A fabulously and tastefully renovated house with an amazing view of the River Torridge looking down to Instow, also just down the road from Appledore, quiet, well equipped, you really can't go far wrong in renting The Old Kiln, full marks and thanks to the owners for a job very well done!

August 2020

The Old Kiln is a fantastic place to stay: luxurious, spacious and comfortable. The most special thing about the house is the stunning views straight from the house over the estuary. It’s a wonderful place and the situation is outstanding. The owners have done a excellent job of refurbishing the house and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it.

Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
