Appledown House-Appledown Cottage Holiday Let (formerly Appledown House Country Bed and Breakfast) is set in a lovely rural location in the heart of the Devon countryside, just about as far away from the every day stresses and strains of your normal life as you want to be, yet less than 10 minutes drive from Tavistock and Dartmoor. Well-behaved children are most welcome.
The detached, ground floor cottage comprises twin/superking bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower), sitting room with sofabed (with jack n jill access to the bathroom), well-equipped kitchen and small conservatory dining area with fabulous views across the rolling Devon countryside. We have ample off road parking for all our guests, together with secure bicycle storage. Our outdoor swimming pool (open during the summer) is set in its own terrace within the south facing grounds of just under 3 acres. Breakfast is available by prior arrangement. We make our own bread and yoghurt, source our bacon and sausages from our local butcher as well as provide Cornish butter and fresh free-range eggs for your breakfast along with fresh mushrooms and tomatoes (the latter home grown in season). There are several inns within 0.5m or so and a variety of different eating experiences are available in nearby Tavistock.
Dartmoor is virtually on the doorstep. The City of Plymouth lies just 14 miles to the South whilst the M5 motorway and the Cathedral City of Exeter, with its international airport, can easily be accessed via the A30 dual carriageway. Tavistock is in a uniquely central position making visits to the rest of Devon and to Cornwall easy e.g Eden, Heligan, Truro and St Austell, St Ives, Mevagissey, Bideford, Bude, Padstow and Newquay in an hour or less, Plymouth and Looe less than 30 mins. We look forward to welcoming you!
