About the Local Area (Instow)

The Galley Instow

Nestled along the Rivers Taw and Torridge estuary in North Devon, Instow is a small village that offers a glimpse into the rich history and culture of the region.

With its close relationship to the nearby town of Bideford, Instow played a significant role in local trade and commerce growth.

Today, visitors can enjoy the area’s natural beauty and various attractions such as the sandy beach, coastal paths, nature reserves, historic church, local deli and places to eat & drink.

Instow Beach

Instow Beach is a perfect place for a paddle and for the dog to roam free, with only minor restrictions during the summer months.

The beach has fine yellow sand and seems to go on forever. There are sand dunes to explore, even a small stream that enters near the north end.

Instow Parking

There is seafront parking along the beach edge, plus much more to the north end of the beach.

Things to do in Instow

Even during the winter/spring, there is often a mobile cafe called “The Galley” parked up outside the Commodore Hotel which services hot drinks and simple snacks.

Instow is the perfect place to have a drink or some food and watch the sunset over Appledore and Bideford.
