Instow is situated between Barnstaple and Bideford on the Taw and Torridge estuary and is home to the North Devon Yacht Club and Cricket Club. The legendary Tarka Trail, which is part of the cycle network and the Southwest Coastal footpath, runs right through the village of Instow.
Edward and Lucinda are great hosts and we were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived and we parted feeling like friends. Instow is a great village and Springfield House is a superb place for a relaxing break. We plan to return soon when we need our batteries recharging again.
