Appledore, North Devon…..
Last week we went to Appledor in North Devon coast and it was a beautiful spring break despite the chill in the air.
We stayed in the centre of Appledore in a quaint traditional cottage with views of the sea – wonderful!
Appledore is a picturesque tiny fishing village with cobbled narrow streets and fishermen’s cottages, pubs, shops and art galleries. It has been a famous boat-building centre for many years and the shipyard is still active today.
One day we had a very long walk from Lynton Gorge to Watersmeet- it was quite spectacular scenery. Lush green valley alongside the river with waterfalls and bridges. Very well worth the walk – it is just absolutely stunning!
Another day we went to see the Hartland Abbey a very nice house and gardens. We finished the day with another super walk out to the coast. The scenery was wild , breathtaking and around the coast there were a lot of rock formations which were amazing to look at to say the least! It is well worth a trip in its own right.
I have to mention one of Alex’s highlights the Atlantis Adventure park! He loved the grazy golf, the maize but mostly liked the jumping pillows he bounced and jumped on until he can jump and bounce no more.
We had a go as well!
All in all, it was a good family break! A lovely holiday with scenery just a bit different from home!
