Tourist guide to Westward Ho!

Westward Ho! is a laid-back coastal resort with a spectacular sandy beach and lively village centre, just north of the larger market antown of Bideford in Devon. The village itself is a welcoming community of  surf shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, an abundance of holiday cottages and accommodation. The beach is a stunning, underdeveloped 2 mile stretch of golden sands, backed by an unusual pebble ridge and the wild dunes and grasslands of the Northam Burrows Country Park. To the back of all this is The Royal Westward Ho! Golf Club, the oldest links course in the country and a Championship course.

Westward Ho! faces west into Bideford Bay with breathtaking views across the Atlantic Ocean, towards Lundy Island. Accessed just off the A30 or the ‘Atlantic Highway’ that follows the coasts of North Devon and Cornwall, a holiday cottage in Westward Ho! provide an excellent base for exploring both these two South West counties.
