All that the pretty village of Appledore has to offer is just a short walk away, including the shops, eateries, and the pretty village quay, from where visitors are able to choose from a number of fun and interesting boat trips, or take the ferry across to the nearby village of Instow, with its beach and yacht club. Just a few miles down-river is the harbour town of Bideford, where independent boutiques, treasure-trove antique shops, and restaurants line the narrow, cobbled streets.
