Adding to the entertainment options, the garage features a games room with a table tennis table for a little competition during your stay and the private hot tub in the garden is an ideal spot to relax after a day of exploring.
Surfers, beach lovers and those in search of a little R&R will feel right at home at Devon’s Samphire House. Only a stone’s throw away from Westward Ho! village and beach, there is so much to see and do without the need for a car - perfect for large groups wanting a hassle-free getaway. Head out for an afternoon of rock pooling, testing your luck in the arcades, trying out one of the many water sports or relaxing in a seaside café before heading home to watch the sunset from the balcony and for a little evening swim!
