Accommodation for Walkers at Seagate Hotel
Appledore is a small fishing village, busy in
Summer, on the North Devon coast with a long history of sea-farers and
shipbuilding. Shipbuilding is still carried out today in Appledore Shipyards, a
large indoor shipyard now privately owned.The quay is still actively used by
boat owners. This picturesque village stretches along the river, and is
small with attractive walks along the quay and through the cobbled streets, or
onwards towards Bideford or Westward Ho! using the local footpaths and the
South West Coast Path. Once a year the village hosts the Appledore Book
Festival as well as many other locally based events.
In the summer there is a small passenger ferry across from Appledore to Instow on the other side of the River Torridge.
This outstanding hotel has recently been refurbished to its previous splendour thank to its owners, the Hills. As soon as you arrive, you know you are in for a treat. This ten room hotel, bar and restaurant truly offers something for everyone. Whether you require a single, twin, double or family room there is a room to suit your needs, even your doggie companions are welcomed here. Each spacious and airy room is tastefully decorated in a modern and contemporary style and offers en~suite facilities, as well as those little touches which are bound to make you stay like a home from home experience, such as a flatscreen Tv, tea and coffee making trays, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. If this were not enough to keep you in your room the wonderful views will definitely be hard to drag yourself away from. However, once you take a peek into the bar and terraced area in the gardens, and sit down to the evening meal menu it may be just as hard to get you away from the food. After a restful nights sleep you then have the unenviable task of choosing from the breakfast menu, which may just give you another reason to be booking another night here, with so much on offer you may well be looking to book for a second break before you have left from the first. If previous reviews are anything to go by, you will certainly not be the first or last person to do so.
