Wake to the sound of seagulls and breathe in the salty sea air at this modern property within half a mile of the beach. Great for active families, it’s right next to the Royal North Devon Golf Club in the popular coastal village of Westward Ho! It’s also brimming with luxury features to make your stay extra comfortable, from underfloor heating to a private hot tub in the back garden.

The property is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and has a reverse-level layout to make the most of the views, with the open-plan living area on the first floor. On a sunny morning, pull back the large bifold doors and step out on to the balcony to enjoy a cup of tea or light breakfast while gazing out over Northam Burrows Country Park towards the sea. Downstairs, both bedrooms have Smart TVs so there shouldn’t be any disagreements over what to watch, while French doors lead out into the garden from the en-suite king-size room. The outside shower with hot water is ideal for rinsing off wetsuits, surfboards or even sandy paws if you have your dogs with you.

Enjoy long walks around the country park, half a mile from the property, keeping an eye out for rare plants and wildlife as you go. Keen golfers also have a chance to play on England’s oldest links course here. A unique pebble ridge links the park to the beach, which stretches out for 2 miles. There’s lots to keep the kids entertained, whether it’s building sandcastles, scouring rock pools, playing in the surf or flying kites.

A lovely place to stay in Westward Ho! We enjoyed our time in the house and appreciated the warmth (under-floor heating) and general high-quality of the setup. The outside shower (with hot water!) was equally fantastic for the hot tub as it was for giving the dog a rinse after playing on the beach.

This is a lovely, well appointed house with plenty of room for 4 people. The hot tub is excellent and we were able to make good use of it in between the rain. The house is in a quiet spot with easy access to the beach/shops both on foot and in a car.

A comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage. Having the living space upstairs gives good views of the sea and country park. Access and parking was easy and the location is great as a base for Westward Ho! and the wider area.

Spent a week with our daughter, son-in-law and 11 week old granddaughter. Nice modern property in excellent location. Master bedroom could accommodate Moses basket but cot would be a No. Twin bedroom very small and other than a tiny built in wardrobe no storage. Excellent location as very quiet.
