    “A slight problem when we arrived, the key broke in the lock but we contacted the owner and he arrived within 10 minutes to let us in.”


    The only reason I didn't give "Excellent" on the Cleanliness rating was that some of the knives, forks and spoons in the kitchen drawer were dirty but this was the only fault I could find. We arrived just as the more severe restrictions on the Coronavirus were imposed. All the pubs were closed after the Friday night and this changed the whole mood of the weekend. So we decided to vacate on the Sunday rather than the Monday. This is no refection on the cottage or indeed Appledore itself which looked lovely if it had been open. I have no problem recommending Willets Cottage or Appledore for a long weekend break or longer.

The property

Willets Cottage is a charming terraced cottage located in the village of Appledore, Devon.

With two bedrooms sleeping up to 3 people, this is an ideal destination for a romantic retreat or a small family getaway.

Upon entering the former fisherman’s cottage, you will step into the open-plan space which is filled with a traditional charm.

Within the seating area, there are two cosy sofas with a warming flame-effect electric fire, making it the perfect place to snuggle up during a winter’s evening.

This relaxing space also possesses a TV for rainy days and evening entertainment.

Through to the dining area, which has seating for up to four people.

The galley kitchen features a modern and contemporary design with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, toaster and kettle.

Hidden behind here is the well-designed shower room which comprises a walk-in shower, WC and basin all finished in white to create a clean and fresh feel.

Following the stairs up from the dining area, you will discover the luxurious bedrooms.

One bedroom features a single bed with a stacker bed available for flexibility, while the master bedroom has a king-size double bed and storage space.

The cottage does not have a private garden; however, it is situated off a small courtyard with a bench.

The nearest shop to the cottage can be located via the breath-taking coastal path, taking you just 10 minutes to walk to and the closest pub is a mere 5-minute walk away.

To fill your days whilst visiting Bideford, you can visit the Northam Burrows Country Park, which is only a 5-minute drive from the cottage or for a day’s adventure you can explore Saunton Sands, a sandy beach which is a 50-minute drive away from the cottage.
