Beach Cottages

Instow can be found across the estuary from Appledore in North Devon, close to a host of sandy beaches, coastal paths and sightseeing opportunities.  Beautiful scenery, family and dog friendly pubs and restaurants and the perfect seaside village for relaxing short breaks, Instow provides plenty to see and do for young and old. Whether you’re a walker, bird watcher or wind surfer you’ll find a range of pastimes suitable for active breaks or if you prefer a more laid back holiday simply enjoy the changing scenery on the estuary whilst hopping aboard the ferry to Appledore.


The self-catering cottages in Instow listed below are all on or near the seafront with many offering uninterrupted sea views and can be booked direct with the property agent or owner. There are a range of child friendly cottages for families, pet friendly cottages for dog lovers and a few cottages for couples on romantic breaks or a honeymoon. We recommend hiring a car, as Instow is located at the gateway to North Devon where you’ll discover miles of beautiful coastline and great beaches ideal for children, surfers or nature lovers. Choosing the ideal holiday home can be a challenge, so if you need to see more choice then check out the fantastic range of self-catering Devon cottages advertised on Beachlets, many featuring sea views, hot tubs and direct beach access.
