    > The small seaside village of Instow, with its stretch of golden sand and dunes, provides the setting for this lovely house. Adjoining another property on Marine Parade, it overlooks the beach, making it ideal for a family seaside holiday. Memories are to be made in this very unique and unspoilt part of North Devon; water sports, sailing, fishing, golf and riding can all be enjoyed locally, with scenic walking and cycling along the original coastal railway, now forming part of the famous ‘Tarka Trail’. Bideford, Barnstaple and Westward Ho! offer their own blend of attractions close by, while just yards from the house are two excellent restaurants specialising in seafood and offering fine views across the bay towards Appledore.

    We had a lovely time. The kitchen wasn’t the best equipped and some of the cupboards not very clean inside. The house is also not big enough really to say that it sleeps 6. Location is amazing.

    Beautiful house, everything we needed and wanted. The views are lovely. The locals are friendly and helpful. It's perfect if you have a dog because they are allowed on the beach. You get a warm welcome at the pub a few doors down and the food was very good. Again dogs welcome there too. The beach doesn't get over busy, so plenty of room for family games. The sand on the beach is perfect for sand castle making.

    Fantastic location next to the beach. Great pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Lovely ferry trip across to Appledore for a pint and fish and chips. Comfortable accommodation with nice arty touches. A little tired in places but location makes up that. Good for dogs.

    A relaxed feel to the house. Paddy our Labrador loved all, particularly the garden, the short walk to the beach and the dog friendly pubs and cafe. Crufts on Sea is his favourite. We have recommended to friends.

    You will not find a better situated seaside house! The view and cottage garden are breathtaking. Fab pubs and eateries within easy walking distance on ‘the flat’. Bathrooms and linen immaculate - rest of house could do with a real deep clean but did this bother us NO. Single beds need new mattresses as the are incredibly uncomfortable! So bad I slept downstairs on the day bed in the lounge. Did this spoil my holiday No! Main bedroom has no wardrobe - just shelving on a wardrobe. This caused my friends but did it spoil their holiday NO. In reality I didn’t feel the need to make any negative comments but thought the info might be helpful. If you want a holiday in a beautiful location - do not hesitate to book. Can honestly say this place is special x

    The location is fabulous. The garden perfect to watch the sun set. The house is lovely but rather in need a a good clean. The kitchen needed wiping down and much of the crockery and cutlery had to be washed before we could use it. Rather tired is the kindest phrase I can use. But the location is lovely and Instow is super for a dog holiday.

    Instow House is in a fantastic location. However, the house was in need of a good clean (lots of dog hairs everywhere, including the furniture and plenty of dust) and the towels appeared to be stained (I tried washing them again but was unable to get rid of the brownish marks). The enclosed garden was beautiful but I would say not secure for dogs or young children as in places the wall was only 2-3 feet high but with a 6-8 foot drop on the other side. The bedrooms would benefit from blackout blinds as the windows and views are beautiful during the daytime but the curtains let in a great deal of light early in the morning.

    My holiday was good but was little spoilt because it was dirty Cobwebs, dirty curtains, shelf in bathroom was rusty. The best thing about this house is the garden and beach view.

    Birthday gift for Dads 70th. Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful house. Dad, Mum and two dogs were very happy. We were all sad to leave. Will 100% return. One down side, single beds squeaked an awful lot, the rest of the house was spot on. Thank you so much ?

    Perfectly situated just seconds from the beach. An idyllic hideaway but with plenty to do in the local area - would absolutely recommend.

    A really lovely cottage that quickly becomes "home". It is pretty, cared for, homely & very private. It has views to die for and at night, the sight of Appledore all lit up is quite magical. Can't wait to go back.

    Accommodation met our anticipation and hopes. The kitchen was adequate and reasonably equipped. The lounge comfortable. The beds comfortable albeit the staircase would prove a bit difficult for infirm less agile guests..... steep, narrow and 18 steps ..... There is a cosy pleasant atmosphere to the house with great sea and beach views from most windows...especially the double bedroom. Great place to stay all round for us. Midway twix Barnstable and Great Torrington for Tarka Trail and Bideford.
