Appledore village, Devon

Appledore is a village at the mouth of the River Torridge. It lies on the west bank, opposite Instow and about 6 miles west of Barnstaple and 3 miles north of Bideford.

Its major employers are Appledore Shipbuilders, and it is home to Hocking's Ice Cream. It has a very nautical feel with a RNLI lifeboat slipway, a pilot gig club and promenade.

The village is a popular tourist destination, in easy reach of all of North Devon and Cornwall. To this end, many of the houses are winter lets and holiday cottages.
