Staying at Polly's is like a visit to a friend's house. Polly was extremely helpful, giving advice to us about walking the SW Coast path, which she has done herself. As well as an excellent breakfast, Polly cooked an evening meal for us which was delicious and very good value.

As this was very much a last minute booking, we were very lucky to book Polly-Dora's House. We stayed two nights on the 17th and 18th August, and from the moment we knocked on the front door, we were made to feel very welcome by Polly. Our room was a good size double, with a small en-suite containing everything we...

We only stayed here one night but had a thoroughly pleasant experience. With tremendous character everything was just great: beds, pillows, and cleanliness. Never had such a lovely breakfast, this consisted of delicious and homemade bread, jams and marmalade....Polly is a perfect B&B host, and made us to feel very welcome and comfortable.

We stayed here early June and felt so welcome. Polly is full of useful info on appledore and the surrounding areas. The breakfasts were out of this world! Didn't have to eat till dinner time!! I would 100% recommend Polly's to anyone, I've stayed in other accommodation in Appledore and none rival it.

Our family had a really nice stay at Polly Dora's this summer. Polly was really very generous, making suggestions as to places to visit, and was a really lovely and interesting lady. She made a real effort to make us welcome and enjoy our stay without intruding. We had a family room, a main room for myself and partner and...
