Abernyte is an a great cottage for a holiday. The Victorian terrace is on a quiet cobbled terrace with beautiful estuary views across to Instow, with more views from the deck in the back garden, the lounge and two bedrooms. It is a peaceful and sunny place but a stones throw from the seaside activities on the quay in Appledore or a ferry ride over to Instow or a walk to the unspoilt national park of Northam Burrows and a surfing beach. The house is light colourful and airy.
Appledore is an enchanting fishing village, quaint and full of colour. There is a lovely atmosphere, peaceful yet alive with seaside activities and festivals. Enjoy a ride over to Instow on the local ferry, crabbing or fishing on the quay, meandering the colourful streets adorned with bunting to explore the many local artist shops, enjoy fish and chips or a local Hockings ice cream on the front or relax in one of the restaurants or pubs, many of which host live bands. Nearby are surfing beaches or Northam burrows where the beaches and the fast flow of the estuary water gives an immense feeling of space. Within a 20 minutes drive you can reach the most incredible cliffs of Hartland point or 30 minutes the popular surfing beaches of Bude or 40 minutes Woolacombe. There are many festivals to enjoy throughout the year, from sailing and gig rowing regattas to literary and arts festivals. There is even a world crabbing competition!

Atención a los huéspedes
I live between Appledore and a rural eco retreat in Andalucia, Southern Spain, where I am currently building a round cob building, called Hearts Nest in a small eucalyptus woods. I hope to run creative workshops there and build some colour cob sculptures where people can rest and absorb coloured light. I will not be able to greet you in Appledore but am happy to be in phone or internet contact, before and during your stay. Sand Piper property management will also be in touch with you via a text message shortly before your arrival so you have their telephone number, if you have any problems whilst you are staying in Abernyte Cottage. Also, if you need to speak to someone out of normal working hours, your telephone call will transfer to an out of hours number. The key can be accessed from a key safe at the property.
I have worked as a Creative arts therapist in the UK for many years but recently decided to move to Andalucia to create a space where sculptures and spaces can be made from natural materials. Cielo Rosa and Casita Rosa are set in a natural space that is blessed with beauty and natural resources and I am excited to be a part of the projects that will be evolve here. I hope to offer environmental arts workshops in the future and am looking forward to working with many of the amazing people that live in this area.
I hope that everyone that comes to stay will enjoy the tranquillity here and enjoy the beauty and fun that is on offer in this area.
I have loved being an Airbnb host over the past year and look forward to meeting you and helping to make you stay special here.
