About Bruce Tulloh

Bruce and Sue Tulloh are both natives of North Devon. They have three children and seven grandchildren, which means that the cottage is often occupied during school holidays. Bruce is a retired teacher and is also actively involved in coaching runners, while Sue plays golf at Westward Ho!

Bruce Tulloh purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Bruce Tulloh chose Instow

North Devon is where we spent our childhood, so we wanted to have a holiday home near to our parents.

We love the scenery, the coast, Exmoor, and the towns - Bideford and Barnstaple.

What makes this cottage unique

There is always something to do. In the summer there is sailing, golf, surfing, prawning. When it is less sunny we go for walks on Exmoor or cycle on the Tarka Trail. The beach and the sand dunes are a constant source of enjoyment for children.
