The terraced cottage has been thoughtfully furnished and presented and is just a short walk down to Instow’s beach. It has a wood burner in the living room to provide a cosy and relaxing atmosphere as well as a rear courtyard which also benefits from a rear access which is ideal for muddysandy paws or for surfboards and bikes. In the summer season the owner has secured a permit to park at the North Devon Cricket Club which is a 5-minute walk from the cottage. Anchor Cottage is a level walk to all the restaurants bars and pubs in Instow and there is even a very well-stocked and popular deliconvenience shop located within easy walking distance.

    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.

    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!

    We had a very nice 4 night break at anchor cottage. There was a very welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival. The cottage has everything you need to cater for yourself or use the nearby pubs and restaurants and of course the great Johns delicatessen and cafe. There are some brilliant walks and bike rides on the nearby tarka trail and the beach is great also for nice walks with the dog. The cottage caters for a dog and some nice touches like a comfy bed and treats.

    Stay in instow many times at different properties this was by far the best the owners went out their way to make us comfortable. Great location for us and the dogs good pub just across the road.

    What a beautiful cottage. Clean, warm and welcoming with lovely little extra touches like wine and bathrobes. Super dog friendly with everything you need supplied apart from food, even a jar of dog treats. Kitchen very well equipped but if you want to eat out there are 3 pubs/restaurants just over the road. Fabulous beach not more than 30 seconds away which our dog loved and easy access to the Tarka Trail a few minutes away. Will definitely be looking to do a return visit.

    My wife , myself and our Labrador stayed at Anchor Cottage for 4 nights from 21 September. The cottage was extremely comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. It's in a great location, close to the beach and 3 pubs. We managed to park directly outside the cottage and didn't move car the whole time. The cottage is old fisherman's cottage and is very quaint and quirky. We felt that the owner's had gone the extra mile in providing everything in the cottage to make the holiday memorable. We also had extremely good weather which helped, and walked Dougie, our Labrador, on the very dog friendly beach. We also walked on the Tarka trail and made good use of the local pubs. We would definitely stay in Anchor Cottage again.
