17th April 2014 - "We never want to leave when the time comes! As usual we were very comfortable - Thank you for the flowers and the essentials in the fridge - so thoughful of you. The weather has been beautiful and we have loved being back in Instow and seeing that beautiful view in the sunshine. As for the sunsets they have been spectacular - looking forward to next time."

18th - 21st April 2014 - "Thank you so much for such a fantastic stay at the Sail Loft, Instow. It really is a home from home. Every detail has been thought of and nothing is too much of a problem. You really are the best hosts. I can't wait to come back again. I will definitely be booking for the summer."

24th - 27th July 2014 - "A delightful property with superb views. 5 star all the way. Many thanks."

Late July 2014 - "We are extremely impressed by the Sail Loft and will definitely book here again. We love the seaside and having just moved to London were keen to get a chance to see the Western coast so the initial taste has definitely whet our appetite for more! Cycling along the Tarka Trail and hiking near Lynmouth much recommended. Lisa, Mike and family have an excellent eye for detail and can read the mind of a holiday maker from the milk, juice, bread in fridge to the maps and really interesting historical text put together by a few locals - I feel like I learned so much about this lovely village and the surrounding area in the four days we enjoyed here. Thank you once again!"

1st - 8th August 2014 - "Enjoyed our stay in the Sail Loft - felt like home from home, extra touches were lovely - hope to be back."

9th - 12th August 2014 - "We had a really lovely time staying in the Sail Loft. The accommodation is fabulous and the finishing touches really make you feel at home. Although the weather wasn't great nothing can detract from the beautiful views."

22nd - 25th August 2014 - "Absolutely perfect Bank Holiday break. Views, location, facilities all faultless. Hope to come back some time. Recommend the Instow Arms and the ferry to Appledore particularly. Many thanks."
