Add a bit of seaside charm to your next getaway by opting for this wonderful cottage just off the sandy beach of Instow, North Devon. This fabulous holiday home provides a cosy retreat for a family of four and their two furry-tailed pals. Relax in the vast lawned garden and fire up the BBQ.

This family-friendly property is light, airy and decorated in beautifully neutral tones for a relaxing stay. The welcoming lounge/diner is well furnished, offering spacious living accommodation with cozy sofas and a Smart TV. For those self-catered holiday feasts, head into the well-appointed kitchen space and prepare the ingredients you picked up earlier from the nearby delicatessen. Continue the laughter in the games room, which also doubles as a utility. Round off the night with post-dinner drinks out in the enclosed garden and sip away whilst the sun sets in the distance. When it’s time for bed, head up the open tread staircase and choose between the stylish king-size with its estuary glimpses and the super-king-size zip-and-link. Freshen up for the day in the modern bathroom.

Take your pups on their morning walkies along the Tarka Trail, which sits directly behind the property and stretches through 180 miles of gorgeous Devon countryside. Alternatively, don your boots and stroll along the beach which also sits adjacent to the property. It’s the perfect location! Top up supplies at the shop or dine out at the many pubs and restaurants, all of which are located just 0.5 miles from the cottage. Further afield, the fishing village of Appledore is available to travel to by seasonal passenger ferry (5 miles by car) or Westward Ho! (5 miles) offers a traditional seaside day out with arcades, fish and chips, wonderful views and brightly painted cottages.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size and 1 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request)
  • 2 bathrooms – 1 shower room with shower and WC; 1 bathroom with shower over the bath, and WC; 1 separate WC

The cottage was perfect, location ideal just a five minute walk down to the beach and 2 pubs which served good food. Cottage had some nice touches that made it feel like a home rather than a rental property.

The accommodation was really great. It was warm and welcoming. A dog blanket if you allow your pets up on the sofa, was very handy. The location for the dog friendly beach, pubs and restaurants couldnt have been more perfect. Great space for parking. All mod cons. And the owner very kindly allowed us to leave a bit later than was stated in the depaRead morerture details, which was a big bonus as it allowed us to get breakfast in a local pub before we travelled home. We really hope to stay again. Hide

We have been coming to Instow for 7 years, this house is most definitely the best. Very comfortable and relaxing. We were lucky with the weather. Spent a lot of time in the lovely garden and enjoyed seeing a hedgehog most evenings.Parking is perfect and everything is just a few steps away, including lovely pubs and restaurants. Great beach for the Read moredog and plenty of walks nearby. Just perfect. We booked for next year before we came home but sadly could only get 7 nights not 14 as so popular. Hide
