Property code: 77889

This remarkable property has been furnished to a beautiful standard throughout, offering a private hot tub, games room and much more; it truly is the perfect bolthole for a family retreat.

Situated in the estuary village of Instow, this well-presented four-bedroom house is ideal for families or friends seeking a coastal cottage from which to explore North Devon. After a long day at the beach, rinse off the sand in the garden shower before taking a dip in the hot tub for an indulgent soak. Start a darts tournament in the games room and watch the sunset from the first-floor balcony. The golden sandy beach is less than 500 metres away and the Tarka Trail leads through the village for a traffic-free walk or cycle ride amidst the beautiful Devon countryside.

 

Hang up outdoor clothing and remove sandy shoes in the spacious entrance hallway where there is a convenient cloakroom with WC. The light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner has a warm and welcoming feel. The well-equipped kitchen has everything needed for a home-from-home stay and there’s a large dining table with ample seating for everyone. Doors lead out into the garden, filling this space with natural light. In the evening, relax in the comfortable lounge watching TV or playing a board game. Children and adults alike will enjoy the snug/games room with TV, dartboard and small pool table. Heading upstairs you will find four comfortable bedrooms. The master bedroom is a well-appointed king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room and a balcony looking out across the estuary. There is a further king-size bedroom, a twin zip and link bedroom, and a bedroom with a single and a cabin bed on this level. Finally, there is a spacious family bathroom. Venturing outside, the large enclosed garden has a seating area for al fresco dining. Enjoy a dip in the hot tub or share a sociable evening meal at the BBQ area. Bike and surfboard storage is available and there’s off-road parking for two cars.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great place to stay, great location, literally couple of mins walk to the beach and pubs. Garden is definitely enclosed and great for dogs, the outdoor shower was an added bonus to wash the dog down after a walk! Personally we didnt find the beds comfy, but thats because we have a temper mattress at home. The only thing missing from the cutlery draRead morew was a whisk & there werent any oven gloves. But theyre just minor things Hide

We had a fabulous stay at Sandbars. It is definitely on the list for a future visit. Couldnt fault it! Very well equipped with all the usual kitchen appliances but the added thought of a beer fridge, a spirit measure and a coffee maker for the hangovers! Cant recommend it highly enough. Thanks

We had a great holiday in this fantastic property. The house is in an ideal location for local amenities and a very short walk to the beach, which is also great for dogs. It is also ideal for site seeing and visiting the many attractions and activities that are nearby. Instow itself was not busy considering it was peak season which was an added bonRead moreus. Normally we would not re-visit the same place for a holiday but would definitely return to Instow and stay in this beautiful property again. Hide

We had an absolutely fantastic time at this beautiful house. It was our first family holiday with three generations and everybody had a wonderful time. We couldnt have asked for anything more. The house is modern, bright and decorated beautifully throughout. The garden is very social and immaculate.

Absolutely fantastic house & location. Superbly equipped to a high specification. Garden is also perfect, with lots of seating in and out of the shade, with a larger than average hot tub. Very dog-friendly along with the local area/beach, lots of walking from your doorstep. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

Great property, we were all very impressed at the very high standard. The house was very well equipped. It was not the cheapest property we looked at but we still considered it good value for money. Nice to have a place in Instow with parking spaces.
