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.

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.
