2 Bar View is a wonderful property in the most idyllic location just a few steps from the sandy beach at Instow with its delightful views across the estuary to Appledore. This lovely character cottage is deceptively spacious and being situated in a slightly elevated position enjoys good views over the sand dunes. Sea views can also be enjoyed from the first floor looking out towards the sand bar across the confluence of the Taw and Torridge estuaries. The cottage is of a high standard throughout with great attention to detail to ensure you will have a wonderful holiday experience. On the ground floor a spacious and very comfortable lounge opens out into the garden and seems to bring the light of the beach and sea into the very heart of the cottage. A high quality and well equipped kitchen and dining area is at the rear of the cottage and provides all you will need for preparing that special meal with friends and family or the space to plan the day ahead over breakfast. A secret inner courtyard with seating is a little hidden gem and provides a quiet area for those who wish to relax and read. The first floor is bright and airy. Sea views from the first floor Superking room provide a great vista on waking in the morning and a place for quiet contemplation. Three further attractive bedrooms including the master bedroom with ensuite facilities and a family bathroom are also on this floor. The fully enclosed lawn garden has a large table and chairs for enjoying alfresco dining or for simply relaxing. Direct from garden, why not take a stroll along the esplanade or simply sit and revel in the picturesque scene of happy water sport enthusiasts kite surfing and canoeing or be mesmerised by the variety of sailing boats daintily bobbing on the gentle tide. Children especially will love being so close to the beach where they can build sandcastles and palaces to their hearts content or climb the sand dunes simply for the joy of sliding back down. Sunsets at Instow can be quite amazing, especially whilst enjoying an evening drink or meal at one of the family friendly restaurants close by. A leisurely walk takes you to the award winning deli where you will find locally made produce. Their adjacent tea shop wickedly tempts you to a choice of homemade delights testing even the strongest of will-powers! During the summer a small passenger ferry runs across the estuary to the pretty fishing village of Appledore with its quaint cottages and colourful narrow streets.
The cottage offers a truly warm welcome to families, groups of friends and those wishing to bring their four legged members of the family. Opportunities for quiet relaxation, gentle walks or exhilarating activities are all on your doorstep. The Tarka Trail runs through the village and offers miles of traffic free cycleways and footpaths. Surfing at Westward Ho! just a 10 minute drive away is a must and there are plenty of surf schools offering lessons for all ages. With family attractions such as the Big Sheep and The Milky Way for the young(and young at heart!) , beautiful gardens at Tapeley Park and RHS Gardens at Rosemoor as well as Dartington Crystal at Torrington all within a 30 minutes’ drive you will find it difficult choosing what you want to do!

We love this cottage, 2nd stay and will be back. Luxury and still dog friendly with everything thing you need. A real home from home and more. Thankyou. Miss Susan Clarkson - 4th April 2019
We have just returned home from a wonderful stay at 2 Bar View and wanted to thank you personally. It's our 2nd stay at the cottage and it's by far the best cottage we have stayed in. We previously visited with our old dog Barney but sadly it was his last holiday so some 3 years later we returned with our new dog Boris for his first holiday and had the best week!! My parents came along this time and totally loved it too. Some very special memories. We want to re book again. Thank you for letting us stay and for keeping it doggie friendly!!Sue Clarkson - 29th March 2019
