Description

This superb waterside property has far-reaching views over the estuary to the pretty fishing village of Appledore. Sleeping eight people, Linwood has been beautifully decorated to provide contemporary holiday accommodation and provides plenty of space for everyone to get together. There is a superb decked area with outside seating overlooking the estuary which is accessed from bi-folding doors in the living area and it’s easy to imagine having a mug of coffee in the morning and watch the boating world go by.

Inside the open-plan living area has leather settees, a large dining table and a well-equipped kitchen with a useful utility room. There is a separate, additional living room with a television, Playstation 3 and DVD player – a perfect place for the younger members of the group to have their own space. All four bedrooms are well-designed and provide flexible sleeping arrangements and there is a family bathroom and an en-suite shower room.

Linwood is a short walk from the centre of Instow - a village which needs to be to explored at a gentle pace. Stroll along its pretty front to drink in the views of the estuary or pause to admire the beachfront cricket ground and remarkable thatched pavilion – one of the oldest in the country. Given Instow’s position on the estuary, it’s no surprise that the big event of the year is a maritime one. The Appledore & Instow Regatta, first held in 1885, 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 walking and cycling paths and Instow is right on it. It follows the route of the old Southern Railway track which halted at Instow Station (amazingly it linked the village with Waterloo Station in London!) before continuing on to Bideford.
