Autumn Breaks Devon
Once the summer crowds have gone home, most holiday destinations close up shop for the autumn and winter. But in the beautiful South Devon region of the English Riviera we’re open all year round, letting you experience the changing seasons in all their glory. The shelter provided by towering Dartmoor to the northwest means that this part of Devon benefits from a milder microclimate. This makes it uniquely appealing and subtly beautiful all year round.
During the autumn, Torquay, Brixham, Babbacombe and Paignton all take on a different personality. Less crowded than during the height of summer and with a gentle onshore breeze to keep the temperatures warm, these traditional Devonian towns embrace the autumn with a blaze of festivals, events and attractions that are bound to keep everyone of all ages entertained. Whether you’re here for a weekend break away or a longer half term autumn holiday, the English Riviera doesn’t slow down just because there’s an ‘r’ in the month!
Accommodation in Torquay, Paignton and the surrounding South Devon towns is available all year round – from luxury five star hotels and ultra-chic apartments right through to traditional Devon cottages complete with roses around the door. For couples looking for a romantic retreat, nothing beats a long walk through autumn leaves of gold and red and then snuggling up together in front of an open fire with a bottle of locally produced fine wine. For families, there’s plenty of year round entertainment with a myriad of attractions, fun parks and indoor water centres.
Halloween on the English Riviera
Want to discover some ghoulies and ghosties on your autumn break? There are some wonderful events taking place over the Halloween half-term week to keep everyone entertained. Discover secret hideaways and the region’s spookier past on treasure trails and ghost walks. Or why not try pumpkin carving or dress up as your favourite ghostly apparition for a fun Halloween party?
Even if the weather does turn a little chilly in the autumn, there’s one thing that’s always warm in South Devon and that’s the welcome. Why not browse our website to find out more about autumn breaks in the English Riviera, including details on events, accommodation and booking?
