Excellent property in a good location for beach walks with the dogs & walking into westward ho for a good variety of cafes, pubs & restaurants. Lovely welcome pack from the owners. This was our second visit & we would gladly return.

We loved this ?? it has everything you need to enjoy your stay, and so light and airey, the open plan zone upstairs is great for chilling out and having meals together and very comfortable enabling you to unwind. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need, we plan to come back again. Keith , Debbie, Charlotte, ric,& baby Harley ?? xx

If you want a wonderful house with great dog walks, an amazing beach, peace and quiet and an incredible welcome then this is the cottage for you! We loved our stay here and will be coming back. Thank you Emma and Warren for making us so welcome.

We stayed as a family of 5, with a grandparent, 2 teenagers and 2 small dogs. The Willows us amazingly located for the beach and the area known as The Burrows as well as the Coastal path. We were unlucky with the weather but the amazing WiFi kept the teens occupied along with the games selection. We still walked to Appledore along the coast path, ate at The Beaver. Visited Clovelly and ate at The New Inn, walked the Kipling Tors and ate at The Thatched Inn, walked up Hartland Point and ate at the lovely The Hoops at Abbotsham. Definitely try their Orchard Pig cider on tap. The teens loved the arcades at Westward Ho! only a few minutes walk along with the great So Sweet shop and the delicious cakes from Bessys bakery. Warren and Emma were very helpful and left scones and milk etc for our arrival. The Willows was beautifully clean and well thought out and we would love to come back....maybe not in a storm this time!

Go there, it's stunning

Fantastic! Hosts thought of everything for our stay. The welcome hamper, flowers, fizz and everything from cleaning products to washing. First class comfort and we are already planning our next year break at The Willows.

Thank you so much for your lovely review of The Willows - the welcome hamper sounds like a great treat to arrive to! If you need any assistance planning your next trip please do not hesitate to get in touch. Sarah, Customer Support

Very clean excellent facilities the owners were very welcoming and made sure we had what we needed before during and after our stay

The Willows was immaculately clean. The location & proximity to the beach is great. Appreciated all of the extra touches like fresh flowers, scones & Prosecco, extra towels, beach & dog towels, dog bowls & poo bags. There were even wet suits & bodyboards for your use! The 2nd fridge freezer & the utility area was very useful. Garden & patio are completely enclosed so great for the dogs, who had a great time! All in all we had a very comfortable & relaxing stay. Emma & Warren, the owners, were nearby but not intrusive , it was obvious from their communication that they really wanted us to have a good stay, which we did, thank you

The Willows truly reflects its owners and the love and dedication they put into building it. A home from home. It’s as warm and welcoming as it’s owners and hosts Emma and Warren. Every detail is thought of to ensure the perfect holiday. So many media options for a rainy day, books board games etc. Great location for brighter days with the beach a short walk away. Local amenities again just a short walk away. Also a great place to explore the wider local area with some great places nearby. Highly recommended.

Above and beyond to make you feel so welcome. It's definitely a home from home property. Everything you could possibly need for your holiday and loved that the beach and amenities are a short stroll away.

Fabulous property in a great location with High Burrows at the end of the road ideal for dog walks and access to the beach. Great outdoor space where we spent most of our time as the weather was so lovely. Everything has been thought of here, it is just lovely :)

We had a lovely time here, loved the closeness of the beach and other amenities. My grandchildren spent hours chucking huge pebbles into the sea from the pebble ridge at high tide.

Awesome property in a great location. Clean and well furnished. We were well looked after by Emma and Warren.

We stayed over the new year period after what has been a terrible year and it was I have to say the highlight of our whole year! We felt totally chilled and relaxed from the minute to got into the property. It is very tastefully decorated, whilst not being overly fussy and super comfortable. The only thing it lacked was a log fire, but we quickly found that the YOUTUBE version of a crackling fire felt just about the same :>) The little extras were also very appreciated and very thoughtful. We will definitely keep it in our stay again list and recommend as a lovely home from home to anyone looking to have a peaceful, restful and re-energizing stay.

