Excellently positioned property for accessing all the surrounding area & attractions especially the coastal villages & beeches. Property is very quaint & cosy with a lovely garden overlooking the estuary. The proposed new conservatory with the kitchen & dining area will certainly be worth a revisit next year. Highly recommended if you are looking for a thoroughly relaxing break with lovely walks & local attractions to visit.

Mrs C,

Inglenook Cottage is ideally located to explore this area of Devon. It is a well stocked accommodation with everything you need for your stay. The kitchen is small but well resourced and apparently is the area of the cottage soon to be remodelled which will be worth a revisit to see. There are some lovely places to eat in Instow, a 15 minute walk straight down the hill. Walking back up can take a while longer at the end of the evening but more than manageable. There are lots of footpaths off from the cottage and the Tarka Way is close by. You can walk along this to Fremington Quay for a great breakfast or lunch. The only thing to consider is parking - it is limited especially in school time as the property is close to the local primary - which was not a problem in itself! We would not hesitate to book this property again if visiting North Devon.

Mrs J,

Inglenook Cottage is a delightful and very homely place to stay. It is well equipped, homely and comfortable. Its location in a tiny hamlet on the outskirts of Instow is peaceful & relaxing and there are wonderful views from the upstairs windows. The woodburner & provision of logs, firelighters & matches make for cosy evenings in the lounge and the large bath was blissful to relax in after long walks on the coast path. We loved our 5- night stay and were blessed with sunny days to see & enjoy the area at its best. Many thanks to the cottage owner, Lyn the housekeeper & Marsdens Cottages, who really made the booking, arrival & departure process so easy & informatively helpful.

Mr W,

The cottage was cosy and very comfortable. High stands of cleanliness. A welcome tea tray on arrival was a nice touch. The garden was private we brought our dog so this was a plus. Good views from the property. Lots of walks from the cottage. We would definitely visit again

Mrs K,

I have known this property for years as I grew up in the village. It's a lovely location, and very nicely decorated and furnished. Having the annex and the outside space is a real bonus on a sunny day or starry evening! A real little treasure.

Ms P,

Delightful cottage in close location to Instow beach and amenities. Warm and cosy, well equipped - welcome tray a nice touch. Parking can be tricky on side of lane by school, no allocated space provided. Would definitely recommend and hope to return.

Mrs M,

Lovely cosy cottage. Lit log fire every night! Perfect for dogs as the garden is escape proof and dogs can run on the beach all year round.

Mrs R,
