A perfect location to explore all that North Devon has to offer. The sandy estuary beach of Instow is just a short walk away. Why not enjoy a relaxing drink on the privacy of your own covered terrace.

Superbly located above Instow overlooking the Torridge estuary, this lovely property offers fabulous views from a stunning first floor balcony and is just a short walk to the local sandy beach and village amenities. Charmingly styled throughout and with a luxurious hot tub on the patio, this is a delightful property for a family break and sleeps ten guests across five bedrooms.

The star feature of this property is the large lounge, located on the first floor. With squashy leather sofas to sink into, this characterful room has double doors opening out onto a fabulous balcony where you can sit with a drink and take in the views of the rolling hills and sparkling sea below. On chillier evenings, close the doors, light the wood burner and snuggle up to enjoy a family film together. A formal dining area sits next to the lounge, also offering lovely views. The charming country-cottage style kitchen with its warming Aga is well-equipped for rustling up some tasty family meals. A handy serving hatch opens directly into the dining area, and there is an additional table and chairs in the kitchen too – a pleasant spot for morning coffee. Of the five charmingly decorated bedrooms, three are downstairs – two twins, one of which has a snug area ideal for children, with a TV, board games and a desk, and the other an en-suite shower room. A further bedroom is located down a few steps and has a super king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs on the first floor are two more lovely, elegant bedrooms, both with king-size zip-and-link bedrooms, which can be made up as twins if required. The large garage outside houses a games room for all-round family entertainment – try your hand at darts, table football or table tennis. Outside, relax on the decked area or sink into the hot tub and enjoy the views. The raised lawn area has additional garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ and is a lovely spot for a family BBQ on a warm, balmy evening. At the end of the sweeping driveway there is ample parking for up to eight cars.

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

  • 5 bedrooms - 3 super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made up as twins on request) and 2 twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request)
  • 4 en-suite bathrooms and 1 separate WC
  • Aga, dishwasher and Smeg fridge/freezer
  • Utility room with electric oven and hob, microwave and washing machine
  • Games room in garage with table tennis, darts, table football and tumble dryer
  • Wood burner (first basket of logs included)
  • Electric and central heating included
  • Off-road parking for 8 cars

The property is conveniently located just a short walk from Instow village where you can find a couple of pubs and restaurants and also a deli/cafe selling delicious local produce. The fabulous sandy beach – Instow Sands – is just a short walk away. Enjoy a paddle and indulge in a little rock-pooling or head out into the water – it's a great spot for windsurfing. The famous Tarka Trail runs straight through Instow – head out on a family walk or a cycle ride along this scenic route that follows the River Torridge south towards Bideford.
