Instow apartment on second floor of house overlooking water at Instow


best equipped accommodation we’ve stayed in ..

This is the best equipped accommodation we’ve stayed in. All the rooms are beautifully furnished and there are lots of little luxuries provided, which we really appreciated. It is also perfectly located overlooking the estuary and on the Tarka Trail- the views are stunning. Thanks very much to the owners, Liam and Jane, for making us so welcome, as well as their lovely dogs. Thank you

Perfect place to stay in Instow

The property was immaculately presented, with amazing views, and a great location. Only a few paces from the Tarka trail and the nearest pub. We had a lovely week , Liam and Jane are great hosts. Thank you

This one by far exceeds any rental we’ve stayed at..
We have just returned from an amazing week in Instow – and whilst I’ve never returned to a holiday flat I’ve stayed at, I will be returning to this one. We’ve been to Devon a number of times as a family, and this one by far exceeds any rental we’ve stayed at. It ticks ALL the boxes – near to a beach, near to pubs and restaurants, within a short drive to a surfing beach, fantastic views from the flat of the estuary, next to the Tarka Trail – it has everything! The flat is excellent – the kids had a big room to themselves and the kitchen has everything you need (should you wish to cook!). The view is amazing from all the rooms. I can’t recommend this flat highly enough – we had the best time here. There are so many things to do in the surrounding area – even if the sun isn’t out!
