Instow- things to do and see

Instow is a pretty, unspoilt seaside village with large stretches of sandy beaches and dunes. Fishermen’s cottages nestle against shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants.  The village store and delicatessen are superb and very soon Johns will add a cafe.

Instow is on the estuary where the rivers Taw and Torridge meet, between the villages of Westleigh and Yelland and on the opposite bank of Appledore.  The Tarka Trail passes through Instow, providing an easy means for people to arrive by foot or on bike.  This section of the Trail is also part of the South West Coast Path offering longer walks along the coast. 

 

The beach is a haven for dog walkers as there are no restrictions throughout the year for walking dogs on the beach, of course dog owners are expected to pick up after their dogs!

The North Devon Cricket Club must have one of the best positions, overlooking the estuary and Appledore.  Founded in 1823 and moved to its present position in 1836.

The North Devon Yacht Club located in Instow has regular racing during the summer and an annual regatta.
