Property Description

The small seaside village of Instow, with its stretch of golden sand and dunes, provides the setting for this lovely house. Adjoining another property on Marine Parade, it overlooks the beach, making it ideal for a family seaside holiday. Memories are to be made in this very unique and unspoilt part of North Devon; water sports, sailing, fishing, golf and riding can all be enjoyed locally, with scenic walking and cycling along the original coastal railway, now forming part of the famous ‘Tarka Trail’. Bideford, Barnstaple and Westward Ho! offer their own blend of attractions close by, while just yards from the house are two excellent restaurants specialising in seafood and offering fine views across the bay towards Appledore.

Step down to large living/dining room with elec woodburner, panoramic sea views, day bed (for +2), TV and French doors to garden. Modern kitchen. Shower room with toilet. First floor: Two bedrooms with sea views; one double, one twin. Bathroom with over-bath shower, toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. An excellent location with stunning views. Well equipped. Main bedroom small for 2 people but views and position make up for any shortfalls. Good car parking although entry and exit onto driveway from single lane is very tight and could be wider. Nov 2012.
  2. This is a beautifully situated property overlooking the Taw & Torridge. The property is comfortable and all of the equipment is in good working order. Sept 2012.
  3. Property and location both first class, plenty of information provided to make the holiday a great one. Enjoyed a great day out at the milky way theme park also the swimming pool at Croyde, both recommended by the cottage owners. All in all a great holiday. May 2012.
  4. This is our ideal property and we rebooked on the day we got home! Although the weather was terrible we still went onto the beach several times a day and tried to visit a few surrounding places. We loved the space in the property and the views and all the home comforts. April 2012.
  5. This is a lovely house in a fabulous location and DOG FRIENDLY! The sandy beach at the bottom of the garden is dog friendly all year and was lovely. the village itself is unspoilt and has nice quality eateries. this is the best rental property we have ever stayed in much so that we have already booked for 2013! April 2012.
  6. An attractive property in a superb location - watching the sunset over Appledore across the estuary of the Torridge River was a nightly ritual. There are three first class pubs / restaurants within 100 yards and you can lose the extra calories on the Tarka Trail or the vast (dog friendly) beach across the road from Instow House. The property is described as suitable for 4+2, but I think it would be a bit cramped trying to fit in the +2. April 2012.
  7. Our 4th visit. A perfect holiday especially if you are taking a dog. Feb 2012.
  8. Nice cosy cottage with nice views, sitting in the window with a glass of wine watching the sun go down is a must! Hire bikes and cycle on the Tarka trail is fun. 3 pubs a few doors away all good food. Feb 2012.
  9. Thank you so much to the owner who kindly packed up and couriered by bag to me which I left at the property by mistake. Dec 2011.
  10. Lovely location very peaceful overlooking estuary, with fabulous pub and nothing to do except walk the dogs. Perfect. Spacious, clean and very well catered for. Will definitely return. Dec 2011.
  11. Great location, easy access to buses to travel to all parts of North Devon. The views were beautiful. Overall a wonderful place and holiday, we will definitely be back. June 2011.
  12. Fantastic setting. Lovely beaches, very clean and lots to do. April 2011.
  13. Easy access to garden, beach, buses and restaurants. Lovely fresh white towels and linen. Also a vey nice welcome gift of wine and some milk for immediate use. Plus fresh flowers. Nov 2010.
  14. A stunning location. Ideal as a base for exploring North Devon or just as a relaxing retreat. Impossible not to like, the property had all necessary amenities and was a pleasure to stay in. Sept 2010.
  15. Sitting in bed in the morning looking at the great view. Easy access to the great beach for walking the dog. Able to sit outside, eat and soak up the views. Aug 2010.
  16. The property is a fantastic holiday cottage in the most idyllic position overlooking the beach. We have been three times and have booked already for 2011. June 2010.
  17. Absolutely perfect location. May 2010.
  18. Position and style - sea view from all main rooms. April 2010.
  19. The property was furnished to a high standard and in keeping with the property. I would love to live there permanently. I only have one comment which is not which is we had had a power cut it would have been helpful to have a torch. March 2010.
  20. Beautiful location. Very clean beach house. Lovely views from nearly all rooms. Lovely garden, ideal for dogs and secure for children. Double bedroom a little tight for space. March 2010.
