The pleasure of breakfast on the balcony, in the sun, on 2 mornings more than compensated, however. A constantly changing view is a pleasure. The Penthouse was spotlessly clean; there is everything you could need in the kitchen which is a change, from experience! Dishwasher a bonus..... Lovely BIG towels, thank you, & quality bed linen, strong showers. Loved John's deli & cafe, the Coffee Cabin, (who do takeaways during office hours) & had a delicious meal at The Seagate, but not as impressed with The Boathouse seafood restaurant in Instow, despite having been recommended it by other people staying locally. Also found Marwood Gardens a delight, yummy food., virtually every plane/tree labelled (!), Docton Mill gardens a tranquil end to an afternoon with a delicious cream tea & Hartland Abbey a chance to stretch legs & enjoy the gardens there, too. We really enjoyed our stay & would thoroughly recommend it to any future holidaymakers.

The bathroom, en suite and kitchen were spotlessly clean and it was difficult to believe the bathrooms had not been refitted just a week ago. The kitchen was a joy to work in. The frontage onto the street belies the size of the accommodation. There are books everywhere for every possible taste and we were particularly impressed by the range of pictures, prints and photographs - so much so that we tracked down one of the artists and went and bought one as a reminder of our stay. Our holiday in late March, meant the village was quiet and it was possible to sit on the patio and hear nothing but the waves on the rocks below. When dusk fell however the cottage was warm and cozy. Appledore is a delightful and interesting old town and everyone was extremely friendly.

It was perfect for the two of us with a separate bathroom and an en-suite. Description on the web site is accurate and the cottage was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Its lovely and light in the kitchen dining and sitting areas, and the master bedroom is very pretty. I haven't given Abigail's a 5 star rating for 2 reasons:- 1. The staircase up to the first floor is very steep which Mum struggled with, this is something to bear in mind if you are considering renting with an elderly friend or relative. 2. There are only 3 places to eat in Northam. A Chinese take away, a very good fish & chip shop (take away) and the excellent Memories if you can get a table ! For a wider choice you can walk to Appledore or travel to Barnstaple or Bideford, all of these local towns are accessible by a very frequent bus service.
