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.

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.

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 apartment fulfilled all our expectations, the internal design added to the feeling of brightness

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              We were attracted to this particular apartment for its location and the balcony, being elderly and my wife having mobility difficulties we had envisaged "living" outside, unfortunately the weather prevented that . However, we did enjoy our stay exploring the surrounding towns and villages and their attractions. Also meet some interesting local people. The art gallery in Bideford was well worth finding. In spite of the weather this apartment gave us all the facilities and comfort we expect from an holiday and would certainly recommend to anyone going to North Devon

                                                              Lovely accommodation

                                                              We stayed 10 nights in this cottage and had a lovely time. The cottage is very well equipped, and in an ideal, quiet location to sightsee Devon and Cornwall. It was very clean and cozy with a lovely nautical theme throughout. We stayed as a couple, but it is suitable for a young family as there is a play area and good sized swimming pool. I'm sure children would love the animals. The weather wasn't brilliant during our stay, so we didn't use the pool. On the morning we did try to sit around the pool area, there were no loungers available, despite a very helpful gentleman looking high and low for them. There were only chairs, which were a bit uncomfortable and that is the only negative we could comment on. Access to the property is along a narrow road, which takes some getting used to when you encounter traffic coming the other way. We found it easier to use the road down to the property from Westward Ho! Great holiday in a well-cared for and very comfortable cottage.

                                                              A little piece of heaven

                                                              My Son and I stayed for 10 days in this lovely apartment in June/July 2016. I was so happy with everything - it was just perfect. Lauren has a keen eye for tasteful decor and has thought of all the little touches to make you feel both welcome and special. The views from the balcony were stunning and sitting in the lounge area and in bed gives the impression of being on board a ship - so relaxing. The place is very secure and there is underground parking so no stress of findng a place to park your car. We had access straight onto the promenade and lovely eating places. Westward Ho is a great holiday destination for families and couples. I would not hesitate to recommend this to my family and friends and will definitely be returning. Thank you Lauren!!
