A seaside escape

Named after the Charles Kingsley novel, Westward Ho! is the only place in the UK with an exclamation mark in its name. The village is renowned for its Pebble Ridge, a natural phenomenon which runs the entire length of the beach and protects the Northam Burrows, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the Royal North Devon Golf Club - the oldest links course in England.

The village itself is an active oasis for families, with surf hire, arcades, crazy golf and go-karts on the beach, making Westward Ho! a great choice to visit during the school holidays, like May or October half-term. Many restaurants, such as Moran’s, enjoy unspoilt, panoramic views, while there are scenic cafes and pubs a-plenty: The Pier House has a sea-facing verandah protected by a glass windbreak while The Fairway Buoy’s balcony is so close to the sea, it almost feels as if you are on a ship.
