Dune View is a light and bright holiday home just two minutes from the sandy beach at Instow. A short stroll from the village pubs, cafes and restaurants spread out along the estuary, the property is tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac yet benefits from lovely sea views from some rooms.  Instow is popular with yachtsmen and it is delightful to sit and watch the sails fluttering in the wind as the boats head along the estuary and out to sea. On dry land, the famous 'Tarka Trail' wends its way through the village and cyclists will love the scenic, level and car-free track south to Bideford and beyond and north to Barnstaple (bicycles for hire locally). There are more shops and restaurants in both towns. The surfing beach of Westward Ho! is within easy reach and the wide, golden sands of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are 30 minutes' drive away across the river. Walkers will enjoy the challenging section of the South West Coastal path along the heritage coastline of Hartland Peninsular which features spectacular views at every turn. Dune View has been well-decorated, and the splashes of colour throughout give a cheerful aura. Upstairs there are two attractive bedrooms and a bathroom and downstairs an additional living room/third bedroom has a double bed settee. The main lounge opens up into a good-sized kitchen/diner and patio doors lead to the back garden. Fully enclosed, the lawned rear is ideal for children and pets and also offers garden furniture where guests can soak up the sea views.

Great location and a comfy, warm and clean holiday home. We had a great week at Dune View which was so close to the beach and estuary walks. There was ample space for the two of us and our 2 whippets (who loved the beach so much) and it was great to have a dog secure garden and parking space! Thanks to the owners for their clear instructions.. We loved Instow and the surrounds and walked on the various beaches including Instow to Yelland, Crow Point and Saunton Sands, Greysands beach. We prefer estuaries -they are always so much more interesting when the tide is out and change so much from one hour to the next. We also enjoyed the local pubs that were on our doorstep and very dog friendly. Hoping to return in the future and would recommend Dune View as great value for money for a nice quite off-peak break.

Dr H,

The cottage was in an ideal location for the beach and some good pubs/restaurants and also within a reasonable drive of some superb beaches. The cottage was small and cosy, suitable for three of us. Owner was friendly and helpful before we arrived.

Mrs B,

Great stay in a really nice cottage. Very near the front of Instow. Good to have a parking space.

Mr E,

We have been going to this lovely property for a number of years. It’s in a ideal location close to the amenities but not noisy and there’s car parking provided behind which is very convenient.

Mrs M,

A well-maintained, clean property located in an excellent position within short walking distances to the beach, pubs, restaurants and a well-stocked, local shop.

Mr F,
