“Excellent location and experience - a wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

We stayed two nights in Torridge house over the New Year break and what a lovely experience it was! The house itself is very beautiful, tastefully decorated and filled with interesting artwork and furniture. The garden is also very special - large and interesting with an enormous fish-filled pond and sculptures. We were free to roam around with a coffee and even fed the chickens! We really felt at home. We stayed in the blue room, which, like the rest of the house, was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable; the beds/furnishings the most comfortable we have experienced for a B&B. Breakfast was a real treat. We could take our time having a long and leisurely breakfast with huge choice to choose from, from the usual 'full English' to continental. We opted for delicious scrambled eggs and smoked salmon (made from free-range eggs from the chickens in the garden!) home-made breads and jams. Penny was the perfect host, on hand to provide us with anything we needed. It was a lovely experience to sit around a communal table and chat with the other guests. We cannot recommend staying in Torridge house enough - for the experience and location, this B&B is incredible value for money. We loved our time in Appledore and will most definitely be back and staying with Penny again. James & Abby.

This is the third time we've been to Appledore- Torridge House is definitely the best place we've stayed. Penny is a very welcoming and generous host, she made good suggestions of walks and activities, comfy beds and a perfect breakfast! Well worth the drive down from London :)

We have stayed at Torridge House twice now and have had a wonderful stay each time. This little gem is run by the lovely Penny who made us feel right at home - fantastic food - beautiful house - and a stunning coast-side village which we have truly fallen in love with. Thank you Penny yet again - needless to say we will be back!

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.
