I have got no issues with people walking there dogs on hear but they need to watch there dogs not just letting them run around and not noticing when they are going to the toilet. Far to many people are just walking along talking to each other and not noticing there dog actions.

Go here for a peaceful break to get closer to nature and away from technology, the people are lovely, the accommodation is quaint and the wildlife is amazing, I saw seal pups, deer and some different species of birds. Once you've been you will want to go back, there is something special about Lundy Island.

Friendly service, good selection of pricing options and the equipment is spot on. The best thing of all however is being directly on the Tarka Trail. With a young family this is ideal as no traffic to contend with. We had a great day out and will use again.

I've always wanted to try Surfing, so I decided to book a myself a group Surfing lesson with Surf South West. When I arrived it turned out that I was the only one in the group (probably because it was off-season). I had my one-on-one lesson with Jack. Jack was really friendly, enthusiastic and made everything super clear and really easy to understand. We ended up having the whole of the sea to ourselves for 2 hours and I managed to stand up fully twice, which was amazing. I would definitely recommend this surf school and in particular a lesson with Jack.

Just spent the most incredible 4 days with a fab group and the Livit adventures crew in North Devon and oh my, what a blast we had. Surfing, kiting, abseiling, climbing, wakeboarding- you name it they do it:) Fantastic Surfing, climbing and kiting coaches and safety was paramount with all sports. Phenomenal hosting by Sarah and Kev with truly delicious food and drinks including party Kegs and Prosecco. As a coeliac sometimes eating in a group can be challenging but this dynamic duo took it in their stride. They rock:) Cool parties, fab hot tubs, Jasper the adventure surf dog, naughty Devon nibbles, this pair have it nailed!

The museum staff gave our 5 year old a quiz and let him ring a bell and claim a prize when he completed it. He had a great time! The models are amazing, I wasn't expecting it to be so good.

Westward Ho Beach

Reviewed By TerryandJane - Bourne, United Kingdom

Small but busy little resort. Clearly a lot of money is being invested with several luxury apartment blocks being built by the sea as well as a number of bars and restaurants. Worth a visit for a walk on the beach and perhaps lunch.
