Horse Holiday North Devon

As we are located within the grounds of an ex thorough bred race horse stud farm – Duckhaven Stud, one the highlights of Westward Living at Duckhaven Stud, is having the opportunity to meet the horses and Alan Smith who used to train them all. 
Most of our 5-star luxurious coastal holiday cottages are named after the famous horses from the stud including Star cottage which was named after our Chester Cup Winner Star Player.  It was a wonderful day when Frankie Detorri rode him home to victory for us, Matt our Head Groundsman will tell you all about it as he used to be head lad when Duckhaven was a racing yard.
It's not just horse enthusiasts that are welcome here at Westward Living, it’s also their horses and ponies.  We have a collection of purpose built 5 star gold rated holiday cottages which have been design to accommodate our guests and their horses in adjoining paddocks, you will be able to watch them from your hot tub.   We have livery and DIY options available.  Please call us on 01237 238967 or email us on [email protected] to find out which is the best cottage for you.

We have been awarded the Official COVID-19 secure mark for our high standards in cleaning.

We got married here last year and returned this summer for our first anniversary.  I can not justify in words how wonderful this place is.

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.
