  • "Wow what an incredible property!"

    We had an amazing holiday here with everything on our doorstep - beach, pubs and a deli! The house is small but beautifully furnished and decorated, we felt right at home the moment we walked in. The beds are really comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. The weather was kind and we had amazing walks round to Westward Ho! and Instow. We really recommend this property and will be back ASAP!

    Many thanks for your lovely feedback. We are delighted to hear you had a great holiday in our little cottage and do hope you book again soon. Property Owner

The property

Pepper’s Cottage is a recently renovated fisherman’s cottage situated on the picturesque Irsha Street which runs parallel to the Torridge Estuary, in West Appledore.

Packed with character and charm, Pepper’s Cottage is a great base for up to four guests and a furry friend who are looking to holiday in a beautiful location and access the delights of North Devon such as Westward Ho!, Bideford and Clovelly, to name a few.

Step inside through a small lobby into an open plan living space with a well-equipped, newly fitted bespoke kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting area which boasts a log effect fire and smart TV.

The whole space has underfloor heating for the colder months.

Upstairs at either end of the cute landing are two bedrooms, one with a plush double bed and television, the other with twin beds and a view of the garden.

There is also a shower room with vanity unit and toilet as well as a separate WC, next door.

Step out the back through a stable door onto a small patio area where a large shed is situated for storing beach gear.

Walk up some steps at the side of the cottage and you will reach a pretty south facing patio area with table, chairs and sun umbrella.

Relax here during the day or unwind in the evening, after a busy day of exploration.

Above this is a small lawned area with washing line (if needed) and a sun deck at the top of the garden where you can enjoy spectacular views of the estuary and landscape beyond.

Explore Appledore, where you can stroll along the quaint streets lined with colourful fishermen’s cottages, stop for a pint at The Seagate, or sample delicious seafood at The Royal George.

Take a short drive to the nearby town of Bideford, where you can visit the historic Pannier Market, take a leisurely walk along the scenic Tarka Trail, or hop on a boat trip to Lundy Island for a day of wildlife spotting.

Whilst staying at the cottage, you must go to Northam Burrows Country Park, where there is a wealth of attractions including, golf, birdwatching, walking, and close by is Westward Ho Beach, one of the widest beaches in England.

Pepper's Cottage is a fabulous base for a Devonshire break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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, restaurants, and art galleries. A thriving fishing and trading village since the 14th century, Appledore has been a famous boat-building center 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.
Just four miles from Appledore, straddling the Torridge estuary, is the quaint bustling town of Bideford boasts a medieval bridge, town quay, quaint pannier market, and vibrant shopping area - all well worth a visit. For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks, and other attractions are nearby and the South West coast path passes close by on its way into Cornwall. The beautiful cliff-top fishing village of Clovelly is half an hour by road, and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour. Surf the waves, stroll through pretty villages, wander along the Tarka Trail, visit a famous garden or have some fun at one of the local theme or farm parks – it’s all on the doorstep.
