Two of the best links golf courses within a short drive from the hotel
ROYAL NORTH DEVON
Royal North Devon at Westward Ho! can rightly claim to be the cradle of English Golf. Founded in 1864, it is the oldest golf course in the country and is regarded as the St Andrews of the South. The golf course is as tough as any of the UK’s more famous links layouts and has recently been placed in Golf World 's "Top 100 Courses in the World" that a golfer “must play”.
2 Courses and 36 Holes of beautiful championship links golf, set in the heart of North Devon. The land at Saunton Burrows has hosted golf since 1897 and given us today’s premier golf course in the West Country since Herbert Fowler (famed designer of Walton Heath, The Berkshire, and Delamere Forest to name just a few) created the East course in the 1920s.
So many happy faces!

The Tarka Trail
The Tarka Trail is a pedestrian and cycle way in the North Devon Biosphere Reserve. It runs in a 163 mile figure-of-eight through landscapes little changed from those described by Henry Williamson in his classic 1927 novel Tarka the Otter. Parts of it coincide with the South West Coast Path.
south west coast path
Whether you’re looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beautiful view, or for a challenge like no other in hiking the entire South West Coast Path National Trail of 630 miles from Somerset's Minehead around to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset, you’ve come to the right place…
Learn to surf!
Head down to the North Devon Surf School, the highest rated surf school in the UK running surfing lessons since 1988. They have a purpose built surfing centre just 50 metres from Westward Ho! beach and only 10 minutes drive from the hotel.
We are blessed with probably the two best beaches for kite surfing with 3 ½ miles of epic sands. North Devon Kitesurfing is the only British Kitesurfing Association approved school.
Although only three miles in length, and half-a-mile wide the island is often compared to that of Galapagos. This is all set against a backdrop of stunning natural rugged beauty, making it a walker’s paradise.
Owned by and incorporating the National Trusts Carriage Museum, Arlington Court is an Intriguing Regency house and impressive collection of horse-drawn vehicles, set in a picturesque garden
Hartland Abbey with its beautiful gardens and grounds welcomes visitors from the end of March until October. There is also a popular open air theatre operating in the summers with some great productions.
