About Westward Ho!


Westward Ho! is a picturesque seaside village situated on the Atlantic coastline. The A39 road provides access from the towns of Barnstaple, Bideford and Bude. It lies at the south end of Northam Burrows and faces westward into Bideford Bay, opposite Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows

The village name comes from the title of Charles Kingsley's novel Westward Ho! (1855), which was set in nearby Bideford. The book was a bestseller, and entrepreneurs saw the opportunity to develop tourism in the area.  Development of the village began ten years after the 1855 Kingsley novel was published, in order to satisfy the Victorians' passion for seaside holidays.  Westward Ho! is known today for its surfing seas and the long expanse of clean sand backed by a pebble ridge and grasslands which extends for about three miles.

Westward Ho! Is part of the buffer zone that protects the UNESCO Biosphere Area of Braunton Burrows – a unique area of coast and mobile dunes that is listed as being on a par with Ayers Rock and the great Pyramids with regard to international environmental importance.

Westward Ho! has over 2 miles of Blue Flag status sandy beach which is easily accessible from the village end via a slip way and from the Appledore end by a foot bridge. The Pebble Ridge protects the land behind the beach, a natural feature formed of large pebbles, which prevents inundation by high tides. 

We hope you have a wonderful stay with us here in Westward Ho! and look forward to hosting you during your break.
