The Chalk + Ward team are either proud born & bred Devonians or have set up West Country roots due to the amazing lifestyle opportunities our counties offer. It’s fair to say we’re all pretty passionate when it comes to this part of the world and thrive off the natural beauty that resides right on our doorsteps.
With our diverse coastlines, rivers & estuaries, rolling hills, rugged moorland and an abundance of local food & drink specialities, the West Country is a hugely popular tourist destination, with something to offer everyone.
It can be difficult to stand out from the crowd in a marketplace crammed full of leisure & dining options, multiple accommodation choices from glamping and treehouses to luxury hotels and retreats; not to mention the vast array of things-to-do from museums and observatories to water sports and hill walking. Even the most attractive propositions don’t necessarily result in the desired level of footfall or bookings simply due to the sheer amount of competition within our region.
At Chalk + Ward, we understand what it takes to get noticed and carve out a unique position on the South West map. We have a breath of leisure, tourism and hospitality knowledge built up over more than 20 years and have trusted, long-standing relationships with many of the big names within the region.

In a nutshell, we can turn lookers into bookers!
