Westward Living’s Great Traveler Reviews Earn it a Place Among Travelers’ Favorites in the World


Westward Living today announced it has been recognized as a 2021 Travelers’ Choice award winner for Hotel and Specialty Accommodation.  This achievement celebrates businesses that consistently deliver fantastic experiences to travelers around the globe, having earned great traveler reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months. As challenging as the past year was, Westward Living stood out by continuously delighting travelers.


Owners at Westward Living Chris and Kathy Murdoch were delighted with the award, Kathy Murdoch said, “this award could not have come at a better time for us, the last year has been a challenge for so many folks in the hospitality industry.  We have used this time to review, invest and improve our procedures, we are ready for the season ahead and exciting growth plans for Westward Living in the future.  We are so lucky to be able to operate in one of the best tourist destinations in the UK – North Devon.  Here in Westward Ho! we are spoilt for choice with the stunning natural environment on our doorstep, we love working with our local suppliers and will continue to offer the best holiday experience to our guests – thank you to everyone who voted for us”

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent - delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.”

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

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.
