Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Plymouth, United Kingdom58 contributions3 helpful votes
Our caravan was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The kitchen area was well equipped and the gas cooker was great. I did like that washing up liquid was provided in a welcome pack. The central heating worked very well and we were never short of hot water. The site is quiet and very well maintained. The staff members were friendly and very helpful. The views were beautiful and it is only a very short walk to Westward Ho! shops where we could find everything we wanted. We highly recommend Hockings ice creams whatever the weather. We loved the rabbits hopping around outside the caravans. My son and I enjoyed our stay so much that we booked before we left to come again in 2024.

Hello mumblebumble, Thanks for leaving us such a lovely review! Glad to hear that you tried a Hockings, we know we're biased but they are just the BEST ice-cream, especially if you have Hockings clotted cream on top! We look forward to seeing you again in 2024.

A very nice, clean and well laid out dog friendly site with ample space between the modern caravans. Set in an excellent location just a very short walk to the centre of Westward Ho and it's wonderful beach and lovely coastal walks,

Lovely site and comfortable accommodation. Our children love Westward Ho! and treat like home from home. I have been visiting the site since I was a young child and it has retained its intimate feel. We will continue to visit over the coming years.

Great location. Only a short walk into town and the beach. The Pier house pub is just a short walk in the opposite direction. The beach Lido is fantastic. Great for people of all ages. There is a park and amusements for children and lots of great places to eat out. There is a big green area in the centre of town where you can just sit and chill out.

We stayed in a brand new pet friendly caravan for 2023, it was lovely with a nice 2 sided balcony with chairs, which had a great sea view, what more could you wish for. We loved it that much we have booked to stay again next year. The park was very clean and well maintained. And we just enjoyed the convenience of just been able to walk a few yards down to the promenade and you get lovely pubs and restaurants, arcades, anything you could want really. All in all we couldn't recommend a better place to stay.

Had a brilliant holiday at Beachside. Perfect location to enjoy Westward Ho! Caravan had amazing views and you can hear the sea at all times. The caravan and site were very clean and staff very friendly. Had a nice visit to Clovelly and Dartington Glass. The Kippling Tors provided amazing views of Westward Ho! Will definitely return to Beachside.

Absolutely love this place. Everyone is so friendly and the accommodation is very clean. You cannot get better located accommodation with the sea pool in sight of the site and town/beach just a couple of minutes stroll. I never leave here without booking for the following year.
