Excellent cottage in a lovely location
Mrs Williamson September 2020
Our second stay at Poachers, very cosy, comfortable, clean cottage. Lovely location.
Mrs White August 2020
Lovely cottage in a fabulous location- our first visit to Appledore and we fell in love with it??
Mrs Cooper August 2020
Brilliant cottage, some noise from the local pub but that offsets against the great location to everything. Very comfortable cottage. Be aware of the steep stairs though! We eventually got used to them but they were a little steep. My daughter said she wants to live in a cottage like this when she grows up!
Mr Porter July 2020
Poacher's Cottage is a beautiful, homely little place that's very comfortable for 4. Two bathrooms is a real luxury and it is surprisingly spacious generally. Having the Royal George 20 yards away is a real bonus but all of Appledore is delightful. The stairs are steep for older guests but there are railings both sides, so fine with a little care. All in all, a wonderful place to stay and heartily recommended!
Mrs Richards March 2020
Great location in a fabulous setting. Just 30 paces to a wonderful pub but very quiet off a small side street. Well recommended.

Not that we are tv fans and dont like wasting precious time , but for someone who is keen , perhaps tv channels were a bit limited, unless we did not understand the netflix instructiions which we did not manage to get as per instructions.

There's an Amazon Fire Stick at Poachers Cottage which provides lots of choice for guests.It seems that the TV had been inadvertently switched over to the terrestrial channels so some clearer instructions will be provided to prevent any further confusion - thanks for letting us know!

Poachers cottage is a really lovely comfortable cosy place to stay. It’s in an ideal location with a pub and the sea just a few steps from the front door. It was extremely clean and had everything you would need. Our dog loved all of the walks and it was so nice not to have to use the car. We definitely hope to stay again soon. The only downside are the stairs, which were absolutely fine for us but if you were elderly or had mobility problems then, unfortunately, it’s not for you.
Ms Nunney June 2019
Property was very clean on arrival and well-equipped. Nice touch to be greeted with wine, biscuits and milk. Highly recommended. Fantastic location and very friendly neighbours. Overall excellent!
Miss James April 2019
Loved our stay in Appledore in Piachers cottage, the cottage was in a perfect location, was an amazing home from home, great cosy place. Can’t wait to go back
Mrs Hillier April 2019
A really nice cosy and comfortable cottage in a fabulous location! Appledore is a great destination for a quiet break but with enough choice of quality places to eat and drink. We will almost certainly be returning to Poachers Cottage in the future.
Mr Godfrey February 2019
Appledore is a lovely village,the cottage was immaculate and well positioned. Would definitely return

Mrs Ford August 2018
Pretty, comfortable cottage in a quiet location suitable for families with small children. Handy for the beach and local pubs.
Mr Mawson July 2018
Really think you should review the description of the stairs. It wasn't a massive problem for us but we have friends who would really struggle.

Thanks so much for your review. As a traditional Fisherman's Cottage Poachers Cottage does contain many of the typical original period features such as steep cottage stairs as mentioned in the description but we're pleased it wasn't too much of an issue for you. Bryony, Customer Services
Ms Channing June 2018
A pleasant and comfortable stay. Parking in the local car park worked out well and we found Appledore a quiet yet enjoyable place to stay with good quality shops and eateries.
Mr Williams May 2018

Mr Pearce December 2017
A cosy & well located cottage, with decent sized rooms & well equipped kitchen. Lovely welcome touch was the wine & fresh cake which was gratefully received after our journey!
Mrs Siviter December 2017
Great location right by the sea! Perfect for a quick weekend away letting the kids run free on the beach and hours of crabbing!
Ms Winter October 2017
This is a beautiful, snug and well-maintained holiday cottage. Peaceful, very close to the village and lovely walks. I would recommend it to anyone. Appledore is a wonderful village with a real community feel. I would definitely recommend the Market Street Kitchen for ambience, coffee, breakfast, lunch - staff are friendly and helpful, food is of excellent quality and good value for money and they also welcome dogs!
Mrs Read October 2017
The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, warm, close to shops and pubs. We came for a quiet break and we certainly got this. It was our first time in a cottage and Appledore. I would recommend the cottage - we will certainly return.
Ms Cruden September 2017
Wow this really was a hidden gem, from the moment we arrived we fell in love with the cottage and surrounding Appledore. It was great to find a place so friendly and so far unspoilt. Great food and great company. Can't wait to go again, it will be nice to see The Royal George pub up and running.
Mr Docksey June 2017
A very chilled out cottage in a chilled out Location.

Lovely cottage in a great location. Comfortable and welcoming - felt at home really quickly. Great pub 'The Beaver' with good food, entertainment nights and a Wednesday night quiz. Shop/Deli provided all we needed plus some treats - fish, cakes, wine! People really welcoming.

John's deli is excellent in Appledore. The cottage is part of one of original courtyards and has a real fisherman's cottage feel to it.

Compact ex fisherman's cottage tastefully modernised with all mod cons. Super comfy beds! Ideal base for walking or exploring North Devon.
