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.

The chalet was well equipped and very clean. The children felt cosy and safe and enjoyed exploring the area. The location was super to enjoy the end of Autumn sea before the Winter set in. We thoroughly enjoyed our surfing and the proximity to the sea was perfect, not to mention the lovely glimpses of the sea you would achieve through the chalet windows. A really beautiful contrast to our moorland home. The sound of the sea at night was wonderfully lulling for us all. To summarise, a super little chalet, wonderful owner and perfect location for beach and exploration of a great area! Thank you. The Kerswells - October 2017

The cottage was well equipped, clean and tidy. Lovely comfy bed and the views from the lounge and bedroom are fantastic (even on a rainy day!) Found some new walks and had nice meals at the Pig on the Hill and The Pier House. We will return.
