A fantastic little hideaway with amazing views. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Lots of lovely walks nearby. We loved exploring Appledore and Instow. The walk down to Bideford was nice and easy with a novel boat bar on the way there. Morrisons nearby was handy too. Will definitely visit again.

The owner is nice, great location but would not recommend due to the damp and lice issue! Unsecured due to broken locks, just lift up the bedroom window and your in, so unable to leave any valuables

.... We were disappointed! The drive to the apartment is quite rough, mostly the views across the estuary are spectacular, but obstructed looking from the lounge by some trees. We found both the beds and the sofa uncomfortable, also the bathroom in need of modernisation. The apartment became very, very cold of an evening ... we had to use the heatiRead moreng every night, albeit daytime temperatures 25 degrees! The occupants above were persistently noisy, early am. and late pm. The internet was useless. Hide

Hi nice spacious ground floor flat within walking distance of Bideford and good walk to Appledore (don't take bicycles on this route though not suitable!) Nice bed linen and towels and nice comfy beds. All needs catered for. Extremely peaceful location right by the estuary.
