Beautiful beach

A beautiful, slightly windswept beach. Brilliant for surfing or a walk, with a lovely beach cafe in the dunes. Although the access from a private toll road comes with a (fair) price, this is much easier than getting to the beach by parking in the town (which makes a slightly run-down and shabby impression). Great beach to spend half a day with a picnic!

Felt like I was a kid again

The beach is huge....3miles of it! Although it's a sandy beach, the sand never actually dried out during our visit. But that was great for sandcastle building. Plenty of surfers make use of the beach and the rock pools are fantastic. Great fish and chip shop just up from the beach. Parking is easy. Definitely worth a visit.

Vast expanses of golden sand

Westward Ho! beach is a 'Blue Flag' beach, offering vast expanses of golden sand. Good for surfing, it is patrolled by lifeguards and is one of the safest in the area. An added attraction for youngsters are the many rock pools to explore at low tide.

Nearest walk

The Tarka Trail Westleigh (2 ½ miles)

The Tarka Trail covers over 160 miles of pathways and bridleways in Devon and forms part of the Devon Coast to Coast Cycle Route. The trail will take you pretty much as far as you want to wander with easy flat paths and estuary views. Just watch out for cyclists, it's a popular route.

Nearest town

Westward Ho! (200 yards)

One of only two places in the world to feature a '!' as part of its name, Westward Ho! lays claim to a fantastic beach. Over two miles long the beach offers lots to see and do. Walk along the sandy shore and see if you hap across one of the three wrecks often totally submerged in the sand. Westward Ho! beach is popular amongst surfers and there are lifeguards on duty in the summer. Doggy restrictions apply.

Tea on the Green (150 yards)

A retro delight, to take tea back in the forties and fifties close to the seafront at Westward Ho!. A traditional tearoom with cakes and light bites to be washed down with a variety of teas and coffee. This lovely little cafe was voted the best for 2011/2012 in the North Devon Food Awards.

You need to feel hungry before you call in here.

Fantastic small retro café serving hot and cold light meals along with cream teas to die for. Sit outside looking at the sea and town green on inside and wallow in an era gone by. Food excellent, portions enormous and staff were efficient and friendly.

Still fantastic!

We first found Tea on the Green in 2012, and whenever we've been anywhere close (that means within a 1 and half hour drive!!) we've always spent the day at Westward Ho! and included something to eat here. The lunches are great, with excellent choices (you won't go hungry) and the cakes are magnificent. It's always busy though, so you have to be prepared to wait or maybe sit outside.

A visit a must if you are in Westward Ho

What a lovely little place to stop for tea and cake. Although it was next to where we were staying whatever time of day we walked past it was always full and we determined to try it during our week in Westward Ho so waited across the road until a table outside was empty and ran across before another lucky person was able to sample their lovely food and surroundings. Just amazing.

WOW!!!! The MOST incredible tea shop!

You MUST visit this tea shop! From the outside it's easy to miss or walk past as its not big but once inside it is just fantastic. all decor and music is 1950's and there is so much attention to detail especially the lovely crockery. But best of all the menu is amazing. Cakes are delicious and such a great choice of drinks and food. I'd recommend booking a table to avoid any disappointment!

Instow Beach (2 ¾ miles)

A great beach for children with acres of sand at low tide, shallow waters and usually calm seas. There are plenty of facilities nearby in the village. Dog restrictions apply so please check locally.

RHS Rosemoor (8 ¼ miles)

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

Roses Galore!

The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.

The Square Studio (1 mile)

A quaint arts and crafts shop offering locally produced goods. Arts and crafts workshops are available, contact the studio for further details.

A real gem of a craft shop well worth a visit!

I visited the Square Studio to purchase a couple of birthday gifts for friends and ended up coming away with more!! What an amazing showcase of local talent. Beautifully presented shop with very reasonably priced unique items you really want to buy. I look forward to visiting again and would definitely consider one of their craft workshops when I next visit. What a fun and different activity to do on holiday! Can't wait to go back!

Instow (2 ¾ miles)

Located where the rivers Taw and Torridge combine and flow into the sea, Instow is a pretty waterside village and perfect for a spot for sailing or windsurfing, and for families to take advantage of the sheltered sandy beaches.

Have Cream Tea at the Commodore Hotel

The Commodore Hotel offers Cream Tea for non-residents. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy a good cream tea as well as a gorgeous view across the estuary. If the tide is coming up and the sun is setting, this is a marvelous experience.

Beautiful, sleepy Instow

Instow is a pretty little village and makes a perfect base for exploring North Devon. It retains a sedate pace of life, perfect for winding down from the rat race. Johns' deli provides everything you need to spoil yourself at breakfast time, and there are a couple of restaurants to spoil you at suppertime. The Tarka Trail is on your doorstep and it would be rude not to hire some bikes and meander through the pretty Devon countryside for an hour or two.
