The beach at Instow

Instow
Map ref SY4730

This pretty estuary village, is more low key than most of its close neighbours, lies at the wide junction of the River Taw and the River Torridge. Instow has a gently sloping sandy beach, backed by low sand dunes.

Instow is well known for its scenic vistas across the rivers, making it a favourite haunt for artists. It is also a place for watersports, fishing and sailing enthusiasts. During the summer you can take the ferry, from Instow's 17th Century quay, across to Appledore.

Tapeley Park

Tapeley Park stands on a hill overlooking Instow and the estuary. Tapeley Park is the home of the Christie family, well known for their operatic connections and their links to Glyndebourne. The House has a collection of operatic costumes, as well as fine furnishings and porcelain.

The gardens at Tapeley Park are the main attraction. The grounds have a stunning collection of tender shrubs and palms, all laid out in terraces on the sheltered hillside - presenting the visitor with stunning panoramas of the gardens and the estuary beyond.
