The property

Seashell Sands is a beautifully presented cottage located on the outskirts of the quaint fishing village of Appledore.

The ideal escape to the North Devon Coast which boasts spectacular beaches and an abundance to see and do.

This lovely property sleeps two people, having a tastefully decorated master bedroom with a sumptuous double bed.

You'll also find a bathroom for you to freshen up in before you set off on your adventures.

Downstairs there is a spacious lounge diner with French doors leading to the private patio and rear garden to enjoy the sunshine with an ice-cold beverage.

Show off your culinary expertise in the kitchen, and savour the meals you make around the dining table.

For a quiet evening in, snuggle up on the sofa with your loved one and watch your favourite shows and movies.

The quaint cobbled-street village of Appledore is rich in history, centred around shipbuilding and smuggler runs.

The North Devon Maritime Museum is well worth a visit, or try your hand at crab fishing on the Quay where many traditional fishing boats bob alongside yachts and pleasure boats offering trips across, or along the estuary.

A trip to the pretty 17th-century village of Instow is a must with a variety of pubs and restaurants to sample the wide range of locally sourced products and seafood.

The Arts and Crafts and local shops will give the option to find unique pieces, the Appledore Crafts Company is also well worth a visit.

For rolling waves and a huge stretch of beach, visit Westward Ho! where you can surf or simply make castles in the sand, or perhaps take a boat trip from Bideford to the nature reserve delight of Lundy Island.

There are countless North Devon visits to be made, the traffic-free Tarka trail is very popular with cyclists and walkers, allowing the opportunity to enjoy the scenic Devon countryside.

Garden and countryside lovers will enjoy the stunning RHS Rosemoor or Tapeley Gardens, and further afield Exmoor National Park offers miles of walking, cycling or horse riding over the rolling landscape with some great country pubs for refreshment.

Finish off your holiday with a souvenir for a loved one, or treat yourself to something special at Dartington Crystal, the only remaining glass-making factory in the UK.

Enjoy a simply stunning holiday at Seashell Sands.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Bideford 4 miles;

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.
