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

This contemporary, ground-floor apartment in the delightful North Devon village of Instow is the ideal retreat for friends and families. Located within a mile of the village's beach, dunes, shops and pubs, there is plenty to do in this attractive village. The former railway line, the Tarka Trail, also passes through which provides a flat cycling/walking trail for exploring the area. On a summer's day, you can open the patio doors and enjoy views of boats on the estuary and the pretty, fishing village of Appledore in the distance.

Light, bright and airy, this property blends contemporary fixtures and fittings with traditional furniture to create a comfortable and welcoming feel throughout. There is a small hallway for coats and shoes before you move into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where light floods in through the large patio doors, whilst the kitchen has everything you'll need to cook up some treats. Along the hallway, you'll find an attractive king-size bedroom, a twin room with an en-suite shower room, and an additional shower room. Outside, there is a small patio with garden furniture as well as a larger shared garden.

Join the Tarka Trail to find market towns Bideford (3.5 miles) and Great Torrington (10.5 miles) in one direction and the larger town of Barnstaple (6.5 miles) in the other. Alternatively, take to the water and catch the summer ferry across to Appledore. For days on the beach, head to popular Westward Ho! (5 miles) with its golden sand, amenities and entertainment. For history, head to the steep, cobbled streets of Clovelly (14.5 miles) or stunning Hartland Quay (20 miles). Award-winning attractions The Big Sheep and The Milky Way are within 10.5 miles.

Very comfortable, well equipped property. Beds and seating area very good. Reasonably good access for mobility challenged guest...one step at front door, otherwise flat & level

We stayed for 3 days in October 2019 to cycle the Tarka Trail - very conveniently situated for that! The flat was warm and comfortable when we came in from the cold. There was lots to do in the area - we managed to squeeze in a visit to Arlington Hall and Rosemoor on the way home.

Tarka Sands is in an excellent location, perfect for walking into the village and for longer walks along the Tarka Trail. Everything spotless, a comfy bed, nice towels, good showers and plenty of room and equipment in the kitchen. We had a great stay there.

This is a clean, well-maintained flat. It is well located for places to visit, especially the many lovely gardens. The Quay Inn is only five minute's walk away. It is just an ordinary pub, but they really know how to cook! There are many fresh seafood dishes on the specials board and the staff are friendly.
