Good property in need of some attention

  • 3 of 5

Overall as advertised, it was a good place to travel North Devon from.

Cons: The 'nearby parking' is a lot about 10 min away.No parking attendant. Luckily they have a mobile app to set up long term parking rates. Street parking is practically impossible to find. Keep in mind the "pedestrian walkway' is an uphill walk to the cottage through a very narrow alley. A bit tricky with luggage.

The cottage provided one roll of toilet paper and a mostly empty bottle of dish soap. We had to go out and buy our own. There were towels at least.

The 'romantic fireplace' did not work. Fortunately it was not a romantic vacation as it was a girls trip.

Pros:The free wifi was very much appreciated as it is difficult to get a good signal in Appledore. There was almost no phone signal in the cottage, so I had to go out to the quayside to make phone calls. (nice view, but a bit of a pain).

It was nice to have a kitchen with fridge/stove, but there was nothing to make coffee with (we bought a French Press from a charity shop to use) and the frying pan was in a sad state and everything stuck on to it.

There is an area for a garden, but so overgrown with weeds that it is quite rightly not accessible. It could be so much more though with a little attention and would have been a nice place to enjoy the outdoors.

Overall the place is 'good enough' . Pity, as it could be so much more with a bit more care.
