Everyone loves a family board game on holiday. The cottages are all equipped with complimentary Wi Fi and we have a large selection of DVDs, board games and reading material in reception which are complimentary for our guests to enjoy. Our play barn is a great area for families and kids of all ages to enjoy with table tennis, badminton, pool table and a small heated plunge pool. (Plunge pool open April to September). It is also a great space to meet other families or just have fun together as a family.  

Take a nature trail by accessing the world famous South West Coastal footpath from our grounds. Here you may be lucky enough to spot porpoises, hawk s, badgers, roe deer, foxes and our resident pheasant family.  We have some nature trail fun family maps and beautiful flora and fauna for you to discover.

You don’t need to pack the kitchen sink  in order for you to relax and enjoy your time with us. We have a range of  essential items which are available on request should you require them such as safety socket covers, table corner covers, highchairs, cots and bed rails, shower chairs, moveable ramps, fans and extra heaters.
Family Breaks

Create precious family memories with a luxury family break in North Devon

At Westward Living you will find everything you need for a perfect family holiday. Our collection of beautifully appointed self-catering cottages are furnished to a very high standard and have been designed with multi generational families in mind.  All our cottages have the expected essentials to make you feel like you are visiting your coastal home from home.  

Each of our award-winning self-catering family holiday cottages is annually inspected by Visit England with over half of all properties being accredited 5* and above.  We offer flexible changeover days, either Friday or Monday which allows our guests to enjoy short and long breaks throughout the year.  We are also able to accommodate bespoke dates upon request.

With natures natural playground on our doorstep and 60 acres of private coastal grounds with access to the South West Coastal Footpath, Westward Ho!  beach is great for spending fun family days together. Why not try your hand at surfing, kite flying or even exploring the  abundant rock pools! Winter or summer, this is the only place to be.

The award-winning Westward Ho! beach has waves for the adventurous and sandy coves to explore as well as numerous rock pools to fish and splash in. For pirates, smugglers, surfers and water babies, the sand and sea change with the seasons. Sparkling and inviting in the summer heat contrasted with being fresh and deserted in the mild  days of winter.  

We are in an ideal location to discover the very best of tourist attractions the region has to offer.  The Big Sheep family theme park is less than 3 miles away while the fascinating historical fishing village of Clovelly is a mere 10 miles from your accommodation. There is always so much to see and do locally.

We have a choice of 14 family cottages sleeping between 2-8 guests. Each has its own character and style with room layouts which are sympathetic to families of different sizes to ensure a comfortable stay for all.  If you are unsure which cottage will be the best fit for your family, give our friendly customer service team a call and we will be happy to advise.

Most of the bedrooms in our family cottages can be adapted to singles or doubles depending on your preferences.  Our larger cottages are all single story with private enclosed gardens and family hot tubs. Most importantly they are spacious enough to give the grown ups some privacy once the little ones have gone to bed.
