Our Westward Ho! Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Westward Ho!

Westward Ho! gets its unusual title from the Charles Kingsley novel of the same name. The success of the book prompted investment into tourism in the area and it subsequently became one of Devon’s most popular resorts.

The seaside town is situated close to Bideford, offering views of beautiful Bideford Bay, on Devon’s North coast. It’s a haven for beach lovers and offers ideal conditions for catching waves, meaning it’s a very popular place with surfers. The relaxed atmosphere of the village makes it the perfect base for those looking to escape and truly relax and unwind amidst stunning Devonshire coast and countryside.

Westward Ho! is brimming with shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes, offering plenty of variety.  Walkers will enjoy discovering the Tarka Trail and South West Coast Path, while families will love a day at the Big Sheep Adventure Park. Westward Ho! is conveniently located for those wishing to explore North Devon, with Bideford and Woolacombe both in easy reach. Find your holiday inspiration with our Westward Ho! Travel Guide.
