Property code: 55340

This delightful Devon retreat is situated in the heart of the quaint seaside village of Instow, which has a beautiful beach and amenities all within easy reach, making this the perfect getaway.

Perfectly placed for village life with pubs, restaurants and a scrummy deli pretty much on the doorstep, you can step outside and rub wet noses with the locals when you stay at this property. Instow beach is just a short walk - a hound’s paradise where you can go barking mad and chase some waves! The Tarka Tail… sorry Trail, goes from the village and here begins an adventure. Back at the property, there is a comfortable balcony for watching the sunset with a glass of wine, a bowl of water and some nibbles.

This is a two-storey holiday apartment and a half, with an outstanding finish, a quirky upside-down layout and plenty of space. Leave your walking boots in the entrance to the perfectly formed kitchen and head up to the living area. Neutral colours, comfy furnishings and doors onto the balcony all enhance natural light and your relaxation. There is a small furnished patio area accessed from the kitchen or by steps down from the balcony which your pup will enjoy sitting out on. Here you can all take in the views of the sea and Appledore and Lundy while having a bite to eat.

Instow is such a great location for exploring this part of North Devon. A hidden gem is Tapeley Park Gardens, less than 2 miles, which has woodlands for walkies, a Victorian pond, a tearoom (bound to have treats), croquet lawn and the family’s pug graves dating back to 1905. Best not take the hound to visit those!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

What a gorgeous stay we had! This property is so beautifully close to Instow's beach - we adored our stay. Alongside Instow being a gorgeous village, it is a perfect base for visiting surrounding areas like Hartland Quay, Croyde, and Bude. Devon in Autumn is stunning!

A real gem of a place. The owners are so friendly and kind. The property is spotlessly clean and very cosy and comfortable. Brilliant location, two minutes walk to the beach. The dog loved it too!

Sails Loft is immaculately clean and had everything that you need for a self catering holiday. We had a comfortable stay and would highly recommend it. The hosts were friendly and the little gifts were a really nice welcome. Thank you to them for letting us stay in their lively property.

The kitchen is compact and superbly designed so that everything you could possibly want is at hand in a small space . There were even trays and a chopping board. Upstairs the converted loft space is quite stunning.

We were very impressed with the lovely welcome of a bottle of wine and chocolate brownies too. Very near the beach. Hide

Very good quality accommodation, with view of the sea which is only a two minute walk to the dog friendly beach and three pubs. Brilliant deli which also has a cafe. Bideford and Appledore are only a short drive away. Owners are very welcoming.
