The Elegant Estuary: Devon

Just a few metres from the River Torridge, this home is tucked down a narrow cobbled lane in the heart of postcard-pretty Appledore. It might look like a cute and cosy fisherman's cottage from the outside, but step inside and you'll find three floors of pure luxury.

Let's start up top, where the converted attic is home to the main bedroom. Striking wooden beams adorn the ceiling, giving a rustic vibe to an otherwise modern and understated decor. Two more stylish bedrooms and a lavish family bathroom – complete with an absolutely lush claw foot, roll top bath – make up the first floor.

On the ground level, the plush lounge has a fireplace for snuggling up on chilly English evenings, while the French doors open up to a heated courtyard which is simply divine – we can't think of a better spot to while away summer evenings, sipping wine and nibbling on snacks rustled up in the glossy kitchen.

This home is perfectly positioned for adventures around North Devon. Enjoy a stroll along the river, followed by a tour of the North Devon Maritime Museum (a four-minute walk away). For lunch, try the seaside rite of passage – steaming hot fish and chips and an ice cream cone for dessert. If it's the beach you crave, drive ten minutes to Westward Ho! – a Blue Flag beach where the kids can try watersports while you pitch a parasol and relax on the golden sands.

Home truths:
*As this home is set over three floors, you'll need to be able to climb some stairs to get around
*While this home is family-friendly, your host is not able to provide a cot or high chair
*As the main bedroom is a converted attic, there are sloped ceilings which might not suit taller guests
*This home has a private entrance
*While we love the overall design of this home, some parts lack natural light
*The kitchen is lacking some basic crockery and cooking utensils, so it might not be the best choice if you're planning family meals in
