Group get aways made easy

Group Getaways Made Easy


We all love time away with friends, but sometimes it just gets too complicated. Well, at Westward Living, we can accommodate up to 62 people in 14 cottages! For a special occasion, family holidays, birthday parties or anniversaries, our choice of self-catering holiday cottages allow you to enjoy precious time together but have a bit of personal space, too.

Check out these fantastic reasons to book your group holiday with Westward Living.

  1. Separate holiday units

We know that you love your friends and family, which is why you want to go on holiday with them. However, sometimes, group gatherings can get a little bit too much. After all, sometimes you want to enjoy a cup of tea without having to offer one to 15 other people, or you may just need a little downtime. Our accommodation offers the perfect solution; you can spend time with the group but retreat to your cottage for some privacy.

  1. Generous living areas

At Westward Living, we are all about enjoying family time together and so all of our cottages have generous living areas where groups can cook, dine and drink together. Gallopsand Furlongin particular have very generously proportioned dining areas.

  1. Fully equipped

All of our cottages are 4 and 5-star, which means that they are fully equipped. Our kitchens feature coffee makers or cafetières, as well as enough pots, pans, crockery and cutlery for the number of beds. If a group is cooking together, they are more than welcome to mix and match, as long as everything ends up in the right cottage at the end of the stay!

  1. Communal areas

Our facilities include communal barbecue areas, outdoor and indoor play areas, plunge pool and The Old Barn, with seating for up to 45 people, which can be used by guests upon arrangement.

  1. Everybody welcome

Often, group holidays fail before they have even started because everybody has different requirements and it is impossible to find something that meets all of them. Each of our holiday cottages is unique, and we pride ourselves in the fact that everyone can find their happy place with us. Whether you are looking for somewhere that accommodates pets, you require full wheelchair access, or you are craving a bit of luxury, Westward Living caters to a range of tastes, needs and budgets. We even have space for your horse!

  1. Flexible accommodation

Just like Goldilocks, groups often have trouble finding accommodation that is just right; just as you find the perfect place, you realise that it is either too big or too small. Our cottages sleeping 2, 3, 4, 6, or 8, with some twins converting to king-sized doubles, so you can find the perfect combination of cottages to suit the group’s needs. Whether you need space for teens and tweens to hang out, your group includes one dog lover and one who’s not-so keen, you have a couple alone or with a small baby who would like some privacy, or you need full access and disabled bathrooms, you can find the perfect combination of cottages to be perfect for all members of the group.

  1. Lashings of outdoor space

With plenty of outdoor space, direct access to the North Devon Coastal footpath, and 2 miles of glorious beach on your doorstep, there is plenty of outdoor space for your group to blow off steam.

  1. Prime tourist attractions

North Devon is loved by tourists and locals alike, and there are plenty of nearby attractions guaranteed to suit all members of the groups. From local toddler groups to Wakeboarding, world-class golf to award-winning days out, all members of your group will find something they love doing on their stay at Westward Living. The convenience of our location means that different members of the group can spend the day as they please, coming together in the evening to reflect on their day and relax as a group.

If you are interested in making a group booking for a family event or special occasion it is a good idea to book early in order to avoid disappointment. For more information about availability and special offers, get in touch.

We loved our stay, the cottage has stylish decor and furnishings and its right on the South West Coastal footpath with wonderful views, great for early morning and late evening walks to see the sunrise and sunset.
