Torridge House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 4 Appledore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 October 2013

This is our second time staying here with Penny. This is an extremely nice B&B, a relaxed atmosphere and very comfortable. The breakfast as every other poster has mentioned is extremely good, home made bread and conserves, if your lucky you get a jar of marmalade to go home with. Penny the owner is more than happy to chat with you on a variety of subjects and is a super host with great local suggestions to visit or restaurants to eat.
We had two rooms on our first visit both were great all very comfortable and what you want when away from home.
Some individual pieces like furniture and carpets collected from various parts of the world can also be bought. We got some great slippers from Nepal for our 8 month old. All in all a great value friendly place to stay in North Devon!!

My wife and I stayed at Torridge House for three nights in September this year. (2013)
We found the breakfast superb, the bed extremely comfortable and Penny very welcoming and helpful. Appledore is well situated to explore the surrounding area and the town itself was a delight with interesting pubs and restaurants.
Thank you Penny for such and enjoyable stay.

Have just spent two nights in Torridge House. We loved the Blue Room and were so well looked after by Penny who was very welcoming. Breakfast was delicious with eggs from Penny's chickens. It was a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.

All in all, this is the only place to stay if you want quality and relaxation at such a reasonable price .
My husband and I have stayed three or four times now at Torridge House and each time we come back its as enjoyable and relaxing as ever .Penny is a warm and friendly host , she is happy to suggest places to go and nothing is too much trouble . Her breakfasts are exceptional ,cooked full English or continental ,there is such a wide variety of choice . If you are visiting this beautiful part of the world ,I would recommend Torridge House without hesitation.

We had a brilliant stay here after doing a performance at Appledore Book Festival...reckon its up there in the top five best UK B&Bs I've stayed in in 40 years touring theatre...and that's quite a few, most of them forgettable with mean cramped rooms and mediocre breakfasts. Torridge House in Appledore: Outstandingly comfy night, peaceful location, lovely town, beautiful garden, best ever breakfast and the friendliest owner in Penny. Thanks for a great stay.

I stayed here with my mother and our miniature poodle and it was a great success. Penny and her family are warm, welcoming and really pushed the boat out to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The whole house is decorated very tastefully and is filled with interesting and unique decoration and furniture. Really comfy beds. The breakfast was the best I had ever experienced in a B&B, and that is 30 years experience! Thank you Penny.

Had spent hours trawling the internet for a b and b but everything was fully booked until we happened upon this gem. We were so happy just to find a room we didn't think much more about it and had a nice surprise when we arrived. I loved everything about this place. The beds were amazingly comfortable, one of the best nights sleep ever. I loved the decor of the house....very understated but with an artists touch....not sure is the owner is an artist. She made us a wonderful breakfast, fresh pastries, coffee, yogurt, fruit and the full english. All the food was really good quality. Just wished the house was my house....I adored it and the wonderful garden too.
