The five-star gold, luxury accommodation features large, bright open-plan living, with intimate dining area and relaxing lounge. The fully equipped kitchen is perfectly conducive to cooking together but if you would prefer you can order take away from the broad choice of local restaurants, venture out to one of the many high -end pubs and restaurants in the area, or treat yourselves to a private dining experience with a menu designed to your tastes by our talented head chef.

Exposed wooden stairs lead you to The Paddocks’ piece de resistance: the ornate, open-plan bedroom, complete with illuminated jacuzzi bath. Egyptian cotton bedding, vintage French-style furniture and opulent décor make this a room built for relaxation. As you sink into the sumptuous whirpool bath, you will feel the stresses and strains of day to day life drift away.

On a warm day, you can relax on sun loungers in your private patio, dine al fresco or take a short walk to admire the sunset. On cooler days, The Paddocks will offer you a haven of warmth against the elements; curl up on one of the recliner sofas with a book in front of the realistic woodburning stove or enjoy a film on the LCD TV.

If you are feeling adventurous, the surrounding area has plenty to offer. There are a few fascinating local attractions nearby and there is access to the South West Coastal Footpath direct from Westward Living. Explore the coast; walk into the village of Westward Ho!; visit the beach, or check out the local boutiques and shops.

Whatever the season, this beautiful part of the country has something magical about it. In the spring, meadows and forests come to life, while in the winter, the craggy coast looks at its most romantic.

Relax in your luxury home-from-home and enjoy the simple pleasures of life in North Devon on your romantic holiday.
