The Apple House was exactly that. This lovely home-from-home has been lovingly converted to offer maximum pleasure for those seeking fun and adventure, along with peace and tranquility.
Located superbly on the waterfront, this charming and spacious bolthole is perfect for two.
The large double bedroom also boasts amazing water views.
With views over the harbour and out to sea, you will never get bored of gazing out of the window or enjoying a spot of tea on the patio. Now imagine the scene when the tide is in!
The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you will need to whip up a romantic meal or perhaps simply breakfast in bed.
A carefully placed breakfast-bar enables you to enjoy the views from the comfort of your kitchen. What a view for your breakfast!
The spacious yet super comfy living-area.
Comfy sofa awaits after a long day of fun and activity.
This cottage has a lovely open plan design.
Looking back at the bed. Doesn't that look inviting!
Large bathroom which is situated right next to the bedroom.
Delightful dining spot.
Downstairs WC.
This is your view as you step through the 'side gate' to the property, which is where the parking instructions will take you to.
The owner has kindly made a fully lockable space for you to store your bikes or any other equipment if you wish.
Only a matter of yards away you will find this very welcoming and charming Devon pub. Great for a spot of pub grub and some local hospitality.

Excellent accommodation: everything you could need on holiday. The owners were most welcoming and the greeting gift added that personal touch. Thank you.

Excellent in every way except for parking problems.

Delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful cottage, beautiful views from window and great location. Loved every minute we were there and would love to stay there again, it was so relaxing.

Excellent cottage for a relaxing holiday and fantastic views

Lovely, comfortable cottage to spend a week in with everything we needed. Great views over the harbour. Two local pubs good. Interesting places to visit... recommend Powderham Castle just up the road. Easy to get to Exeter...we used the Park and Ride. Very enjoyable October break.

Superb luxury cottage with every facility you could ask for. Tremendous quayside location with great views. Ideal for quiet getaway. Two excellent pubs adjacent with good food menu's. Lovely walks along coast in both directions. Excellent local bus and train transport links as well as a nearby ferry across to Exmouth which is a must. Can't fault this property in any way. Simply perfect. Will definitely be coming back.

I loved staying at the Apple House! It was very comfortable and so close to everything. I managed to go for nearly the whole week without using my car which was really relaxing. The view from the window over the little harbour is hypnotic and I loved watching out for the trains. Walking to the ferry and the train station is a hop skip and a jump away. I took my bike and cycled the Exe Valley Way. The nature reserve at Dawlish Warren is beautiful. I felt as though I had done a lot each day and could then come back to the comfort of the Apple House at the end of each adventure.

Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Very close to lots of attractions. Watching life in Cockwood harbour was a real highlight for us.

Very comfortable and clean. Location - small harbour with pub next door - not too busy even in these Covid times. Excellent place to stay and small patio outside was ideal.

We're so delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay at The Apple House and thank you for your lovely comments. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Very comfortable cottage which has been designed very well. Lovely views from the windows and very quiet, even though next to a pub. Enjoyed our visit.

Lovely cottage easy to get about with trains, ferries and buses if you don't want to use your car.

A comfortable home from home in a great location for coastal walks and cycle routes.

Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing break. Location is perfect for walking , cycling and using the ferry to Exmouth and the train to Exeter. Lovely and warm in the cottage too.

A cottage that lent itself to a relaxing holiday, lots of local walks and golf courses within walking distance. Cottage well equipped for cooking as we were reluctant to eat out at this time.

2nd stay and enjoyed it even more. Comfortable and homely - ideal for a couple. Great pubs with great food on the doorstep. The train handy for visiting plenty of the local attractions and lovely walks from the cottage. We will be back.

Lovely Holiday. Our second time here and are looking forward to going back for a third time. The only slight downside is that the Wi-Fi isn't that good, it keeps dropping off, if that's important to you.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Apple House and it's great to hear you had a wonderful time overall, though we're sorry that you had some issues with the WiFi. In some rural and coastal locations WiFi signal can become a little glitchy at times but we'll certainly forward your comments to the owners for their attention. Bryony, Customer Support

The Apple House was spotless, and well equipped with high quality products

A beautiful cottage in good surroundings

Lovely spot, with the harbour view right outside - boats, tides and trains (non- intrusive, in fact a mini excitement!). The cottage itself is very welcoming in every respect - colours, comfortable furnishings, equipment, heating, helpful hosts on hand if needed. Also two pubs serving good food on the doorstep. We plan to return.

This is a lovely cottage in a very picturesque location. Really comfortable, and with everything you might need for a self catering holiday. A perfect base for exploring the area, and there's so much to see and do! Alternatively, so easy to while away the time watching the ever changing harbour, just outside the window.

Apple House is perfect for a couple. It has everything you need for a holiday along with beautiful views.

Super friendly owners, very welcoming. Perfectly located, decorated and maintained. Beautiful and private. Superb pub next door. Highly recommended!

I will really try to be a regular there like a second home

We had a lovely holiday. In particular the village it was situated in, which was uncommercialized. It had two very good pubs both walking distance and a little convenience shop that sold everything.