Had a fantastic week staying at the Willows, 5 adults and a dog, despite the weather being against us. Easy access to the Northam burrows 1 minute away, and beach is over pebble ridge. 10 minutes to center of Westward Ho. The Willows has everything you could want on a self-catering holiday, it really is as good as it looks in the photos. We shall be returning

Lovely welcome from the owner who also provided scones & prosecco on our arrival. Everything you could want for a comfortable stay is provided and the modern cottage is close to beach and the town.

We had a wonderful time at The Willows. It is perfectly located for walking across the Burrows to the beach. Westward Ho! Is a lovely village with every amenity

I would definitely recommend this property. Furnished to a high standard, exceptionally clean and in a beautiful location.

Second year staying at The Willows and I can say it won’t be the last. I absolutely love it there.

We had a very enjoyable holiday at the Willows. The Willows is a lovely place to stay for 2 weeks but maybe impractical to live there perminantly. Great to be close to the town/beach/Northam Burrows, the owners were available whenever we needed them and went out of the way to provide garden access to a gym for my son. Very dog friendly location having access to the Burrows and the beach within 5 mins walk. Enclosed garden was a big plus for having a dog that can't normally be off lead. It was nice to get a welcome pack with delicious scones, prosecco and little extras like complimentary tea, coffee and condiments provided.

Brilliant cottage, in brilliant location, with brilliant cleanliness standards and brilliant owners.
Cant fault anything about it.

Lovely house we had a great holiday.

anyone wanting to stay in westwood ho and want a relaxing comfortable place to stay its perfect

Emma & Warren were extremely welcoming and have made their rental property stunning. They have gone above and beyond with the "extras" (dog treats & towels, scones, Prosecco, toiletries, even wetsuits!). The house and garden were spotless. The information pack covered everything, places to go, things to see, where to eat etc. A brilliant location and gorgeous house. Thank you!

All of the places we have stayed with yourselves have been brilliant. The Willows is yet another to add to the list.

The Willows would be hard to beat for holiday accommodation. We all love it. From the youngest to the eldest.

We shall return again next summer. We will look forward to it. Our grandchildren are already asking if we’ve booked. We have!

Beautifully decorated and so many extra lovely finishing touches. A true home from home. Everything good quality. Excellent tech/TV etc. Spotlessly clean!

Very, generous welcome package and so many lovely extra 'bits' - from tea, coffee etc, to cleaning products and soap/hand cream and fresh flowers.

Really kind and welcoming owners.

This house is simply beautiful. Finished to a high standard and perfect attention to detail. The owners are lovely being there to welcome us and the welcome basket was extremely well received. The quality of the house is enhanced by the fact that they have made sure made sure that everything you could possibly need away from home is there. The walks from the house are stunning and if we hadn't wanted to use our car once we'd arrived, we wouldn't have had to. That said, there are so many places to visit and the owners made sure to listen to what we wanted to do and advise on the best places go do it. So much to do that we need to come back!! I highly recommend this house!!!

Perfect hosts in a perfect property in a perfect location. I am already recommending it to my friends!

We’ve stayed in various properties in Devon / Cornwall and beyond over the past few years. The quality of The Willows is second to none.
It’s by far the best property we have stayed in for quality / comfort / cleanliness . Everything you could wish for has been catered for in this 5* property.

Stunning property plus a tremendously warm (but not overbearing) welcome from the owner upon arrival. This is an absolute gem of a property in the perfect location.

We were welcomed by the owners Emma and Warren who showed us around the home and were very helpful We were most impressed with the extras we were given Fresh flowers,Scones with jam and cream fresh milk butter and biscuits and the use of cleaning products,washing tablets ect Not forgetting a bottle of procecco ??

We love this cottage. It's two minutes from the beach and a five minute walk from the town which means you don't have to use your car too much. The owners are very helpful, welcoming and nearby if you need anything. The sofas and beds are very comfortable. The outdoor utility area is ideal when you have sandy dogs and surf boards!

