When most people are asked to picture in their head the perfect Devon holiday cottage, they will see something very much like Inglenook Cottage, which very much looks the part and includes everything you could need on your holiday. Located in the beating heart of Instow surrounded by equally attractive properties, this charming cottage is a gem.

Oak beams and ledge and brace doors are among the traditional features along with, as the name suggests, an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, giving the cottage a warm feeling and the promise of cosy nights in during the cooler months of the year. There is a well equipped modern kitchen with Butler sink and a quarry-tiled floor in the conservatory leads you out to sunny enclosed garden with views down to the sea over the estuary. There are two lovely bedrooms upstairs both served by a stunning family bathroom with a roll top bath.

A leisurely 20 minute stroll gets you to the beach and Marine Parade, which has a wide selection of pubs, restaurants, a delicatessen and the yacht club. Wander along its pretty front to drink in the views of the estuary or pause to admire the beachfront cricket ground and remarkable thatched pavilion – one of the oldest in the country. Given Instow’s position on the estuary, it’s no surprise that the big event of the year is a maritime one. The Appledore and Instow Regatta, first held in 1885, is a relaxed but competitive event that promotes old traditions of boat-building while hosting lots of nautical fun and excitement. The Tarka Trail is one of the country’s longest traffic-free walking and cycling paths and Instow is right on it. It follows the route of the old Southern Railway track which halted at Instow Station (amazingly it linked the village with Waterloo Station in London) before continuing on to Bideford. The bathing and surfing beaches of Westward Ho! Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe are a short drive away
