Westward Living Luxury Holiday Cottages support the Freedom Centre with a donation of 40 beds.

We love to support our local community here in North Devon, in order to maintain our high standards as a  provider of luxury self-catering accommodation, this means we do need to replenish our beds, linen and furniture on our regular basis.  It is really important to us to recycle whereever possible and it is also equally as important that we support our local community in North Devon.  In 2021 we had the opportunity to donate 40 full bed sets  to a much loved and respected local charity, the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple.

Freedom is a well-known “needs led” local charitable organisation who support the vulnerable and socially excluded in the local community of North Devon. Our beds have been rehomed and are now being enjoyed by many folk accross North Devon.

Owners of Westward Living Kathy & Chris Murdoch had heard about the outstanding work done carried out by Freedom and were delighted to have the opportunity to support them by donating 40 beds from the Westward Living Holiday cottages in Westward Ho!

The Freedom Day centre believes everyone has value and with love and support can be helped to reach their own potential. They provide non-judgemental support that allows each person to find solutions that work and help them to regain control of their lives.  The supported housing provides safe houses for vulnerable people and the beds will used to assist their clients in North Devon.

Kathy Murdoch said, “We put a post out on social media, the Westward Ho! community page, asking for local charities to contact us if they were in need of beds, we were so pleased to have been able to work with Phil and his team and it’s a really great result that the beds have gone to Freedom.  

Coincidentally the day that we spoke to Chief Executive Phil Noall and coordinated the donation, I was contacted by an old friend who had benefited from the services of Freedom many years ago, it certainly transformed his life and I sincerely hope that our donation of beds will help others to get a good night’s sleep on their journey with Freedom”.

“In my opinion, Devon offers the best accommodation UK, and it’s important that we support the community through tourism" For more information about the Freedom Centre visit the website on https://freedomcommunityalliance.org.uk

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.
