About Pear Tree

Pear Tree Cottage is in a fantastic location in Appledore, a short stroll from shops, cafes, pubs and other amenities and within easy reach of Westward Ho! beach. Though it's wonderfully convenient for everything you could look for in a self-catering holiday in Devon, it's peaceful and quiet, being tucked away in courtyard away from any noise and bustle, giving you the best of both. The dog-friendly cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms. It is perfect for couples and families but could also work well for friends who are happy to share a bathroom.

Appledore is an attractive fishing village in a beautiful spot where the Torridge and the Taw Rivers converge and empty into the ocean. The 620-mile South West Coastal Path gives good access to panoramic views, with the stretch between Appledore and Northam Burrows providing a good flavour of the area. Along the 6.5 mile route, you will pass the largest covered shipyard in Europe, and the site of a huge battle where over 1,000 Viking invaders, including Hubba the Dane, were killed in 878. Once you've explored Appledore's pretty twisting lanes, take the seasonal ferry across the estuary to Instow to explore further.

There are beaches galore around Appledore, including Westward Ho! and Saunton Sands. Both have Blue Flag status and are popular for surfing, kiteboarding and paddle boarding, with lessons and equipment hire available. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor are under an hour's drive, providing a wide variety of footpaths, bridleways and mountain bike trails to suit all abilities. Work up an appetite sailing, kayaking, coasteering, tackling a high ropes course, or quad biking. Local attractions include The Big Sheep, country houses such as Tapeley, and the North Devon Maritime Museum. Spend a relaxed few hours shopping and having lunch in Barnstaple, or explore pretty towns and villages that include Bideford and Clovelly.

Pear Tree Cottage's central location means that you can plan a holiday full of whatever it is that you and your family enjoy doing. The cottage is available for bookings all year round with short breaks offered off-peak.
