Cath & Adrian Elliott purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Cath & Adrian Elliott chose Bideford
We purchased Allsorted because we had been looking to buy a holiday cottage for a while, but any previous properties just did not have the wow factor for us. But we immediately fell in love with Allsorted as soon as we went through the front door. Even Mum gave it nine out of ten (you could have knocked me down with a feather) some other houses had scored as low as two with her. It is a quirky sort of property, but is has a positive, happy feel about it which seems immediately relaxing.
What makes this Cottage unique
We lived in a remote part of Combe Martin when we bought Allsorted, and we found it an absolute pleasure when we stay in the cottage. Everything is just so handy. Supermarkets and local shops, literally five minutes walk over the old bridge (no need to get the car out!!!). For several years if we fancied a take away it would be a major expedition, we could not believe our luck at Allsorted you can have an array of different take aways delivered to your front door. We are so taken with Bideford, that we moved here in 2014, enjoying the local green grocers, excellent butchers, and regular markets on the Quay.

Pleasant little cottage...
...Just what we wanted fora short break in Bdeford
A quirky cottage!
A sweet little cottage in a good location for the town. Lovely views over the estuary at night with bridge all lit up.
Well equipped and just as described.
Parking not too far away and not too expensive - can get 7 days parking for £16. Only down side was the only bathroom is down a steep spiral staircase but this as clearly described in listing.
Short stay in a lovely house.
Lovely little house by the river. Nice long garden with a good view of the water from seating provided. Depending on whether you like to sit in the sun or shade, an umbrella would of been useful.
Cottage was lovely and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped and bathroom great. Beds and linen made for a good nights sleep.
Black out blinds or curtains would be good as woke up early both days and the garden was untidy. Needed cutting back.
Family 80th Birthday Celebrations in Torrington 2019
Altogether was a great choice for us - only 7 miles from parents in Torrington and for our 2 night stay the cottage was cosy and fully equipped for our needs. The weather for June was not optimal for sitting out in the little garden but we enjoyed the estuary views nonetheless. Definitely recommend this cottage for couples wishing to explore the area.
Thank you so much for the great review, and for leaving such a lovely note on the blackboard in the cottage!
Cute Devon cottage, exactly as expected
All our cottages are ideal for those seeking a "car free" holiday.
The estuary is on your doorstep, with the nearest beach being Westward Ho! and Appledore being approx 10 minutes drive away, Saunton Sands and Croyde beaches approx 30 minutes drive, then the spectacular 3 mile long beach at Woolacombe is approx 45 minutes drive away, all very popular with surfers.
Nearest airport is Exeter, being approx 1 1/2 hours drive away, and Bristol being the same distance, just north rather than south. The train service is also very good, with the nearest station at Barnstaple, only 20 mins drive away. The bus service is very good and frequent, or plenty of taxis are available if you prefer. Use of a car is handy, but car hire is plentiful if required.
Nearest town is Bideford being a 5 minute walk away. For greater selection of the larger stores, Barnstaple, the regional centre is approx 20 minutes drive away. The village of Appledore is very popular with its narrow streets, galleries, and quaint shops, along with a very popular slipway access for those interested in boating.
Bideford is very fortunate with a number of traditional shops, butchers and greengrocers still remaining open, although there are 3 large supermarkets on the outside of town. Also several restaurants, cafes and fast food establishments.For keen gardeners, the delightful and intriguing gardens of RHS Rosemoor are only a short drive away. For cyclists, bikes can be hired locally (2 minutes walk from the cottage, at the end of the road!) for use on the tarka trail which is literally 1 minute from the cottage.
