Appledore

Drive around from the Burrows and you will arrive at the thriving fishing village of Appledore, with boats bobbing on the River Torridge. The village offers a splendid range of shops, hotels, pubs and galleries.

Appledore has been a thriving fishing and trading village since the 14th century. Many of the fishermen’s cottages in the quaint, narrow streets date back to Elizabethan times. The Church of St Mary’s was built in 1837 and the tower was added in 1909.

Another place of interest is the North Devon Maritime Museum, each room of which depicts a different aspect of life at sea. Today, the Quay is the focus of village life. From there you can take a trip on the River Torridge with Tarka Cruises, or take the ferry service across the river to Instow.
