Make a holiday rental or self catering cottage in Westward Ho!, Devon your home away from home

Pub quiz fans will already know Westward Ho! as the only English place name to have punctuation in its official name. However, for those that care little for such facts, there is a huge amount else to get excited about a self catering holiday in Westward Ho!. Named after a book of the same name in the mid 1800’s, Westward Ho! lies on some two miles of golden sand in North Devon.

Things to do in Westward Ho!, Devon

The large expanse of sand dunes that stretch out in front of Westward Ho! are home to a huge range of bird species, which make them a real favourite through which to walk. The beach is of course one of the main attractions on a self catering Westward Ho! holiday. The beach stretches for miles, with its famous pebble rise running through the middle. Life guards patrol the beach during the summer months, and there are numerous chances to go swimming, sailing or surfing along the beach.

Walkers and riders are perfectly catered for on holiday in Westward Ho!. The Tarka Trail and the South Western Coastal Path both extend from the village, providing visitors to Westward Ho! with timeless trails into the countryside.

The Royal North Devon Golf Club is a great asset for those on a self catering holiday in Westward Ho!. The nightlife in Westward Ho! is good fun, but not raucous, as there are only a couple of pubs and restaurants. Those looking for a good night out have only to travel to Bideford, a few short miles up the road.

Brilliant apartment and location

5 of 5
The apartment is well equipped and immaculately clean,The corner sofa is exceptionally comfortable, with adjustable height backrests. The new bed is very comfortable. The views are stunning and better still you can see them from the sofa too. My only word of caution would be to wheelchair users! My husband is one, you do need to be able to manage some walking as the bathrooms are not easy to manage in a wheelchair, although the rest of the apartment and the building are fine and will certainly go back again. A special mention too for Sandra, the cleaner/caretaker, she is lovely, friendly, does a great meet and greet job and couldn't be more helpful.

Absolutely fabulous.

Amazing property, everything you could want including a sea view, yes a real sea view, we have come across so many who said this was there and it was not, this time, we could drink beer, too much I know, and watch the sun set over the ocean and it was really there. Amazing.
