It was great that all the things we needed were provided, everything was very clean and looked lovely. There was plenty of space for us, and the location was perfect for us as well. The welcome package was greatly appreciated, as was all the helpful information. Property looked exactly like the pictures. A lot of attention to detail meant everything we needed was provided, plus some really helpful extras like tea bags, crabing equipment and a wind break. Excellent location and very clean. Had a lovely holiday

Cockle cottage is in a great location in appledore,good size cottage, fans would be a bonus in this cottage as upper floors very warm. Only 2minutes from the front, nice restaurant and couple nice pubs. John's shop and bakery excellent. Great base for exploring.

Lovely cottage in the heart of Appledore, was ideal for our family of 4 and the bathroom is huge!!! Is close to all amenities in the village....Johns is a great place for all your essentials. We are out every night and would highly recommend The Flame Factory, The Seagate and The Beaver Inn. All great places to eat and the kids loved them too. Catching the Ferry to Instow is also a must and it has a lovely beach there too. All in all we had a really nice time and will definately use Marsdens again.

Beautiful cottage which is immaculate. Appledore itself is really pretty with lots of quaint shops, cafes & pubs. Johns' has everything you could possibly need. Instow has a lovely beach which the dogs loved. I recommend Instow Inn & Quay Inn. Lynton and Lynmouth is well worth the visit, it's pretty special. Thank you!

Cockle Cottage is an excellent cottage. The original features and character are amazing and it has been renovated to a very high standard. The cottage is deceptively spacious and the layout worked really well. Although our children are 'grown up' and over 6 ft tall they all loved the Smugglers bedrooms up the curvy staircase! Cockle Cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could need, as well as thoughtful extras such as crabbing buckets and lines. We had a really super holiday and would definitely like to return to Cockle cottage in the future.

Mr N Wells

Cockle Cottage

Fantastic property that has been very well refurbished and fitted out superbly. There are some lovely personal touches that really help to demonstrate the passion that the owners have put into this cottage. Great location too, next to some great pubs, fish and chip shops and John's Deli. We will definitely be re-booking again in the future.
