Lovely big house - perfect for as a large party of people ... beautiful position overlooking the Dunes, and within easy couple of minutes walk to lovely Restaurant (The Boathouse) and the Instow Arms!! Had walks on the beach and the Tarka Trail, and made a trip over to Appledore. Gorgeous house - great weekend!
