About the neighbourhood
Appledore itself is a small fishing village that sits at the estuary of the Taw and Torridge river. It has attractive walks along the quay and towards Bideford or Westward Ho! using the footpaths. The quay is actively used by boat owners.

Hidden within its quaint cobbled streets there are a number of interesting art galleries. Appledore is such a busy village it even has its own festivals throughout the year - Visual Arts Festival in May, Regatta Week and Carnival in August and the acclaimed Appledore Book Festival in September.

The village is about 3 miles from Bideford & 10 miles from Barnstaple. There are many attractive areas in the surrounding countryside: Clovelly; the famous picturesque fishing village is 10 miles away. Lundy Island can be visited by ferry from Bideford....
