Why Brexit is the Perfect Time for a Holiday in North Devon

With its sandy beaches, amazing food and rich history, it’s no wonder North Devon is so popular among holidaymakers from overseas and here in the UK. And according to the latest figures, there’s never been a better time for a break in Britain. Whether you see it as a blessing or a disaster, Brexit means good value on holidays in the UK for many. Recent months have seen a rise in domestic and inbound tourism which is forecast to continue through the year. So why not make the most of these uncertain times and treat yourself to a week by the sea? We have a fabulous selection of self-catering accommodation to suit a range of budgets – and we’ll even remove the TV and WIFI if you want to enjoy a truly Brexit-free break!

Here are a few reasons why this is the perfect time to visit Westward Living luxury self catering holiday cottages in  Westward Ho!

Cheaper than European Rivals
It’s been quite a while since the UK fared this well in a price comparison with other popular European holiday destinations. The cost of a trip here has fallen considerably since the UK voted to leave the EU and is likely to remain low – at least until a clear picture of what post-Brexit Britain will look like emerges. The Westcountry is enjoying a surge in tourism from home and abroad, and it’s easy to see why, given its inspiring coast, laid-back towns and picturesque fishing villages. Visitors to the UK who don’t make it out of London are missing out – not only on stunning scenery but also on exceptional value for money in rural regions such as North Devon.

Things to Do whilst visiting North Devon
There’s no shortage of activities on offer near Westward Living luxury self catering holiday cottages in North Devon, and most can be enjoyed without breaking the bank. Whether you want to take surfing lessons, book a trip to Lundy Island or enjoy a family outing to the Big Sheep or Milky Way, you can do it without paying an exorbitant amount. The cost of eating out is surprisingly affordable, too, and there’s a brilliant range of restaurants here in Westward Ho! village, a stone’s throw from our luxury self-catering apartments and cottages.

Travelling to Westward Ho!
Whether you live in the UK or you’re travelling from overseas, getting to Westward Living luxury holiday cottages on the North Devon coast has never been simpler. We are roughly an hour from Exeter Airport with flights to many European cities, and Bristol Airport can be reached in two hours. If you’re travelling by car, it’s worth looking at the ferry from France or Spain to Plymouth or Portsmouth, which are both only a couple of hours’ drive from Westward Ho!

Amazing Local Produce
North Devon is famous for its fresh, quality produce, from seafood freshly landed at the local harbour to mouth-watering cream teas with Devon clotted cream, jam and scones. Shop for delicious produce in the area’s groceries, butchers and fishmongers, or enjoy an amazing meal here at Westward Living. Our chef cooks a variety of international dishes if you don’t fancy our traditional fish and chips!
