Instow is a really attractive coastal village on the Torridge Estuary, with long sandy beaches for all the family to enjoy.
2 Bar View is a beautifully presented period house with the sand dunes and beach just a few steps away across Marine Parade.
The spacious sea facing living-room in this lovely holiday home opens out onto the enclosed garden.
The kitchen is separated from the dining-area with  its clever and functional design.
The wonderful sandy beach within steps of your holiday home.
You can sit out on the patio at the front of the house looking out towards the beach across the enclosed garden.
There is a wonderfully sociable kitchen/dining-room, equipped with all that you could possibly need for your family holiday.
There is a little inner courtyard with bi-fold doors opening from the kitchen.
Looking across the living room all the way down through to the kitchen to the left and the courtyard to the right.
Open the bi-fold doors right up so that the kitchen and courtyard become one sociable extended space.
The dining-area is at the far end of the kitchen and there is comfortable seating for the seven guests that the house accommodates.
The master bedroom is at the sea-face of the house, with dual-aspect sash windows looking right out to sea.
The master bedroom can be made up as twin beds or as a super-king size double bed on request.
What a place to start your day!
Lovely art work adorns the walls making 2 Bar View a very welcoming and cheerful place to stay.
This is attention to detail throughout the house.
This is the en suite double bedroom at the inland end of the house.
The en suite has a great wet-room style shower tucked around the corner.
There is a bright and cheerful twin bedroom.
Another view of the twin bedroom with its seaside colours.
This room is just right for a seaside holiday!
This is the single bedroom - another friendly and welcoming room.
The first floor landing runs the length of the house linking all the bedrooms.
There is a large family bathroom.
So useful to have the option of a bath or a shower.
More fun to add to a happy stay.
This is the inland facing side of the house - you can park right outside the door if you wish to enter this way.
Most guests park at the seaward face of the house, on Marine Parade, where there is parking for two cars side by side as in this photograph.
The Owners even provide deck chairs and buckets and spades to take across the road to the beach.
This is the seafront along the coastal road, Marine Parade, at Instow. 2 Bar View is just around the left-hand corner.
2 Bar View is the second cottage from the right, taken from the sand dunes.
Relax and unwind in this special location.

An excellently equipped, tastefully decorated cottage in an attractive village which boasts a very good deli/bakery.

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!

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.


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.

2 Bar View has to be one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. Beautifully thoughtful decor and comfortable furnishings, it is perfectly situated in the lovely village of Instow. We are already working out an opportunity to return.

Can only say that it was by far the best holiday cottage in this country we have stayed in. All the comforts of home in a lovely setting. All this and it was pet friendly too.

My brother-in law didn't realize he had left his mobile phone behind. The owner contacted us about this straight away and sent it on to us immediately. It arrived the very next day... I hadn't even finished unpacking!! Really impressed.
