    Great location with fantastic views, pubs and shops nearby, very clean and with nice comfy beds. Only downside is I agree with previous comments, the bathroom is in desperate need of renovation, but we still had a great time.

    A very relaxing stay for our wedding anniversary weekend. Such a treat to stay right beside the water, the views are stunning! As other reviews have said, the bathroom could do with a little TLC but overall the cottage is lovely. Our dog loved looking out at the view and enjoyed lots of walks around Appledore and the nearby country park. We would love to come back in the warmer months so we can sit outside and fully appreciate the location!

    We had the most amazing stay and love the house and location. It’s perfect for families and had everything we needed including a lovely Complimentary hamper! Let us know when it’s for sale!!

    Had an absolutely wonderful time at Shorewaters. Great location, fantastic views and so comfortable. Would recommend two changes to the cottage; refurb the downstairs bathroom and add sensor light on stairs from top bedroom so if you do have to go to the toilet in the night you don’t need to turn the lights on

    Appledore is a hidden gem and the waterside location of this cottage is something special. Only downsides are 3/4 bed is rather small for 2 adults and 1 shower for 6 requires organisation! No car parking space and public car park is a 5 min walk, but weekly ticket available for £16 summer 2019 so not too expensive. Lots to do in the area. Went sailing, walking with Alpacas, RHS Rosemore, cliff walk and Exmoor zoo, among other things.

    Shore waters is a lovely location and the cottage is well equipped. We have a thirteen and ten year old and they loved crabbing from the balcony. Appledore has everything that you need and is incredibly friendly and a foodies paradise. We had such a lovely time there. Westward Ho! Was great for bodyboarding and the Milky Way was a great day out for the family. The down side was a cottage a couple of doors up is being gutted and totally done up so all through the day there was constant banging and high speed tools on the go and I also had to close the doors on the balcony due to the language coming from the builders. (This is not the owners fault and these things happen) The Bathroom downstairs is very cramped and we read that it was to be re done and is a little tired and could do with some TLC. There were a number of bulbs blown and not replaced on our arrival and the previous visitors had not left the wheelie bin unlocked so we had to store our rubbish bags until the next collection. As this is a fisherman’s cottage the stairs are very steep so be careful. Although these are the negatives we had, the pros certainly outweighed them. It really is an idyllic cottage and location. We would certainly re visit if the chance arose. Appledore captivates you with its charm and so does the cottage. There are certainly some quirky and eccentric houses in Appledore which we loved. There is no sea side chintz, but classy delicatessens and shops. If people mention about the parking negatives, there are none! Little exercise never goes amiss. It was very logical and makes sense. Unload and load the car on arrival and departure outside the cottage and then park in the public car park. Simple! Thank you for letting us use the cottage and we would certainly like to return.
