  • "A lovely well furnished cottage in a great location on the sea wall."

    Although it has three bedrooms, we think it is more enjoyable for two or three people due to the quaintness and size of some of the rooms. We look forward to our next visit!

  • "We had a lovely week at Mariners Cottage, it is a delightful property, beautiful garden and views."

    The decor of the cottage is bright and airy, with everything you need for a stress free break. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the sitting area upstairs watching the sun set. The owners were very helpful and quick to respond to queries, thank you very much for sharing your beautiful property!

  • "WOW, just WOW."

    We had a wonderful weeks stay in this cottage. Everything we needed was provided. The cottage was spotless and had a real homely feel to it. The view from the back garden was amazing, watching the boats and sunsets and sunrises. We were blessed with beautiful weather. We visisted other local places, Barnstaple, Bideford and Ilfracombe. If you are thinking of booking to stay here I suggest you do it quickly. I would hate for soneone to miss out on such a truly amazing cottage.

  • "Gorgeous house and garden - the property exceeded all our expectations."

    The quality of the whole house was above any rental we have stayed in and will hopefully be returning as soon as we can! Cannot recommend this property enough - location, style, outside space, cleanliness and comfort were all above excellent!!

  • "Mariners Cottage is idyllic with wonderful views across the estuary."

    It’s absolutely perfect for 4-5 adults / older children. It’s very comfortable and good living space (it’s like a tarsus) where you can chill and enjoy the views. Appledore is a small unspilt town and isn’t commercialised at all … but has enough pubs / restaurants to enjoy eating out whilst there.
