Instow, Taw and Torridge Estuary, North Devon’s Biosphere Reserve

Instow‘s sandy beach is easily accessed and popular with families. Since Instow’s development as a Victorian resort the beach has become the focus of the village; old Instow was centred on its parish church. Like many ancient coastal settlements, the village was sited inland, largely out of the sea and Viking raiders. Instow is the HQ of the North Devon  Yacht Club  – the Taw/Torridge estuary is ideal for sailing. Boat trips and boat hire are available.
