This shop is fantastic for the kids. We spent quite a bit of money in here, on beach stuff; shoes, boats, covers, tents, buckets, spades etc. The guy who runs the shop it is really friendly and chatty. We saw him occasionally around the harbour after the shop had closed he always spoke and said hi.There was one occasion where my daughter had dropped her lolly on the ground – he was just pottering around outside getting some fresh air and he saw her crying. He heard her say that she'd dropped her lolly and he immediately came across and said come with me and I'll get her another one. Now I know this isn't a lot of money, probably 30p, but it was the gesture and the attention. He shouted to a guy in the shop and got her another lollipop. Like I say, it was the gesture that stood out and showed the great service and brilliant customer care.They are very reasonably priced and only a stones throw away from the beach.Excellent shop. Excellent service!

We have been to Westward ho! For many years now, and this shop has probably everything you need for your beach trip, and a lot more! We seem to be collecting the solar nodding toys that are always a delight to look at in the window. Superb staff, and VERY helpful. See you again in 2 weeks!
