Westward Ho! and Northam Burrows

Two miles of safe family friendly sandy beach known as the Golden Bay, and is famous for its Pebble Ridge. Holidaymakers and locals alike enjoy bathing, surfing, canoeing, and kite surfing - just a few of the sports practiced here.
The South Western Coastal Path runs through Westward Ho! and the Tarka Trail is close by - a must for cyclists and walkers which lies between the beach and Northam Burrows Country Park. Here you will find the Royal North Devon Golf Course and a large area of sand dunes home to a rich variety of birds, insects and wild flowers. Horses, cattle and sheep graze on the Burrows as they did on common land in days gone by.

An old sailing port with the Kathleen & May moored by the wharfe. The town is on a hill overlooking the river and a lovely old bridge, each of the 24 arches are a different size. There are scenic walks from Bideford along the river and the Tarka Trail inland to Torrington or towards Barnstaple along an old railway track. Cycles can be rented for all the family just over the bridge. Along the one mile quayside of Bideford you come across the Lundy booking office for MS Oldenburg trips this then leads you to Victoria Park with excellent children's play area and out door paddling pool and the Burton Art Gallery.
