    “The area was quiet and the cottage comfortable.”

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The only negative part was that I found the water pressure in the shower a little weak, but I just had baths instead.

The property

Apple Tree Cottage is a welcoming holiday home found in the lovely village of Aveton Gifford, in easy reach of many coastal and countryside wonders.

A wonderful Devonshire home for a family of four, this cottage offers all the home comforts you could need on a week-long stay.

Enjoy quality time spent together within the homely sitting room, with a television providing your evening entertainment, or carry your conversations through into the kitchen/diner where everyone can gather around the table and raise a glass to a terrific retreat while the chef of the group makes the most of the handy utensils and appliances at hand.

Be sure to make the most of your outside space too, with the front lawn making a great space to soak in the sun while your canine companions play safely, as well as there being a small rear courtyard.

Up on the first floor you can find the two sleeping spots made up of a king-size and a bunk room, each with neutral hues creating a simple yet stylish setting where you can catch up on your rest, as well as the sparkling family bathroom being on this floor too.

Start each day with a walk along the River Avon which flows through the local village and stop to pick up some fresh ingredients for a hearty breakfast from the local shop.

The village is home to a Post Office with a shop, a bakery and a pub/restaurant, so you can find all you could need for a self-catering stay just a gentle walk away.

You can find even more amenities within the nearby market town of Kingsbridge making it a lovely day trip for those seeking idyllic walks and opportunities for sailing, while even more watersports can be found along the coast with plenty of beautiful beaches to take your pick from, Salcombe, Bantham and Bigbury being particularly popular for a day trip by the coast.

Venture out to find the excitement of Plymouth with its National Marine Aquarium, wonderful shopping experiences, pretty parks and historic delights, while the avid outdoors lover should be sure to explore the stunning coastal paths for walking, cycling, horse riding and so much more amidst some of the most rewarding sights in the country.

Choose Apple Tree Cottage for your next fun-filled adventure to Devon.
