The Estate

While you’re staying with us, we want to ensure you’re ‘living your West Life’ by immersing yourself in the perfect blend of nature, beauty & discovery at our rural retreat, whilst enjoying home-like comfort with a touch of class. Nestled in picturesque countryside and situated in 27 acres of stunning estate and woodland, West Ford is beautiful, yet wild. The estate truly is a “slice of heaven in Devon” and has been kept largely unspoilt, giving guests a taste of rural estate living.

Memories that will last long after your break with us ends.

As the world slowly embraces social interaction, here at West Ford we can offer you the opportunity to reconnect with the great outdoors by enjoying the magnificent Devon countryside, whether that be just you or with your family & friends. The feeling of being ‘in nature’ can do wonders for our wellbeing and what could be better than doing this with the people you love.

West Ford is perfectly located for exploring North Devon, Exmoor and the surrounding area. With an endless choice of historical sites and glorious gardens, through to family attractions and unspoilt countryside & coastline… there really is something for everyone nearby.

Whether you’re wanting your holiday to be active, cultural… or simply just time to relax & unwind, West Ford can offer the base for you & your family to have the staycation you dream of.

We’re always delighted to welcome people to West Ford and to help them enjoy all it has to offer. We’ll look forward to welcoming you.”
