The village even hosts its own annual book festival.
In the heart of Appleford, on Bude Street, there is a door that leads not to the courtyard of one property, but seven.
Serving as the “village within a village’s” centre, the Mediterranean-style courtyard features stylish grey slabs lined with pretty plants and colourful cottages.

All three have slate tiled floors in their kitchens, as well as wooden beams on the ceilings, adding to the rustic but stylish vibe.
They also each have a bedroom with an en-suite.
The apartments are slightly smaller but are just as comfortable and modern inside, with one of the flats thought to have previously been a shop.
“The chance to make a purchase as unique as this one doesn’t present itself all the time, so it’s certainly not one to be missed.”
James Carroll, spokesperson for north Devon-based estate agents Jackson-Stops Barnstaple, added: “While they benefit from their own secluded air of privacy, these properties retain a fantastic sense of community and benefit from being located within Appledore which itself is a highly desirable village.
“As well as the cottages and apartments offering income opportunities, this property also comes with a shop on Bude Street which is currently being let out, giving the future buyer yet another potential business venture to embark on.”
