“Beachside haven in cute estuarine village of Instow”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a modern house about 100 yards from the beach at Instow. The upper floor is mainly open plan and is full of light. There are two balconies to enjoy the sun through the day. The views onto the strikingly tidal estuary are good if not continuous. The house is pleasantly furnished and has a large double garage which is real handy if you have water sports stuff. Mattresses basic. Any matters arising were quickly dealt with by the owners. It would not feel crowded with eight adults. Ate well at the Boathouse restaurant which is 150yds away. Firmly recommended.

“Fantastic house in excellent peaceful location”
Reviewed 10 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The Dunes property is ideal for families looking for a relaxing location and includes all the modern comforts needed to make for a good time even if the weather is poor. We stayed with our 2 children aged 14 and 10 and despite the disappointing weather , we enjoyed the house and surrounding area. The bedrooms are all a good size , the house is fully equipped with everything you need , the views are lovely (especially the sunsets over Appledore) and having the beach over the road is a bonus . We enjoyed our daily family games of pool and darts in the garage and the hot tub came in very handy as well . The house was spotlessly clean and tidy and both Jill and Sue were both very helpful.
Shame about the weather but had a very nice time at the Dunes and would certainly visit again and recommend to others.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 24 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Stayed at The Dunes with 7 other adults and two children. I cannot fault the house in any way. It was perfect! The house itself was well maintained, extremely clean and had the most amazing views of the sea. The living areas were large and open planned which was great. The hot-tub outside was amazing, perfect for when the weather wasn't as nice and great even when it was hot outside.

We will definitely be back next year :)

“Excellent accomodation,spacious and comfortable, in a great location.”
Reviewed 28 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Booking on line was easy and whenever it was nessecary to phone our enquires were dealt with quickly and effeciently.The property is finished to a very high standard and the dining/living areas are very spacious which suited the 4 generations of our family that stayed here.The hot tub is a great addition which we all enjoyed.The local restaurant which is in walking distance had a good menu and and we enjoyed a meal ther at the weekend.The public house also in walking distance had a really good atmosphere and had a good range of meals available including a take away service which we used one night.

The area had something for everyone across the age range of our family [3 to 84 years] ranging from beaches, designer outlets, RHS Rosemore and cycle hire on the Tarka Trail.

Theres nothing much that we disliked about our holiday - better weather conditions would have been preffered but if you had to stay inside this accomodation has more than enough room to allow everyone to do whatever they wanted.

It would not suprise me if I were asked to book this property again next year
