Cottages for Christmas and New Year in Devon

Celebrate Christmas in Devon and see in the New Year in one of our hand-picked holiday cottages for a festive getaway.Read more

Disappear into the depths of the Devon countryside for a complete and utter getaway for Christmas and New Year. This county is big, so hideout on the moors with your favourite people and celebrate however you like. A cottage for Christmas adds a certain je ne sais quois to this special time of year. New Year breaks are all the better for getting away from the everyday and watching a firework display explode on the horizon.

Wake up on Christmas morn to a stunning sea view or get some of the freshest air on New Year's Day with a coastal walk - Devon has some of the biggest and best beaches for a quiet, reviving stroll. Head inland for rural relaxation but don't forget the big towns and cities like Plymouth for a more urban affair. 

The south coast is all about the calm sailing waters of Dartmouth and the English Riviera, so chill out this Christmas and New Year as you watch the boats bob about in the marinas.
