2 Bar View is a wonderful holiday home - it's really home from home! Ideal for the beach, Johns Store and restaurants. A very friendly and informal atmosphere which made our holiday very special. This was our third visit to 2 Bar View and we plan to return. Many thanks to Mr and Mrs Cole for providing such a perfect place.
Mrs Curl May 2018
Very well appointed cottage in a lovely spot. Instow has all you need on the doorstep - between pubs to eat out and Johns for everything to eat in! The Tarka trail is a must and accessible even on a mobility scooter! Would thoroughly reccomend it.
Mrs Wilkes March 2018
Our third stay at Bar View. All 7 of us this time plus Winnie the labradoodle. Had a wonderful time in relaxing surroundings, cooking, taking in the view and walking on the beach. Perfect!!

Mrs Banks June 2017
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Would love to live there. Wish I could afford to stay more often. My miniature Schnauzer Tuppence had a wonderful time on the beach, as did my 9 year old granddaughter, lovely walks and plenty of beachcombing for my son and son-in-law. Would love to know more about the history of the cottage. Can't praise it enough.

A fabulous 'home from home'. We felt relaxed and comfortable as soon as we arrived. Beautifully furnished and little extras provided by the owners really made a difference - for example rubber ducks in the bathroom for our son, binoculars in the bedroom window, dog bowls etc. Fantastic location with access to everything you need just a short stroll away. We can't wait to visit again!
Mr Fox December 2016

Lovely property in a fabulous location. Very happy with everything. The Owners left heating on constant which allowed us to regulate the temperature to our liking (as it did get cold in evenings and mornings). Didn't want to leave! Excellent service from Classic too - Thank you.
Mrs Nicholson April 2016
A beautiful well equipped cottage in a lovely location. We loved the dog walks on the beach every evening, and so did he! Watching the sun go down with a bottle of beer and our best friend sat rolling in the sand! Priceless! The cottage was the best in terms of decor, equipment and comfort that we have ever stayed in. I don't normally bother with feed back, this cottage has made me as it was so lovely I just had to say so!

2 Bar View was probably the best cottage we have stayed at with classic cottages over the last ten years plus. The position by the sea and sand dunes made for a lovely sea side holiday also the very high standard to which two bar view is presented and maintained is exceptional. We had a wonderful holiday and we all want to go back soon! Thank you for such a lovely stay.