We have visited twice this year and I'm sure we'll go back again.

Fantastic cottage, beautifully decorated, furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly wish for. Super location, dog friendly beach minutes walk away.

A beautifully furnished, well equipped cottage that has all you need for a great holiday - and more!

We had a fabulous stay at The Willows. It was everything we'd hoped for and more. The owners were so welcoming and left personal touches that made a real difference. Excellent location. Loved it!

Emma and Warren have provided everything you would need for a good holiday

Smart and very clean house, convenient for local facilities and beach.

This was a beautiful and well presented property. It is modern but comfortable and equipment for every need. The owners were very pleasant and helpful and the welcoming pack was lovely. We had two small dogs and they settled in perfectly . There was a supply of doggy towels and bowls if required. Well done and THANK YOU. MR and MRS Dewar

A lovely house. So well maintained and the owners have thought of everything. Such a nice welcome too, with home made scones, cream and jam, plus a bottle of prosecco. Owners live opposite and are so kind and helpful, but not in any way intrusive. Highly recommend this beautiful place.

An amazing cottage in a spectacular location two minutes from the beach, excellent attention to detail and for those with dogs the garden truly is enclosed a welcome change to what some descriptions think that it means. The hosts are extremely welcoming and very helpful.

Lay out good. Everything was high end.

Great welcome pack and reception from owners.

All things needed were there.

A beautiful holiday cottage , decorated to a very high standard. Very well equipped- the owners were friendly and welcoming and provided little 'extras' that made you feel very relaxed from the start! very well situated for access to the beach and the coastal path - an excellent place to stay.

The Willows is a beautiful place to stay. The house has been built to a very high standard and is very comfortable. Emma and Warren have thought of everything you could possibly want or need while on holiday and we're very helpful and welcoming. We had a lovely time and thoroughly recommend staying there.

The Willows was an amazing place, a pleasure to stay in. There is everything that one would need for any weather. The cooking facilities were amazing. The layout perfect. The welcome was wonderful. The 'goodies' for the humans and the dog were so generous and much appreciated by all. Well done to Emma and Warren for a true 'winner' of a place. Highly recommendable for any family with or without dog. Thank you.

We had an amazing holiday at The Willows, our best Classic holiday so far. The owners, Emma and Warren, thought of everything and that made our stay hassle free, we simply relaxed and enjoyed every second. Everything is on the doorstep, no need to get in the car. We walked the dogs in Burrows and the beach, went straight out of the house in wetsuits and surfed in the sea for hours and had a nice meal in the town on the way back. Beautiful house, wonderful beach and a perfect holiday for us all! Thank you

New build with lovely furnishings and finished to a high standard. Very clean and in a quiet location near the beach. Friendly and helpful owners. The welcome pack was lovely.

This is a beautiful holiday home, really nicely finished and very well equipped. The owners are extremely helpful, warm and welcoming. Thoughtful touches, like the welcome cream tea, added to the pleasure of our stay, and little things like having hand soaps, bin bags and cleaning products provided make this a very easy place to stay. Westward Ho! is a lovely place for a family holiday and The Willows provided us with the perfect base, just a few minutes walk from the sea. A real gem!

The Willows was a beautiful house in a great location. It is very well equipped light and bright. Warren and Emma have thought of everything. They were fantastic hosts and made us feel very welcome. The little extra touches to welcome us were very much appreciated. We especially loved meeting Puss and Hugo!

Beautiful house and fantastic hosts. Everything has been considered for the visitors comfort.

We found The Willows to be the absolutely perfect property in which to spend your holiday. Everything within the house was new, modern and of an amazing standard which we have not found anywhere else we have stayed. It's beautifully designed and a huge amount of care and attention to detail have gone into making sure that every need has been provided for. Add to this two lovely, welcoming owners, luxurious little extra extras to make you feel welcome and you have the perfect holiday home. Anyone who stays there will enjoy it as much as we did and we will definitely be coming back.
