This delightful and spacious detached cottage provides the perfect getaway location for two. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard, The Apple House offers you a wonderful waterside spot. Located a stone's throw from the beautiful Exe estuary, dining al fresco on your private and secluded patio is a really special experience. With uninterrupted views over the harbour, the location of this charming property is everything you could want. The Apple House is nestled in the charming village of Cockwood, which boasts two waterfront pubs only a short stroll from the property. This fantastic location offers you a whole range of activity within striking distance. Hot summer days can be spent on the sandy beach at Dawlish Warren, or perhaps take a ferry ride over to the popular seaside town of Exmouth, where a great day out awaits. Take a short train journey into the centre of the Cathedral City of Exeter, where you can enjoy a spot of shopping and fine dining; definitely the way to spend quality holiday time! However should you need extra guidance on 'what's on' in the area, the owners of The Apple House also live on Harbour Way and are only too happy to help with any requirements you may have.
There really is so much to do in all directions from this fabulous location. Should you seek something a little more adventurous, there are a range of excellent water sports available nearby, along with numerous cycle trails at your disposable; what a great way to stay in shape on holiday! (Please feel welcome to bring your bikes as storage space is available). For a more relaxing day out, within a short car drive you have the Dawlish Warren golf club. Situated on the spit of land in the mouth of the Exe estuary, the course provides a challenge to golfers of all abilities. It has 18 of the finest greens in the south west and breathtaking views to make your day memorable. For any bird and nature lovers, Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve is a very special place indeed. This hive of activity is an area of grassland, sand dunes, mudflats and information centres, and is one of the most important places for wildfowl and wading birds in the whole of the south west. Thousands of birds come to feed on migration, or to spend the winter here. The dunes and grassland have a host of special plants, with over 600 different types of flowering plants being recorded on the warren. This varied reserve has many different habitats including salt marshes, fresh water ponds, wet meadows and woodland. This beautiful house coupled with its amazing location makes for an idyllic holiday formula; what are you waiting for?
