Spacious 2 bedroom apartment with private balcony offering estuary views
Why Ian Lev chose Instow
We have been holidaying in Instow for over 30 years, so we have really got to know the place – this is what prompted us to search for a holiday home that we would also use on a regular basis. We really wanted a home with a view looking out over the estuary as well as being able to enjoy Instow’s spectacular sunsets and had always admired the apartments in Chandlers Court, so when this apartment came onto the market we bought it, made it ours and have enjoyed it ever since. We hope you enjoy your stay in our home as much as we enjoy our stays – it still brings a smile to our faces when we arrive, as we know we are in a wonderful place.

Quiet and relaxing
First class accomodation had everything you could wish for and spotlessly clean. Close to a beautiful sandy beach. Good pubs and restaurants nearby. We had a very relaxing weeks break. We would recommend.
Lovely apartment ,beautiful location
No. 4 The Moorings, Instow
Flat is absolutely spotlessly clean, beds really comfortable and lovely view. Regular bus route just around the corner if you didn't want to take the car. A lovely location for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
Unfortunately due to a family illness we where unable to go on are vacation.
Nice property but needs a little TLC
Good communications with Ian throughout.
Property benefitted from being in a good position in Instow and was well equipped with comfortable beds. However one of the patio doors had lost its seal and was steamed up obscuring the view. The other windows could have done with a clean. The bathroom needed some maintenance carrying out, cold tap on basin missing a spoke so difficult to turn on/off. Toilet seat lose, dodgy lock on bathroom door handle managed to lock us out of the bathroom for a while! Finally, there wasnt an information folder for the property to cover Recycling/ appliance operation and the vagaries of the tv system
It was a lovely apartment. Everything we needed was there
We had a lovely week in Instow. Very convenient for visiting our elderly relatives and having a bit of holiday time as well. We relaxed in the apartment and enjoyed the lovely view. There were places to eat in walking distance so we didn't need to take the car out all the time. We had a day in Westwood Ho, on the beach and a fun game of Crazy Golf. Part of a day in Appledore eating food and playing Uno in the pub. Relaxing in the evenings watching telly or playing board games. We also did a jigsaw which was provided. Two of the books on the bookshelf were also read. It was a really great week.
Instow is situated on the estuary served by the rivers Taw and the Torridge, between Bideford and Barnstaple. Instow has its’ own beaches and sand dunes and enjoys spectacular views of Appledore and the estuary beyond as it goes out to meet the Atlantic Ocean.
The Moorings is found on the first floor of the middle block of Chandlers Court, which is off Marine Parade. Being on the first floor the apartment allows you to take in the spectacular views, especially from the balcony where you can enjoy al-fresco eating as well as a relaxing drink as you watch the amazing sunsets at the end of each day.
Instow itself, is a pretty coastal village having it’s own local store and cafe, a hotel, the North Devon Yacht Club, North Devon Cricket Club as well as 4 local hostelries, all of which will offer you a warm welcome.
The beaches are just minutes away, where you can enjoy a typical “beach day”, ideal for sunbathing, paddling, walking and watching the sailing boats. At the far end of the first beach is the Cricket Club, where you can watch a game on many of the days in summer. Past the Cricket Club as you venture up the estuary is the second beach beyond which are many paths on open land that join up with the Tarka trail.
The Tarka trail, which is well used by both cyclists and walkers, is right on your doorstep giving you the opportunity to explore the local area between Bideford and Barnstaple as well as further afield.
Instow is the ideal place to stay in North Devon, for either a relaxing break or as a base for enjoying many activities and visiting places of interest nearby.
Local attractions include Exmoor National Park, North Devon Golf Club, Saunton Sands Golf Club, Tarka Trail Cycle Way, Westward Ho and Croyde as well as Dartington Crystal, Tapeley Hall, the towns of Bideford, Barnstaple and Appledore
