Holmsleigh B&B in Braunton

Appledore North Devon

Appledore North Devon is a small fishing village with pretty coloured housing along narrow streets.

Appledore North Devon is just 30 minutes away from here by car and worth a visit to find out about the ship building and fishing industry of the North Devon area. Appledore was once an important ship building centre and is still active today. There is a Maritime Museum and an Angling Club for shore and boat fishing.

Eating out with a twist

So there are some nice places to eat in Appledore, great pubs and restaurants and tea rooms, but I would be cheating you out of a great experience if I didn’t guide you to Sylvesters Fish N Chips. Perfect white marble thick flesh on the fish with golden batter and crispy chips with a soft centre. It does get busy in summer with up to an hour wait, but enjoy the wait as well with a little entertainment laid on. There is a pub next door that allow you to take your Fish N Chips in to enjoy with a pint so that is unique called ” The Champ”.
