Did you know...Westward Ho! was named after an 1855 novel of the same name?
Named after the novel by Charles Kingsley, the village of Westward Ho! near Bideford offers a clean, sandy beach which stretches for two miles and is known as the Golden Bay. With strong surfing conditions and the famous Pebble Ridge, beach holidays are well worth considering. Westward Ho! is part of the South West Coast Path and is also close to the Tarka Trail, making the area a must for keen walkers and cyclists.
