is the only company on the North Cornwall / Devon / Somerset coast, to the best of our knowledge, which charters skippered sailing boats.


Appledore Sails
hopes to provide you with a unique adventure. We do not crowd as many people on to the boat as possible. Normally only two or three guests would be on board. This will normally be just a couple, or a small group of friends. There is a maximum of six people on Patron at any one time, and four guests is the maximum we will take on Jez-y-belle.


Appledore Sails
hopes its guests will want to join in with sailing the boat, within their abilities. Even first timers can take the tiller and pull a few ropes!

What guests say:


I really enjoyed sailing down to Bideford, and around the estuary in Jez-y-belle. A beautiful, traditional little boat, sailing in her was a reminder of times past, a really memorable experience.
