Fantastic property with great views!

Mrs Scattergood J,

Fantastic property at the centre of Westward Ho, a good 10 min walk to the beach where you will find lots of room and shops etc.... fantastic views from balcony of property.

Mrs L,

Wonderful, spacious house, with great amenities. Four bedrooms, two ensuites and one family bathroom served five adults well. Lovely views from each floor. Somewhere to sit quietly and read, watch TV, a second living room, a desk for your laptop, and cook a lovely meal from the modern kitchen. Was a treat for the week, we really loved our stay.

Previous Customer,

This was our second visit in the matter of weeks, we loved our first visit so much we could not wait to return. The Big Beach Hut was just as amazing a second time around and with glorious sunshine we were able to enjoy our evening meals on decking area. There is nothing you can fault about this home - perfect location, ideal for families and amazing views. Can’t wait to book our next trip.

Mrs W,

We have just returned from a week at the Big Beach Hut and can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful homes we have ever stayed in. It felt like a home from home. The owners have thought of every little detail that a family could want or need. The place was immaculate, the decor beautiful and all the little touches didn't go unnoticed. We loved the fact there were two living spaces and a massive family kitchen/diner. In terms of location, it's perfect again... you can walk into Westward Ho and you are only a short drive to many of the local family attractions. We can honestly say that we have had the best holiday, and I expect we will be returning in the future. You can't beat waking up every morning to views of the sea.

Mrs W,

Great location, ideal if you love walking as amazing walks on your doorstep. You can watch the sunset from the property... Thoroughly recommend black church rock walk.
