Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Instow is a lovely quiet and unspoilt Devon village and Kingsley Cottage is located in the heart of it. The views across the estuary were fantastic and the location across the road from the beach was perfect for walking the dog (no summer restrictions either from this point of view). The cottage was gorgeous and the shaker style was just up our street. Perfect for exploring. June 2012.
  2. This cottage was fantastic location fantastic and the people in the village very friendly. May 2012.
  3. The Cottage was well equipped and a good standard. Very clean and sky tv was a welcome addition. Being so close to the beach was a treat. Overall, we felt the property was under representative in the overview on your website. A lovely cottage that put many of your other five star properties we have stayed previously stay to shame. March 2012.
  4. We absolutely loved our time in Kingsley Cottage, it’s in a wonderful location, the cottage is beautifully decorated and cosy and The Wayfarer Inn opposite with Vera and her great team made our week. John’s of Instow is the most wonderful local store with everything you could want. We adored our walks on the beach in front and visiting neighbouring areas, a lovely relaxing stay. Jan 2012.
  5. Really lovely cottage in a great position. It had everything you needed and is obviously thoughtfully put together as a holiday cottage. Pub across the road was really friendly too. Dec 2011.
  6. A lovely cottage with a great location. We had a fantastic week in the cottage and were delighted with our choice. Oct 2011.
  7. One of the best equipped cottages in a superb location. The beach is wonderful and the public transport system means you can leave your vehicle parked up and relax. Local pub/restaurants are friendly and excellent value with superb food. One of the better holidays. Sept 2011.
  8. A comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully furnished cottage a stone’s throw away from the beach. The views from the upstairs over the estuary and coast are great, with beautiful sunsets and lots to see on the river. Pubs, restaurants and shops are all within walking distance and it was an ideal location for dog-owners (the beach nearby being dog-friendly when we visited in July). All in all, an excellent cottage and holiday. July 2011.
  9. Excellent for dog lovers, fantastic. June 2011.
  10. The property was very quirky and decorated lovely, it was a relaxing place to stay which is just what we wanted. Nov 2010.

  18. Lovely property in a nice quiet location. March 2010.
  19. Superb location, one minute from lovely sandy beach and 30 seconds from restaurants/pubs. Parking could be a problem. Feb 2010.
  20. Clean, welcoming. Easy access to the beach and walking area. We recently stayed in a cottage in Cornwall with similar description and was appalling. Well done to the owner. Although we took a pet, there was no sign of any previous pets, no marks on the wall/carpet or smell. Feb 2010.
