Overlooking the beach, this property is in the perfect location for making memories on your family holiday by the sea.

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.

    This was our fifth visit to Instow House: we went three years running, and again in 2008, and then again this year. We were overjoyed to find it essentially unchanged ie perfect in every way. Our children's picture of the beach and Appledore is still on the twin bedroom wall. We made a few forays to visit favourite haunts: Tapeley Park, Hartland Abbey, Appledore, and, of course, John's, but spent a lot of time in the cottage hunting for Easter eggs in the garden and enjoying the views and the beach.

    Very relaxing long weekend despite the awful weather which says much for the comfort of the house. TV reception dreadful presumably because of the gale blowing outside so thank god for the superfast broadband wifi! Sofa very comfy as was bed. Kitchen was rather cramped but ok. Good for our 4 legged family members! overall cosy rather than spacious but we would come again.

    The cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. It was beautifully furnished and the décor was delightful with many artistic touches. As we were staying for Christmas week we had the benefit of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the lounge, also crackers and wine. The weather could have been kinder but it was such a cosy home that we did not mind staying in on Christmas day. As we have stayed in Instow before in a different cottage, we knew the area and places to visit, but if you are visiting for the first time, we feel a more up to date revue of the surrounding area and places to visit would be beneficial. We would have liked instructions on recycling and which bins to use.

    Fabulous location with wonderful views. Instow House had great amenities and great garden. Fantastic for dog and he loved the beach and garden. Being so close to local pubs, restaurant and shops was a real advantage. Great walking and so close to Tarka Trail. The beaches are amazing and just wonderful explore. Wifi was a very useful for all of us and especially our 16 year old son.

    Great location and superb views from the house. Secure garden with close proximity to fabulous dog-friendly beach. Instow is well served with excellent frequent bus service to Barnstable and beyond.Double bedroom very small.Very limited kitchen work surface and food storage space. No full length mirror anywhere.
