Smugglers Cottage

Snuggled amongst the oldest part of Instow village. Once the brew house for an old pub and with a one off shape and character, it is approached by a passageway opposite the Wayfarer Inn that passes beneath a cottage and short path to Smugglers Cottage. Instow has a great choice of good pubs and restaurants and is only a short stroll along the private pedestrian area in which this sheltered cottage nestles.

Accessed via a quirky foot tunnel leading into a shared passageway, the ground floor features a well equipped kitchen and seating area. A downstairs shower room with washing machine is also just off the shared passageway. Doors lead out from the seating area to a private courtyard where BBQs and lazy evenings are a given. Stairs lead from the kitchen up into a cosy lounge space with gorgeous views over the dunes and estuary. Off the lounge are the two bedorooms, one twin and one master with en suite.
