Why Adrian Hoskins chose Westward Ho!

CHARACTER COTTAGE WITH SUPERB SEA VIEWS IN PREMIER RESIDENTIAL ROADOld Saltys holiday cottage is a 19th century former coach house sitting in an elevated position set high above the seaside resort of Westward Ho! Offering great views down to the long sandy beach of Bideford Bay across the Torridge estuary, towards Saunton and Baggy Point. Some aspects look out towards Lundy Island. Ideally placed for strolling to the beach with your bucket and spade or enjoying a Devon cream tea at The Rockpool Cafe in the village, all the amenities are just a 10 minute walk away (please note there are steep hills).Perfect for touring North Devon, the market town of Bideford is a 5 minutes' drive and is home to the Oldenburg for day trips to Lundy Island. Other attractions well worth a visit include Clovelly, with its cobbled street, The Big Sheep, The Milky Way, Dartington Crystal, RHS Rosemoor Gardens and much more. Walkers will be spoilt with some of Devon's best cliff-top walks from the village as well as Northam Burrows, which is a haven for wildlife. Enjoy the views from the balcony with a glass of wine or stroll into the village for a drink and a meal from a choice of venues. Location: beach, shops and pubs all within 1 mile. Arrival: 3pm.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had sunny days, overcast days, storm overnight- it was brilliant! Perfect holiday to stay in, read, draw and sow, plus rug up and walk along the beautiful beach. With a few outings to local places like Dartington and Clovelly. Also catch up with family

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Old Salty's Cottage. The cottage was well equipped, clean and tidy. Lovely comfy bed and the views from the lounge and bedroom are fantastic (even on a rainy day!) Found some new walks and had nice meals at the Pig on the Hill and The Pier House. We will return.

  • 5 of 5

A holiday cottage you would definitely want to revisit. Clean and tidy, excellent facilities,superb views,good parking, easy booking and good communication.Westward ho! is a lovely little holiday resort albeit a little hilly ( helps to balance out the calories from the cream teas)

I would definitely recommend old salty’s cottage in westward ho!

Old Saltys - A home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Old Saltys Cottage. We love the cottage. It is clean, has everything a family needs for a holiday, it's a home from home. Love the new decor too. The views from the cottage are breathtaking. We look forward to our next stay at Old Saltys.
