About Water's Reach

Uninterrupted views, over the stunning estuary, from our 200-year-old Georgian townhouse in popular Irsha Street
Our house, we think, is one of the most charming properties in Appledore. We, as a family, have been in Appledore for 38 years now. There are lovely walks around and dogs are allowed on our foreshore at any time, with 'No restrictions' except at high tide!! A slipway is 20 paces away. Dogs downstairs, in the house only please. There is a charge of £20 per week for doggies. Two well behaved dogs only and all hair to be removed on leaving, please.
Appledore was featured on the One Show, as one of the most unspoilt places to visit in the West Country. There is cycling on the Tarka trail with many places where cycles are for hire. Lovely beaches, with fantastic surfing nearby. Fishing, sailing, bird watching, walking, cream teas and Music evenings in the pubs.
There are two excellent top quality pubs with sea views, a few paces away
. Trips to Lundy Island from Bideford.
Waters Reach is well-equipped. On the ground floor, is a regency dining room, seating for six, a fully-fitted kitchen, a small breakfast room off it. A good sized shower room, with basin and W/C
The views here are stunning, from the house. On the first floor there is a purpose built sofa bed, TV and DVD, Many books and games too. We try and keep our prices reasonable and give you the option of taking your own bedding down or, if you wish, Jenny, our housekeeper will make your beds up for £8 per bed. £2 for a towel.
There is a bathroom on the first floor.
On the second floor, to the rear there is a twin bedded room, overlooking Appledore's rooftops and gardens. To the front a double bedded bedroom with the most stunning views of the river estuary. There is a TV and you can sit up in bed and look out across the wide estuary. You can even hear the waves lapping the foreshore at high tide.
There are two excellent pubs within walking distance, which are dog friendly. In fact all the pubs in Appledore are dog friendly. Along with the foreshore.
Most of our guests love Waters Reach and Appledore. Many book up year after year, we hope you will want too
Waters Reach is a comfortable family home with spectacular views. Well-behaved pets welcome but downstairs only. Not really suitable for children under 3 years old or smokers.
