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.

RHS Rosemoor (6 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.

Tea on the Green (5 ½ 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.

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 Chichester Arms (3 ½ miles)

This traditional thatched village pub is packed with rustic charm. Aiming to serve mouth-watering food concocted from the best local produce, the Chichester Arms is a popular choice for those looking for good pub-grub at reasonable prices. Parking is available and there is outdoor seating for those sunny days.

A traditonal thatched village pub with a good reputation for quality locally sourced food. A very good wine selection and local ales on tap. The pub suffered a fire in 2007 but has been sympathetically restored back to its former glory.

Love the laser games for a great family activity!

We really love this place and always enjoy a 2 hour laser session as a family. It's a fun activity you can do with the kids. Where else can you legally shoot the stuffing out of each other?! Really friendly staff who make the games and whole experience great fun. My son loves it so much he didn't want to go anywhere else for his 10th birthday this year which involved us all having a week's holiday in Devon as we are from Basingstoke!!!
