Welcome to Appledown Cottage

The perfect location for a country escape, Appledown Cottage offers more than one would normally expect.  The accommodation is in a detached, self-contained, ground floor annexe, comprising en-suite bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and small conservatory dining area. Perfect for couples, friends or families, sleeping two in the bedroom and, if desired, two in the sitting room on the comfy sofa-bed (with independent access to the ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom). Use of the outdoor pool is included along with a dedicated private garden area and plenty of on site parking. Appledown Cottage has always been popular with cyclists and has secure cycle storage. Horse riding, walking, golf and other sports are all available locally, along with a wealth of beautiful countryside (including Dartmoor) and wonderful beaches within half an hour’s drive or so.

The well-equipped accommodation is available as a self-service holiday let, with crisp white bed linen and soft fluffy towels included.

We look forward to welcoming you!


A beautiful home in tranquil surroundings! The biggest and most comfortable bed ever and an awesome shower! The whole place was amazing! Highly recommended!!!”

What a gem. This is the best Airbnb we’ve stayed so far. Beautiful views, wonderful hosts, great accommodation. We liked it so much we’ve copied the plans and intend to build one ourselves in Queensland for when guests come to visit. Thank you Gil n Dave, for both the stay and the inspiration.”

Lovely Cottage.  Found Appledown Cottage when searching for somewhere private and comfortable to stay near Tavistock whilst visiting family members and am so glad that we did! The Cottage is perfect if you want to stay somewhere spacious, clean, comfortable and with lovely, helpful hosts. The swimming pool was a massive plus in the hot weather and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Cottage to any couple looking for a bit of comfort. The other bonus is the location of the Cottage, only 3 or 4 miles to Tavistock and many other places to visit are easily accessible.

Ideal base for exploring the areaThe cottage is bigger than we thought, ideal for our needs. The views are stunning, garden great to relax in. Cottage very well equipped and hosts friendly and helpful. Comfortable base from which to explore the area. Would recommend this place.”
