Beautiful coastal cottage situated a stone throw from the sandy beach, perfect for family days out. Bring the whole family and your four-legged friend for a truly enjoyable family holiday.

Unwind and recharge your batteries at this delightful and surprisingly spacious property, which is set in an enviable position overlooking the sandy beach and dunes at Instow. Perfectly positioned within the lovely waterside village of Instow which offers a variety of family and dog friendly restaurants and bars as well as a wonderful deli and tearoom, all a level walk along the seafront. Take an evening stroll and watch the sun set, over the fishing village of Appledore. If you can pull yourself away from the property there is a small passenger ferry (which runs during the summer) that takes you across the estuary to the fishing village of Appledore, with its narrow street and cobbled “Drang” ways. Whether you are looking for a relaxing break or adventures and activities the area caters for all needs; take a cycle ride on the beautiful Tarka Trail which runs through the village and offers miles of traffic free cycleways and footpaths, enjoy a day body boarding or book surfing lessons at nearby sandy beach of Westward Ho! Also, well worth a visit are family attractions such as The Big Sheep and The Milky Way, walk down the cobbled street of the quintessential fishing village of Clovelly, visit the beautiful gardens at Tapeley park and RHS Gardens at Rosemoor – to name but a few. Whatever you choose your memories will linger long after your perfect holiday draws to a close.

The cottage couldnt have been better situated for the beach which was ideal for walking the dog. Everything had been thought of in the cottage for a very comfortable stay. Two lovely pubs with good food very close by. The garden was not as dog proof as we expected, the wall between the two gardens was quite low, however it didnt create a problem asRead more we always kept her on a lead. Hide

Everything was great and the hosts are really helpful. Cottage is in a fantastic location, right on the beach front and near to two lovely pubs/restaurants (boat house and instow arms) and along the main beach front. The parking space is a god send and really really helpful, knowing you have a space and also lots of room for unpacking etc. The gardRead moreen of the cottage is lovely and we enjoyed this in the mornings and early evenings (nice and secure for the kids and the dog) Would recommend Hide

We found the cottage to be of the highest standard in terms of cleanliness, comfort and provision of equipment. We very much appreciated the chocolates, milk, biscuits etc that we found waiting for us. As for location, it really couldn't be much better! It was just a shame that we shared our stay with Storm Dennis and the subsequent poor weather!
