Owner was easy to communicate with, great views, heating worked well so we could warm up the flat soon after arrival.
We are not smokers and the smell of old smoke was strong, overlaid by plug in air fresheners - not good. Lots of scorch marks on the carpets from ash. The double bedroom could be so improved just by putting a valence on the bed.
I washed most of the kitchen utensils and crockery before use, dirty and had food stuck to them. Tin opener very grubby and did not work, frustrating when you want to cook!
These things are easy to solve and I hope the owner addresses these issues for guests.

I loved staying at the boat yard, the flat is extremly well presented, with amazing views over the estuary and also over a working ship yard from the two (yes thats two!) Balconys. I had great pleasure watching a local mid size fishing boat being finsihed and launched from the slip right next to me, and also the Appledore lifeboat refuling very close to where I was staying.
The property is located just a couple minutes from the lovely little town of Appledore and 5 mins drive the amazing beach at Westward Ho!
Inside the property is presented to an extremely high standard, everything you need is provided and Jan is always on hand if you need anything at all.

I would HIGHLY recommend looking at this property if your looking to stay in the area this year, you will not be dissapointed !!

Lovely time in Appledore this October. The boat yard is situated, quite literally, overlooking the estuary. Where functional dockyards operate and can be seen from one of two balconies at the property.

But fear not the peace and quiet remained unbroken throughout and the views were lovely with moonlight glinting off the waters in the evenings and a beautiful sunrise over the moorings each morning.

A large asda store is within a few minutes drive with a morrisons closer still providing everything you need to easily stock the ample fridge and freezer and of course a bottle or two of something nice to enjoy against the view!

The local town of westward ho!, yes complete with exclamation mark on every sign, is beautiful and bustling and full of activities and lovely places to eat or drink. The kids will be entertained all day long with everything from go karting to crazy golf and indoor playrooms for the youngest ... don't worry they are always visible from the pubs!!

The boat yard was perfect for us as a family group and in a brilliant location for the money. The internal furnishings and equipment more than met our needs and were clean and generally in good condition with only the odd minor repair required, and even then no more than cosmetic.

All in all this was a great break away perfect for families and we would definitely come again without hesitation !!
