This attractive period cottage is on Marine Parade in the sought-after north Devon coastal resort of Instow, a seaside village with the most fabulous sandy beach. A perfect base for a family holiday, this deceptively spacious property is set back from the road yet benefits from views across to the sand dunes and, from one of the four well appointed bedrooms, the sea. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Braunton Burrows is just across the estuary, and on a clear day Lundy Island can be seen beyond. This beautifully presented cottage has been thoughtfully renovated to incorporate interesting original features such as a 'secret' inner courtyard. From the enclosed garden, steps lead down to off road parking for two cars.
The sandy beach is wonderful for children to play on as even at high tide there is plenty of sand. At low tide the sea leaves some lovely shallow pools. The estuary attracts sailors, canoeists and anglers. The most famous surfing beaches in this area are at Croyde and Woolacombe a short drive away, and kite surfing is very popular at Westward Ho!. Passing through the village, the traffic-free Tarka Trail offers walkers and cyclists a fantastic facility on the doorstep. There is a little seasonal ferry from Instow across the estuary to Appledore where there is a fabulous deli/cafe – there is a sister deli in Instow – and several tempting galleries to choose holiday treats from. Out-of-season this location is a paradise for dog owners and in high season there is a dog-friendly section of beach.
