Appledore is a beautiful, historic maritime village within an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you live here, are a return visitor or you are visiting for the first time, we’d like to extend a warm welcome from the Festival Team and all our business supporters in the village. This section aims to help you make the most of your visit. Nearly 7,000 thousand tickets were purchased last year so the village becomes extremely busy, please plan your visit to avoid disappointment if you need accommodation and would like to include a meal and drinks during your stay.
