoy a stay in the bustling port and market town of Bideford, a stone's throw from Devon's amazing Atlantic beaches.

Bideford's tree-lined quayside is a wonderful place to linger, watching cargo ships being loaded and fishermen land their catch. Or hop on a pleasure boat to Lundy Island.

Mooch about the narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and pubs. Fill your Bideford cottage's fridge with local delicacies at the pannier market and find a keepsake at Butchers' Row, housing a collection of art and gift shops. Look out for the merchants' houses on Bridgeland Street and the statue of Charles Kingsley, the town's famous literary resident.

One of the town's key architectural highlights is the 24-arch Bideford Long Bridge, originally built of oak during medieval times - learn about its transformation through the ages at the Burton Art Gallery. And if you fancy a Bideford cottage holiday over New Year, don't fancy dress and meet fellow partygoers here at midnight!

During summer, enjoy a tour of the Kathleen & May, a stunning triple-masted sailing schooner. There's also a visitor centre displaying memorabilia on Bideford's fascinating maritime past, as well as a regatta every September. If you fancy learning a bit more about the area's seaside heritage then the North Devon Maritime Museum just up the road in Appledore is the place for you!
