The cottage was lovely, very clean and comfortable with everything you need for a stay away, There were no problems with the wifi & the views were fantastic.
Just be aware the cottage is on a hill.
The cottage is amazing. It has everything you can think of for a comfortable stay. It has been renovated to a very high standard and has amazing sea views. It is spacious and clean with a good outside patio area for dogs and a grass area. It is a 5 minute walk downhill to the shops, restaurants etc. And obviously a steep 10 -15 minute walk back up! The dog walks were excellent. My favourite was walking through the lovely Northam Burrows to the dog beach where you could walk endlessly along the waters edge. Quite exhilarating! The walk along the promenade was also bracing with a lovely place to enjoy a coffee or pint at the end, the Pier House. Westward Ho is very well placed for visiting other resorts/beaches. We went to Bude, Appledore and Instow which were all lovely and on the way back home, as the weather was awful, we stopped at Atlantic Village in Biddeford for some retail therapy. All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. And last but not least, a big thank you to the lovely lady next door, Chris, who was very friendly and helpful!
Sadly we were unable to make the trip due to a sudden illness. Prior to this we asked for entry details for the property by phone or email and never got a reply from owner.We also called as suggested on the mobile number supplied but had no answer or call back. On day of trip we informed owner of the illness and inability to come... We asked about possibility of swapping dates. To this point we have received no aknowledgement or other communication from owner... with or without any answer. The property looks wonderful and perfect for our future stays. However due to the distinct lack of curtesy to reply from the owner we will not be booking this property again.
We stayed at Fairview for a long weekend in March with our dogs.
The house is beautifully decorated and to such a high standard, with underfloor heating in the kitchen and a large bathroom. The owners have added lots of thoughtful touches such as books, binoculars, games, outdoor shower, guide books and maps.
The views are amazing from both the main bedroom and the lounge. It was lovely to sit in bed reading a book with amazing views across the bay and of an evening with a glass of wine in the lounge.
The house is only a short walk into Westward Ho! and there is a lovely walk across the beach and nature reserve/golf course to neighbouring Appledore with its lovely pastel coloured fisherman's cottages.
Westward Ho! is extremely dog friendly, with the Waterfront, the Blue and Green and lost of other bars allowing dogs inside.
There is also a great enclosed garden at Fairview which again has spectacular views. We hope to return in the summer to take advantage of this.
We would highly recommend.
