About the neighbourhood
In 1855 Charles Kingsley wrote 'Westward Ho!' Set in nearby Bideford, a local man sets sail to follow Francis Drake for the new world to make his fortune. The book was a huge success and local entrepreneurs built a hotel next to the sea to cater for visitors. The tourism industry grew and they named the area Westward Ho! Westward Ho! has grown from the original Victorian resort to include villas converted to flats, homes for locals and a range of holiday chalets and up-market flats and houses. Local businesses work hard year-round to provide something for everyone to enjoy - local cafes, souvenir shops, restaurants, pubs, shops and a range of water sports and events are nearby.
Getting around
A car is needed to explore the coast and inland villages or sights of outstanding natural beauty in the wider area. Cornwall is just 29 miles away.
