    Fabulous little cottage equipped with everything a human of dog could need. Warm and beautifully furnished. Close to a great beach for dog walking at this time of the year. Lovely restaurant and pub a few steps from the front door. Great location. Will highly recommend.

    We felt very at home in this lovely cottage.... it was hard to leave so we have booked it twice more this year! The location is superb... even if it’s raining, you are so close to the beach, you just wait for it to stop, then get straight onto the beach within 30 seconds! Every aspect was catered for...chocs and wine for us and a bed, biscuits and towels for the dogs. We were very spoiled. Thankyou very much to Pauline and Steve for being such excellent hosts. See you again soon!

    Stayed at Anchor Cottage for week to 17 Jan. Cottage was very well equipped Also lovely and warm. We were there for storm Bruce but still managed to get out and about Instow lovely cute place we liked the seafood Inn rhe best but didn't have bad meal anywhere. Locally very good only few steps to lovely beach and all restaurant's. We have two black labradors they loved all dogfriendly beaches especially as usual. Woolacombe and Croyde. Would definitely recommend xCarole.. John Maddie. Lex. You

    What amazing little find, a beautiful cottage that has everything you could possibly need and is in a fantastic location. We couldn't fault it, the cottage was beautifully cleaned and there was even a welcome gift of some very tasty cookies and a very nice bottle of red left for us. The beds were very comfortable. The dogs loved every second of our stay, especially how close the beach is, it really is only about 50yrds down the road and you have miles of unspoilt beach to roam. The local pubs are also very good and welcoming. The Wayfairers Inn (Opposite side of the road) is very nice and does some very good pub grub then you have the Instow Arms just down the road which also does some very nice food but our favorite was the The Boathouse. Really fab food and a lovely atmosphere, if you get into the Wayfarers on quiz night we had a really good time, very friendly locals and a great quiz master. All and all a fabulous cottage for a week away, very relaxing and we have already reccomended it to all our friends. We would certainly return.

    Cottage was warm welcoming spotless & one of the most comfortable & best cottages we have stayed in & we have been coming to instow for years thoroughly recommended this cottage.



    out of 10

    Very nice cottage and clean. Well located for beach and pub and nearby restaurants which are well worth a try. A couple of downsides is could do with a bit more area regards work surfaces in the kitchen and it is a bit hit and miss if you can park near the cottage.



    out of 10

    Lovelly cottage, ideal especially for 2 or 3 people. Instow has to be one of our favourite resorts with plenty of good eating and drinking venues. handily placed shop/deli and cafe too.

    A great location and home to enjoy for a break in the UK. We had a great time, especially the children and dog as the beach was a very short distance away. Local restaurants were very close by and this made the holiday very relaxing and enjoyable.



    out of 10

    Lovely cottage in such a fabulous location. Steps from a very doggie friendly beach and 3 pubs. John’s Deli just a short walk for groceries and a café with delicious coffee Cottage very comfortable. Thoughtful extras including wine and cake on arrival. Stunning sunsets included! Will visit again. Thanks!
