Surfing at Our Blue Flag Beach

Beer Tasting at the Big Sheep
The Big Sheep is one of the region’s best-loved attractions, with sheep races, rollercoasters and plenty more. It’s also home to an award-winning brewery, Country Life, where guests can sample a variety of traditionally made ales.
Exploring the Coast
Weddings at Ocean Kave are a chance to explore the stunning North Devon coast. On the doorstep of our luxury wedding accommodation, fishing villages, clifftop walks and secluded, rocky coves await discovery. A few miles east of Ocean Kave, Clovelly is home to winding, cobbled lanes, donkeys and fishing boats bobbing in the harbour.
Just a couple of miles along the coast from our bespoke cottages and apartments, Royal North Devon Golf Club features England’s oldest golf course and is a wonderful location for friends to enjoy a round.
Described as “similar to snowboarding or skateboarding – but on water”, wakeboarding is brilliant fun. North Devon Wake Park specialises in group sessions, with an aqua-park, volleyball court and Ringo rides.
Experience the Ultimate High
Moments from our luxury self-catering accommodation in Westward Ho!, the Ultimate Adventure Centre offers a range of exhilarating activities which are bound to keep your guests entertained. The centre’s high ropes course, known as the Ultimate High, is perfect for groups.
