Willow Cottage is a delightful bungalow with a beautiful mature garden backing onto woodland and within a 20-minute level walk to the centre of Instow. Sleeping four people, the property is next to the friendly owner’s own house and shares the use of the garden, but has its own private patio with outside furniture. A useful entrance hallway provides somewhere to put coats and boots, which leads into the open-plan lounge/kitchen. This spacious room has a comfy settee and chair to relax in at the end of an energetic day and a well-equipped kitchen. A light and airy conservatory has a circular dining table and a further settee. Patio doors lead out onto the patio and then into the garden. There are two bedrooms in the bungalow – a Double and a Twin – as well as a shower room which has hand rails and one shallow step up to it.
A walk of about 20 minutes takes you to the centre of Instow which lies within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Instow enjoys pretty views across the estuary and a walk along the front takes you past the beachfront cricket ground with its magnificent thatched pavilion, one of the oldest in the country. The big event of the year is Appledore and Instow Regatta. First held in 1885, it 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 paths for walkers and cyclists and Instow is right on it. It follows the route of the old Southern Railway track which halted at Instow Station, linking the village with Waterloo Station in London. A short boat trip over the water takes you to Appledore which has a small range of pubs, shops and galleries. Historically celebrated for its artists and craftspeople the village now boasts an arts festival and the Appledore Crafts Company, an artist’s co-operative showcasing a broad range of arts and crafts from ceramics and photography to jewellery and painting.
