Visit Appledore

Appledore is a village on the North Devon coast to the west of Barnstable on the mouth of the River Torridge.

Centred around its quay and harbour, Appledore has a long tradition as a ship-building centre (although there is now only one remaining active shipyard here), and an even longer history as a fishing village. This illustrious history is celebrated in the North Devon Maritime Museum in Appledore.

The quay is still popular with visitors arriving by boat, as well as local fishing boats. The village itself is pleasant, with a nice walk along the seafront, carring on to coastal Westward Ho! to the south-west of Apledore.

Behind the harbour there is a warren of narrow streets lined with pretty whitewashed and painted houses to explore running up the hill, and a good selection of small shops and galleries, pubs and cafes.

Various coastal boat trips can be organised departing from Appledore, for sightseeing or fishing, while one treat you should also enjoy here is the local ice cream - made in Appledore by Hockings Ice Cream and popular all across Devon.

You can find more local travel ideas in the Devon guide and the Devon guide.
