Recently I required accommodation in this lovely part of the world. I chose The Wayfarers, mainly because it is dog friendly and not expensive. It is tucked away in a side street at the end of Instow sea front but only about 30m from the beach. This is also a plus if you have a dog, the beach is dog friendly too. Naturally all the usual pet hygiene rules apply on the sandy beach.
The inn itself turned out to be just my sort of pub. Extremely good food and an excellent choice of alcoholic beverages. Despite the time of year, business seemed to be booming. Accommodation was fully booked and each evening the bar was heaving with locals and visitors eating and drinking. Whilst mentioning food, should you be staying and tempted to order the full English breakfast. Be prepared not to eat for a very long time after, it is massive, at least two of everything
My, and my little dog’s room was actually a large family room with a queen sized bed, bunk beds and pleasant furniture. There was also a large en suite bathroom. It was extremely cold during my stay but the very efficient heating was left on all the time. Just one small downside, could definitely have done with a radiator in the bathroom too.
Unfortunately, the inn does not have any private parking. However, there is ample on street parking and it was not cause for concern.
Overall, an extremely friendly, clean and pleasant place to stay or even just go for a drink or a meal. If you intend eating, I think it would be sensible to give them a call on 01271 860342 and make sure there will be a table for you. It seems to be a very popular establishment.
