Spindrift is an impressive and individually designed coastal home. Set in a quiet location only a few minutes walk from the waterfront and dune backed sandy beach of the famously charming village and water sports centre of Instow.  Sea and estuary glimpses can be enjoyed from the property and the waterfront at Instow offers glorious views across to the picturesque fishing village of Appledore.  This spacious property is furnished in a distinctive contemporary style and is well equipped throughout. Surrounded by gardens including a large open plan front lawn and a fully enclosed rear patio garden with a hot tub (available at £50 per week or part week).  A welcoming  hallway opens up to a good sized stylish and very comfortable lounge at the front of the property with a 50" wall mounted TV with Wii2 consul. A very large and superbly appointed kitchen and dining room is at the rear and opens out into the conservatory. This spacious conservatory has attractive and comfortable seating and French windows that open out onto the rear decked patio and hot tub.  With climate controlled ventilation and heating this is an ideal additional living space no matter what the season. Three attractive bedrooms on the first floor provide flexible sleeping for families and groups of friends.  The large front bedroom offers a small balcony with table and chairs offering lovely views across to the estuary and the sea beyond -  a wonderful vantage point from which you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or experience the spectacular sunsets.  A first floor shower room and superb ground floor bathroom complete this wonderful accommodation. This is a great property for enjoying pure relaxation or as a base for active pursuits and exploration of this wonderful part of North Devon.  
Instow is the centre of Britain's first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and offers a good selection of inns and restaurants and is a fine location for walking and cycling with direct access onto the Tarka Trail which runs parallel with the estuary offering miles of scenic, level pathways.  The comprehensive market town amenities of Barnstaple and Bideford and dramatic National Trust coastal footpaths toward and beyond Clovelly are less than a 10 minute scenic drive.
