Very clean and tidy property, plenty of kitchen equipment etc. This is the second time we have stayed in this particular apartment and it is in a brilliant location and very comfortable.

Mr S,

Perfectly placed on the edge of Instow, with the beach, prom and shop within a minutes' walk, Stars Cove is also only a few yards from the Tarka Trail, a former railway line level and traffic-free delight for cyclists and walkers alongside the Rivers Torridge and Taw. From the lounge, there's a delightful view over the sailing club and river to Appledore. Watching the sun go down and the lights coming on in Appledore with their reflections in the river is a lovely way to unwind in the evenings. The apartment benefits from the owning family having used it extensively themselves, so it's equipped with everything they needed which means it's sensibly and thoughtfully set up for most visitors, too. There's no kitchen cupboards full of the owners' cast-offs like holiday-impractical jelly moulds and gravy boats here! The apartment's also clean and smartly presented and the housekeeper is friendly and helpful if anything needs sorting out. We've stayed here before and, so long as it's still available, we know we'll be back for more than one stay again in future.

Mr T,

Great location - comfortable apartment and lovely view from the lounge. Well equipped . Bonus of parking

Mrs N,
