About Anne Davies/Simon Hebditch

We've owned a holiday home in north Devon for nearly ten years. Links with family and friends first took us to north Devon and we loved the area. We bought our present house in the autumn of 2010 and have refurbished it so it is somewhere we enjoy visiting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was lovely. We felt at home the moment that we stepped through the door. You have obviously re-furbished it and it is really nicely done. It was smashing to wake up in the morning and be able to see the sea.

Janet, April 2011

We had a lovely time in Westward Ho! Your cottage is really beautiful and comfortable, and in an ideal location.

Andy, July 2011

We loved your cottage - it was very comfortable, clean, well-appointed and well-equipped. The location was perfect. It was so peaceful yet within very easy reach of all amenities; and the sea view from the house was wonderful.

Excellent home from home cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this property for a 4 night break. We are a family of 4 and it was well equipped for all of us. We were very fortunate with the weather so outside most of the time. Had we needed to be inside then we would have been more than comfortable. It's obviously a well looked after and loved home and we will be returning.

Lovely, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this homely, comfortable and very well equipped cottage it is literally like home from home. The layout is nice and spacious and a lovely big family bathroom. Parking was available right outside. We enjoyed the back garden and the children had somewhere to play too.

We also enjoyed a trip to Barnstaple, Bideford and would highly recommend a day out at the big sheep if you have children it was brilliant!

Highly recommend a stay in this delightful cottage

Excellent base to explore the local area

  • 5 of 5

A really wonderful house with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Very close to the town centre and the amenities of Westward Ho!

The rooms were surprisingly large and very well maintained. We had a great week visiting local towns, by car, foot and cycle. The sun set is not be missed!

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property is well-appointed as described and has an absolutely charming character. We made full use of the wide-ranging and high quality cookware, including the barbecue one sunny afternoon with fresh fish bought from the Saturday market in Bideford. Although I was unfamiliar with the area before this long weekend, I found we only scratched the surface of the opportunities for cycling (Tarka trail), surfing (a 5 min walk away), rambling (Hartland & Peppercombe) and quintessentially English pubs (The Hoops Inn). There really is so much stunning beauty to explore I cannot wait to come back to this brilliant base.

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this delightful cottage in April. The welcome tray was a lovely touch (biscuits went straight away!) It had everything anyone would ever need. The location was perfect, shops and restaurants just a 5/10 minute walk. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, lovely villages , Appledore being a favorite of ours. The sunsets in Westward Ho! really have to be seen. We had been recommended to go to Tea on The Green in Westward Ho! but unfortunately missed it as closed Monday And Tuesday, we will however visit next time as we look forward to staying again! I would like to add that the owner was particularly kind in offering to return a jumper I had left behind in the cottage, excellent customer service. I would gladly recommend to friends and family any time!

Delightful holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

Have just had a lovely Easter in the cottage and Westward Ho. The cottage is in a great location with views of the sea from the main bedroom and is close to shops and restaurants. It is very comfortable and cosy, extremely clean, easy to manage and there is a lovely decking area in the garden to relax in. Come sun or rain, and there was both over the holiday period, there is plenty to do in the area.

Westward Ho! is on the coast. It has a huge, sandy Blue Flag beach which is five minutes walk from the cottage. The beach has a lifeguard in the summer and is popular with surfers and swimmers. There are lots of other beaches within a short drive.


45 minutes from Junction 27 on M5. Exeter airport one hour's drive. Nearest train station Barnstaple. Local buses. Use of car recommended but not essential.


Main nearby towns are Bideford (3 miles) and Barnstaple (10 miles). The quaint fishing village of Appledore, with its craft shops and restaurants, is 1 mile away.

North Devon is ideal for a holiday whether you want to walk, swim, cycle, horse ride or simply relax. There are plenty of local visitor attractions to suit all ages. Along the coast is the famous fishing village of Clovelly and the wild Hartland Peninsula with its lighthouse.
