‘Impressive and spacious’ are the first words that describe this period seaside villa. With breathtaking views over the River Torridge, Instow beach, the sea and across the estuary towards Appledore, The Captain’s House (centre property in photograph) is also owned and managed by the Webbery Estate (refs HPPR, HPPS, H81, HDDP, HDDN, HDDQ, HDDO and HMMN, just 15 minutes away) and is located in the pretty coastal village of Instow, just a short walk from the beach.
One of a pair, the holiday house has an enclosed garden and patio area to the rear which is accessed via kitchen and dining area. Guests can enjoy lovely views from most of the upstairs bedrooms including a large bay window in the first floor sitting room and there is a small reading area that overlooks the garden on the first floor mezzanine level. The pretty village of Instow, located between Barnstaple and Bideford has stretches of golden, sandy beaches and dunes, which makes this an ideal place for a relaxing family holiday. An ideal spot for most watersports and sea-fishing can be enjoyed here, or alternatively local boat trips are available. For those wishing to sample the local food, plenty of pubs and restaurants can be found in Instow and the speciality is seafood, of course.
The famous ‘Tarka Trail’, just on the doorstep, is perfect for walkers and cyclists and follows the estuary towards Braunton and is a lovely way to experience the delights that this area has to offer. On the opposite side of the estuary is Appledore, a pretty unspoilt village with a wealth of painted fishermen’s cottages, found up narrow winding streets, some of which date back as far as 1335. Famous for its maritime history and arts there is a maritime museum and numerous arts and crafts shops. Just a short drive away, visitors will find a substantial and popular surfing beach and golf courses at famous Westward Ho! Within 2 miles is Bideford with its historic port and lively market as well as regular boat trips to nearby Lundy Island. The Dartington Crystal factory and RHS gardens at Rosemoor are easily accessible, as is a wealth of National Trust properties including Tapely Park and Hartland Abbey, to name a few. Shops 100 yards.
