A holiday rental home in Instow is perfect for a secluded beach getaway.

Instow makes a wonderful holiday destination for many reasons. It is near many popular attractions, yet is not subject to the large crowds as some other areas are. Even during the warmest months, the beaches are not very crowded and peace and quiet reign.

Things to do on holiday to Instow

Those who enjoy the out of doors will find Instow to be a holiday paradise. It has its own sandy beach that is not well-visited meaning that you can choose a prime spot and not worry about having sand kicked all over.

Within a very short distance there is a wide array of activities such as surfing, cycling and sailing. There are wonderful spots for hiking both in Instow and in the nearby Exmoor National Park. The Tarka Trail is a favourite amongst cyclists. Whilst it includes a total of nearly 290 km, the trail can be tackled in smaller sections, making it a great destination for cyclists of all skill levels. During the summer, you can hop a ferry to Appledore and have even more attractions and activities at your fingertips.

Places to visit on holiday to Instow
