Romantic, stylish, modern. Effortlessly sowing beach chalet chic into a clean, spacious home, this property is perfect for a solo retreat or couple’s getaway. Set in the heart of the waterside village of Instow, there is great access to the local deli, eateries, walks and more. If you can tear yourself away from the interior, that is. Enjoying sea views from the upstairs balcony, you can get ready to explore Instow and its surroundings or simply sit back and relax with the sun on your face.

As soon as you arrive here, you will be won over with its clean, crisp interior. Downstairs, a well-equipped kitchen with electric oven, hob and microwave provides everything you could need for meals cooked at home. Head upstairs and you will find the lovely open-plan lounge. With light pouring in from the balcony doors, this is a wonderful space to nestle on the sofa and read a book, enjoy the views or tune into the Smart TV. The adjoining bedroom is home to a king-size bed, offering that extra touch of luxury.

When you are ready to venture out, Instow hosts a multitude of activities. Make use of the property’s bicycle storage and take to the Tarka Trail on two wheels. A seasonal ferry takes day trippers across to Appledore and back, and there are miles of jaw-dropping coastline to explore. Pay a visit to the local deli and stock up on fresh goods for a picnic. You can find a spot on dog-friendly Instow beach or drive the 5 miles to Westward Ho! Beach to enjoy endless sands.

Great apartment in a really accessible location. Right next to the Tarka Trail. Excellent local bus service, with a bus stop at the top of the road. The owners were really helpful and friendly.

Sails Loft is a beautiful well equipped accommodation built alongside and above a large garage. We found it to be modern, exceptionally clean and extremely roomy and has wonderful views from the upstairs windows and balcony over the estuary to Appledore. It is minutes from the water and set right adjacent to the Tarka Trail which is great for walkiRead moreng and cycling in either direction. We would definitely recommend it and would certainly stay here again if we come down to Devon in the future. Hide

The cottage was spotless and well equipped with a lovely view of the estuary. It made a great base to explore the north Devon coastline with friendly owners close by. We didn't have time to do all the things we had planned so will definitely return.

The property Sail Loft is exactly as described and immaculately clean on our arrival. What you see on the website pictures is what you get. The welcome card, bottle of wine and homemade chocolates was a lovely touch and sets the tone for the hospitality shown by our hosts. Beautiful views over the estuary towards Appledore, especially from the balcRead moreony. Two minute walk to the beach with two pubs and a restaurant there. Will definitely be looking to stay there again. Thank you. Hide
