We are open during the winter months from 11am to 4pm Wednesday to Sunday. We fully comply with all hygiene precautions, offering hand sanitiser, a screen, payment via credit or debit card and maintaining social distance.
We look forward to seeing you during the winter months.

Every September the village hosts the Appledore Book Festival inviting well-known writers, politicians and broadcasters to give talks and presentations. The Festival always attracts a wonderful line-up of world-class writers and speakers, from talks to workshops and ‘in conversation with’ sessions, there is plenty of choice. Our gallery promotes this event with a special window display.
Unlike some other coastal villages, Appledore has remained unspoiled and maintains its strong seafaring tradition. It is home to the North Devon Maritime Museum, the famous Appledore shipyard and an RNLI Lifeboat Station. And local fishermen still moor alongside the quay to sell their daily catch straight off the boat.
