Why Suzanne Limbert chose Appledore
When we first drove down into Appledore we just loved the views across the River Torridge to Instow. Walking around Appledore you are taken back in time to a world of sea faring history. The charm of this old fishing port has been retained with its grand Regency buildings along Marine Parade and the old shop fronts along Market Street. Over the years many artists and Crafts people have settled here making it all the more interesting. Appledore Summer Festival in July/August and The Book Festival in late September are great events in the calendar. The coast along here is wonderful too. We love going to Saunton Sands beach and the Hartland Pennisular is stunning. Our guests have visited beaches in Cornwall, not far away. Exmoor is another favourite for horse riding and the Tarka Trail for cycling.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we first stepped into Amber Cottage we could see how amazing it could be. Its character had been retained with large sash windows, beamed ceilings and wood burner for those cosy winter evenings. With its grand proportions you will love spending time here, we do! The master bedroom is decorated with beautiful silk curtains and a Louis 16th super king bed. We have added our love of interesting interiors to give it that feel of something a bit different. Wonderful textiles, quirky furniture and vintage finds. Breakfast in the garden on a summers day is just perfect and when you walk along Marine Parade and see the view across to Instow we know you’ll want to stay! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

We really enjoyed our stay here - Appledore is a quiet, friendly fishing village with lots to offer, as well as being close to towns such as Westward Ho! and Ilfracombe which are well worth exploring. A visit to The Big Sheep is a must for guests with young children.
The cottage itself is extremely well situated - tucked away in one of Appledore's quiet lanes, and a stone's throw from all of the village's amenities.
The cottage is quaint, quirky and clean, and has been stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Thank you for your kind words Matthew, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Amber Cottage and sounds like you had a great time exploring the area. We hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Suzanne
Fantastic location in a fantastic area
Great location to explore the wonderful area of Devon with great area to walk the dog and Relax in the the small pubs and cafes
Cottage was spacious & well equipped
Property was well located & within a minutes walk to the quay.
Sun in the morning up the garden which was a good start to the day eating breakfast.
Only annoying thing that was at the very end of the holiday was the check out time, 10am is a little early as we were squeezed out of the property dead on 10, I think 11 is a bit more flexible!
Thank you for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed the garden, it really is a lovely sun trap and full of bird song. I will look into adjusting the check out time to 11am as you mentioned. Many thanks, Suzanne
We have stayed here 5 times now and this time it was quite dirty.
There’s less and less kitchen equipment every time we go. Just basics like a cafetière and knives that cut would be appreciated.
We are really sorry to hear that the cottage wasn't as you expected. Since you stayed we have made a note of your comments and will attend to the kitchen equipment. We hope you will stay with us again in the future. Best wishes, Suzanne
