This is the lovely setting for Tydemans Cottage - at the heart of the historic fishing village of Appledore.
There is a wonderfully cosy sitting-room with French windows out to the patio and garden.
The large kitchen/dining-room - fully equipped and a true home-from-home.
Just to the right of the courtyard are steps up to a little lawned garden - quite a bonus for a cottage in Appledore.
Steps lead up from the courtyard to this lovely fully enclosed garden.
This is such a great place to stay whatever the time of year.
You step into this lovely kitchen with its welcoming farmhouse kitchen table, the door at the far end also opens to the courtyard patio.
Enjoy using the range cooker - though there are plenty of pubs for good food within walking distance if you feel like a treat.
The master bedroom is beautifully designed with calm colours and a very comfortable bed. The en suite shower-room is to the right of the room.
The bedroom has its original Victorian cast iron fireplace as a pretty feature.
Everywhere you look there are cheerful details to welcome you to this lovely coastal cottage.
You will be tempted to have some long lie ins before setting off to explore.
This is the large shower in the en suite shower-room of the master bedroom.
Another view of the en suite shower-room.
More cheerful and welcoming details!
This bedroom is at the front of the cottage - another very comfortable bed with gorgeous bed linens.
The bedroom looks out over the little pedestrian lane that takes you up to the cottage.
Another pretty ornamental original fireplace.
This is the third bedroom overlooking the garden at the back of the cottage. This bedroom can be made up as twins at your request.
All the fabrics and furnishings have been chosen with real care.
Children will love spotting all the little details.
This is the family bathroom on the first floor, offering a bath as well as the fitted shower.
Thick fluffy towels are an extra treat here.
This says it all !
Tydemans Cottage is in fact two cottages converted skilfully into one. This is the view from the back of the fully enclosed garden. A small flight of steps lead up from the courtyard-area.
Enjoy your stay in this gorgeous cottage.
The sandy beach at Appledore is delightful.
John's Deli has a shop in both Appledore and Instow. The Appledore shop also has a lovely cafe. Why not order a picnic hamper for your day on the beach?

Bideford Quay - you can take a boat trip to Lundy Island to see the birdlife.
Beautiful Appledore.

What a lovely cottage in beautiful Appledore. Great location, comfy beds & a quality feel. We had a great week, with lots of sunshine!

This was our first time in Appledore. We loved it! Beautiful setting, decent restaurants and pubs and a fabulous coffee shop (the Cabin). The cottage is just what we hoped for: comfortable, spacious and right in the thick of it. Although there is no parking (access is via a narrow walkway), we parked in the car park in Odun Rd (£16 for the week) and the cottage is a 5 minute walk. One of the biggest plus points is that the beds are super comfy. Bliss! We’d thoroughly recommend it and would definitely return. If you can, grab a meal at the Flame Factory (2 min walk away) and a trip to Clovelly is a must.

The perfect escape, everything you need for an enjoyable break. Definitely be back

Fantastic cottage in the heart of Appledore.

A lovely location and a beautiful cottage with great amenities. Felt like home from home comforts.

My husband and I enjoyed our week at Tydemans cottage very much. It is an old cottage with character and has been beautifully renovated, is very well equipped and very comfortable. The bedrooms are light and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed being in Appledore out of season, it has great charm, some touristy/craft shops and places to eat but sadly only one food shop now. The beach at Westward Ho! which you can walk to (for exercise, not carrying beach gear) from Appledore is an amazing stretch of sand. The ferry to Instow only operates in the summer.

Fabulous cottage in a very central location , easy walk to all amenities. Very good covid precautions and the cottage was clean so no worries there . Stayed in December and the cottage was lovely and warm as centrally heated and has a lovely log burner so super cosy . Beds were really comfy and it was very quiet so a good nights sleep is guaranteed. Appledore is very pretty and makes for a great base to access the rest of the beautiful Devon coast.

It sounds like you had a great cosy stay in a chilly December.. evenings in front of the log burner must have been lovely! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Delightful cottage in a great location

This is a really lovely cottage with everything you could want in a perfect location. We can't recommend it highly enough. Davidsons and Lockyers

Cottage was perfect ,quiet and peaceful but close to restaurants ,cafe,s, shops etc ,will definately stay in one of classic cottage holidays again.

A charming cottage offering clean, comfortable and spacious accommodation. Appledore has a range of interesting shops and galleries and is well placed for exploring the surrounding area. We had a lovely holiday and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both the cottage and location to family and friends.

A lovely cottage, very comfortable. We have already rebooked for next year

Everything added up to a relaxing, trouble free lovely break.

Recommend this cosy cottage, comfy beds,very well appointed, Close to harbour, quiet and charming. Suited us well, 4 adults and a 6 year old.

Had a weeks stay with my family at Tydeman's cottage and we loved it! Quirky, clean, tidy and modern with cute decorative touches made our stay complete. Tucked away from the Main Street/alleyways but with easy access to everything. Would certainly go back in the future ??.

We regularly stay in holiday cottages and have stayed in a great many but Tydeman's cottage is without a doubt, the loveliest cottage we've stayed in - it has everything, location, charm, fully equipped and beautifully decorated...we're just debating booking again for next year!

We love this cottage, it's so warm and cosy with everything you need just on the door step!

Fab cottage in a lovely quiet location but within easy reach of tourist attractions. The overall quality of the fixture and fittings made for a very enjoyable stay and the cottage was very clean. The welcome tray was a welcomed surprise after a long journey. Crabbing at the harbour was great fun and The Coffee Cabin has the best crab sandwich ever. It's fair to say we had a lovely family holiday and would highly recommend this cottage t anyone.

Excellent large cottage, great location.

Tydesman cottage was a real find, as a family with two young children we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, within 5 min walk you can get fresh bread from the local newsagent or a first class meal or pint of real ale from 3 of the local pubs, we have also got a new love...crab fishing off the quay the kids loved it. A very clean well furnished cottage right in the heart of appledore.

A beautiful, homely cottage in a friendly fishing village. Would definitely recommend to others.

Excellent restoration and very tasteful furnishings. As it was a week for the New year we made daily use of the log burner. Family from South East Leicestershire

Light airy and very comfortable cottage in brilliant location

Beautiful, well appointed, spacious cottage, central location, real home from home

Fantastic cottage everything we needed and lovely sun terrace and garden.

This is a beautifully furnished cottage and ideal for a family break.

Without doubt the best holiday accommodation we've ever stayed in. Well located, quiet, comfortable and beautifully furnished and equipped. The owner has paid attention to every detail. Our thanks to all concerned.

A well equipped, pleasantly decorated home.

Everything about this cottage was perfect for our weeks holiday. Thank you

Beautiful cottage in beautiful location, would recommend for families or group of friends.

What a beautiful cottage!! Decorated with style, comfortably furnished and so well equipped for us all (including a 9mth old baby) The location was really quiet, yet we were only a few steps away from the quay with shops and a good choice of restaurants. Plus the best fish and chips I've ever eaten - too good to share with the seagulls! We plan to return earlier next year and have recommended to other family and friends. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday

We have a wonderful stay!

Beautiful cottage, great venue, plenty of space.

As always, Classic Cottages convinced me by providing a first class cottage. This was the very best out of six classic cottages we had until now. Everything was absolutely perfect.Thank you.
