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 !
Looking out across the estuary from Appledore Quay, just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage.
The coastal village of Instow faces Appledore - there is a little passenger ferry to take you back and forth.
This is a view of Appledore from the Instow side of the estuary.
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.
Relax and unwind in this special location.
Bideford Quay - you can take a boat trip to Lundy Island to see the birdlife.
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?
Enjoy your stay in this gorgeous cottage.
Take the seasonal passenger ferry across to  Instow where there are miles of sandy beach  to walk along at low tide.
North Devon is famous for its incredible sandy beaches - perfect for surfing and walking.

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 ??.

May 2017

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!

April 2017

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

October 2016

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.

September 2016

Excellent large cottage, great location.

April 2016

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.

August 2014

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
