Overlooking Instow Beach is the three bedroom North Yeo, a first floor apartment with lift and off road car parking.

Perfect location

After spending many years holidaying in Devon, this is by far our favourite destination and cottage. We have been twice now and love it even more. Perfect for the dog and also for our elderly parents who often accompany us ... the unusual lift being particularly useful. The views are amazing, perfect on a stormy day, which is often for us as we go out of season. We love the quaintness of the cottage and history behind it. It is comfortably equipped and wouldn’t wish any changes. Looking forward to our next visit.



Most spectacular breakfast view

We have stayed in a previous cottage with my favourite cottages last year but this one was in the most wonderful position.on the beach straight across the road,the most lovely position for breakfast and evening drinks.
A quaint grade 11 listed cottage which doesn’t loose its era but is comfortable and clean .we would highly recommend it .
The top apartment is quite steep stairs for elderly but there is a very ingenious lift. Easy access to westward ho but Instow has a good beach and has been left alone to be natural




Great location & views

We had a lovely restful holiday, which is what we both really needed after after my husband spent two months in hospital earlier in the year.

The apartment was nice, with great views. Bathroom & kitchen refurbed which were great, new carpets throughout, great patio & furniture and small garden for the dogs.

We would stay again, but we have some recommendations to make it more enjoyable.
The lounge and bedrooms “really” need updating, new modern furniture in all of them.
Two couches would be great. New window coverings.
New beds with better quality mattresses. Option for a summer duvet.
The kitchen had a smoke alarm, which should be a heat alarm, so when we used the grill the alarm went off.
The windows all need attention, not easy to open.
A compendium with info on the bins, recycling etc.
Parking not great, if you have a big car. The central grass ornament area could be with being made smaller or taken out.

Hi Karen, thanks for your review and glad you had a lovely time. I have passed on the comments to the owner however this is the first season that the apartment has been available as a holiday cottage and the owners are aware that it needs some modernising but need the bookings to pay for the upgrades and the price of the apartment reflects that, so I think your 3/5 for value is a bit harsh. Hopefully by the time you come again some more refurbishments will have been done. Cheers Harry
