Instow is a picturesque village situated on the estuary where the rivers Taw and Torridge meet. It commands panoramic views of the estuary, the sea and the surrounding countryside. There are a number of pubs and restaurants within walking distance – The Quay, The Commodore, Instow Arms, The Boathouse and the Wayfarer.

The village has a very well stocked deli shop (Johns) and Post Office on Marine Parade just around the corner for the cottage.

A small passenger ferry service, a Community Enterprise run by volunteers, operates between Instow and Appledore on the opposite shore, from April to October. Operating 2 hours either side of high tide, last year it carried over 24,000 passengers, plus bicycles, and dogs.

The Tarka Trail passes through Instow, letting you explore the area by foot or on bike. This section of the Trail is also part of the South West Coast Path, offering longer walks along the coast.
