Instow North Devon
Instow North Devon is a small popular seaside resort with stunning views across the esturary towards Appledore
Instow North Devon can be reached along the Tarka Trail and a gentle cycle ride from Braunton should take a couple of hours,, just in time for lunch. Instow Arms and The Boathouse are in great locations overlooking the estuary. Would recommend the seafood at The Boathouse.
Johns of Instow and Appledore is a great Deli and restaurant with delicious fresh food and a foodie’s heaven to see such produce like smoked fish, pates, homemade quiche and artisan bread so please go and purchase a picnic for the beach or bring back for a picnic in the beautiful gardens at Holmsleigh. ,
If you don’t want to cycle or have the hassle of driving the no 21 bus will take you to Instow every 15 minutes, or there is a small car park on the sea front. The sea front is all flat and great to stroll up and down the pavement which leads straight onto the wide expanse of a beach.
The Appledore and Instow Ferry is a great way to enjoy both resorts without a car.
Instow Beach is a long stretch of soft golden sand backed by a small sand dune system. The beach runs flat against the pavement so a stroll along the side of the beach with an ice cream or step straight onto the beach and build some sand castles. Across the road you will find a row of shops art gallery and restaurants. There is a post office, railway and quay.
