Pretty Village

Such a pretty village and the local beaches are lovely. Try John's Deli, a great place for breakfast, lunch, cakes etc.

Have Cream Tea at the Commodore Hotel

The Commodore Hotel offers Cream Tea for non-residents. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy a good cream tea as well as a gorgeous view across the estuary. If the tide is coming up and the sun is setting, this is a marvelous experience.

Beautiful, sleepy Instow

Instow is a pretty little village and makes a perfect base for exploring North Devon. It retains a sedate pace of life, perfect for winding down from the rat race. Johns' deli provides everything you need to spoil yourself at breakfast time, and there are a couple of restaurants to spoil you at suppertime. The Tarka Trail is on your doorstep and it would be rude not to hire some bikes and meander through the pretty Devon countryside for an hour or two.
