Great location for views and really relaxing sitting on the balcony or on the mezzanine floor looking out to sea. The house is very well equipped although beds could be a bit more comfortable and the bedrooms would benefit from blackout blinds. The grounds are immaculate and the staff very friendly and helpful. To get to the beach it is a five minute walk along the promenade to the main slipway unless you walk over the rocks which is just below the house. The tidal pool is very close and it was popular on warmer days. Follow the promenade to get onto the coast path for a lovely walk. Kids enjoyed surf lesson with North Devon Surf school and then hired a board to practise. Lots of nice places to eat. We cycled parts of the Tarmac Trail from Bideford. The route to Instoe along the estuary is very scenic and we had a lovely meal at the pub.
