Contemporarily styled seaside property, just a short walk from the attractive village of Instows sandy estuary beach, sand dunes, and pubs.

Set in the pretty and popular waterfront village of Instow, Brock Cottage awaits, offering the perfect seaside escape in this sought-after location. The golden sands of Instow beach and meandering estuary provide an idyllic spot to enjoy a picnic or ice cream on a summers day. With views of the quaint village of Appledore just across the water, it’s not hard to see why Instow is so attractive to both locals and visitors all year round.

Warm and welcoming throughout, the cottage is cosy yet full of light. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner on the ground floor is a bright and spacious room where the whole family can relax after a busy day. The modern, well-equipped kitchen has plenty of storage and is neatly tucked away. Leading out of the lounge area, open-tread wooden stairs take you to the first floor where the three bedrooms are located – a tranquil double, twin and a cosy bunk bedroom perfect for the kids. The modern family bathroom is also conveniently located on the first floor. Outside the property, you will find a fantastic enclosed patio garden with furniture and BBQ for sunny evenings and alfresco meals.

Whether it’s a day on the beach or a family bike ride, the location of Brock cottage can’t be beaten. Take a 500-metre walk down to the golden sands for a day relaxing by the water, or the Tarka Trail can be found just 800 metres from the property for a cycle along the shore. For a fun-filled day for the kids The BIG Sheep is just 6 miles away – let them run wild in the indoor play area or explore the many agricultural delights including sheep shearing demonstrations.

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

Lovely cottage for 2 adults & 2 Labs. Very warm & welcoming during the cooler month of Oct. The location is spot on, Instow is beautiful.

Very comfortable house in a fantastic location, two minutes from a lovely beach and within an easy short walk of four very good, dog friendly, pubs all serving good food which were as popular with the locals as the tourists.

The cottage is well located and close to the beach. Fantastic walks and lovely beach within 2 minutes walk. The cottage is looks good inside and is well equipped. If the owners address the maintenance issues the place would be fantastic. The kitchen could use a spring clean!

Great location and perfect for a break away with the family. Cottage has an enclosed garden which was great for the dogs and to sit out late afternoon to catch the sun. Pubs and restaurants are a short walk away and offer great pub meals. Beach was lovely and many coastal routes available to walk the dogs.

Brock Cottage was a perfect base for our trip - in a quiet cul-de-sac just 2 minutes walk to the beach and several pubs. It was spacious and comfortable with everything you could need (and some things you wouldnt even think of!)

Brook Cottage is in an ideal location in Instow, literally round the corner from the beach. The property could do with some updating but it was a comfortable cosy base for our family holiday. We had some issues with cleanliness when we arrived, which we reported and were assured this would be dealt with to ensure it wouldn't happen again.

The cottage was lovely and homely and was only a drive away from alot of places. Although it rained we was surprise to find some family friendly games that we enjoyed and still had amazing family time even when the rain was too heavy to leave. We would come back and recommend anyone wanting some time away with this family.
