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.

Comfortable beds, TV, wifi, all mod cons. Beach is close by and a short drive brings you to the small village. Quiet area, friendly people, ideal for the older person. I've known Westwood Ho! for many years and love the quiet friendly atmosphere. This chalet is top notch accommodation. Would recommend.
