Beach Cottages

Instow sits in the Bideford Estuary in North Devon just at the point where the rivers Taw and Torridge enter the bay. This is a popular destination with families as it offers a range of activity options, whether you’re looking for a relaxing break, an action packed holiday, or a bit of both. In summer the seafront is adorned with swirling sea birds, white sails and happy holidaymakers and at low tide a long stretch of golden sand comes into view, which at times coincides with the most spectacular sunsets across the waterscape.


This is a tranquil base where you can be at one with nature whilst the larger seaside towns of Bideford and Appledore are near enough so as to provide even more interesting things to see and do. The self-catering cottages in Instow range from small cosy cottages with open fires perfect for couples on short breaks, whilst the larger holiday cottages are child friendly and ideal for families. We haven’t forgotten your faithful hounds as there are a number of pet friendly cottages to rent, some that sit right on the beachfront enjoying direct beach access and fabulous sea views.
