North Devon - The Streets of Appledore


Appledore is a charming fishing village situated in North Devon, smack bang in between Bideford and Westward Ho! It is a tiny village that sits on a hillside overlooking the Torridge estuary and believe me when I say it is a truly gorgeous place to visit. The tiny, winding back streets are great for exploring, it's small Pockets full of colour will have you curious at every twist and turn. Pretty alleyways and cobbled stairways invite you to delve in deeper and deeper.

Follow the teeny roads until you find Irsha street, it is particularly pretty and even boasts a miniature pink house named 'The Dolls House' which is wedged in between two cottages. The kids love it and yearn to take a peek inside. Keep walking and you will stumble across The Beaver Inn, stop here for a pint and some real Devonshire home cooking and take in the stunning panoramic estuary views. Not to be missed. Be sure to visit St Mary's Church, it sits in the Quay and is lovely spot to wander around the grounds. If you climb the grassy stairway you will find a bench with amazing views across the estuary.











Appledore is a very special place, I urge you to spend a day here if you are down that way or even better rent a cottage with a sea view in Irsha Street. An experience you will never forget.

  1. What gorgeous coloured houses. I adore exploring little streets like this on holiday, I'd rather mooch around like that than go to a tourist attraction.
