New Year Breaks in Devon

New Year’s Eve breaks can be booked from 1 November, although they can be agreed from 1 October at the Owner’s discretion if you’re hoping to book in advance. New Year’s Eve is a magical time of year where celebrations and merry-making are plentiful. Take a short break to join in with the action.

Winter Breaks in Devon

Winters in Devon are often among the mildest in the world, thanks to its latitudinal position.

Winter sees many dog restrictions lifted from beaches as well, so you can enjoy your break with your best friend too.
