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 coastal path is especially popular, but the walks towards Northam Burrows Country Park should not be overlooked either.

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.

Places to visit on holiday in Westward Ho!, Devon

The small surfing village of Croyde is just 6 miles along the coast from a holiday cottage in Westward Ho!. Croyde is a beautiful little village, with an excellent pub where surfers gather to eat, drink and exchange stories of their mornings sport. With three beaches facing in three different directions, Croyde and the wonderfully long, open beach at Saunton Sands are a surfers dream.

Travel to Westward Ho!, Devon

If you are going on a self catering holiday to Westward Ho!, then having the use of a car during your stay is strongly recommended. There are good road connections, but no train station, except for the one at Barnstaple, a few miles away.

It is clean, bright and airy with the best views over Westward Ho! beach. So lovely to be able to relax on the balcony with a cuppa and enjoy the views. (yes, even at the end of October). We didn't close the blinds once,because it is so lovely to wake up to the changing sky and with the sea just below you - bliss! The Penthouse is well equipped with all you need for a good self-catering stay. it was nice to be welcomed by Andy (from the management company) and to know that he, or a member of his team, was available if we had any problems/queries. The building is secure with access to all entrance via a key fob. The location is great, just a few minutes walk from all the facilities that Westward Ho! has to offer. We hope to come back one day soon.
