The old school is less than a 10 minute walk into the centre of Bideford. Where there are; takeaways, independent shops, butchers, bakeries, greengrocers, health food shop, pubs and restaurants and a supermarket.
Belluno restaurant is a 5 minute walk away in Old Town. Opposite the pannier market.
Covelly is 10 miles away. And then hartland just beyond, both fantastic for walking and exploring. Hartland was used in the BBC drama The night manager.
Abbotsham cliffs are dramatic and beautiful. Again just a short drive up the road.
The Tarka Trail is just a walk away from the apartment, from here you could bring or hire bikes - ride along the trail to Torrington. Or for a shorter ride in the other direction: Fremington quay cafe - where they have great cakes ! And award winning roast lunches on a Sunday. Back through instow where you could stop off for a light refreshment, or a Hockings ice cream.
At high tide kayaks can be hired.

We are a 15 minute drive to the newly renovated and much talked about Farmers arms in Wollsery. I would strongly suggest a visit if you like good food, and fantastic surroundings. The attention to detail is remarkable. Why not go and see what all the fuss is about. They also have a chip shop next door to the pub.

Westward Ho! Is the nearest beach : two miles of sandy beach, and a sea side promenade. Which will lead you to the South West Coast Path; stunning walks from the nice and gentle Cornborough Hills or a five hour hike to Covelly. If timed right you could get the bus back to Bideford.
Instow is a dog friendly beach all year round.
Westward Ho! Has the oldest golf course in England. And visitors are welcome.
