Lovely house in perfect location, with stunning views.

5 of 5
The house is newly renovated and furnished to a very high standard. We had everything we needed for our stay. The master bedroom and ensuite have stunning views out to sea and across the estuary. The double bedroom and bathroom on the second floor also have great views across the estuary. The dedicated off street parking at the rear of the property was very convenient. The house is right in the centre of Appledore and just a few minutes walk from some lovely pubs, restaurant and shops. We enjoyed eating out at the Seagate Hotel in particular. All in all a lovely house in a fantastic location! The owner, Maurice, was very responsive and helpful both prior to booking and throughout our stay. He was very accommodating in rearranging some outside maintenance work they had scheduled to enable us the book that week. He made sure we were ok and had all we needed during our stay, even helping out very quickly when our car broke down!
