This pretty fishing village is across the river from Instow and until recently there was a ferry taking foot passengers from Instow to Appledore. There is talk of reinstating the ferry and we are all hoping that this happens in 2010.
To visit now you will have to go by car which is a trip of only 6 miles. It is well worth the trip as you will be able to spend time wandering around the narrow cobbled streets which have many antique shops, book shops and art galleries. Appledore now puts on two great festivals – the Appledore Arts Festival and the Book Festival.
The George pub is worth a visit serving great food in the quaint restaurant with huge picture window right next to the river. There is also a really good fish and chip shop – Sylvesters in Meeting Street.
