Staying with us for a wedding or conference

If you are lucky enough to be getting married in the Ocean Kave, you won’t need to worry about keeping your guests entertained. Hidden in the cliffs above Mermaid’s Pool, our venue is not only a magical place to tie the knot, but also close to some of North Devon’s best bars and restaurants. Surrounded by stunning countryside with breathtaking views of the Atlantic, you can expect complete seclusion and privacy. But that doesn’t mean we’re hard to get to. Your guests can stay on the venue’s doorstep, in our luxury holiday cottages and bespoke seafront apartments. There’s loads to do in Westward Ho!, too, so you can rest assured that your friends and family are having an amazing time while you get ready for your big day.  
Here are a few tips on things for wedding guests to do in Westward Ho!

Watching the Sunset with a Bite to Eat

There’s no shortage of great places to eat and drink in Westward Ho!. Everything from stylish seafront bars to charming old pubs can be found in the heart of the village, so your guests won’t have to go far for a great night out. With its laid-back atmosphere and views of the waves, the Beach Bar Diner is a popular choice for a tasty burger, steak or pizza. The Thatched Inn is a lively place to continue the night, with local ales and ciders and live music.

Surfing at Our Blue Flag Beach

Westward Ho! Beach is a glorious stretch of golden sand with some of North Devon’s best surfing conditions. It’s a great spot for beginners and there are a number of surf schools if your guests fancy booking a lesson and catching their first wave.

Beer Tasting at the Big Sheep

The Big Sheep is one of the region’s best-loved attractions, with sheep races, rollercoasters and plenty more. It’s also home to an award-winning brewery, Country Life, where guests can sample a variety of traditionally made ales.

Exploring the Coast

Weddings at Ocean Kave are a chance to explore the stunning North Devon coast. On the doorstep of our luxury wedding accommodation, fishing villages, clifftop walks and secluded, rocky coves await discovery. A few miles east of Ocean Kave, Clovelly is home to winding, cobbled lanes, donkeys and fishing boats bobbing in the harbour.


Just a couple of miles along the coast from our bespoke cottages and apartments, Royal North Devon Golf Club features England’s oldest golf course and is a wonderful location for friends to enjoy a round. 


Described as “similar to snowboarding or skateboarding – but on water”, wakeboarding is brilliant fun. North Devon Wake Park specialises in group sessions, with an aqua-park, volleyball court and Ringo rides. 

Experience the Ultimate High

Moments from our luxury self-catering accommodation in Westward Ho!, the Ultimate Adventure Centre offers a range of exhilarating activities which are bound to keep your guests entertained. The centre’s high ropes course, known as the Ultimate High, is perfect for groups.

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