Appledore, the Pastel-Coloured Village

Appledore is a fishing village three miles north of Bideford, near the estuary of the Taw and Torridge Rivers. A Saxon settlement, it underwent a Viking raid in 878 AD and prospered in the Elizabethan period.

Home to England's last purely commercial shipbuilder, the village has a long winding road lined with pastel-coloured Georgian cottages.

I couldn't resist their charms, taking photo after photo.

Their colours ever changing.

This cottage, particularly narrow, looked like just like its name, The Doll House.

The doors, all in beautiful colours, were irresistible.
