There's plenty to do for families on holiday at Smythen Farm North Devon holiday cottages. We can personally recommend some excellent walks, bike rides and local attractions.
For those looking for something a little different, why not learn to surf at our local surf school in Westward Ho.
The North Devon Surf School have taught people to surf from every walk of life, ability and all fitness levels, not to mention age variations.
But the common factor is fun. Yes, fun. You will learn to surf quicker and easier if you just relax and have fun!
Literally thousands of people have learnt to stand up and ride a wave after a couple of lessons with their unique coaching technique that works.
Lessons are in small groups so you can learn at your own pace and we get to spend lots of time with each person.
Westward Ho! has the European blue flag award for clean water and is patrolled by the RNLI lifeguards. The surf school is situated at the Westward Ho! end of the beach at the Burrows entrance, this is actually a country park with a golf course and lots of parking and picnic space.
The experienced surfers tend to head off to the more powerful waves of Croyde, Woolacombe and Newquay... brilliant!
