Property code: 78273

This stylish beach side retreat is situated in the heart of the quaint seaside village of Instow, which has a golden sands beach and amenities all within easy reach, making this is the perfect getaway.

Located just 50 metres from the Tarka Trail and half a mile from Instow Beach, this property promises an unforgettable escape to guests. Contemporary and comfortable, this elegant holiday home is an opportunity to get away from busy life while still having plenty to do on your doorstep. While away the evenings in the hot tub among a wonderful Mediterranean garden after a long day walking along the South West Coast Path.

Whether you’re watching the Smart TV in the open-plan living area or you’re sizzling up a BBQ in the garden, there’s something for everyone here. Clean and fresh interiors give a luxurious feel, especially in the bathroom where careful placement of house plants makes it a pleasure to have a long soak in the bath before bed. Sleek and shiny cabinets in the kitchen mean cooking up family meals is a treat; chat with the chef at the island with a glass of wine before heading to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of their labour.

Catch the seasonal ferry over to historic fishing village Appledore (2 miles; 6 miles by car) and discover lots of shops, pubs and restaurants. For a change of beach scenery, Westward Ho! (5.5 miles) offers arcades, go karts and paddleboard hire to keep everyone occupied and beautiful Northam Burrows Country Park backs the beach. Kids will love the rides and attractions at the BIG Sheep where sheep races and lamb bottle feeding sessions keep everyone feeling warm and fuzzy.

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

Beautiful house in a lovely quiet location close to the beach. The owner has thought of everything to make a holiday comfortable. The kitchen is very well appointed with good quality appliances. We loved the hot tub in the sheltered private garden. Great restaurants within walking distance. Instow is a lovely unspoilt village. Ann
