The position of Halsbury couldn't be better. It is right at the heart of the action on Appledore Quay. 

The ferry across the river to the lovely sandy beach of Instow is just along the Quay. There are pubs, restaurants, cafes and numerous art galleries within very easy walking distance. 

The narrow roads behind the Quay (mostly inaccessible by car & hence almost always traffic free and child friendly) offer you a chance to discover some the very old history of Appledore and pop into a range of shops. 

Take a walk over to West Appledore via Irsha Street to see the charming ex-fisherman's cottages. Stop at the Royal George or The Beaver (or both!) for refreshment whilst taking in the views across the water. 

Westward Ho! just down the road has great surf and is also suitable for children.

Halsbury was originally bought by the owners great, great grandfather who ran a shop at the back of the house. 

Halsbury is in a perfect location for many reasons. Being on The Quay, the views and outlook are stunning. Across the water is a lovely sandy beach - ideal for children. 

A short walk along the quay, 'George Sands' is a great beach for dog walking at low tide. 

The 'Burrows' is another fantastic walking area, a short car ride away. 

Nearby Westward Ho! is superb for surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing. The world famous Croyde Bay is a 30 minute drive. 

For wet weather days, try the swimming pool at Northam (a couple of miles away) or try Atlantic Village with it's outlet shops and indoor & outdoor play areas for the children.
