The sought after coastal village of Instow is just 1.6 miles and offers excellent primary/junior school as well as general village amenities including shops, post office, popular pubs and restaurants as well as the beach, cricket club and yacht club.

These offer potential to create additional living accommodation such as in-law annexe, letting units etc subject to planning, or could be utilised for business purposes, possibly as a therapy suite or similar.
