  • "Hi , We had a lovely week."

    Brilliant location for where we wanted to visit. The only draw back for my husband were the 30 stairs up to the apartment. However despite that we really enjoyed the comfort.

  • "Lovely well equipped flat."

    There were just us two so can only speak for main bedroom and the bed was very comfortable, if low. The living room had quite a low suite but comfy. The dining table had a super view . The kitchen had everything you need except a couple of dishwasher tablets would have been a nice touch. Bathroom small but functional. Appledore beautiful with a few places to eat not too far away.

  • "Top sail is a lovely apartment in the quaint village of Appledore."

    The apartment overall was fantastic. The only negatives were the mattress in the back bedroom. My 12 year old who can sleep anywhere and was sleeping alone on double bed complained of being uncomfortable. The mattress was very squeaky and springS were close to coming through. Also the oven hadn’t been cleaned which in COVID times put us off using it. If bed was changed we would stay again.

  • "Flat was nice, and in a good condition."

    The only thing I would say is that it could do with having WiFi fitted because there is very little phone signal so very often had no way of contacting anyone or getting online. Other than it’s a nice place
