Good Hotel Guide Review
A relaxed atmosphere wafts through this white-painted 17th-century inn overlooking Torridge estuary, where dogs and muddy boots are welcomed. The airy, simply decorated bedrooms combine nautical hues and artworks with shutters, pale wood. Some have original beams; each has tea- and coffee-making facilities, a flat-screen TV. A family room has a bunk bed for the children. Chef Ben Niell’s seasonal menus feature estuary-caught seafood, with daily-changing fish specials; weekend barbecues in summer months are a major draw – as are the terraces with peachy sunset views. Breakfast brings tasty cooked dishes, local yogurts, fresh fruit – a solid foundation for exploring the narrow cobbled streets of Appledore.
