Spend Christmas in Devon (subject to Government restrictions!)
There’s no getting away from it – the mornings and afternoons are growing shorter, darker, and there’s a cold bite to the mornings! With light at the end of the tunnel amidst the pandemic, it’s time to embrace the winter season and start planning for the most wonderful time of the year in Devon.
Although Christmas may look quite different this year, a staycation in the UK remains a viable option, government regulation dependent of course! Devon is a fantastic choice for a cosy, family-oriented and wholesome Christmas break.
The South West is a sought-after stay across all seasons, being the ultimate spot to enjoy the outdoors, fresh air and charming towns. We have put together some ideas of what you could get up too in a Devonian December, so you can get excited for the festive season in a green, gentle and slow-paced place.
After an unsettling and volatile year, quality time with your loved ones is extremely important. Escape to the coast and countryside and get back to nature with your family. Squabble over scrabble, give and receive gifts, and enjoy a blustery family walk along the coast.
Charming Seaside Villages
The South Hams has plenty of picturesque villages dotted along the coast. With Brixham, Dartmouth, Totnes and Salcombe just a short drive away from our Devon apartments, you are spoilt for choice with towns to explore, grab a coffee and enjoy a fish and chips overlooking the colourful harbours.
