Upper Instow Beach Cottage is a quirky 3-bedroom dog-friendly apartment that accommodates up to 5. The first floor apartment is perfectly located right on the waterfront overlooking the beach at the very popular North Devon village of Instow, which has everything you need within a 5 minute walk, including places to eat such as the Instow Arms and The Boat House, which are just 200m away and offer some of the finest food and local ales.
The pretty estuary beach is right opposite Upper Instow Beach Cottage and most of it is dog-friendly all year round, it is also a great beach for building sand castles. The bustling village is home to art galleries and an excellent deli plus many more great pubs, which can be found along the Marine Parade, which leads to the sailing club and the Tarka Trail, a largely traffic-free cycleway and footpath.
Upper Instow Beach Cottage is located off Marine Parade and has private parking. You access the apartment from the ground floor, where there is a large entrance lobby with cupboards and storage facilities and loads of room for coats and boots. There is a small lift that takes you to the first floor or there are stairs, however, they are a little steep and narrow, so may be difficult to navigate if not able-bodied.
Once you are on the first floor the apartment has a landing area that leads to a bright and spacious living room with large windows along the sea-facing wall offering wonderful views of the beach, across to Appledore and the open sea beyond. The living room has sofas and chairs and a coffee table plus a flat-screen TV. There is a door, which leads to a lovely terrace with table and chairs and amazing views across the beach and Appledore. Beyond the terrace, down a few steps is a small private garden.
The kitchen can be found to the rear of the apartment and has a lovely contemporary feel plus everything you need for family cooking, including a fridge freezer, an electric cooker and a microwave. Next to the kitchen is a useful pantry and opposite is the dining room with gothic style table and chairs and views over the garden.
There are 3 bedrooms at the apartment, these include a double, a twin and a single. All the bedrooms have wardrobes and handy wash-basins. The family bathroom is found at the centre of the apartment and has a bath with overhead shower with massive "waterfall" shower-head, a wash-basin and a loo.
Outside Upper Instow Beach Cottage has a lovely terrace with table and chairs perfect for alfresco dining with stunning views over the beach, Appledore and the sea beyond. There are some steps down to a small, pretty garden. At the front of the house, there is a garage with a fresh water tap ideal for washing off surfboards or muddy boots.
