Welcome to our Self catering cottage on the North Devon Coast
We use Mariners Cottage ourselves regularly.
Self-catering is as easy as possible with a small supermarket just along the Quay and a large Safeway in Bideford. Fresh fish is sold from small trawlers on the Quay. There is an excellent tearoom and delicatessen just around the corner in Market Street and for those who do not simply want to exchange one kitchen for another! - there are small restaurants and pubs with bar and restaurant food within a very short walk.
Most of the small streets lead down to the Quay, which provides delightful views across the estuary to Instow, and at which the fishing boats tie up.
Sailing, fishing, water-skiing and wind surfing take place in the bay or estuary; and trips may be made to Lundy Island from Bideford or Ilfracombe. There is good bathing and surfing on the two mile long sandy beach at Westward Ho! (about 1.5 miles away), and there is an indoor pool at nearby Northam.
Bird watching and long walks along the cliffs west of Westward Ho!, and along Northam burrows to the East, are enjoyed by many visitors to the area. There are public Tennis courts at Westward Ho!, and notable golf courses at Westward Ho! (Royal North Devon, 10 minutes away) and Saunton, at which visitors are welcomed.
Appledore makes an excellent centre from which to explore North Devon and Exmoor – it is close to the Tarka trail for cycling and walking.
Bideford, providing a wider range of shops, and Morrisons large supermarket is three miles away.
