Beautiful and well maintained setting. Quiet location but walking distance to all the restaurants in Westward Ho, as well as there being a great restaurant pig on the Hill just behind accommodation. We stayed two weeks and luckily got to spend most of it on the beach- but check high tide times as you could be on the rocks for a while or walking quRead moreite far to the sea but it is a beautiful beach. The cottage was ideally placed to visit other beaches, Barnstable, Nation Trust houses & clovelly. Hide

Well equipped, cosy and comfortable in an attractive setting. A good supply of hot water always available, but I recommend you take your own extra towels and tea towels.

Beautiful location, peaceful setting, great as a base for walking and close enough to the beach and Westward Ho! centre to be able to walk. The pool is a real bonus and spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Cottage was lovely and had everything that was required. The walk to the beach at Westward Ho was closer than expected, so ideally situated. Only minor issues were, the bed was uncomfortable (for us), but the bunk beds for the youngsters were fine.
