5/5 Excellent

Ideal for cycling the tarka trail.
The flat is clean and has everything you need. The TV doesn't work very well so ensure you bring other things to do. There are a selection of games, books,DVD. The bike shed is fairly full and not locked. But managed to squeeze 2 bikes in, reassured a little that people wouldn't leave them there if a problem. Had a lovely hols, thank you 😊

5/5 Excellent

Spot on location.
Clean and tidy apartment, nice touch to open fridge to find a pint of milk, coffee and tea bags, also to have dishwasher tablets/washing up liquid/washing machine tablets, home from home. Only down side, the bush by the key box needs pruning, and the tv has a mind of its own some times.😀

5/5 Excellent

Autumn holiday
The property is well situated. We enjoyed walking along the coast path to the local restaurants. The bus service is good from Instow.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable, clean, well set out and equipped flat in good location

Excellent North Devon Apartment
This apartment was perfect for us for our holiday this year. We are a family of 4 with children aged 1 and 5. The location was fantastic, looking out over the estuary, with the beach only a few minutes walk away. The apartment had everything we needed and was well equipped. It is also the perfect base for exploring other parts of North Devon. The short ferry ride from Instow to Appledore is definitely work doing our kids loved it. We had an excellent holiday and would live to return and stay here again in the future.
