Stars Cove is a delightful apartment overlooking the Taw and Torridge estuary. The beach is less than 100 yards from the front door, while the village of Instow is a short stroll. The property is on the top floor of a two storey detached building, and offers comfort and style in abundance. The roomy open plan layout makes good use of the space with views across the water. Patio doors open on to a balcony complete garden furniture so you can enjoy al fresco dining with the estuary backdrop and views across to the historic ship-building port of Appledore. It is also a great spot to watch the sun go down over the river. From the lounge an arched opening leads to an up-to-date kitchen/diner. Two attractive bedrooms both have views of the mature gardens. An eye-catching, fully tiled black and white bathroom completes the accommodation. Guests enjoy shared use of landscaped grounds with lawns and shrubs. A walk along Instow 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 drive away is Westward Ho! It is the only place in Britain with an explanation mark in its name, but there's more to it than quirky grammar. Golden Bay beach is a long strip of sand backed by a pebble ridge. On the northern end, you can access the Northern Burrows, a scientifically important area which juts out into the mouth of the estuary. It boasts sand dunes, salt marsh, grassland, rocky shore and is teeming with wildlife
