Westward Living - An award winning collection of 14 Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Westward Ho!, North Devon



LATEST UPDATE: 22nd May 2021


We are so happy to finally be able to welcome our guests back to our COVID-19 secure self catering holiday cottages in Westward Ho!


Now is a good time to start planning your 2021 holidays.  Our terms for 2021 bookings are 20% deposit with the balance due 6 weeks prior to arrival. If there was another lock down or the post code on the booking form was prohibited to travel due to Government Guidelines in 2021 we will refund 80% in full but we will need to carry the 20% deposit over against another stay with us (there is no time limit on this).


We take our guests safety very seriously and we have attained the Visit England "We're good to go" accreditation which is awarded to businesses in recognition that they have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing.  Torridge (our local authority) has been one of the safest COVID-19 track records in the country.  


We look forward to welcoming you to North Devon!

Where luxury & location matter most
Westward Living is a family owned business offering luxurious and stress-free self catering holidays in a beautiful coastal location on the North Devon coastline.  The owners Kathy and Chris live on site with their young family and Raffles our much loved Labrador who enjoys accompanying guests on coastal walks from our private access onto the South West Coastal Footpath.
All our cottages are named after famous racehorses who used to reside and be trained within the grounds when Kathy’s Dad Alan Smith trained his horses at Duckhaven Stud.   Back in 2010 the couple had a vision to create a relaxed and luxurious setting for couples and families to escape from it all in a private 60 acre location with close proximity to the beach and many great places to eat and explore.
Since the business started we have won many significant tourism awards including Gold Winner for Self Catering Accommodation Provider in the South West Tourism Awards.

Its all about the little touches, from your cream tea on arrival to personalised holiday planning ideas, we are here as much or as little as you need us.  

There is so much to see and do and we are dedicated to sharing this beautiful part of heaven in Devon with our guests.
