Appledore in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... wash over us with a rather nice Chenin Blanc in the Seagate a 17th century inn. So inspired by my first visit that later on we meandered the 1.5 miles from where we were staying and spent a lovely day exploring and that day has sealed my love affair and I am signed up to visit next year for me as a history buff the Elizabethan and Georgian properties were a delight as were the cobbled streets one house to look out for is the Dolls house a tiny little house set back between two cottages all houses painted in lovely seaside colours and Red phone boxes , I truly loved the timeless quality and the tranquillity of Appledore.

Unable to have a holiday this year, some very good friends invited us to holiday in North Devon. Whilst a extremely kind offer I was not as enthusiastic as I could have been as to me a holiday is only a holiday if you take a passport I was to be proved very wrong and all because of Appledore. Appledore is a little fishing village located on the west bank of the River Torridge about 4 miles downstream from Bideford.

We have visited appledore on two ocassions. Appledore is only a small village next to a river estury. In the past appledore was famous for its ship buliding and reapira although most of this is now gone. This is proven by the sight of the empty old dry docks. Upon arrival there are two car parks. The first one is opposite the naval museum on your way down the hill into the village. The second is a large car park next to the slip way. In this car park is a childrens play area and a set of toilets. It also conviently located next to a pub.
