“The BEST holiday rental - Appledore”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The home is beautifully decorated and were stunned at how well equipped for any possible needs you would have during your stay,from outdoor dining ,to taking the kids to the beach.
Body boards,chairs,bucket and spades,beach shelters! It's all there for your use.
Beautiful little courtyard garden with patio table and umbrella,lovely for a sunny evening.
The home has 3 lovely,clean bedrooms and a huge attic room with twin beds,all made up for our arrival,2 bathrooms again spotless.
I don't think we could think of a scenario that the homeowners haven't planned or catered for,sewing kits,first aid,board games,CDs,a beautifully stocked fully equipped kitchen,including dishwasher and washing machine.
Considering pets are welcome,not on beds or furniture,even they were catered for,spare bowls,treats and even towels! And tbh you would never know there had been an animal in the house.
You pay for any gas used,so take a reading,and the cupboards and fridge has some staple items for your use,just replace if used,lovely touch!
Coffees,teas,biscuits and milk was waiting for us on arrival which was very welcome!
Even the lounge had fresh roses on display,we did check we haven't just walked into someone's home,not a holiday rental!

We will definitely be visiting again and I will be devastated if the cottage isn't available!
I recommend this cottage very highly 10/10 in every aspect.

“Great house, great village, great activities”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed for four days at the Captain's House Appledore. This is a really quaint house that has all of the mod-cons and amenities you could hope for. The house is in the centre of Appledore and near the quay, lanes, craft shops, cafes and pubs. Joe and Jackie, the owners, provide a folder of useful suggestions and there is lots to do in the area. A great place to visit and a wonderful house.

Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Fantastic location & deceptively spacious. Great base for the great outdoors with Westward Ho beach within walking distance & the Tarka Trail only up the road.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a lovely week at The Captain's House, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Stayed there with twin 11 year old daughters and there grandmother. Plenty of space and nice courtyard garden to relax in I would recommend this as an ideal base for a holiday.

Situated just a short walk from the quay where it is easy to park. The cottage was well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. Appledore itself is a very nice little village on the river estuary. There are plenty of Cafe's and a really good Pub that does great food.
