    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Bosun's Haven is an old rendered stone and timber, master mariner's cottage. It sits on the quayside, with uninterrupted views from the rear bedrooms across the estuary to the pretty village of Instow and the rolling countryside beyond. The village of Appledore has long been a popular retreat with its maze of narrow lanes and quaint, colourful cottages. The front door opens on to the charming Market Street, closed to traffic and punctuated with interesting shops from chandlers to art galleries. The rear gate opens onto the quay sit here or in the bedroom and watch the wide range of craft from huge ocean going ships to small open fishing boats passing by in the ever changing light and tide. Take part in crabbing or jumping off the quay (at high tide!); enjoy an icecream watchin... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014
person found this review helpful

Superb location of this lovely little cottage right on the quayside wedged between two top TripAdvisor Appledore cafe/restaurants. Suited 2 couples very well, with a further bedroom spare. Very well equipped kitchen with everything you could ever need, and very comfortable beds. Very helpful communications with owner beforehand. Only downside was lack of wifi but as the cafe next door had free wifi this wasn't too much of a problem for us. Watch out for the low bedroom door frame on the double bedroom! more
