  • Dog walking heaven and usually quiet because most people like the facilities that westward ho offer.. which suits me fine.The fishing is sometimes good if you catch the tide right and have a lot of patience. Sheep and horses live there so be careful with your dogs!!..Beautiful surroundings.
  • Lovely area with unique ecosystem. Great place for the kids to run wild, easy access to a great surfing beach with lifeguards in attendance during the summer. There was a fab visitor centre but sadly it burnt down recently. There is usually a snack van and Hocking's ice cream van during the summer but sadly no toilet facilities. There always was fun things to do during the holidays, Competitions, bug finding days etc etc, I'm not sure if they are on this year due to the visitor centre fire. Info can be found on the Northam borough council site.
  • Great walking beach and burrows. Dog walkers heaven. Golf course.
  • Great easy surfing beach. Interesting visitors centre and great value all day parking.
  • A favourite place this, time it right and follow the tide out from Appledore all the way to Westward Ho!
