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 property was brilliant, it had plenty of space, quality fixtures & fittings, was spotlessly clean & had everything you could possibly need. Location is spot on for visiting surrounding areas i.e Ilfracombe & Woolacombe & the local attractions. The view as you walk into the living space is amazing, the photos don't do it justice. The owners are very helpful if you need anything. I would not hesitate to return & would highly recommend to others.

The first thing we did on arriving was walk out on to the deck - we were stunned by the view. The cottage is lovely, plenty of space for the family. Comfy beds and sofas and all the equipment you need to self cater - we even cooked a roast dinner one day. Two bathrooms is very handy and the shower is superb. Big soft towels are provided. The walk down to Westward Ho! is 10 mins, but be warned very steep on the way back. Cream Tea at The Tea on the Green was amazing. Lovely Italian meal in Cafe Italia next door. For superb gastro pub food, try The Pig on the Hill. Overall we loved Old Saltys and hope to come back.
