Welcoming Westward Ho!
This former Victorian seaside village has undergone major redevelopment over recent times, and now offers an eclectic mix of dramatic ultra-modern apartments on the water’s edge, with the imposing Victorian buildings in the distance.
Westward Ho! is noted for its unusual place name. The village name comes from the title of Charles Kingsley’s 1855 novel Westward Ho!
Westward Ho! Has long been a tourist honey pot, with 2 miles of golden sandy blue flagged beaches, arcades, a selection of independent shops, pubs, tea rooms and a rich mix of restaurants to suit most palates.
Westward Ho! Is also the home of English Golf, with England’s oldest golf course Royal North Devon Golf Club, and was the home of the 5 time Open Champion JH Taylor.
