Welcome to Westward Ho! Devon

Westward Ho! is a picturesque village with a quirky name, sat facing out towards the Atlantic Ocean on the North Devon coast. Born out of a development triggered by the book Westward Ho! written by Charles Kingsley in the mid 1800′s, it grew into a popular holiday destination and remains so today.

Its location at the Taw/Torridge estuary, between Hartland Point to the south and the Saunton Sands to the north, gives it a classic position and its two miles of long and wide sandy beach, known as Golden Bay, can rival anywhere in the country.


There are lots of special events being run in the area in 2018.
