Fabulous meal!

We had a fabulous meal! I had a spinach and chick pea curry and my husband had a burger. Both meals were fabulous, the children loved the kids menu and we all devoured our desserts!! Such a pretty village, we felt very COVID secure and wished we had time to come back again for another meal. We'll definitely be back again when we're in the area.

Excellent for lunches. Also good walking in the vicinity.

Nearest beach

Instow Beach (13 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.

Nearest walk

Ash Moor Nature Reserve (3 ¾ miles)

A pretty established nature reserve consisting of grassland, meadows, woodland and ponds, and all the associated flora and fauna including orchids, butterflies, dragonflies and hares. The area is accessed via the famous Tarka Trail so don your walking boots or cycle helmets and get out in the great outdoors (not currently entirely suitable for poor mobility or pushchairs). It is also connected to the Devon Wildlife Trust's newest acquisition, the Meeth Quarry Nature Reserve, if you fancy a longer walk.

Nearest town

Great Torrington (6 miles)

Perched on an inland clifftop over the River Torridge, there are some fabulous views in all directions and lots of history to discover as you wander the Pannier Market and bump into historical reenactments along the Tarka Way.

RHS Rosemoor (5 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.

The garden is absolutely gorgeous and very well looked after. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had great locally sourced food. A great day out for adults and children.

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.

Dragon Archery (5 ¾ miles)

This fun day out gives you the opportunity to learn the art of archery. Then put your newly taught skill to the test on dinosaurs, wolves and armoured knights! Much more than just target shooting.

North Devon's Best Kept Secret

An outstanding morning or afternoon out, whether you are trying archery for the first time or are more experienced (we keep coming back). Andy and the team provide excellent personalised guidance and equipment as you transition through the different themed ranges, leading up to the ultimate Dragon Slayer challenge. In these times of Covid concerns, it is so reassuring the team takes health

Fantastic Family Fun!

Dragon Archery is the place to be if you want to try archery for the first time or if you are more experienced. Great challenges suitable for all ages from 8+. Really friendly encouraging team giving one to one coaching to help you get the most out of your experience. Suitable for all weathers...we went on a very wet and windy day in October! Only advice is BOOK EARLY as this attraction is very very popular!! If you are lucky enough to go along, you will see why.

Mrs Worsfold June 2011

A 3 hour archery session which involves shooting dinosaurs, amongst other things not just targets. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I wasn't expecting to. All equipment was supplied, and we were taught very well how to use it. Rather than just having targets to aim at, there are a number of themed areas including dinosaurs and orcs. The time passed very quickly and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Tea on the Green (12 miles)

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.

Mrs Adams August 2015

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!

The Junction Inn (6 ½ miles)

Try the pies at this handsome Victorian Devon inn with pool table and beer garden. Sunday night is quiz night.

Mr Truman September 2020

Warm welcome

The hospitality we received at the Junction Inn was second only to the food. The portions were huge and the tastes were divine. The menu is huge for a relatively small village pub. After a selection of starters we had the venison burger, the steak, ale and mushroom pie and the smothered chicken. Unfortunately we had no space left for desert. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Fantastic roast dinner

Called in here Sunday 10 as close to where we were staying. They managed to fit us in and served us one of the best roast dinners we have had in a long time. Thoroughly recommend.

Halsdon Woods and Nature Reserve (5 ½ miles)

Several kilometres of track wend their way through this 142-acre reserve. Start from one of the two car parks for various circular routes that take in woodland, fields and the banks of the River Torridge

Lovely Walk with views

This is a great walk especially for dogs to run free. Can be steep in places but these can be avoided if needed.
However it is further than the suggestion states and is nearer 12miles / 30min drive from Grasscott .

Mr and Mrs Douglas-Mann August 2017

Through the woods and along the banks of the Torridge.

An old ruined mill covered in ivy, a pebbly beach by the side of the river to skim stones, and a trail up into the woods and along old, beaten paths through this nature reserve looked after by Devon Wildlife Trust makes this a perfect outing to observe our beautiful Devon countryside. Our walk took about two hours, perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll. There are hides ranged around the reserve from which to view the wildlife.
